oh6gdx (25472) - 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%.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2010
On tap. RBESG Rome 2010. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Fat Bamberg smoke in the nose. Only a medium body yet with a distinct base of caramel and roasted malts and again a shitload of fat and greasy smoke accents. Not overly bitter finish. 040610

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!

2012-04-27, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 9.6% ABV, 7-5-8-4-15=39
First pour of the keg; hazy red-amber color, with a generous, nice creamy head. The aroma is not fully appealing, because not only it has the (appreciated) smoke, but also a strange rancid sourness. Strong body, sweet malt and caramel flavor, that would make a good Doppelbock; on top of that, there is the expected strong smoke flavor, sweetness, light malt sourness; it has a respectable bitterness level, and some alcohol warmth. Maybe just too sweet for this combination of smoke and rancidity.
Good, but excessive, unelegant.

2011-12-09, cask at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 10% ABV, 8-5-8-4-17=42
Hazy mahogany color, with huge compact head. The aroma is quite cheesy, almost English, a bit smokey. The body is structured, the mouthfeel is smooth; it has a fat flavor of malt and caramel, quite sweet; the smoke is present but not as strong as the Schlenkerla, or at least it’s hidden by other factors; the alcohol can be perceived; also traces of yeast; the bitterness is quite strong, with some dark caramel too in the final.
Very good, but side to side with the Schlenkerla Urbock, this one is rough; big but less elegant. It gets more appreciation with the second glass, and slow drinking.

2010-06-04, RBESG 2010, draught at Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fà, Rome, 9.8% ABV, 7-5-8-4-14=38
Hazy red-amber color; generous head. Very nice dry smoke aroma. Strong body, caramel flavor, with a good share of residual sugars; smoke, strong and sweet; I find that the bitterness is just too high and the alcohol perception too. Good beer, but somehow too much.
