33cl bottle. Cloudy and light brown with a small to medium head. NOSE : strong aromas of smoked cheese, tart and smoked plums. SIP : oily texture with decent carbonation and medium body. The beer is sweet on the start. Delicate lactic acidity and a moderate bitterness on the end. Aftertaste is earth and mud like. Flavor wise this beer is malty and it reminds me of a caramel cake or a "pain perdu". Quite quickly the smoky notes take over. They are dominating the middle and the ending but they still leave some space for complex malt and yeast flavors. Smoked plums, sauerkraut and mushrooms and smoked meat. OVERALL : Since I enjoy a bit too much smoked beers this one is truly a delight. Extra points for that.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, very hazy deep red to brown colour, jammy aroma with strawberries,dark bread and just a whiff of smoke, flavour of compost. smoked fish, earthy notes and anchovies, quite sour. Very nice and quite unusual.

DSG (5782) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Hazy deep red-amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, smoked meat, smoked wood and nutty hints. Great sweet flavor, malty, caramelly and smoky with light fruity notes, a hint of chocolate and a finish with faint bitterness, slightly ashy. Medium-bodied. Very nice stuff.

Ruikt naar barbeque. Wow! Speciaal, maar weet niet of dat een goede geur is voor bier. Troebel bruin. Smaakt vrij gewoon, licht bitter, maar met BBQ nasmaak. Vreemd.

Excelen te cerveza Ahumada de color oscuro, con buena espuma. En nariz deja los inevitables ahumados, y en boca malta tostada, ahumados y una presencia de lúpulo muy equilibrada. Buen cuerpo, con carácter pero sin cansar. Redonda y balanceada, bien matizada. Muy buena.

A rauch that resembles a belgian beer, well-crafted, maybe a too soft aroma, but hints to dried fruit and malt made my day

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 3, 2013
Dunkelbraunes, leicht trübes Bier mit wenig Schaum. Vom Rauch ist kaum was auszumachen, seltsam. Im Geschmack dann aber doch etwas Rauch, etwas würziges Malz. Im letzten Teil dann gar etwas säuerlich und trocken ausklingend, leicht plörrig. Fazit: Die absolut misslungene Kopie eines Rauchbiers. Jedes Bamberger ist mit Abstand besser!

Light body, peated aroma. Thin taste, smokey aftertaste. Not the best smoked beer out there, but still a good choice.
