Mortlach (1127) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 22, 2015
On tap @FrankenBierFest, la Limonaia di Villa Torlonia (Rome). Pours amber with a medium head. Flavour is smoked malt, bread, biscuit, grain, maize, hops. Flavour is delicate smoke, malt, low sweet leading to a bitter end, a bit watery, easy to drink and fresh, amazing! Light body, medium carbonation. Amazing brew!

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Vova. Clear amber. Nice aroma of smoked salami and kabanos and malt. Sweet malty flavor with caramel and smoked sausages. Medium-bodied. Nice.

Benzai (9771) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle [thanks to bierkoning] @ home. Clear amber-brown color, average to medium sized off-white head. Aroma is malty and moderately smoky. Taste malts, smoke, some hops, lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Decent body and carbonation. Quite nice, one of the better smoked beers Ivé had (and I must add smoked beers aren’t really my thing..).

worldbeertaste (1720) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2014
Golden copper with a medium white, lasting, head. Smells of smokey ham right away with caramel, malt and light fruit. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. It starts off with smokey meat with caramel and malt and finishes with a slightly burnt, grass bitter end. Defiantly enjoyed drinking it and easily would have more.

mjs (5112) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
(Keg at Vagabund, Berlin, 20140419) The beer poured copper coloured and clear. Its head was medium sized, white and it lasted long. Aroma had caramel, smoke, malts and smoked ham. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were grass, caramel, smoke, molasses, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had smoke, caramel and bitterness. A nice balanced smoked brew but a bit too sweet.

kappldav123 (5368) - GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle looks simle but good. Beer in the glass brownish, small head. Malty-smokey aroma. Starts malty and spicy, mild smokey notes, hints of caramel. Finish less smokey, a bit grasy. Not bad!

Moravius (753) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Flasche vom Landbierparadies-Laden, Nürnberg. - Schönes Rotbraun. Milder, karamelsüßer, nur leicht röstmalziger Antrunk. Die Rauchmalznote ist deutlich, aber nicht sehr kräftig. Im Abgang pfeffriger Hopfen, aber eher verhalten. Schwacher Nachtrunk. Etwas dünner Körper, sehr süffig. - Mildes, leicht trinkbares Dunkles, das durch die Rauchmalznote zwar an Interesse gewinnt, aber vorwiegend malzbetont und süß bleibt. Könnte eine Portion mehr Hopfen vertragen.
