Bottle shared by grOve. Strong ashtray aroma. Campfire, made of slightly wet wood, menthol cigarettes. Weird - as expected.

Shady dark reddish brown color, nice tan to teal head. Smoke, fruity, a bit acidic scent. I’d like it more concentrated on the smoke. Salty, acidic, ashtray, smoke taste. Smoke aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2008
(Bottled) Hazy dark ruby with a very small head. Strongly smoky aroma with peaty malt, and some whisky-like alcohol. Very intense smoked-peaty-tarry-malty, salty flavor with some caramel syrup. Alcohol is well hidden, but burns in the aftertaste. Doesn’t change much with yeast. Almost full-bodied, liqueur-like palate with low carbonation. An extreme beer with huge amounts of salty-peaty-tarry smokiness - yet surprisingly pleasant and drinkable. The bottle size of 0.25l is well planned ahead, though...

Hansen (6439) - Assentoft, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2008

Small beige head. Hazy deep red body. Intense peaty smoky charcoal aroma with citric hop notes. Dry-sweet alcoholic citric smoky taste. Mid-bodied. Aftertaste is much the same. Quite nice. (0.25l bottle shared by gr0ve.)

Mette (224) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2008
Mums det er lækkert men ikke kønt. Uklar rødbrun og næsten intet skum. lidt gær flyder rundt i glasset. Der er godt med røg og bål i den duft. Det dufter fuldstændig som i gamle dage til punkkoncert i det besatte hus i Mindegade. Der blev altid tændt bål og næste dag lugtede alt ens tøj sådan her.der er også noget tobak, karamel, sød maltet, mørke tørrede frugter, og godt med alkohol og træ. Smager endnu mere af røg og bål og let spegepølse. Lidt skarp alkohol som brænder, mørke frugter, honning og tobak. Let karboneret, let olieret og lang bitter røget eftersmag. luk øjnene og nyd denne øl.

Theis (13228) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle at home - shared with Mette, the night before I leave for GABF. Murkey red/brown (mahogony) - small fast disappearing offwhite head. What a lovely aroma of: smoke, nuts, chocolate, light roasted, wood, oak and tobacco. Taste: Wood, oak, smoke, berries, honey, bondfire, tobacco, cigar, light sweetness, roasted, nutty, raisins, light alcohollic burn. Lovely - thanks Mikkel.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle. Reddish brown color, hazy. Smoky aroma. Ash, cigars, mango. Malty sweet flavor initially, but the sweetness is challenged by a firm smokiness like from peat, tar, cigars. Banana and mango. Medium bodied. Very well balanced, if you like smoke. The alcohol is hardly noticed. A brave and excellent beer.
