2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
- Alcoholpercentage van 6,2%
- Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken
- Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken
- Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark orange colour with a lot of sediments when poured.
Fruity notes, malt and indeed a smoky touch lingering on to the finish.
Interesting beer, I would have liked more hoppy presence.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy gold with a small beige head. Aromas of citrus, multigrain bread and light smoke. Taste is smokey straight up, with grapefruit, sweet malt backbone, faint pine. Spicy, smokey and slightly metallic in the finish. Nice thick and sticky mouthfeel. Interesting concept beer and clearly high quality but not convinced it works completely.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
slightly sour smell, not really smoke. taste is clearly smoked. it remains on first taste, but then a sweetness, very slightly herbal and finally the bitterness makes itself known. not a light drink, has a sticky, volume rolling over the tongue. excellent, but smoke is more a background feature.

Soft aroma and a smooth taste. Taste is strong in smoke and rye, but it goes down smoothly. This is a good one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(33 cl bottle courtesy of Douberd; BBD: June 2015) Pours a hazy amber with three finger white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma has notes of sodapop along with a hint of smoke. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a dry and smoky finish. Flavour is smoky with some bittersweetness. Not my cup of tea. Girlfriend says: "I wouldn’t drink a whole glass of it but ... it’s interesting!"
