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.

(Bottle, batch #273, at Maltainen Riekko, Helsinki) When serving me the waitress said that this would be smokier than Schlekerla Mrzen. Well, that wasnt true. There was smoke and tar both in the aroma and the taste but it wasnt really dominating. I could also sense liquorice, roastedness and fennel seeds. The last one came to me as a surprise but the flavour did fit in. No fennel seed were added according to the very minimalistic label. Aftertaste contained some metallicness which dropped the overall points a bit but otherwise good smoked beer.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 [9/24/10] Bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Dark brown. Aroma of smoked sausage, a bit of malt and caramel. Smoky flavor with some wood, caramel, malt and some meat. Medium to full-bodied and slightly over-carbonated.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - JAN 15, 2011
500ml bottle served in a Tank 7 tulip. Poured a deep brown with two fingers of tan head. Smokey aroma with a little sausage, dark malt, also a fair amount of citrus hops. Medium bodied. Plenty of smoke in the flavor along with hop bitterness. Smoke lingers in the finish. The smoke flavor became a little like liquid smoke as it warmed, which distracted. One of these is plenty.

Shared bottle at Cardinal. Clear deep amber with a light brown film. Intense smokey aroma like you get when cleaning out your fireplace. Behind the dominant smokey impression in the mouth, theres alcohol, sweetness and acidity along with roasted notes. Dry palate. Medium body. Gentle carbonation.

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a deep brown with a huge tan head. The head quickly dissipates to a one finger width tan head. Aroma is odd. Bacon, peat, raisins. The bacon really comes through in an unpleasant way. Not as prominant in the taste. Flavour is smokey with a hint of dark dried fruits. I get some apple in there too. Odd mix in this one but very balanced. Leaves an oily, peated taste in my mouth. Whiskey drinkers will like this one

On tap at Local Option into a tulip. The name means smoke without fire, pretty accurate...Black pour with a light tan head, ok retention and lacing...The aroma is lots of smoke but in a subdued way, as if its something that was "smoked", lacking a salty pork character which I miss, lots of peat and earth. I like it, but not awesome...The taste is heavily smoked, like drinking a bottle of liquid smoke, or lacking a piece of charred wood. No balance of pork or sweetness, just the smoke. Like the thinking here, just not there yet.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2011
500 ml bottle. Sparkling dark brown. Crystal clear tall light beige head that clings to the glass. Fizzy aroma with nuts and smoked sausages. Sweetish nutty malts with a raisiny edge. Plums and vinegar. Dark chocolate. High carbonation level. Nice smoked beer, especially when it settles down.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 20, 2011
Bottled 500ml (Konttori, bottled 120510, batch #273)
Dark copper brown color, steady brown-beige head. Oaky, a bit vegetably, smokey nose. Medium-bodied, suprisingly light palate for this ABV. Smokey, woody, some tannines, vegetables. Quite Bambergian, traditional strong rauchbier with typical Haandbryggeriet house flavor included.
