Thanks joet for sharing this bottle. Pour is murky and cola-colored with off-white halo. I get robusta coffee and brettanomyces aromatics. The distinct smoky flavor is like the like the smokiness from guajillo peppers (no heat). Coffee and cherry cola nose then deep smoke mid-palate, with hoppy mildly-bitter finish and some alcohol warmth. May be contaminated, or another ambitious offering?

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle sample at my 5555th rating tasting at Sar HaMashkaot Ramat Gan. Thanks Tom L. Opens with a big gusher. Dark brown with a beige head. Strong aroma of iodine, peat and a spicy hint. Slightly sourish flavor with peat and a burnt bitter finish, slightly strange. Medium-bodied.

Idiosynkrasie (3741) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2014
330ml bottle [Slight but constant gusher]. Jet black colour with average to huge, frothy, diminishing, on a low level fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Intense smoky aroma, lots of peat, shoe polish, tar, tarmac, TCP. Taste has identical notes with basic, moderate, dark malty sweetness; sticky palate, the texture is not as oily as the taste suggests. I’m really into Smoked, but this is quite some hard stuff - reduced, boiled down, seemingly poisonous - but still yummy. If you’d agree to define Schlenkerla Eiche Doppelbock as the outermost pole on the Smoked scale, representing the archetype of the Weyermann malt, ham and wood ashes side, Série Noire could do well as the opposite pole’s paradigm incorporating the peat, tar and shoe polish notes in extenso.

Grzesiek79 (3181) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Bardzo super piwo. Torfowe bardzo, dymne wedzone pozostawia gleboki i trwaly wytrawno gozki posmak w ustach. Wedzonosc silna i dominujaca tak jak lubie, tak jak w Schlenkerli i innych dobrych piwach z Bamberga. Piane mozna zbierac garsciami, jest spora i dynamiczna podczas nalewania. Glebia czarnego koloru, gestosc i nieprzejrzystosc. Super piwo i super w swoim stylu. Ciekawa filmowa etykieta. Polecam zapalonym fanom piw z Bamberga

TET (1618) - FINLAND - MAR 26, 2014
A strongly foaming beer that pours into the table and floor when the focus wasn’t present after opening the bottle. After cleaning and waiting that the bottle was calmed down, the black beer with a big and beige head was in the glass. The nose is strongly smoky with turf, some sweetness and almost burned malts. Taste is smoked, strongly roasted, more balanced turf than in the aroma, also herbs. Medium bodied, medium carbonation after the adventure in the beginning. Strong smoke and turf.

Torrefacto (533) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 18, 2014
Color negro con reflejos caoba y espuma beige que, aunque persistente, levanta poco. Aromas ahumados muy suaves con frutos rojos y tonos florales. En boca se notan sabores tostados con un amargogr final seco. Lo peor, sin embargo, es su textura, muy aguada. No está mal, pero necesita mejorar.

Geiserich (3349) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 3, 2014
Bottle: Black color with a foamy off-white head. Roasty, smoky aroma with bacon and smoked meat notes. Flavor is full of malt, chocolate, roasted malt, smokiness, roasted malt bitterness, ham. Very good, smoky brew.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle 330ml (Saveur)
Gusher warning! Deep ruby color. good creamy brownish head. Aroma has smoke and wood. Medium bodied, foamy mouthfeel. Flavor has peaty smoke and toasted maltyness, some alcohol. Licorice in the finish. Active carbonation ruins a lot, otherwise nice beer.

Benzai (8140) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle [from trade with EricKok] @ home. Slight gusher. Black color, medium to full sized tan head that lasts for quite some time. Aroma is malts, lightly roasted malts, peat, lightly smoke. Taste malts, some roasted malts, again firmly peated, slightly smoke. Medium body, smooth yet suitable carbonation. Nicely balanced, a fine beer.
