fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2009
bottle, 2008 vintage, pours a beautiful amber with a tall frothy light tan head. Cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins mixed with a peat note, very pleasant nose. Light bodied biscuit and toasted malt flavors that have a mild sweet and sour character that ends with a smoke flavor that is more on the mild side. A very drinkable bock with interesting flavors and a solid finish.

Svesse (7764) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2009
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Wallingatan, Stockholm, 17 Feb 2009) Dark reddish brown colour with huge, beige head. Fruity, malty, slightly acidic nose with dried fruit, orange peel, dried apricots, spices and hints of smoke. Fruity, sourish taste with notes of dried fruit, orange peel, spices and sour notes of red-currant and tannin. Medium body, fairly dry. This was on the sour side, but sometimes smoke makes a beer feel sour. A bit suspicious form, but still drinkable and ok. Might give it a new chance. (Rating #2000)

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 (10214) - 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.
