COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ryk 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 arent 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.

Thanks to Blake for bringing the bottle! Poured very deep brown with a well-retained beige head. The aroma opened with smoke, with wheaty and grainy malts beneath.. soft smoke rode out the back of the nose. The flavor picked up chocolate and Munich-y malts the core.. more smoke and some vanilla as it extended outward.. spicy with warm malts on the finish. Medium-bodied and fairly dry on the palate.. the smoke worked well in there, but the rest of the beer was just aiight.

Quick-review; Dark, almost pitch black colour. Big on the peat, good mouthfeel, rich, sweet aftertaste with hints of dried fruit. Good, alittle over the top, needs storeage?

Thanks Richmond crew! opaque red-brown, thin large-bubbled white head. Nose is citrus, light smoked malt and a separate, sawdusty smoke. Flavor is a bit smokey, no tea or malt distraction, bit sugary. Nice, not the smoke or complexity of of schlenkerla, bit sugary, particularly in finish.

Richmond 13th. Brownish black, slight head. Aroma is pumpernickel and coffee. Flavor is a match. A bit towards sausage, but not bad. Well done, the smoke freaks should go nuts over this.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - JAN 15, 2011
500ml bottle served in a Tank 7 tulip. Poured a deep brown with two fingers of tan head. Smokey aroma with a little sausage, dark malt, also a fair amount of citrus hops. Medium bodied. Plenty of smoke in the flavor along with hop bitterness. Smoke lingers in the finish. The smoke flavor became a little like liquid smoke as it warmed, which distracted. One of these is plenty.

Tap, The Trappist. I always like a good smoked beer, and Haand made a nice one. This beer poured brown with a smallish tan head. The aroma is smoke, a touch of ham, toasty caramel malt and dark fruits. It definitely leans toward the Bamberg hamminess of Aecht Schlenkerla beers, but the ham is dialed back a bit and theres a bit more of a fruity presence. Taste is fairly dry with woody notes. The finish is smoky and fruity. Feel is relatively low carbonation, creamy. I think I prefer the punchiness of the Aecht Schlenkerla beers, but this beer was very refreshing and had a smokiness both delicate and strong.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
(Sample Date: 1/19/2011 Source:BrewEngineer) Apple like smoke over creosote and dark fruit notes with a faint sourness. Slightly cloudy dark amber brown with small fluffy tan head. Smoky flavor with lots of roasty character. Light bitter stringency. Light to medium body and mouth feel. Finish is dry with some nice warming. Tasty.
