3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark brown colour. Cold smoked aroma is distant and sparse. Chocolatey flavour is sweet and rich, with a gentle smokiness that interplays with the chocolate well, providing a complementary role. Full body. Overall, an interesting take, sweet and mellow.

Thanks to sk8viking for this beer.
I like it. It’s a very nicely done smoked beer. Beautiful smokey aroma along w/ a smokey, but not overpowering flavor, it’s very enjoyable.

This is a beer. It is nice. All beers from Mikkeller are nice. Mikkel is nice - Keller is nice. Their next beer should be "Nice Beer" from Mikkeller. ---- Taking a sip of the camp fire which at first hit my nostrils, made me think of smoked salmon, gin and loosing my orale virginity...to beer that is. Once again the key word is "smooth". Not a beer to provoque unless you’ve tried smoky beers, but more a beer to savour in front of the tv watching a World Cup soccer matc....ARGH!!! What am I doing in front of the puter? Come with me, ComOn! Let’s find a couch and a tv! (WARNING: Mikkeller beers are known for their hazardous effects to the human brain. Do not drink unless you’re prepared to get drunk, hooked or becoming a ratebeerian beer geek - if the latter is the case, go with the Beer Geek Breakfast)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled: Reddish brown coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Sweet and light smoky aroma. Has some mild fruity notes. Flavour is dominated by smoke, but is balanced by sweet and fruity notes. Has some chocolate notes and is quite roasty. Full bodied. Quite dry. Is nicely bitter in the end with a roasty smokyness. Smooth and easy to drink rauch, which is quite true to its German brothers.
