from Erzbierschof - quite clear very dark beer with a poor head retention; fairly smokey aroma with notes of fire, tobacco and cold ashes; a good malt body; very tasty and pretty juicy; some earthy bitterness and a long smokey bitterness with notes of black cherries and licorice - quite original and very pleasant

Bottle: Poured a clear dark brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of smoked malt with some caramel malt notes. Taste is good mix between some smoked malt with light smoked fish notes and some caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Solid offering with great balanced taste of smoked malt and bacon and smoked fish.

Lots of head, took a while to settle. Not very carbonated though. Smells smoky/burnt, as expected. Syrupy texture, tastes of bitter chocolate, burnt marshmallows, whisky, beer. Rapidly recedes to a sweet, soft aftertaste. Perhaps a little too much alcohol on the nose, but this is a common affliction of beers of a certain strength

Lamentablemente no me gusto y no me la pude ni siquiera acabar. Huele como a carne asada y el sabor es bastante fuerte. No me la volvería a pedir. No es mala cerveza, pero no va conmigo.

The head is unstable, the body dark-brown. It smells smoky, malty. The taste is smoky, malty, sweet a bit-roasty, good balanced. I like this one! 12/11/11/11/-/11
