2011-02-11, draught at the brauhaus, 8-5-8-4-17=42
Amber color, clean; with creamy head. Strong aroma of smoked sausage, malt. Good body, good caramel flavor, with some sweetness in the front and more roasted character in the end; the smoke is quite strong, more dry (due to the darker malts) than sour. Correct bitterness. Excellent.

2010-05-16, cask at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 8-5-7-4-15=39
Dark amber color. Aroma of smoked and almost burnt wood, a bit dusty but pleasant. Dark caramel flavor, strong bitterness, caramelized sugars, some smokey touch, not prominent. Very good beer, even if it has too much caramelized sugars and bitterness from the dark caramel.

2010-02-24, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 8-5-7-4-16=40
Dark amber color; creamy head. Very nice aroma of smoke, clean, and caramel; it’s actually possible to feel some crispy malt. It’s too much carbonated, so the body doesn’t seem to be very strong; it has a dark caramel flavor, quite dry, mostly in the end, when something similar to chocolate also appear; it has a mild smoke character, overwhelmed by the dark caramel, while some sweetness would boost it, and even ashes in the end; again, a pleasant trace of crispy malt appears. Very good.

2009-02-12, Bayerische Anstich at Akkurat, Stockholm, served too cold
Dark amber color; creamy head. Strong smokey aroma, smoked sausages. Good caramel flavor, enough sweetness to create a round body, with smoked malt and good bitterness level. Delicious.

MiP (15028) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle, 5.6%. Smoky aroma, citric smoke, not that good. Clear dark amber colour. The flavour is citric and smoky, hint of cream. The smoke is quite distinct and gets too sour for me.

yespr (39085) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden brown with a small tan head. Burned rubber smoked aroma. Mild acidic flavoured at first with a distinct smoke note on the back of the tongue. Again a bit bonfire to burned rubber like. Ends mild bitter and acidic.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2008
On draught at the brewpub. Red-brown, copperish colour with creamy head. Smokey nose, that’s disturbed by milkiness. Only light malty with good birchwood smokiness. Pretty short in flavour. Light body.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2008
The color is very beautiful red-brown and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of smoke and malt. The flavour has a perfect, not too strong sweetness, a very clean note of smoke, a slightly sour note of malt and it ends on a light, citrussy bitter note. It’s quite nice.

Quack-Duck (9079) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2008
5l-mini cask. Light amber-brown colour, slightly hazy, large and very creamy beige head. Aroma of smoke. Malty, slightly sweet and very hoppy in the finish. Pleasanlty smokey, especially in the aftertaste. Well-balanced beer with medium carbonation. Very good!
