Draught at Rich O’s Publick House: Burnished golden. Creamy white ring deposits wispy lace. Greasy, petroleumlike smoke aromas, with a light note of sugar cookie, smoked cracker dough, mineral, browned biscuit, peach marmalade and apple peels. Soft, compact carbonation. Spicy licorice-tinged hop bitterness is firmed up by a stiff dose of minerals and equally firm woody smoke. Delightfully fluffy smokiness, with nary a hint of ash or astringency. Some faintly apparent juicy esters emerge alongside a suggestion of orange preserves. Sturdy malt is deepened with some springy and grassy hay notions, though it loses some of its sound structure as a bit of wet hay begins to creep in. Vibrant hop flavor imparts some dense yet somewhat succulent texture to the otherwise smoke- and mineral-charged center. Plentiful aniseed-tinged hops accompany a lively yet thoroughly fulfilling blend of dry malt and breaths of smoke in the finish. A straightforward version, more or less, with that telltale Heller-Trum cleanliness and balance. A fun quaff.
Pours a semi-clear orangish brown with a medium sized foamy white head. Aroma of lightly smoke ham. Light smokey flavor. Smooth with a nice aftertaste. Not as malty as the Marsen or quite as good as the Doppelbock sokuzs1 (1356) - POLAND - JUN 27, 2017

Aromat młodego piwa przejawia się w postaci lekko jabłkowej kwaśności. W smaku podobnie. Trochę puste, wodniste. Jakoś nie do końca mi przypadło do gustu. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 18, 2017
draught at Schlenkerla Bemberg. Deep golden with a creamy white head and a promising smoky nose. Malty start with shy smoky hints, hints of honey and some shy roasetd malt flavours plus earthy hops and more shy smoke. Quite subtle smokyness, nevertheless very pleasant. Easy drinking summer beer.
