MiP (14562) - 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.

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 (3846) - 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 (10190) - 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 (8921) - 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!

wastl (130) - GERMANY - DEC 12, 2007
Bottle. Dark amber colour, small to medium off-white head. Average carbonation. Aroma of smoked ham. Very sweet flavour. Strong notes of smoked ham, intensifying towards the finish. Not my kind of beer.

diabel (1645) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2007
Bottled, major thanks to Lach (mullet) for bringing these to me from Bavaria.
Off-white, lightly brown head (rocky, frothy but fastly diminishing). Clear, amber body. Aroma of smoke, wood, ashes, charcoal, smoked ham, citrus, malts (lightly), some soapiness, ... Heavily bitter, lightly sweet flavour with some saltiness (which is not annoying). Very nice complexity of sweet malts combined with smoke. Extremely well balanced. Those Germans do know how to brew decent beer!
