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.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours a dark chocolate brown, lightly viscous, with a frothy thick light tan somewhat sticky head. Soapy aroma, smoked fish, floral fruity hop notes, sweet smoked glazed ham, dank fire wood, delightful, rich brown sugar glaze, bit of alcohol to tie it all together, so pleasant. At first I wasnt impressed, but as it has warmed a bit it is coming into its own in a magnificent way, the floral hop note with the light bitterness is a bit odd at first, almost soapy, the attenuation of this really allows some delicate interplay of flavors, smoked fish and wet drift wood, crystal malt and brown sugar, hint of dark chocolate and duck towards the quick finish, leaves a lingering beechwood smoke character in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, watery feeling, larger bubbly carbonation.
