Quack-Duck (8862) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2015
bottle from Bierpost. Deep brown colour, tall and creamy beige head. Shy but pleasant smoky nose. Medium-bodied, some chocolatey flavours, some coffee, some smoked malts. Well balanced and smooth.

sound67 (570) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2015
Maker: Heidenpeters Brauerei, Berlin-Kreuzberg, Germany *** Beer: Smoked Porter (bottled, 330ml) *** Style: Rauchbier *** ALC.VOL.: 5.5% *** Colour: Dark brown with red reflexes, big beige head. *** Nose: Roasted malt with a rather faint hint of sour smoke, a bit of citrus. *** Texture: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation. *** Taste: Sour and citrusy over roasted malts at first, only a hint of smoke. Dry. Lemon continues to feature towards the middle, and here the smoke starts to kick in. The finish then is smokier than before, with roasted malt and lemon again dominating the aftertaste. *** Impressions: Nowhere near as strong a smoked beer as, e.g., the infamous Schlenkerla Rauchbier; not a complex brew wither, though the overt lemony notes make it rather appealing. More of a "slightly smoked stout" then (as it is too dry and citrusy for a porter!).

Das Bier hat eine klare dunkel orangebraune Farbe und ein fingerbreite beige Schaumkrone. Geruch rauchig holzig, deutliche Röstmalznoten. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, bitter, Kaffee, im späteren Verlauf mehr süß malzig, holzige Aromen, gering rauchig.

Idiosynkrasie (5152) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2015
330ml bottle. A ruby red glimmer survives in arduous strain the dark brown turbidity, an average to huge, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige to tan head rests upon. Smoky, woody aroma, notes of clammy ashes, dark, minimally chocolately notes behind that, fruity interludes play the claviature in blue and dark berry sections. Taste encompasses typical dark and smoked malt notes, still more woody than "fleshy" smoke, subtle chocolate sweetness, fruity overtones, raspberry and other red and dark berries, a herbal touch as well. Very nice balanced, the smoky notes don’t predominate, remain rather supportable, leave still enough space for the "genuine" Porter; maybe a bit light in some moments. Good!

kappldav123 (5542) - GERMANY - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts intense malty, roasty, more and more smokey. Dry-hoppy background. Light sweetness. Finish well balanced, still intense roasty-malty, less smokey. Quite drinkable. Not bad!

aleigator (510) - GERMANY - MAY 11, 2015
Pours a black color in which red hints come through, with a bubbly beige head. Smells of toasted malts among earth and a sugar supported sour note. Reveals coffee above the sweetness with chalk and matured, herbal hops. A faint smoky whiff adds to the overall sweeter taste, without providing much character on its own, as it is very subdued. Has a well fitting higher carbonation, while the beer remains a smooth mouthfeel among its light body. Tastes of toffeeish malts, with a lactic, sour bite added, wrapped up by bitter, roasted coffee. Coffee inherits a good amount of hops, blending well into the coffee bitterness, without distracting from the malty character of the beer. The brew then turns immediately sweeter, with a salty, honeyed note to it, while it finishes with a gentle ham roastiness, reminding of the coffee and earth feom the beginning. Unconventinal, but very convincing in its taste. Much more roasted and less sweet than the usual Smoked, with a huge amount of earth, on which smoked ham settles beautifully, by adding a sweet peak.
