3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottled. copperish golden syrup colour with a fine white head and no haze at all. sweet aroma of molasses, raisin toast. firm-bodied, almost to the point of stickiness. some soft mint, die weisse chocolate, thorough dryness with some bitterness verging on the metallic. i had no idea that this was meant to be a smoked beer and i didn’t notice any real smoked character so it goes to show that i normally just percieve whatever flavours i’m told to

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber coloured, bigger off-white head; sweet malt (with a touch of roasted malt) in the aroma and a tinge of hops, some "smoked" illusions from very far away; moderate sweet flavour, medium bodied; sweet-malty finish with a mild, but detectable smoked touch. A gentle, well balanced smoked beer..........

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amberish colour. Bit sweet smoky and malty aroma. Flavour is caramellic, good smokiness, malty and little bit fruity. A good tasting smoky brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a beautiful, clear amber with an off-white head leaving a discreet lacework. Soft aroma of caramel. Medium body with a solid, lightly roasted malt base and then a fairly hoppy finish. The smokiness is only a discreet whiff. More like a Landbier really. 251206

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (I assume?) from Cafe Abseitz in Bamberg. Rich and full-bodied with some malt and fruit flavours, but not very smokey though. Almost too subtle so as to be annoying, like the trace of cordial left over in a glass of water. Unimpressive finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Dark golden with smallish head. Biscuity malts, dry, somewhat aged flavor. In Bamberg this didn’t impress.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a short, not very persistent, slightly off-white foamy head. Light-sweet toast-malty, slightly fruity aroma with a touch of caramel and faint smoky notes. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light body, smooth carbonation. Aromatic toast-malty taste with a light fruity and even lighter smoke presence in the background; moderately dry malty, light bitter finish with faint notes of hops. Decent Landbier with a subtle smokiness that could be more intense for my kind of taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap, served by Bjørn Hansen, "the crazy Dane from Gentofte" (more about him: see "Hansen EF-Domstols Øl"), at Gladmatfestivalen, Stavanger, as "Hartmann Felsentrunk Landbier". The Hansen 0.5 liter glass (quite good looking) was included in the rather steep price of the beer! The original Hartmann Felsentrunk Landbier swingtop bottle was exhibited on the counter, and when I asked for it, he claimed that this was the beer he actually had on tap. (He also had the paler EF-Domstols Øl). The colour was right, amber with a moderate head, but I did not get the faintest hint of smoke! The beer looked, smelled and tasted like a standard Danish "Classic". Moderate hops and some caramel malts in both aroma and flavour. OKish, but in no way remarkable.
