COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Røyk 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 aren’t 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.

This bottle was two years old. There was a moderate smokiness to the aroma but it wasn’t too strong. The flavour has the smokey bacon type flavour with warming alcohol and a rich maltiness. I think due to the age of the beer some of the smoke had decreased and the flavour was starting to appear a little dull and stale.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 Couleur marron-ruby très foncé, presque noir, avec une mousse moyenne marron pale qui rétréci dans quelques minutes et laisse un peu de lacing. Carbonation moyenne avec les bulles douces. Il y a une arôme très complexe et un peu different chaque fois que je l’ai senti. Il est comme du gras fumé, comme du poisson blanc fumé ou même du bacon fumé. Des fois c’est completement different, peut être c’est ça le malt fumé, mais il me fait penser en un vieux fumerie du poisson. Quand il reste encore de la mousse il y a peut-être une arôme des fruits sourdiné par le fumer. Le goût est très terreux. Il est du malt fumé avec un peu de chocolat ou café, mais chaque gorgée est unique. La finale est légèrement amer, et le après-goût est du fumer leger et du malt.

500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours black with a big tan head. Aroma of smoke, fat, coffee and roasted malt. Good carbonation. Great with barbecue food.

THVB (25) - NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2013
Bottle at home (march 24, 2013). Dark ruby with fluffy offwhite head, lots of bubbles. Aroma is slighly meaty smoke and a nice fruitiness. Some caramel and chocolates notes, pine and dark red fresh fruits. Taste is bitter with metallic notes. Light smoked malts. A sharp and strange, fruity-like, bitterness coming through and dominates the beer. Quite unbalanced for me.
