harrisoni (12655) - 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.

TBone (11905) - 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.

Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2009
Hazy amber-brown. Big smoke nose with lots of chewy malts. Rich smoke - more campfire char than most rauchbiers. Rich, long, chewy malt and smoke, with light caramel. The smoke lingers on your tongue for hours. Complex layers unveil themselves amidst an intimidating smoke character. Damn!

thewolf (10781) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2009
Cask @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours hazy orange amber with a nice, creamy, white head. Aroma has smoke, lots of caramel, sweet rye, light sugar and a hint of flowery hops. Light, medium carbonation, nice creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is smokey, slightly meaty, lots of sweet malts and a really good, flowery hoppy dry finish. Nice.

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2009
Deep amber with a lasting tan head. Bacon and campfire smoke aroma with bready malt and a hint of alcohol. Dry and malty, well balanced flavour with great smoke flavours, wood and campfire.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 25, 2010
Draught. Clear amber brown colour. Lovely smokey peat heavy aroma. Good mouthfeel. Very good flavour of smoke, peat, bacon, caramel and some sweetness. Great smoked brew!

Koelschtrinker (9996) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Süßlich hopfiger Antrunk mit deutlichem Rauchcharackter, der aber noch nicht dem süßen Hopfen gleichsteht und erst mit der Zeit immer weiter hervorkommt. Dabei spielt der Hopfen sowie die mitgebrachte Bitterkeit eine große Rolle, süßlich, perfekt abgestimmt. Zum Ende sehr viel rauchiger, trotz des sehr starken Aromas wirkt das Bier nie übertrieben, da eine deutliche Süße für Ausgleich sorgt. Im späten Nachgeschmack röstig. /14/12/14//14

Tap at Olbaren, Copenhagen, thanks to Johan. I had too many glasses of this, and it was after a long, long way of drinking - but it was just damn good. It’s a big, sweet and smokey beer. Lots of caramel, some smokey ham, straight smoke. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Nice stuff. Mild warming finish, big and sweet, lots of smokey ham, light honey. Yeah, just a damn solid smoked beer on every level.
