Bottle: Brown/amber color, off-white head. Aroma is very smokey with smoked bacon, wood fire, barbecue. Flavor is similar to aroma with some sweetness, malt, smoke. Quite intensive smoked, nice brew.

Recenzja z 25.02.2014. Kolor ciemnobursztynowy, klarowne. Piana srednia, dosc szybko opada, zostawia cienka warstwe i troche oblepia szklo. W zapachu intensywny aromat spalonej izolacji i topionej cyny, lekkie drewno i "czysty" dym, gdzies z tylu przeswituje lager i lekki karmel. W smaku pelne, dosc slodkie, karmelowe, mocno lagerowe, aromaty torfowe obecne, ale mniej intensywne niz w zapachu. Goryczka niska, ale wyczuwalna, brak okreslonego aromatu. Wysycenie niskie.

brown colour, fastly diminishing head. Aroma is mainly smokey of course, a bit caramel, malty. Smoked in taste, a bit sour, sweet. Interesting, let’s say :-)

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein rötlichbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch angenehm rauchig, malzig, Karamell. Geschmack leicht rauchig, röstmalzig, würzig.

Mejs (115) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Pours clear golden with medium head. It is one of that beers that you just like or not - because of the specific aroma of the whiskey malt used in it. It smells like some burned plastic or ashtray, with a nice sweetness underneath it. The taste is sweet, with nice roastiness from the whiskey malts. Medium carbonation, medium to light body, i really enjoyed it.

WillemsUrenkel (1074) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2013
0,5 l bottle with pseudo scottish label art. Thanks to kappldav123 for it. Dark amber in the glass, very small head. Sweet smoke already from a distance for the nose. I don´t know, is the taste more a burned plastic or burned fresh wet wood? A little bit too much in my opinion. Sour citrus notes. Except the smoke a thin body. Not my cup of tea.

Bouteille 50cl de Hopfen & Malz partagée avec Tomaz. BB 06/05/2014. Cuivrée claire, col blanc cassé. Arôme est malté, caramel, pointe tourbe assez sympa et rappelant les Highlands, garde en rétro-nasal ce côté caramel-toffee très allemand. Palais est malté, fumé-tourbe très agréable sans être de trop. Se distance un peu du style habituel de Bamberg avec un léger caramel en fin de bouche. Le tout garde une certaine douceur venant de ce profil cara-toffee très allemand et que je ne parvient toujours pas à accrocher. Légère note sèche avec un léger houblonné citronné noble amérisant qui arrive en toute fin de bouche. Le profil tourbe fonctionne bien et la bière reste très correcte.

kapusil (887) - HUNGARY - DEC 4, 2013
0.5l bottle. Clear dark amber body, long lasting beige head. Aroma of caramel, smoke and ash. It’s not smoky in a way that most rauchbiers do. It’s not simiar to a smoked ham, more like burnt charcoal. The taste also has this ashy character with toast and caramel. The flavor impact is very strong. Unusual beer, but I like it.

Moravius (906) - Beijing, CHINA - SEP 18, 2013
Flasche. - Assamteefarben, dichter heller Schaum. – In der Nase Torf, eher unangenehm. Auch der Antrunk ist von einer starken Torfnote dominiert, die vom verwendeten Whisky-Rauchmalz stammt. Es folgt eine nicht so recht zum Torf passende Karamellsüße und ganz leicht säuerliche Fruchtigkeit (Apfelsaft). Recht dünner Körper. Kaum Hopfenbittere; dafür auch im Nachtrunk noch der penetrante Torf. Da wollte man wohl die Kosten für das schottische Whiskymalz durch Sparsamkeit beim Hopfen wieder reinholen ... Und aus der leeren Flasche riecht es tatsächlich wie Pisse. Nicht mein Fall.
