Bottle @ Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig. The pour’s deep red with a tiny white head. The nose is chocolate and mild jammy cherry. Deep roasted malt sweetness, some notes of floral honey. The taste is light cherry sauce, some cocoa and mocha. Medium body, soft. Quite drinkable.

downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle from REWE, Buttenheim. Copper coloured with a slight, white head. Light, wood smoke aroma balanced by some caramel sweetness. Flavour had plenty more smoke, reminiscent of an open fire with some more fruity sweetness and a roast, dry finish. Enjoyable.

Theydon_Bois (7920) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
Tap at the Brau Haus - 27/04/12. Clear bungle-brown colour with a big finger + of dirty white head that soon thinned. Smoked malts/frazzle crisps light is the predominant smell allied to a little wood. Caramel flavour a hint of raisens subdued smoky malts - quite subtle compared to some Rausch. Medium body decent carbonation.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Clear, dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Ashy, burnt malty, smoky, caramel, toasty aroma. Somewhat spicy, chewy, campfire ashy, toasty malty flavor. Pretty tasty but nothing like a Spezial or Schlenkerla.

Grzesiek79 (3113) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 26, 2012
Dobre piwo wędzone, ale dalekie mu do specjalności z Bamberga. Minusem jedynym jest bardzo mała warstwa piany i do tego szybko znika. W smaku jest, bo wędzonkę się wyczuwa, może nie intensywnie ale zawsze. Podobnie z zapachem

kiwianer (3317) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Schaumkrone mittelmäßig, geruch leicht Rauchig. Geschmacklich ist es speziell, es schmeckt mittelmäßig-schwach Rauchig verbunden mit einer netten malzsüße und dunkelmalzaromen, sehr gut abgewogene Aromen, leckeres Süffiges Bierchen als Frühstück gut geeignet, gefällt mir! Fazit: Schönen Gruß nach Oberfranken, so und jetz bitte weiterbrauen! Test vom 12.5.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,12,13,14,12 - 12,25

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 3, 2012
bottled. clear amber with a minimal head; aroma of salted caramel with hints of vanilla; firm texture; pleasant butterscotch with a touch of peanut brittle; the smoke is only really evide if you look for it but it’s still an enjoyable beer

flying_pig (898) - SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle (500ml):
Malty smelling with a bit of spice blended through the middle and rounded off nicely with a touch of cinnamon and hints of smoke.
Light copper colour with good clarity and a thick, bubbly white head on top.
Caramel and a nice malt base to this one along good bit of spice and a nice cinnamon kick that the nose suggested. There is also a background smokiness to the beer.
Smooth, light to medium, mild bitter finish.

A fairly average tasting beer that was drinkable and had a good mix of malts and smoke.
