UPDATED: MAR 23, 2021 Non una semplice bock, oltre che l'affumicatura che ovviamente è protagonista, si sente inaspettatamente una nota salmastra abbastanza forte. MaltoseLees58 (97) - Szczecin, POLAND - MAR 7, 2021

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2021 Pours a deep reddish amber, fairly clear, with a thin white head, good lacing. Immediate aroma of wood smoke, hickory. Taste has a sweet malt base with a salty, savory, smoke flavor, kind of like a smoked meat. Palate has a continuation of that same smoked flavor that lingers on the nose for quite a while. Intense.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2021 30-01-2021; bottle; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their January 2021 discovery box).
The looks of the beer ar e nice. It is a nice looking dark beer; it has a nice dark chestnut colour. It is pretty clear. On top there is a nice layer of beige foam. The foam is nice and creamy, stays on the beer for quite some time. It looks quite nice. Looks very apealing.
The aroma of the beer is great. It is rich and voluptuous. The malts have caramel and toffee and an incredibly robust yet smooth smokiness. There is peat, wood fire smoke, a touch of oak wood. It is very nice. It is not over the top smoked, it is just the rich amount. There are also some nice aromas of plum, raisin, some tobacco in the back. Hops are leafy and a bit earthy. Nice and robust, a good addition to the malts. There is some creamy yeast in there too. It is very nice.
The taste of the beer is also very nice. The malts are pretty sweet, but the smoke also gives nice savory and some bitter notes. The hops give bitterness too. The result is a very well balanced beer.
The palate of the beer is also very nice. It is a full bodied, silky smooth beer with a medium carbonation. Robust as the aromas are, it has a very smooth texture. The finish has nice smoke, some roast, nice caramel and toffee and also some very nice hop bitterness. This all fades away slowly. All in all, it is a very nice beer. Great blend of Doppelbock and Rauchbier. fistrin (466) - Lleida, POLAND - JAN 28, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2021 Ampolla hopt. Bona combinació de Doppelbock amb la rauchbier. Segurament el fumat es menja algun matís, però la fa deliciosament bebible. 8 abv que quasi ni es noten
