3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, BF 2013-07
Some surprisingly low ratings here. Maybe I got an exceptionally good bottle?
Smells lightly smoked. At first it reminds of smoked ham, but it changes and becomes more peaty? after it gets warmer and aires a bit.
Tastes lightly smoked with a good mouthfeel. Long light smokey aftertaste.
I really enjoyed it. When I had beers that smelled like this they usually also had the taste of smoked ham, this one didnt. Also the mouthfeel was surprisingly smooth and soft for such a beer and ABV. And it didn’t have any hints or notes that disturbed me.
