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.

Bottle, thanks Blake! Dark black pour, light red on the edges, off white head. Aroma has notes of campfire, smoke, ash, some wood, and a touch of chocolate. Taste is nice and balanced between sweet chocolate and smoke, roast, and coffee. Nice beer.

Pours to a deep mahogany body with a thin off-white head. The aroma is super smoky and has lots of juniper. Wheaty. The flavor is smoked malts, some juniper and spruce, wheaty. The palate is medium bodied.

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.

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.

MrChopin (3575) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 27, 2011
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.

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?
