Copper. Foamy, lasting head. Aroma: Smoked-burnt grains. Flavor: Same, malty. Dry, burnt finish. I have had better Smoked beers. It was as though the brewers read the reviews and responded to the extreme... they burned thier beer instead of smoking it.

kseecs16 (1210) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Bottle. Aroma is very malty, caramelly and corn flakes. Orange hued light amber with a wispy cumulus head that clings in a bubbluy ring to the glass, no lasting lacing. Not a lot to this, a bit watery with a very grainy somewhat sweet malt. Lingers with a sweetness in the mouth, medium bodied.

Bottle. Reddish amber colour with white head. Malt and wood aroma. Malt and caramel flavour. The whiskey is too discrete.The smoke seems to have vanished.

danielst (248) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - AUG 20, 2009
An odd copper red colour with a minimal white head. The aroma is at first quite metallic, turning into a woody, cherryish malt aroma as it warms. The flavour is surprisingly thin - I couldn’t tell that there’s whisky malt in it, except for the warming, sweet malty component. No smokeyness, really. Unpleasing palate - a castrated bockbier.

saxo (14455) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2009
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are malt, caramel and wood. Some notes of whisky, but not as distinct as the old one.

Bottle. Clear dark golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma and taste of malts, bread and caramel. Where did the smoke go?

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours copper with off-white head. The aroma is a touch skunky at first, but it fades; then the aroma is sweet caramelized malt with a toasty smokiness to it. The nose isn’t a meaty smoke like, say, Schlenkerla, but more of a smoldering deal. The flavor is pretty metallic with a focus on toasted malt and caramel. The actual smoke is quite tame, and reminds me more of a smoldering grass fire than the robust smokiness I want. Drinkable, but very disappointing.
