Bottle at Fin & Loz’s tasting with Jan, Charlotte, Craig, Stella & kids consumed 22.10.11 Jan brought this along, cheers Jan. Pours black with no head to speak of. This is smokey, really smokey in the mouth, you imagine fumes coming out of your ears and nostrils. Some smoked fish, wood smoke, really lovely. A8 A3 T7 P4 Ov15 3.7

Good smokiness on this one. Smoke dominates the baltic porter. Slight oak but not much.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 17, 2009
On tap at the Great Taste of the Midwest (8/9/08): Mostly opaque dark mahogany black with a thin, wispy-lacing dark tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and chocolate with nice smoky character. Body starts rich, smooth and bittersweet with great smoky character throughout and just the right amount of sweetness. A very nice smoked Baltic porter.

Ughsmash (7122) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2009 On tap at FoBAB 5. Poured very deep brown with a dusting and a ring of beige head. Sweet, smoky peat dominated on the aroma with a little toasted oak representin’.. some dark malts (primarily chocolate) were behind, but the smoke prevailed. The flavor had more of the chocolate (and a bit of coffee) than the nose, with more complimentary smoked peat presence.. not much more than a little sourness showed from the oak.. warm with a lightly sour smoky finish. Creamy middle on the palate and medium-bodied.. enjoyed the warm smoky maltage that lasted through the finish. Nice one! 7 3 8 4 15

RERATE:
On tap at FoBAB as "Cedar Smoke". Poured medium-darker brown with a dusting of tan head. The aroma picked up plenty of smoke upfront giving an old cigar feel.. semi-sweet and darker chocolates on a nicely-roasted base.. well-presented. The flavor had roasty, mostly darker chocolates and vanilla at the core with spicy cedar accents.. finished dry and smoky/ashy. Medium-bodied and drier on the palate with lots of smoke.. great, satisfying flow to it.

Courtesy of Blazer06. It pours amber with hues of copper and brass to go along with an off white head. The aroma is light bacon with a sense of roasty malts and trying to move into a plastic sense. The taste is pretty full and rich with sweet malts, crystal malts, some roast and tasty bacony camp fire goodness. It stays smoky bacon to mild smoky burnt notes into the finish to go along with some ripe sweet cherries.

Sampled this one @ CCB. This one is the perfect smoke beer with the right balance. Dark brown in color, light tan head. Smoked malts blend perfectly with the oak that at times might appear to be in hindsight. Not over the top, and a tad extra smoke would have been even better. Lot going on there, dark chocolate, roasted malts, oak flavors come mesh together adding to the smoked malts and occasional bacon-like goodness.

deyholla (6580) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle thanks to Ben! Pours black with a grayish white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma is quite smokey with a bit of bacon and ham as well as a strong roasted malt note. Flavor is full of smoke with plenty of roasted malt and a hint of coffee coming in the finish. Surprisingly smooth.

marcus (6420) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours black with a tiny beige head and a smoky aroma. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor that sticks to the palate, and a dry slightly bitter finish. Great flavor for a lager and the smoke is not overwhelming.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 23, 2011
Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of smoke, some chocolate, some spicy hints. Tastes of chocolate, smoke, pepper, spicy, some nice roasty elements as the beer warms, and a dry, oaky finish.
