Slightly darker amber color, large head, decent lacing and retention. Rich smokey aroma with notes of bacon, light oak, light vanilla, light caramel. I could smell this shit all day, it’s fucking glorious. Medium bodied, silky mouthfeel, dangerously drinkable. I’ve had dozens of smoked beers, this is my absolute favorite. Nothing matches the balance and flavor components here. A great doppelbock with a flawless smoke presence with some oak aging characteristics. Why yes please I’ll have another. Inject this shit into my veins, this is a world beater. kerenmk (4751) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at our place, thanks DSG. Clearish amber. Deep smoky wooden aroma and something slightly fruity and sweet too. Smoke, a little sweet and fruity in the mouth. Bitter smoky finish. Balanced and amazing. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Deep amber with a cream head. Nose is beef, BBQ, liquid smoke, light wood, and sweet. Great on the palate, smooth smokiness, malts, wood, BBQ, beef, fantastic. DSG (14764) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Slightly hazy deep amber. Great smoked sausages aroma with some wood. Malty flavor, rather sweet, with caramel, a bit of nuts, lots of smoked meat, and a drier finish, smoky and woody. Medium-bodied, oily and pretty rounded mouthfeel. Very good. dinkle50 (1477) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Huge smoke notes in the aroma. Thin head with some lace. Taste is like a hot dog or smoked ham. Easy drinking with a medium mouth. Hands down one of the better smoked beers I’ve had in the style.

Bottle shared - cheers Steven! Pours a clear reddish brown with thin white head. Big nose of smoke, burnt wood, brown sugar. Taste follows through, less bacon-y than the beech smoked beer. Some sweetness on the finish which is very nice. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Pours a red/copper with not much head to speak of. Instantly, the smokey nose hits you. Smells like a campfire mixed with a smoker at a BBQ restaurant. Nice malty character with the smoke character just right. Rich and robust brew. I bet this would be awesome with some ribs.

Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a head that dissipates to nothing. Aroma is great, reminds me of Bavarian smoked cheese, without the cheese (contradiction I know) and wood. Taste is smoked sausage, wood, yeast and some sweetness to counterbalance the whole thing. A beer with a great aroma and very good taste. daje (4436) - NORWAY - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle at Amundsen, march 26th 2013. Clear amber body, with a small disappearing light brown head. Aroma of campfire, bacon, caramel and fruity hops. Taste is smoky with burned wood, bread, rye and a solid dose of caramel. Very pleasing balance. Aftertaste of smoke and dark fruits. A good one! jkwalking05 (4735) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle at Edelweiss Restaurant in CO Springs. Brown in color with a small beige head. Aroma is of smoke, salt, malt, caramel, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is of smoke, light peppers, brown sugar, cured meat, and a hefty malt backbone.
