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.

bierkoning (12575) - 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.

Bottle with Craig, Stella, Fin, Loz and Traci, at the "What’s This Label Supposed To Be Anyway?" tasting. Thanks Craig for this one.

Warm brown with a yellowy glint, like the eyes of a mean dog. Bit of biege head. Burning plastic tubing aroma along with burning circuit board and harshly artifical chemical ooze. Flavor is less repellent than the aroma. A softness, a warmth, alcohol very soft; but then the phenolic wierdness comes back in the finish, and I shudder like someone contemplating Mortality, Death and Politics. I like smoked beers generally, and it’s a fun thing to see Mikkeller playing with the smoke. This is a brave beer. But a bad beer.

Bottle @ Chris_o’s Pre-Beer Exposed Tasting, September 2008.
Pours deep brown with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is powerfully smoky, vinious, vanilla and sugary sweet. Nice, creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is heavy smoky, lightly burning and only soft sweetness. Not m cup ’o tea.

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2008
250 ml bottle, shared with Ole_R, thx! ABV was 11.5%. "Imperial Rauchbier / Rauchwine" brewed with honey, and stored 3 months in a new oak barrel. Deep copper coloured beer, low beige head. Intense aroma of smoke and oak. The flavour is very smoky and oaky as expected, with notes of charcoal, but is also surprisingly fruity and sweet with notes of raisins and fortified wine.
