kermis (11057) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2011
Draft at Angleterre, Helsinki. Pours amber with small white head. Aroma is malt and slight smoke. Flavor is malt, sugar, slight smoke. Too much carbonation and a very bitter finish (Rated 2011/04/21)

5 Slightly pulsy aroma, only a touch of smoke.
4 Deep red, brief head.
6 Pleasant rich malty taste, slight dark fruit sourness.
4 Rye only really comes through 10s after you swallow, and then the finish fills out beautifully, tons of rye, and decent smokiness..
13 So much a read-loaded beer. The aroma didn’t sell this at all, but the finish is lovely.

Draught@Rotterdam, Helsinki
Clear copper brown color, small beige head. Light sweetish, smokey aroma. Crisp carbonation. Light to medium bodied. Sweetish caramel malty backbone, Bamberg-style smokey malts and ham in the flavor. Quite short finish, some hops there. Ok clean rauchbier, can’t trace much rye here.

mjs (6475) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2011
(Draught at Hilpeä Hauki) The beer poured deep amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had tar, rye porridge and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts, tar, smoke, rye porridge, metallicness, hops and bitterness. Afrtertastr was malty, smoky, salty and bitter. I found the flavours and the scents too mild and smooth for this type of beer.

Dark red brown colored with little light brown head. Sweet and medium smoked aroma with some grainy tone. Medium bodied, smooth palate. Flavor is richer with same grains dominating, smoke here nicely as well. Decent and straightforward smoked.
