frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Caramel-tinted amber body which held a head for a while and retained carbonation thoroughly. Smokiness is rather subdued in the aroma behind the standard roasted maltiness. Im not sure how I feel about the flavor. Mild sweetness, tea bitters and only a mild smokiness which comes off as artificial. Effervescence and alcohol tingle the lips while the beer finishes dry. Bah. Maybe Im just spoiled on Schlenkerla. ~~~~~~~~~ Draught, GB Bolingbrook, IL.

BuckeyeBoy (2837) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 10, 2008
On tap at Gordon Biersch New Orleans location, Pours out a light amber topped with a off white head. A light aroma of smoke and some malt. Tast of more malt and not much smoke. Just SO SO.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2005
Lasting foamy off-white head tops the straw-amber shade. Mellow peat character rounds out the otherwise average cerealic and bready malty nose. Restricted hoppiness allow for banana yeastiness to pop up and bring along a slight tartness. Medium body, creamy texture, average balance and unpolished example outside the rauch aspect.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2005
On draught. Tasted during trip to California. The first one to try, very impressed. Little aroma of smoke. Dark golden clear colour with a nice head. Very good clean taste that ends up smokey. An easy drinking smoke beer with a great taste. Aftertaste of some whiskymalt.

PorterPounder (5592) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2005
On tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival. Light orange pour, white head. Slightly smoky aroma. Flavor has some smoked sausage saltiness to it. Very meaty, not for the unitiated as I heard a few around me saying "yechh, it tastes like sausage". Very chewy mouthfeel. Not bad at all.
