(Tap @ Palaveri) Deep brown. Smoky aroma, as it should be. Even tar. Flavor and feel are rather sharp and crisp, smokiness mostly in aroma. Finishes dry, maybe a touch too bitter.

Andy_ (632) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 500 ml bottle @ Brygga Streetbar
Dark cola colored beer with little white head. The faint aroma has tar and smoked malts. The flavour has tar with smoked and sweet malts. Finish has a mild bite of bitterness and leaves the tar flavor on the after taste. Mouthfeel is thinner than medium with pretty high carbonation. Easily drinkable, not as strongly smoked as the German versions. Also doesn’t have such a strong smoked ham flavor.

From a bottle. The taste is clearly smoky with some hints of sweetness. The last of the smoky taste linger in the mouth for quite a while.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle at Helsinki Bryggeri. Head is mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate, cookie), with notes of smoke (meat, campfire), licorice, and iodine/peat. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation. Rich smoke character with some Islay Scotch leanings, quite nice mixed with the roasty-chocolate malt. Nicely balanced as well. Quite enjoyed this one.

Semi black body, white head aroma has smoke tar and caramel. Flavour is bit sweet smoked. Nice but bit onesided.

3fourths (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle best by Dec 2013 at Bryggeri Helsinki.
So the aroma is quite meaty and jerky-like, and I get a lot of jerky brine out of it as it opens. There’s some chalky black malt and a lot of dark caramel malt and bread crustiness here, but the cured meat aromas are all over the place. Morcilla even. Medium body, medium-low sweetness, low bitterness, medium acid. Some cola-ish flavors and a lot of bread crumbs on the approach, with some more of this jerky brine / soy sauce meat savoriness coming through across the middle and in the finish. I just can’t get into it.

Armadill0 (255) - FINLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle. Almost black brown and almost foamless. Aroma is faint. Its sweet and has some dark syrup in it. Taste is surprisingly light and a bit sweet. Reminds me of dark rye bread.

laiti (5445) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2013
50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 06.03.2009
Aroma is smoky with tar, some grainy notes and hints of licorice. Flavour has smoke, grainy notes, some salty licorice and hints of tar. Not as hardcore as Schlenkerlas but not as light as some german smoky lagers.
