33 cl bottle. BBE 31.05.2018.
Pours dark mahogany color with a small head. Very smoky-leathery aroma, caramel, lots of malts and subtle alcohol. Very malty flavor, thick and slick palate, some bitterness and wooden dryness, smoky tones and subtle caramel sweetness, slight alcohol burn at the end. Very nice smoky Doppelbock.

330 ml. bottle. BBF 31.05.18. Lightly hazy deep amber, creamy small off-white head. Nose is super intense thick oily smoke, smoked tea caramel, pine syrup, honey goop, wood smoked, smoked tea, intense oil & syrup, this more than thick oil. Taste is just pure Lapsang & Tarry Souchong tea, pure concentrated oil, super oily caramel, esoteric oil, crazily thick honey, white grape jelly, caramel, biscuit & cookie oil, smoked oily bark, oil sweetness. Thick crazily oily Lapsang & Tarry Souchong tea caramel body. Lots of reviews seem to be comparing this one with Schlenkerla Märzen but for me this is totally different, Schlenkerla is sweet malts, oily smoke, caramel etc. this one is pure intensified insanely oily smoked Chinese oil, there is caramel sweetness but it carries almost no malt character, all pure oil with a dash of sugar. There is so much to this, this is almost hard to drink, you have to fight with this beer, decadent & extreme to the limit this is an admirable treat.

At the Franken fest 2016 in Rome-Italy, on tap. Pours a completely cloudy dark copper color, infinite ivory head. Nose: provola cheese, smoked salmon, more salmon, dry fish. Mouth: superb soft carbonation, smoked fish, floral sweet finish. Meant for solid food. Top beer!

I am normally not a fan of smoked beers. But this is the first I really liked. Dark amber color with a light beige head. Smoked bacon in the nose :-) Off course lots of smoke in the flavor, but not that dominant. A lot of other flavors comes through also. Strangly enough the first I think of is smoked ham :-) Well masked alcohol.
[On tap at GBBH 2010 - a friend and brewer at Grebbestad Brewery recomended this one]

Mortlach (1890) - Rome, ITALY - APR 5, 2014
17/03/2014 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Ambrata carica, intensa, limpida, riflessi miele di castagno, schiuma bianca sporca media e persistente. Al naso sentori di caramello, dolciastra, etilica, potente affumicato, bacon, fumo, sontuosa, infinita, da sniffare per ore! In bocca è davvero "tanta roba", attacco maltato, gran corpo, quindi una nota affumicata potente, di quelle che lasciano il segno. Una birra sontuosa, quasi arrogante nella sua potenza, evocativa come poche altre. Perfetta per accompagnare un bello stinco di maiale con patate.
