Kita (1198) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 11, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy amber orange color with small creamy off-white head. Aroma of smoked sausage, ham, leather with some earthy hints. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt supported with strong smoke character, following is umami with some fruity notes, warming mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Liquid smoked sausage :)

MarkoNm (772) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 8, 2014
Pours a hazy light brown color with a very nice cream colored head with decent retention. Aroma is part roasted malts and part like a sort of smoked cheese - I like it. The taste starts bittery, quite bittery really and is complemented by some roastiness and coffee feel. Quite nice, I must say.

Barwa: miedziana, lekko zmętniona. Piana kremowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanie gęsta. Dość szybko opadająca i pozostająca tylko na ściankach. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: wyraźnie wędzony i właściwie nic ponadto. Brak nut chmielowych, alkoholowych czy owocowych. Smak: początkowo słodowy i lekko słodki, jednak od razu następuje wytrawna kontra i atak dymu. Wędzoność utrzymuje się na końcu i dochodzi do niej nuta alkoholowa, która przyjemnie ogrzewa. Browar Emelisse jest podobno w Holandii bardziej poważany od popularnego u nas De Molena i chociaż produkuje znacznie mniej piw to zawsze są to propozycje solidne. Taką jest również Rauchbier, w którym nuty wędzone są wyraźnie zaznaczone, aczkolwiek nie męczące. Do tego nie są niczym zakłócone i piwo to faktycznie jest bliskie pierwotnym przedstawicielom tego stylu. Cena wydaje się również rozsądna, zatem z pewnością jest godne polecenia.

Bought this as part of my beer education. I can see how you could get hooked on this but it’s not for me. Outrageously smokey, not like a stout, REALLY SMOKEY ! Like smoked sausages, or peat, yeah, peat ! Smells like a good irish whiskey. I guessed it might taste strong so drank it out of the fridge to take the edge off. I’m drinking as I’m reviewing and it’s growing on me. Glag I bought two now. Very interesting indeed.

From notes, consumed on 6/2/13. Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a dark caramel brown with almost a finger and a half of off-white head. Aromas of big smoke, ash, light caramel, whiskey, wood, subtle yeast. Tasting notes of smoke, slight sweetness, nutty, subtle dark fruit. Light body with a dry finish.

Slightly hazy dark reddish-brown. Small bubbly beige head. Malty, red fruits, smoke is present, but not too strong. Light tropical fruit hops. Taste is light sweet at first, with a full bitterness coming right through. Medium bodied. Quite good for what it is, but I’m not a fan.
