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.

Big, smooth, rich and smokey. Really liked this it was brilliant. Would need to buy another to go over again but I just remember the smooth rich and great smokey aspects that made up this beer. Great with the rib eye steak cooked on the BBQ.

Bottle. A somewhat strange concoction - for my palate. Greaty smoky maltflavour but the yeast kills it for my part. Not saying its a horrible beer but for me its a beer that tries to be a little to much. Nice try however.

maekchu (2733) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Light smoke, sweet dark fruitiness, and slight oxidation. Clear dull brown color. Rounded dark fruit in initial, small smoky malt notes, light prunes. Thin-medium body. Okay. Smoke is very mild. Some pronounced fruit notes. This one was a bit past its sell-by date.

KyotoLefty (7550) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle. Fruity nose, caramel, light smoke. Seems a bit too old. Estery, roasty flavor, rather light smoke. Think this was sold too late. Ok.

sulawang (722) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
Visual: A rather simplistic label compared to their regular lineup. Pours cloudy beer bottle brown with a smallish very long lasting micro foamy head, a small layer of retention, a bit of lacing, tons of varied speed active streams. Nose: Charcoal smoke immediately jumps out, malt, a bit of brown sugar, molasses. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: crisp, silky smooth mouthfeel, creamy Mid-palate: (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar liquid malt, cola, molasses, woodiness, hints of anise, coffee Finish: minor smokiness, cacao nib bitterness, subtle soft bitter hops, malty sweet finish. Summary: Quite and engaging cacao sweet malty beer that grabs and holds your attention. Excellent balance and "lightness" that keeps you sipping.

tmrmwel (1284) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle, batch 460. Pours very dark mahogany, with a creamy mocha head. Aroma is burned malts with tobacco, leather and campfire, as well as coffee, dark fruits and kandi. Full creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with burned malts with coffee and cocoa, as well as liquorice, tobacco, oak, heather and dark fruits. Lingering sweet finish with wooden barrels and vanilla.

czar (5689) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2014
pours murky light brown with a very nice creamy beige head showing good retention and lacing. smoked dark spicy, fruity and nutty malts - never bacony, layered in nice smoky caramelized almonds, very woodsy if not woody - with its astringency, cherry piths and other red fruits, hint of sweetness - brown sugar, molasses and caramel, grassy and very peppery. light carbonation, light to medium body - oily, boozy and assertive astringent-woody-grassy-peppery finish. enjoyed a lot this one!

Thanks Tony! Reddish brown, mostly clear. Aroma is smoky bacon. Flavour is quite deceiving, the smoke is strong, but its certainly not overpowering, and the beer is actually lighter in body than i had expected. Its really quite nice. Smoke and caramel, wood and fruit. Neat.

500 ml bottle. Pours a very cloudy dark reddish brown with a nice beige head. Aroma is smoked, woody, salty, malty, pine tree. Flavor is loads of malt, roasted caramel, somewhat woody, pine tree. Finish is tons of smoke, old smoke, very intense smoke. Smoke! Lingering...smoke...and wood. But, yeah. Smoke. Its a smoked ale, yknow? Medium to full body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Loved every sip.
