jrallen34 (3488) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2011
bottle...medium muddy brown, only a touch of light tan head... Tons of smoke, lots of pork saltiness to it, oak on the finish, a bit of vanilla... The smoke dies on this, tons of chocolate, vanilla and oak, really smooth to drink

deyholla (7622) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle thanks to Scott! First beer of 2011! Poured a cloudy, earthy orangish brown with a near white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was quite smoke with a bit of honey, sweet grains and biscuits. Flavor starts with honey, sweet grains and a bit of peat, but became more smokey with quite a strong smokey finish.

Marsiblursi (3045) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2010
(Bottle) Pours dark hazy brown with orange to red highlight. Small head. The aroma holds smoked meat, that’s it. Super fat nose with a fat backbone of sweet malt. Maybe some butter oak way in the background. The flavour is medium to heavily sweet and light bitter. Super smoky, lots of sweet caramelized malt and light oak. The mouthfeel is fat and syrupy with light to no carbonation. Lingering smoked meat finish. Near full-bodied.

Bottle at home. Clear red brown coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and smoked aroma of caramel and smoke with notes of peat and dreid fruits. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel, dried fruits, smoke and sherry with notes of alcohol. Smoked and warming alcoholic finish.

douglas88 (6837) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2010
250 ml bottle thanks to Papsoe. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A wonderful aroma; huge smoke, sweet sherry, burnt caramel, huge malts. The flavor is great; massive sweet sherry and fruit, smoke, burnt caramel, an old burnt down wooden home. Very sweet and malty. Smoke is strong and very woody. A full creamy palate. Quite warm.

Svesse (6757) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2010
(Bottle, purchased at Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, during 2009) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Smoky, malty nose with dried apricots, orange peel, oak wood and rich smoke aromas. Malty, smoky taste with notes of sweet smoked malt, dried apricots, citrus, honey and hints of wood. Full body, smooth mouthfeel with a citric bitterness in a warming, vinous finish with alcohol notes. Interesting experiment and a very nice beer.

hopscotch (9956) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle (2008)… This beer rocks!… Murky, burnt caramel ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The earthy, malty, smoky aroma presents caramel, wood, campfire, leather and the threat of lactic acid. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and restrained carbonation. The flavor doesn’t deliver the expected lactic acid, but does offer gobs of caramel and fantastic essences of brown sugar, charcoal, English hops, alcohol warmth and light smoke. Surprisingly, I’m not picking up any wood here. Sweet, earthen finish. Kudos to Grovlam for bringing this world class beer with him across the pond!

darkguardian (726) - Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2010
8oz bottle courtesy of hopscotch. Pours a reddish brown with almost no head. Lightly carbonated. Huge smoke nose. Like sticking your nose in a bottle of Lagavulin but with some light acidity that detracts slightly. Flavor thankfully shows no imperfections. Huge smokiness meets a extremely refined and complex malt backbone reminiscent of an english barley wine. Nice fruity flavors with a finish hint of smoke. Totally my kind of beer. Stunning.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2010
big time! dak delivers on 2/7/2010. reddish brown pour with a scant off white head. fruity aroma with plenty of sweet malt, sour smoke, phenolics, industrial waste and neosporin. insanely smoky flavor backed up by malty sweetness and spice. there is a sourness and astringency before a relatively flat finish. it is harsh and lacks nuance. actually, it hurts my stomach a bit. i love me a rauch but this is terribly disoriented... 5/4/5/3/12/2.9
