adnielsen (10368) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2011
Bottle @ Granny’s house in Exira, Iowa. Deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Huge smoky nose as soon as you open the bottle. Burnt dark malts in nose also. Dark, burnt, roasted, smoky, malty flavor. Fairly easy drinking while still having the smoked, charred tasted. Slight oak flavor also. Good.

shrubber85 (9948) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Cocoa malt and light smoke aroma. Dark brown with small head. Sweet smoky chocolate malt flavor with a lightly bitter herbal hops finish. Not bad but expected more flavor from a Baltic porter.

Tasted during RBWG15 Grand Tasting. Black color. Thin off-white head, decent bits of lace. Good savory smokey taste, dark chocolate. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, moderate bitter. Light warmth. Awesome bigger chewy body, lighter carbonation, light slick. Very good smoked lager. Good chewiness to it.

deyholla (9642) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, 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.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 750mL courtesy of beeranddogs. Pour is clear, deep, cola brown looking deep cola brown in the glass with highlights. Really no head- some cola fizziness erupts and settles down wickedly fast. No retention. No lace. Aroma is not even smoky: instead there is something medicinal, black cherry soda, cherry juice box, a touch of briney Kalamata olives. As it warms a hint of smokiness comes through but is layered atop some alcohol notes. Taste is bit like burnt plastic, cola sweetness coming in for the rescue but only succeeding in making the beer taste like flat vanilla cherry Coke. Palate is fizzy, fairly thin. 12/12/2010 7/3/6/3/13=3.2

Tap at CK. Deep pour with a thinner tan head. Deep clear black ruby. Rich, smoked meat nose with heavy bacon. Aecht Schlenkerla style. Taste is thinner, lemon tart, nicely roasty. Thinner mouthfeel like a schwarzbier. Just a little bit too much tobacco and dirt and less oily bacon fat. Still quite nice.

arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2009
On tap at Stub and Herbs. Poured black with thin brown/tan head, smelled instantly of smoke and nothing else. Tasted much more balanced, with a nice malt start and thick smoky finish. Though not a fan of smoked beer, this one was the best!

BVery (9178) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2009
UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 TAP at the Blue Nile (Minneapolis, MN) on 2.14.09. Pours a dark brown, not as smoky as some (like Left Hand Smoke Jumper). Smells/tastes like campfire with some beef jerky. Excellent.
