Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2016
A hazed reddish copper brown ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity caramel malt with nice peated notes, coffee grind, musty character, chocolate, light vinous character, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with vinous notes, peated notes, grassy resinous hops, light bacon, resinous and piney hops, very nice and complex. Bièropholie imports.

Cunningham (7051) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2016
A really nice smoked beer for a man like me that not enjoy a to heavy smoked flavor. This had many depths that hided the weak smoked stuff.
Unclear amber-ish body with a fine off white head. Good lacing. Decent intensity in the aroma. Full body and a smooth carbonation. Tad sweet, but far beyond the limits of a decency. Mild smoked, wood, toffee, dried fruits, earth and some roasted notes. Very well masked alcohol.

Lukasmh (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle, BB 05-2015. Pours dark brown with nice lasting small nicotine-brown head. Aroma is good. Port wine notes, malty toast, burnt sugar and paper, raisins, sweet oak, barley wine, sherry, raisins. All wrapped in sweet smokey malts and toasty bread crust. Light bacon. Taste is sweet raisins, port, burnt sugar, sherry, malt, smoky sweet bacon, smoked whisky, burnt again. Finish is dry wooden smoky. It’s almost like an smoked version of Rochefort 8.

rosenbergh (10658) - 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.
