On draft at 1st Borefts Bier Festival, Bodegraven. Light coloured, fair head. Smoky nose, some caramel, oak. Very full-flavoured, smoke all the way, evolving and finishing into a very dry finish. Good stuff.

Tap (PINT Bockbierfestival 09): Pale amber, big - slowly collapsing - lacy white foam: burnt wood and sweet caramel in the nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, full bodied; increasing dryness and hoppy bitterness in the lingering and warming finish. Very well balanced, tasty Bock...............

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2009
A Mes rate. Keg at GBBF.
A lightish brown colour with no head. Yum yum, this is proper bonfire stuff. Burnt wood and smoked malt all round. Just a hint of alcohol but otherwise it’s well hidden. Very clean, drinkable and tasty. An excellent rauch.

harrisoni (16533) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
On tap at GBBF 2009. Everyone had gone on about how good this was. Smokey aroma. Oddly a touch of TCP, but not in a bad way. Tasty smokey TCP in flavour too. Not too sweet for a bock, some biscuit in the malt even. Finish has as smokey sting. Yep, this is pretty good.

omhper (22603) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2009
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clearamber, no head. Smokey tarry bacon aroma. Mid-sweet with beautifully soft mouthfeel. Tarry salmiak - like Schlenkerla condensed. So seemless and soft - just beautiful!

Borresteijn (6039) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2009
On tap at In de Wildeman, as Affumicator Dreidoppelrauchbock, to finish off the evening. What an amazing beer this is. Clear dark amber colour, creamy off white head. Aroma of thick smokiness and sweet malts. Flavour is greasy smoked eel, bready caramel malts, some salty smokiness, firm bitter salty finish. Oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation, fullbodied. Yum!

oh6gdx (24236) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2009
Barrel@GBBF2009. Sign said Affumikator, but since it’s exported to Italy Affumicator is probably the proper spelling. Amber colour, small beige thick head. Aroma is bigtime smoked wood along with some bready malts and mild spicy notes as well. Flavour is the same along with mild sweetness from alcohol. Really pleasant and marvellous balance for being 9.6%.

TBone (15505) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2009
Draught@GBBF 2009. "Affumikator"? Deep amber color, steady beige creamy head. Strong aroma of smoke. Very sweet malty, some alcohol and then loads of smokey ham. Lingering sweet smokeyness in the aftertaste. A bit too sweet, but otherwise interesting smoked beer.
