Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey, deep golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Very cautious smoky aroma, at most like "Mettwurst", minimally herbal and floral hoppy overtones. Taste is moderately sweet malty, cautiously smoky, "Mettwurst" intensity again; dry, still minimally smoky and additonally sligthly woody and papery finish. This is simply inconsequential for me. For those who really appreciate a Smoked, who are willing to withstand the blazing heat and caustic fumes of netherworld’s furnaces, this Mephisto exudes the aura of a dwarf in mutation, cawing "Take this, mortal!" I believe, either you like a Smoked or you don’t. There’s no need for an introductory course. Schlenkerla is the levelling rule.

rosenbergh (7399) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2014
500 ml bottle. BB 18/02/14. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Malt, mild vegetables and some... in the aroma. The flavour is malt, saltiness, mild vegetables and some dryness. Quite bland. Really weak smokiness. It’s no teuflisch gut nor rauchig zart... unfortunately.

WillemsUrenkel (653) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2013
0,5 l bottle. Golden and clear, medium CO2, small white head. Starts a little bit sour but even smoked and grainy. Full body. Very drinkable.

Grima (2124) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - APR 18, 2013
bbe date has passed for 2 months. Pours strong golden yellow with reddish tinge and soapy white head. Smells hoppy-fruity with no smokiness. Starts slight smokey, with some bitter malt notes and fruity hops. Finish is very smokey with some ashtray flavor. Disappointing!

kiwianer (3390) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 23, 2013
The head is medium, the body yellow and light. It smells a bit smoky, malty. The taste is less smoky, malt, and very watery. Could be more intensive. 8/7/7/8/10/7

Erasmus_ro (1482) - Alabama, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Thanks Hart. Pours a hale golden orange with a medium, off-white head. With a name and label like that you’d expect some strong smokiness. Unfortunately, the aroma is quite weak. There’s light smoke there as well as graininess, but it’s all quite faint. A touch of butter or ham. Taste begins semi-dry with grain and light fruitiness. Turns a bit sweeter as it goes on with the grain becoming stronger and some grass and herbs coming in on the finish. The smokiness is very light. Palate is quite light and there’s a lot of carbonation. A bit of a disappointment really if you’re expecting rauch.
