Poured in a big Riedel Bordeaux glass. The color of this beer is deep amber with a hazy brown body and a warm orange glow. The head is off white to beige and not very long lasting, it leaves a nice foamy rim on the edge of the glass. The aroma is very interesting, it has indeed a smooth smoky touch but is very well integrated without being overpowering. In the nose, the caramely accents and the hints of herb bonbons ara working very well with the smell of banana on the BBQ poured over with some maple sirup. The main thing is the outstanding ballance and the elegance of the aromas. Smoke aroma’s are sometimes to overpowering but in this beer it is so smooth and interesting. Now the taste. The beer is very drinkable and has a medium boddied mouthfeel with a refreshing spritsyness. There are nice accents of milkbread crust, caramel, caramel malts, nuts, dry figg without the sweetness, minerals and the residu of burned sugar in a cake baking tin. The well integrated smokyness accentuates the complex minerality in this most outstanding brew. A true complex beer with a smooth sweet nuttyness a low dosis of bitters and an interesting metally mineralety. Com on Rouch On. I just love it.

Perfect balance between Rauch, gebrannt, süss und bitter. Wir brauchen noch mehr...

Tasted at Vinens Verden.. They done it again... This time it is an Rauchbier. Nose is like the purest Islay single malt. The taste lacks a bit, but it is still the best I’ve tried.

Courtesy of boboski!!! Damn, I think half of my ratings are courtesy of boboski. Color is a very deep brown, bordering on black. Aroma is a forceful and beguiling peated symphony of greatness. Should I be wearing a kilt and eating haggis, pondering how the essence of the peat bog has ended up in my glass? The flavor is a delight to behold. An ititial sweetness is overcome promptly by the essence of the smoke, which in turns yields to a maltiness. Awesome a delight to have had such a rarity.

At the tasting this beer was present at, I do believe I was the person most intrigued and smitten with it. A bubbly beige head forms, creamy, with average retention, never fully receding. The body is oily, lightly hazy, a demonstration of tightly knit blood red and dark chestnut coloration combinations. The aroma is very heavy in all aspects, though certainly the majority of the recognition goes to multi-faceted and adorable one-of-a-kind smoke of a most delectable and mouthwatering variety. The smokiness resembles, in some tangent, peated malt with hints of dessert wine, much like a dram of Macallan 10 year old cask strength Scotch. Burning French oak notes follow and add to the melee. This is truly a very uniwue and heart-grabbing smokiness. Plentiful, fully toasted grains, light fruit and very little noticeable alcohol seal the deal, this one’s a keeper; what a shame it’s no longer produced. The California Common stylings of fermentation add depth rarely encountered in this genre. Additions of moderately high sugary-sweet caramels lead the flavor forward. Smoke is reduced to a moderate(neither too little nor excessive) amount, situated nicely within a lightly acidic tastebud crinkling malt profile. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, easygoing and thankfully devoid of any watery texture. High carbonation, lightly sticky until the end. The finish is of medium smoke, with salts and meat notes, sweetness lingering. So enjoyable.

Huge thanks again to Mullman for the Danish beers at my party. Pours a cloudy muddled brown with some woody greyish brown hints and a thin dissipating head. Aroma is old burnt wood, campfire smoldering, slightly meaty, and heads towards being medicinal. Cigarett smokey flavor with some cigar, tarry, smoked fish, burnt caramel malts and a light sweetness in the end. Really nice smoke beer.

From 50 cL bottle thanks to Papsoe/Ungstrup. Pours deep brown and rossa with an almost chalkwhite head. Aroma of smoke, I’m placed somewhere on Bornholm near a smoked fish house or in South of Jutland with a smoke sausage (spegeåølse). It clearly has a meat flavour to it. Aroma hops blend lightly into the smoke. Flavour has a fantastic good body providing a meat flavour and a lovely malt flavour which is blending nicely into the beers dominating smoke flavour and providing a fantastic uplifting experience. Most of all, the smoke makes this a real joy. Fantastic brew concluding another great tasting arranged by Papsoe, cheers!

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.
