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 (1557) - 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. allmyvinyl (11073) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2013
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.

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 (4745) - 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. Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - MAY 28, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2015 Intenso e limpido color granato con un fragile strato di schiuma biancastra. Aroma affumicato con sentori di legno, cenere, fumo e zucchero bruciacchiato; gusto mediamente dolce e caramellato, perfettamente in sintonia con note di legno affumicato, cenere e malto abbrustolito. Morbidissima al palato, corpo medio lieve e rotondo, effervescenza debole, struttura meno "ruvida" della Marzen... in sintesi ottima per il sottoscritto!

Poured a reddish color with a big foamy head. Aroma of wood, smoke and BBQ. Flavor was very nice; not over the top smoky. Wood, caramel, wood, some yeast. Soft on palate angelkostvo (1248) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 17, 2013
Ruby color with almost no head. Aroma of smoked meat, ash, malts, brown sugar, bananas, clove may be. Taste is light to medium sweet, smokey flavor, a bit sour. Medium body creamy texture, soft carbonation. The ABV is very well hidden.
