maar (28) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 12, 2017
500 ml bottle. A distinct smoky flavour and aroma that brings notes of smoked ham and smoked sausages. An earthy bitterness there is to be found that together with the smoky flavour really gives this beer a punch to it. It’s also rather sweet and while being very drinkable the taste lasts a long time in your mouth. Light to medium body but packed with flavour. A favourite of mine.

Demens (402) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 11, 2017
0,5l bottle. Clear dark copper/brown colour with slowly shrinking big foamy off-white head. Aroma: Smokey ham with hiding caramel notes. Taste: Very intense smokey start, maybe the smokiest from Bamberg and has the most bitter mouthfeel. Medium body with medium carbonation. Medium lasting bitter (and smokey) finish. A very good smoked beer and really has the strongest smokey caracter but not as smooth as the urbock.

Maersk (257) - MOLDOVA - FEB 8, 2017
Dark brown, clear, small beige head. Smells smoked bacon, wood, a bit of alcohol. Medium to light body, smoky notes (not as strong as in the aroma), light bitterness at the end. Good balance and quite refreshing, but i wish it could be more dense.

thejackpacker (332) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2017
Bottle at Youth Hostel Nuremburg. A great, classic smoked beer. Slight bacon flavour but much less potent than other (admittedly better beers like Weird Beard Smoke). This is a deeply malty drink but very drinkable (although filling taste wise).

Gangstergafje (945) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2017
The beer looks nice. Different than I expected. The beer is quite dark. The color of the beer is nice dark coppery reddish brown. The beer is perfectly clear. On top of the beer a nice thick layer of soft, fluffy brownish foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, leaving a nice thick creamy drape. Nice. The smell of the beer is delicious. It is a true smoke beer. There is a nice little sour twist to the smoke, besides the nice delicate but firm bitterness. Even though the smoke smell of the beer is strong, it is not unbalanced. Besides the smoke there is a nice malty sweeter aroma and also some nice hops. The smell of the beer is good. It is balanced, full of different aromas. Very pure, real smoke. The taste is also good. It is not that intense as the smell. Te smoke is there, but milder. It has that same bitter ands slightly sour twist. There is also a touch of liquorice. Malty sweets and some hoppy bitters are also present. It is nice and balanced. I like it, i like this style of beer in general. The palate is good. Medium body, nice and smooth and medium carbonation. The finish is nice. It isn’t that long, but filled with nice smokey and bitter flavours. I like it, a very good one.

Sorprendente cerveza con olores a ahumados, pero respetando el paladar, con mucho cuerpo y equilibrada.
