12 oz bottle coffee and smoke on the nose, minimal head that dissolves into a persistent film, minimal lacing. black with minimal carbonation, i don’t get a lot of smoke in the taste but being a fan of Islay malted scotch when something advertises itself as ’smoked’ i expect it to be a bit more pronounced. I get more of a malt and coffee taste, not overly hopped which allows the malt, light smoke and coffee to come through. Smooth mouth-feel. Overall, while i’d prefer the smoke to be more pronounced this is an enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 Super-dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is smokey. It doesn’t quite taste like a smoked porter, but reminds me a lot of Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Urbock. The porter is back in there, though, I can tell. A good smoked beer, but not outstanding.

Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma is smoke, tobacco, and caramel. Flavor is smoke, tobacco, caramel, and toffee. A bit more on the dry side. The body is a touch watery. Very enjoyable.

sonnycheeba (4296) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma is subtle but well dome with layers of smoke, chocolate, roasted malts, pork, and faint dark fruit notes. Flavor is dry and malty with a touch of caramel sweetness and soft bitterness; smoke undertones present throughout and come thru at the end for a dry, woody finish. Medium body.

Bottled 355ml. -at O’Hara Zagreb. Nearly black coloured, small off-white head that went away fast, light roasty nose. Roasted malt, caramel, smoke and sugar with rather sweet finish. Far far away from smoked Bamberg beers.
