Psytron (1748) - Turku, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2011
Lightly smoky smell. Medium brown and very cloudy. Unfiltered. Beige, creamy head. A bit muddy flavour. Also overripe/rotten fruit. Not too much smokyness to be noticed. Aftertaste is quite bitter. I guess if there was some beer made in Elbonia, this would be it. Looks like mud, tastes like mud. Sorry Emelisse, you blew this one.

Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. Off-white head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Smoked oak aromas. Medium bodied with sweet charred caramel front to back and into the lasting finish.

Countbeer (5918) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle: Small light yellowish head on top of a cloudy dark orange colored beer. Smell coal, smoke, reminds me of some campfire and bbq smell. Taste is a good mix of smoke, bbq, coal, meat, smoked malts, bitter, some herbs and some sticky malts and honey. Aftertaste of smoke, malts and some herbs. Low carbo, soft almost silky mouthfeel, medium to full body and an oily texture.

chibuck (3506) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2011
bottle... light murky copper, off white head, light colored for a rauch... smells rather nice, smokey pork, salt, wood chips, smells great... the taste is equal nice some great smoked pork but its a touch watery and a boring finish... a pretty solid rauch one of the better beers by this brewery

BAM_Lee (1) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 10, 2011 does not count
Picked up in a good bottle shop a few months back. Hazy amber, off-white head that fades fast, Smokey-bacony aroma with hints of toast and pears. Smoke defines flavor, with nice toasty malt and low/just balancing bittering. A touch of papery oxidation (likely from age & travel). A touch of acetaldehyde/green apple. Soft smoke on the palate. Medium body, slightly sweet, less so than some rauchs. Very nice, a worthwhile salute to the Franconian rauchbiers, Not as rich, or as pungent as some, but a fresh example of this would be very close and a nice sipper.

Ungstrup (33430) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2011
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing light tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel and a bit of smoke. The flavor is sweet with notes of matl, caramel and a bit of smoke, leading to a dry finish. The body is light. Thanks yespr for sharing.

erickok (5038) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2011
Looks fair, orange hazy body but head is a little strange, off white. Bacon. I can’t really get much beyond that bacon smell (which is a problem with the whole style for me). Maybe some light fruit (mandarin). Taste not as extreme. Bitter but smooth still,maybe the caramel sweetness doing its work. Fun drink and nice within the style. (On tap at Botermarkt Bierfestival Haarlem)

harrisoni (16728) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2011
At ACBF 2011. Smokeyaroma. Darkish orange colour with lasting beige head. Smoke is a little thin. Bit medicin. Base beer is a little sweet. Orange candy sugar. But smoke is thin and watery.

Rune (10703) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2011
330ml bottle, 7.6% abv, bought at Arkadia Alko in Helsinki about half a year ago. Pours a beige coloured head with fine retention. Rings of spotty lace to the glassware. Hazy, orange-brown body. Inviting aroma of peat and chocolate malts. Mild peaty taste profile supported by sweet malts followed by a very nice ending of dark, bitter fruits. Well balanced. A likable zeeuws bier, indeed (Tromsø, 23.07.2011).
