evilsoc (191) - WALES - APR 14, 2008
Dark brown amber. Porter-like mild coffee beans aroma greeted me as I was pouring it. With a proper whiff it smells smokey but sweey and nutty too. I tasted hops before the smoke really came out in the flavour. the unquestionable peaty flavours so familiar from smoked meat. There is a zingy hop bitterness underneath that is balanced nicely. Smoke flavour lingers nicely. Well put together.

Interesting beer with a nice smoke aroma. The flavour is quite smokey too, but also sweet. Definitely an experience.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 12, 2008
Reddish brown with a dense head. Nasty smoke aroma, like smoked salmon and tar. The flavour is not that dominated by smoke though, being sweet and oak like. It’s an either or, and I haven’t really found out whether I like this type of beer or not.

pixeljunkie (3) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 8, 2008 does not count
Poured a deep brown with an almost unbelievable aroma of burning wood. Slight brown head. Shocking at first due to it’s unique flavors. Tastes like smoking a pipe, drinking a nut brown ale and eating cheese while sitting in front of a campfire. Bizarre but fantastic.

I don’t know how to rate this beer. The aroma is bacon. Nothing else, it just smells like bacon. Tastes the same way with some malty and grape notes. This beer is just really out there. The flavors are strong, but not what I want a beer to taste like.

daknole (10941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 5, 2008
Hard for me to rate these types of beer since I really cannot drink more than a sip. Hints of smoked fish, ham and bacon on the nose and in the flavor. Too much to drink. Maybe it would be grea to cook wtih?

bhensonb (14890) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. Smoky aroma; perhaps a bit of cheese. Dark brown color with an off-white head that ringed. Not very thick in body with fine, creamy carbonation. Flavor is essentially smoke, and it seems a touch woody. Finish is smoky, with some light bitterness. Interesting drink.

liinis (1769) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2008
0,5l bottle, nice etiquette :) dark copper brown, clear. medium off-white head leaves lace. aroma: LOVELY tar, grilled (smoked) sausage. eukalyptus. taste: eukalyptus, nice hops, sugar and salt with smoke. After taste: watery metallic, a bit bitter. leaves you a little disappointed.

mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2008
bottle: pours a rootbeer brown with a creamy just off white head. aroma is totally smoke, almost grill like smoke. behind all the smoke is a soft hint at sweeter malts. also believe i am getting a wood aroma. the flavour is quite light compare to the heavy smoke aroma. it has a definte smoke flavour but seems to blend well with the other sweeter malts in the beer. the palate plays well on the tounge and the beer is preety smooth to go down. the finish dries out alittle. very good.

Pyrozoid (361) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
(Dégusté avec french tickler) Rouge vin foncé. Un collet presque absent. Odeur de saumon fumé, peperette. Saveur très décevante avec un gout de peperette qui revient, coté salé et n peu poivré. Une biere qui semblait quand meme asser bien et qui finalement nous decois beaucoup.
