jfb (5565) - Freising, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2010
(draught) pours a very murky amber colour with a dense off-white head. surprisingly subtle aroma of honey-smoked ham and grass, perhaps even some light notes of peat. flavour is smoked ham and barnyard, light caramel, sweet spices and a hint of alcohol, overall a little too much on the sweet side though. medium to heavy-bodied, quite viscous, with smooth carbonation.

kschep (1707) - DENMARK - JUN 30, 2010
a rather dense smoke on the nose (not as ’bacon’ed’ as skibsøl or burnout) the taste is somewhat mellowed, which lets the nose work ’through’ the taste. in the end some bitter hops
