3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice amber with a medium offwhite head that leaves good lacing. Nose is indeed smoky, but also nutty. Taste is lightly sweet with a slightly tart edge and carries some good smokey flavors. Finish is a little vegetal, woody. Body is medium, carbonation a touch too high (you can see the foam growing in the bottle as you drink...). Anyway, a fair introduction to smoked beers, not as intense as Schlenkerla but still really tasty.

Hazed amber pour. Really nice smell. For w/e reason these types of beers smell rustic and nostalgic to me. It smells like a smoked malt house mixed with a bakery. The flavor is smoky but more so an amber ale. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500 ml). Murky orangey/brown with a medium fully lasting off-white/beige head and good lacing. Aroma is mostly of smoked wood along hints of berries and light peppery notes. Taste is also dominated by smoked wood along with berries, peppery notes and mineral earthy/presence. Medium body. Medium/good carbonation. Smoky finish. Not very complex and quite straightforward. The beer is dominated by smoke, but it’s a nice/not overwhelming kind of smoke and the beer is stil drinkable for the style. Good.

Bottle at home. Pours a cloudy reddish brown colour with a medium, light beige head. Smokey aroma with smoked meat, wood, leather and forest floor. The flavour is more malty and has a sweet touch. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fantastic smokey and well-balanced ale.
