SHIG (3603) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Bottle: Poured a dark brown with soft reddish tint, head is thin beige. Aroma is smokey, peat, and malt. Taste is smokey, coffee, dark chocolate. Finish lingers on the taste bud as dry and malt. I really enjoy beers like this.

Maria (10173) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2008
Trade with Fonefan. 2008 bottle. It is hazy, nice red-brown with a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of peat, smoke, malt and caramel. The flavour has sweetness and notes of smoke, light peat, malt, caramel and nuts. I love a smoked beer, if the sweetness is low. This is good, but a tiny bit too sweet.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2008
Bottle 2008. Not nice nose a little bit like smelly socks. NIce brown red color. Very smokey bockbeer, still fresh with little hint of acid. Aftertaste is like cold espresso and like an Islaywhisky.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2008
(Bottled) Very hazy, dark reddish amber with a medium, tanned head. Mild aroma of slightly burned malt and peaty smoke. Moderately smoky-malty, sourish flavor with lightly licoricey, salty-seaweedy flavor. Medium body with medium, soft and foamy carbonation. Borefts Bock was good, but this is not... the smoked malt just doesn’t fit into picture: it steals most of the existing complexity, replacing it with dull, peaty-smoky altiness.

MiP (13671) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle, 7.7% at LCRBM08. Good roasted aroma, slightly creamy. Very nice creamy, malty and nutty, as if nuts were added. Pleasant carbonation.

skortila (4558) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2008
Bottle @ LCRBM 2008. Aroma has some milk and maltiness. Brown coloured with an off-white head. Taste has malts and is a bit lactic. Not my thing.

bierkoning (10386) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle @ LCRBM 2008. Brown color. Malt, peat, flowery hops and butter in the aroma. Malty sweetish, slightly peaty flavor with roast and a hint of butter. Fairly well balanced beer.
