Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle 330ml at Volo
Aroma: strong smoky notes, bold in character. Phenolic but one sided , lacking bit of malt sugars to balance.
Look: handsome look, large raising creamy beige cap. Dark brown base. 4+
Taste etc.: Potent hefty smoke , one sided. Smoke cured meat. Delicious choice for smoked brew lovers.

Bottle 0,33l - black with beige head. Aroma of smoked plum and forrest fruits. Very good drinkable, because of low carbonation. The smoke is very light and it just underlines and rounds up the taste. Alcohol perfectly hidden.

Bottle, 33cl, 1 y.o. Pours dark with thin nicely looking coffee-style foam that stays for a long time. Aroma is chocolate, roasted meat, dark coffee. Taste is pure stout with caramel enriched with amazingly well-balanced roasted note. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.

thanatosti (978) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
33 cl. bottle@ home, gift from Sinterklaas. Pitch black with a small quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma of smokey roasted malts but no trace of the chili peppers that must be in them. Not the fruity aroma nor the heat. Nice bitter sweet roasted taste.

sucharek147 (33) - Dębica, POLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Barwa ciemno brunatna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana niezła, ale w miarę szybko opada. Aromat ciekawy bardzo złożony. Jest bekonowa wędzoność, palone słody i lekka fenolowość. Smak również ciekawy, Jest lekka słodycz i kwaskowatość, a w kierunku finiszu do głosu dochodzą palone słody. Piwo jest z pewnością warte spróbowania.

Maakun (826) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
33cl bottle. Black with very nice looking creamy beige head. Black berries, smoke, very earthy. Some tobacco, rye bread, sour cream and yoghurt. Light sweet with a hint of bitterness through the smoke, and a light sourness from beginning to end. Medium bodied with bit slick feel. Nice complex stuff, though it’s just slightly too sour and yoghurt for me. Also didn’t get any chili at all. Not sure if it’s supposed to be like this or if it’s a unwanted infection...

0,33l fles gedeeld met jerommeke, donker bruin met een licht bruine kraag. Geur is, rook bacon, hamkaas chips met ook cacao en likeur. Smaak begint vol kruidig met een mooi espresso afdronk. Mooi vol romig mondgevoel.

Maarten1993 (373) - - OCT 31, 2014
Drank with Bram and Marijn 30-10-2014 for Brams birthday. Did not like the beer. It has a very strong smoke-smell, unpleasant. The taste begins with harsh roasted ham, not my thing. Continues with some nice sweetness and ends with the spicyness. That was also not particularly tasteful. The beer is rich and expressive, just did not like the palate of tastes very much. Mouthfeel was good, nice thickness and good carbonation (not too much, not too few).

angel77 (1093) - oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 16, 2014
Botella de 75 cl numero 298 de 432 en el Lupulo, en el momento el 04-07-2012. elaborada 20-01-2011. embotellada 18-02-2011.Color negro con bastante espuma oscura al principio que se queda en casi nada hacia media botella. Sabores ácidos tipo saisson y brettanomyces que principio, en frío, que van disminuyendo a medida que calienta aunque siempre se mantienen presentes, ligeros toques de cacao y chocolate con maderas empapadas en licor de vinos blancos, solo al final y con casi temperatura ambiente se afloran las notas ahumadas y tostadas maltosas propias de una stout o porter. Ligeros toques de chile, flojos y no tan presentes como me gustaría Cuerpo medio con 8.2 vol bastante buenos y con un paso por boca bastante ligero y líquido mas parecido a un licor que a una cerveza. bien de gas, sobretodo al principio. Buena en general pero falta de mas ahumado y sabores maltosos espesos.

DSG (6337) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 12, 2014
[9/28/14] Draught sample at Borefts After Festival 2014 in Rotterdam. Dark brown to black. Lovely smoky meaty aroma. Roasty and smoky flavor, quite sweetish, with malt, smoked sausages, caramel, a bit of chocolate and a hot chili finish. Quite full-bodied. Could’ve been better without the chili, but still very nice.
