COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This nostalgic porter evokes memories of chocolate and coffee around a campfire. The cherry wood smoked malt used in this beer gives it a heavy smokiness that blends smoothly into the chocolate malty body. With a silky finish this porter is ideal for sipping on a cold winters eve.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2012
Bottled. A red-brown beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, and soy sauce, leading to a dry roasted finish. The body is light - more like a Mild. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Pours an opaque orangey brown with a creamy beige head. Roast and subtle smoke - Bamberg style - in the nose - a hint of diacetyl? Medium body, sweet roast, licorice, ashes and again quite some smoke. Rather bitter finish, I believe its from both scorched malts and hops. Drinkable even for a non smoked beer love as me. 100912

poisoneddwarf (1707) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bomber. Pours root beer brown with a collapsing beige head. Aroma consists of campfire, smoked ham--a little too muted. Taste, thankfully, is much smokier than the aroma let on (give me maxium smoke, please). Along with the smoke, theres some dark fruit and raisin flavors. Highly carbonated and medium-bodied. A good brew, but not in the ranks of the best smoked beers Ive had.

ben4321 (3862) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 8/13/12, Release #6, 5.7% ABV

Aroma: The nose is heavy on the smoked malts, some meat, chocolate, and hints of peat
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small light brown head and some mid-plus lacework
Flavor: The taste is much the same, it is heavy smoked, rather malty, and has just a hint of hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, the feel is clean and slightly watery, with an average carbonation
Overall Impression: So this one has definitely been hiding in the back of the cellar for a while, but that was semi-intentional with this style. It seems to have aged just fine, though Id be surprised if it developed too much, as it still feels somewhat under-developed. Overall, the smoke is definitely the defining component of this one. This is some decent, but somewhat unexciting beer.

Thisis12ptfont (835) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Fresh hops, and (oddly enough) ham on the aroma. Deep, dark brown in color with a moderate sized tan foam. Flavor is very smokey and honey filled. Hops are definitely present among an odd smoked ham flavor. Decent carbonation and a medium body. Overall, its a decent brew but the ham flavor and aroma is very bothersome. Some booze on the finish. Id give this a C rating.
