From cask. Pours cloudy orange with a small tan head. Aroma is smoked, meaty and light caramelish. Sweet malty, meaty, malty and distinct smoked. Bitter, dry and herbal. Smoked and dry malty into the finish. Ends dry and lingering smoked meaty.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2011
Gravity cask at GBBF, Day 4. Pours cloudy amber with a dense, foam head. Big smoke nose, beach wood, not dark and roasty, subtle ham and minerals. Medium sweet flavor, some honey-cured ham, smoked cedar, cheese, light caramel and toast. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Plenty smokey on the finish but not at all overbearing. The sweetness counters the smoke wonderfully. Bit more honey and caramel, rocks and minerals. Excellent.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Bottled in 1997. Dark, no carbonation. Tons of smoke aroma. Taste is fairly thin, but with smoke and malt in there. Obviously too old, but it got hidden away years ago and I wanted to give it a try. Not fair to rate it here (especially since I don’t care for smoked beers) but thought it would be interested to post the tasting here so it’s so old.

Brandman (2848) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2011
Dark mahogany body, tane head. Aroma of sugar and smoked ham. Flavour is very small. There is only the smoked ham. Some bitterness. Dull.

Poured amber. With thin head that left almost no lacing. Smelled smokey tasted like campfire good beer

Sweetish amber beer. Trace of caramel. Dominated by a reasonably mellow smoke. Also has a medicinal note. Mellow smoke but too much of it.

chicowv (477) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2010
22 oz bottle: Pours a dark golden copper with a nice white head. Aroma is not too distinct, malty, slightly smoked. Taste is a nice smooth brown ale with a nice smokey aftertaste. Smooth and easy to drink, would pair well with many foods.

Svesse (7924) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 30, 2010
(Bottle) Dark amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, smokey nose with notes of beechwood smoke, caramel, dried fruit, raisins, dried apricots, smoked ham and hints of orange peel. Malty, smokey taste with caramel, smoke, dried fruit, orange peel and a decent citrussy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, smooth and rounded mouthfeel. Mainly dry. Excellent balance. Smoke is more prominent in the aroma than in the taste, but there’s some smoked ham there as well. Very nice beer.

rosenbergh (10625) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 650 ml bottle. 7%. Am10. From Malmö, Sweden.
Hazy amber colour with tiny off-white head. Aroma is malt and smoked ham. Malt, smoked ham and not much hops. A bit boring Rauchbier.
