tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 0,5 l bottle. Dark brown/reddish color. Nice beige head. Very smoked aroma/flavor. Tar, caramell, bitter end. I love it!

Furseth (2117) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle: Deep red/brown clear colur, with a thin head. Aroma of tar, smoked, bacon. Flavor is almost the same,werry comlex, and smoky. Thin to medium body, medium to long smokey finish. This is not my type of beer.

bboeckl (142) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Pour was brown, with minimal foam. Very thin carbonation. Strong smoked aroma. Aroma of campfires, smoked sausage. Aroma engulfs the senses. Almost overpowering. Hickery smoked bacon, maple syrup, one slowly becomes accustomed to the smokiness and begins to discover other beautiful aspects--malty brown ale, sweet, succulant, carmely. Definately, some expertise was present in the making of this fine beer, however, it always comes back to the smoke. Unique, but not something I could drink often.

Poured dark with decent amount of foam. It really taste smoky and slightly bitter on the palate. Not bad but not remarkable either.

robforbes (2199) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2010 pour is a deep brown with a touch of red hues, bubbly egg-shell head, more than average carbonation. smell is definite smokey, beef jerky, hickory, just a bit of something sweet in the background, toffee or caramel. taste is of smoke, smoke, smoke, malt, wood, oily feel, each taste is a little better than the last, it is shocking at first and then as your taste-buds form to the unique taste it mellows out and is quite pleasant.

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2007
Smell is not very promising: sea water and old pennies. But the taste, body and look are fantastic. Subtle wood smoke and a sweet finish accompany this subtle, full-bodied and smooth bock-like beer. Expertly done.

Try this beer with a hand full of smoked almonds. Not ordinarily my cup of tea however great for something different

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Thick with strong smokiness which is more pleasant in the aroma than upon tasting. Too meaty after about the third sip.

thewolf (12189) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2007
Tap @ YNWA. Pours very thick deep brown with a great yellow-ish creamy head. Aroma is just as terible as the Urbock - lots of sausage, charcoal, barbecue. Very nice creaminess, but I still don’t like this shite... Sticky, meaty, smoky (well... doh!)... yuk!

This unusual beer is excellent for grilling, and nearly as good for drinking. It takes a few sips to become fully acquainted with this beer, but it quickly grows on you.
