RÝyk Uten Ild (Smoke Without Fire) is our smoky beer, here we have tried to make a beer as smoky as we can using our smoked malt from Weiermann. We have made a fairly dark and flavourful beer. Apart from the special malt the rest of the malt bill (86%) is smoked malt. You could also say that this is a smoked wheat beer, because we have used our wheat beer yeast here. The beer is not scary but actually very nice even for those that arenít smoke beer fanatics....try it and you will see. Contains malted barley, Amarillo hops, wheat beer yeast, and lots of smoked malt from Bamberg, Germany. 8% alc, 33 ibu, 48 ebc. Serving temp 8 - 12C or 46 - 53F.

Bottle (500 ml). Brown with a medium fully lasting beige head and some lacing. Aroma is moderately smokey with earthy notes, caramel and light spices. Taste is also moderately smokey with earthy/mineral notes, caramel, tobacco, light spices and a light herbal finish. Medium body. Well carbed (maybe even a tad too much). Simple yet interesting Smoked beer. A tad meaty.

On tap @ La Capsule, Lille - FR. Color: dark amber beer with small carbonation and small ivory brown head. Smell: smoked and roasted malty beer with something like smoked ham on nose. Taste: nice beer with ranch malt and roasted malt. Aftertaste: roasted malt. Not my favorite taste but the balance is fine and really drinkable.

A questa birra Ť stato dato veramente un carattere invidiabile, con uníaffumicatura cosž morbida e delicata, e comunque convincente, come difficilmente se ne trovano. Il tutto arricchito da note legermente acidule, di cioccolato e di frutta scura che la rendono una birra perfetta da sorseggiare in una baita sommersa dalla neve, davanti al camino scoppiettante. O in qualunque altro posto, síintende.

Lagerboy (1442) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
50 cl bottle. Clear dark amber hued brown, rocky tan creamy head slowly settles and lasts. Smokey roasted caramel aroma. Smokey singed malt taste, ashy and woody, some hints of chocolate and dark fruit. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Could use more sweetness to balance it out. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Nice sweet smoked beer. Light brown color. Sweet caramel and chocolate in the nose and a light campfire smokiness. The taste follows, very subtle and a little ashy. A hint of hop bitterness. Pretty easy to drink for a smoked beer.

Medium brown pour. Smoked meat nose. Full bodied with smokey malt, ash, smoked bacon, pear. Not the most intense smoked beer. Itís growing on me.

Bottle from Liberty Wine Merchants on The Drive in Vancouver. Iíll save readers the tedium of my descriptions. Others have described it better than I.

I love this as a winter beer! It has the characteristics of a good imperial porter or stout. My sole complaint is that I really donít detect much smoke. Iíve had smoked porters that were obviously smoky, but not this baby. If I wasnít looking for it I think Iíd miss it, which means I may be imagining it. Heaven forbid!

Still a great dark winter beer!
