BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Brewed in the USA !!! Pours a dark brown color that almost looks black with a small off white head that dissipates in a few minutes. Aroma of smoke, cocoa beans and dark malts. Taste of mild chocolate, dark malts and campfire smoke. Mouthfeel is kinda thin in body with some lingering smoke in the finish.

Idiosynkrasie (5019) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2015
750ml bottle [Another regional gem delivered by David, thanks a lot!]. Almost black colour with dark ruby red glimmer and average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, almost fully lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Dry, woody, dark malty aroma, hints of smoke, notes of red and dark fruit, red berries, blue berries, plum. Taste is slightly smoky, dark malty, notes of chocolate and dark fruit, subtle sweetness, a minimally tart and dry woody touch; lasting chocolately finish, slightly sticky palate. Mild and balanced, slightly restrained intensity.

750 ml bottle courtesy of Beerman. The pour is dark brown with huge sudsy beige head that has excellent retention. The aroma is moderate in strength with smokehouse flavors that conjure up images of sausages and wurst. The taste, like the aroma, is a good dose of smoke and its nicely set in a not-too-sweet malt base that features dark chocolate. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and semi-sweet. Overall: One of the best smoked beers I’ve had in a long time. Thanks.

Bottle. Black. Smokey aroma. The taste adds more char and bacon grease. Light to medium body with some sweetness on the finish. Pretty good, very smokey.

On tap at Cure. Pours a deep dark brown without much head, slight brown head. Aroma is almost like bacon. Taste follows the aroma. Medium thick feel with medium carbonation. This is one of my favorites from East End. Went great with dinner.

From a cask. Smoke is prevalent in the aroma and flavor. Pretty smooth given the heavy smoke. It's alright.

drpimento (2496) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2013
A sample courtesy of Pablo, gracias amigo!! Poured at a good temperature, with a thick, tan, creamy head and lots of lace. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is smoke and malt, bit of fruit. Flavors like malt, and smoke are dominant, bittersweet right behind along with tang. I’m not a huge smoke beer fan so subdued smoke is more my speed. Friends like it much more than me. Finish is clean, true, and a little on the short side. Not bad for a smokey treat.
