beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 27, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy brown color with a thin light brown head. Solid aroma of smoked malt, caramel and berries. Superb flavor of smoked malt, berries, caramel and mild bitterness in the end. There’s a rich malty character that is very pleasant. The body is medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

On tap @Ma che siete venuti a fà (Rome). Pours amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, brown sugar, smoked meat, speck, cheese. Flavour is medium to heavy malty, caramel notes, heavy smoked notes, light but persistent bitter end. High body, low carbonation. A great beer!

At a tasting, many thanks, small creamy bubbly head, clear deep red to brown color, aroma of smoked meat caramel and a candy hint, flavor of candy smoked cheese caramel, and a subdued hint of alcohol, mellow smokey and candy aftertaste, light fruity sourness. Good and satisfying, really mellow.

Bottle sample at a tasting at troubles’s place. Thanks Tom C. Clear reddish amber. Big smoked sausage aroma. Sweet flavor, malty, caramelly, with nuts, toast, and nice sausage-like smokiness. Rounded mouthfeel. Really good.

Aroma: light savoury bacon, caramel, dark malts, spices. Appearance: clear, dark brown, massive, frothy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: initial bitters, smoked flavours, caramel sweets coming up, yet hoppy bitters keep on dominating, light citrus, dry, bitter finish. Overall: nice Smoked Bock, great aroma, nice palate.

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle. Thanks to KL. Light smokey nose, dark roast, and gentle chocolate. Thin dark brown color, very slick. Thin mix of smoke and mild dark fruitiness. Bittering works its way in throughout mid and final. Thin body. Pleasant, lightly smoked, with decent bittering.

Bottle from Landbierparadis. Purple-brown color with a thick head. Clear. Nose of chocolate, wood, caramel, cherries. Smoke is on the light side. flavors of chocolate, treacle, light smoke. Slightly roasty finish. A bit leafy and a bit too light in body. Decent but I was expecting more.

Smoked awesomeness. Has nice roasted malt, but the smoke takes the prices of course. Strong, yet smooth. Great beer.

Moravius (1124) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 16, 2013
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin, mit MHD 18.6.2013, also schon 4 Monate „abgelaufen“. - Schönes Dunkelrotbraun. In der Nase Karamel, leichtes Raucharoma wie von Geselchtem oder Schinken. Im Antrunk breit-malzig und karamelsüß aber nicht dick. Das vergleichsweise leichte Raucharoma harmoniert perfekt mit der Süße. Den beträchtlichen Alkoholgehalt schmeckt man nicht; das Bier wirkt sehr süffig. Im Abgang leichte, etwas holzige Hopfenbittere und mehr salziger Rauch. - Erstaunlich leichter Rauchbier-Doppelbock, einfacher zu trinken als die wuchtig-aromatischen Erzeugnisse der Marke Schlenkerla, aber nicht schlecht.

Lilja (2785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2013
En fin rököl. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell. Syrlig och söt med toner av rök. Frisk och klar.
