rosenbergh (7787) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2014
500 ml bottle. BBE 05/2015. Thanks to Timo A! Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. The aroma is bad... Sweat, washing liquid and liquorice. The flavour is liquorice, dry hops, malt and mild chili. Not that great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour, finger of head. Big smoky aroma, almost meaty. Smoke, peat, peppercorn in the taste. Medium body. Would love to have this with some BBQ or cured meat.

Habanero (2940) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy, deep amber with an average, lacing off-white head. Aroma of caramel, wood, smoke and citrus notes. Sweet flavor that endes up dry and decent bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A nice smoked.

hopdog (9453) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with a small sized head. Subtle smoke all the way around ... there, but in the background. Chocolate, roast, caramel, and some wood.

zenkis (638) - Ogre, LATVIA - DEC 29, 2013
bottle aged in store about year or two,
Indeed star, complex and very pleasant flavor. To me this one is not so much smoked as it is barley wine or kind of strong/old/scotch ale.
Aroma starts with intense medium smoked notes plus loads of dried, dark fruits or berries. With time after thick foam lays down aroma becomes more deeper even - dark-dried fruity sweetness, woody, smoked dried meat, leather, some citrus hops,caramel-candy sweet. Wow, heavy weight to my nose. Pours dark with beige, creamy top, but I miss precise color cause was breathless from flavour deepness. Thick lasing from the top of the glass. Taste is sweet, malty-caramel, reminds scotch ale but with loads of bitter from hopping as well as from darker malts, even some heavy roast tones in finish. Nice. Medium to full bodied, thick, stew-slick texture, average to soft carbonation, strong to medium roast-herbal bitter finish with long lasting bitter sweet aftertaste, dry to light dry finish.
Sweet, heavily bitter hopped brew with intense dark malts touch and very complementary hints of smoked malt. I’m impressed deeply by this brew and already have some nostalgia cause of sign "retired" so hope to grab for rest of few bottles in my favorite beer store. Sorry guys.

Koelschtrinker (11744) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 15, 2013
Deutlich rauchiger aber auch süßer Antrunk. Brotig, zu süß, die angenehme Malzigkeit wird dadurch gestört. Dabei ist der Alkohol niemals schmeckbar. Nicht ganz rund, unsüffig. 10/9/6/10/8/9
