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.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Pours dark brown with a warm orange hue and a tiny off-white head. Sweet dark fruit in the nose and a subtle touch of smoke. Medium body, again sweet dark fruist, some subtle roast and a spicy - almost cola-like - edge. Some smoke, but again subtle. Dry, malt bitter finish. Definitely a different smoke beer. 280511

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled. Brown colour, small beige foamy head. Aroma is wood, smoke, some mild toasted malts as well as some caramel. Flavour is caramel, smoke, some mild toffee as well as mild toasted notes. Quite balanced, but it feels like it’s lacking something to be really top notch.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle at Plan B, courtesy of André
Very dark color, almost black; medium-sized head, it seems to be overcarbonated. Mild aroma of roasted malt and smoke. Sweetish malt and caramel flavor (indeed without character), and a light smoke trace; the alcohol perception is stronger than the bitterness; besides the low bitterness, there is some liquorice in the final, and more alcohol. It seems to be a bit chaotic. Very Scandinavian (and not in the good way).
