Rich imported malts are dominated by our Bamberg smoked malted barley as well as Wisconsin rye. Special Bavarian Weiss beer yeast was imported to ferment this beer in the bottle. This is a big, dark beer appropriate for lying down or drinking immediately.

Ungstrup (34307) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2006
A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet malty and slightly smoked. The flavor is sweet smoked with some bacon notes, on a malty background, and with a slightly dry and alcoholic end.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Hazy, amber golden with floating impurities and a small, off-white head. Rather neutral aroma with a whiff of smoke. Surprisingly light-bodied (would never have guessed this to be 12% ABV) with vague, smoky accents. Neither interesting nor very pleasant. 270106

Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a tan head. Malty and smoky aroma. Sweet malty flavor with some smoe notes. Some fruitiness too and a nice smoky finish.

Light haze on this amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Smooth soft palate, airy. Sweetish malt, come cream. Trace of oxidised caramel. Very mellow smoke, barely there. Light dried fruits and lactose. Finishes dry. A tasty and sweetish beer.

fiulijn (19096) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2006
Golden to light amber color, hazy. Light smokey aroma, sausages? Malty, full body, medium smokey taste; luckly the smokey character is supported by a sweet malty body. Good.

Tmoney99 (13455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured clear copper color with an average light brown frothy head that was mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate smoke malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet smoke flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This older bottle did not meet my expectations.

argo0 (13207) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2006
(12oz bottle, thanks Barry) Particle-filled cloudy amber body topped by a medium beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, bubblegum, some clove, caramel, light lemon. Taste is moderately sweet, bubblegum, peach/apricot, light banana, clove. Creamy medium body, had no clue about the ABV until I saw it here -- a little alcohol is noticeable, but for the most part it is very well hidden. Nice beer, but does not seem to be what the brewer intended. The Weiss yeast dominates -- I could not detect any smoke qualities. Also, the sweetness induced some palate fatigue by the end of the bottle.

BIG thanks to maniac for sharing this with me... a long retired beer from my all-time favorite brewery. So glad to have tried this. Shared at Immy’s Backyard Throwdown. Pours an amber color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is caramel and mild smoky notes. Taste is caramel, light smoke and faint hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Well balanced. Very nice beer.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with (thanks!). Poured a medium and cloudy amber color with a smaller sized white head. Some small floaters. Aromas of smoke, rye, yeast, and some bananas. Tastes of smoke, bananas and a little bready. I like the way the smoke was done in this beer – it wasn’t overpowering and complimented the other aromas and tastes.
