Nice soft smokey aroma. Some sweet pepperiness too. Some thinness to the palate, noticeable carbonation. Slightly less exciting in the taste. A nice smoky roast, dry, touch woody, burnt wood. Has a kind-of wooden barrel aged feel to it, that I like. And that charred wood stays for thhe finish. Shame about the thinneess, but on the flip-side, there’s no alcohol in the taste. In the finish you can detect some vapour, but it’s not out of place. I lov Menno’s brews, but for some reason the smoked ones always leave me disappointed (only relative to the level of brilliance I expect from Menno, not in an absolute scale, as you can hopefully tell).

SVD (718) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle at home, Black beer with a small head, aroma is smoke, Taste is smoke, some malt, hint of spices. Hmm not a big fan of smoked beers, and the chili isnt that outspoken, not bad but not awesome.

mansquito (3866) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2015
Les Fleurs du Malt, Lyon tap: Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is strong peat smoke and some dark chocolate. Taste is thick and smoky at first, but as your mouth gets used to it, the thick, slightly sweet maltiness comes through more. Quite complex, with a warm finish. Low carbonation. I didn’t get much chili.

adasko (652) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Aromat czekoladowy, słodowy, wędzony, delikatne nuty szynkowe i alkoholowe. Piwo brunatne, niemal nieprzejrzyste, z rubinowym refleksem. Nietrwała piana. Nieładne drobiny drożdży unoszące się w piwie. W smaku gorzka czekolada, kakao. Bardzo wyraźna kwaskowość, wędzonka tylko delikatnie zaznaczona. Piwo bardzo wodniste, brak mu ciała. Jest też nieco zbyt mocno wysycone, ale to przyjemnie współgra z nutą kwaśną. W posmaku delikatna kawowa/czekoladowa goryczka. Ogólnie bardzo ciekawe i dość zaskakujące piwo.

maekchu (2505) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Big smoky nose, with chocolate and wood. Dark brown, translucent edges. Chocolatey initial, sourish fruit, smoke in mid palate. Some peppers hit in late mid palate and linger lightly in final. Medium body. Smoke, yes; peppers are gentle. Very pleasant.

KyotoLefty (6964) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 21, 2015
Bottle (06/05/13) from Taniguchi. Smoky nose--big, with chocolate, bonito flakes, bacon, lightly spicy, lots of rich umami. Black with a thick, bubbly head. Rather sweet, smoky but less than the nose, wood, caramel, chocolate. A bit oxidized by now, berries and some peat. The the tingly chili pepper burn comes in. Bitter, hot finish, medium roast. Body is a bit light.

Cool_Bond (1793) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2015
The scent is really heavy, almost like a slap in the face. The aroma of caramel, ash, stables and some fruitiness. The taste of ashes, dark coffee, roasted malt, soy sauce, caramel and some chilli. Good bitterness that fills the mouth for a long while. Too much carbonic unfortunately. Bottled 16/08/2011. Would be enjoyed within 4 years according to the bottle so my rating is plenty of this beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Garrold (2141) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2015
33cl bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Clear, very dark, reddy brown. Film of tan head. Savoury, ham smoke. Wood smoke. Caramel. Some dark, dried fruits. Mostly charred wood, though. Taste is caramel sweet. Earthy dry. Light, charred bitterness. Some chilli heat on the palate. Rich, and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes savoury, smoky dry, with a bittersweet close. I found this full, and rich, but I’m a bit of a wuss with these big, smoky beers. Bit much for me.
