mmhws (12) - Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Aroma: strong smokey smell Appearance: almost opaque black with offwhite head that quickly settles to about half a finger: Taste: not as smokey as I would’ve anticipated from the smell, but the smoke definitely is the overwhelming taste. nice light sweetness. Palate: carbonation is average. somewhat watery initial aftertaste and then the smoke really lingers. Overall good for the smoked beer style. Definitely enough smoke to know its there, but not to the point where that’s all you taste.

kasap (25) - Skopje, MACEDONIA - JAN 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark brown with rather small off-white head that dissipates quickly, leaving just a small rim with minimal lacing. Nice, fully developed smokey aroma, resembles smoked bacon, with hints of molasses. Similar moderate to strong smokey aroma (bacon, sausage) with touch of charcoal, molasses and ripe dark fruits. Medium bodied, creamy texture with soft to medium carbonation and smokey aftertaste. Very good.

Super smokyness, super drinkability. This is a fantastic beer, with less malt than the urbok

koshack (1543) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Kolor brązowo- czerwony, klarowne. Piana beżowa, drobna, bardzo obfita. W aromacie wyraźna wędzoność, są nuty tytoniowe. Trochę nut ziemistych. Przypomina w aromacie stare, nasycone impregnatami drewno. W smaku lekko drewniane, znów mocna wędzonka. Delikatna słodycz w smaku, ale też trochę goryczki. Świetne piwo.

Quick3Beers (1056) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Pours a rich brown from a bottle. Aroma of wood smoke and chocolate, a hint of tobacco. Similar flavor, a bit of smoked meat. I must have a cold I don’t know about, it’s not terribly smoky. Good beer.

kamanova_boy (36) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 7, 2017
Draft. Small white head, dark red colour. Strong smoke aroma, even with traces of smoked sausage. Also, strong smoke taste, which slightly kills other tastes , but still above average smoke beer.

prof222772 (9) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2017 does not count
Aroma: toast, malt, a lot of smoke. Dark amber color, big solid head. Medium body, nuts and a little sweetness in the taste. It should have mode body in my opinion for such a strong aroma, but one of the best smoked beer anyway.

Rafuck (8) - POLAND - JAN 3, 2017 does not count
Na plus zas?uguje wygl?d, betonowa piana i ciemnorubinowa barwa, idealnie klarowne. Zapach to g?ównie dym, kie?basa i szynka, ale wychodz? te? melanoidy, chleb, rodzynki i odrobina pumpernikla. Pijano?? na bardzo wysokim poziomie: typowy dla wedzonki smak, przeplatajacy si? z porz?dnym marzenem. Nagazowane w punkt, pozostawia ?ci?gaj?cy posmak, przez co jest strasznie pijalne. Jak kto? lubi te klimaty, to koniecznie powinien si?gn?? po to piwo.

davidezdonz (392) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - DEC 29, 2016
A 500ml bottle with a best before date of May 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass. It poured a clear dark amber colour with a two fingered tanned head that had decent retention and left nice lacing. Aromas are strong smokey, bacon, ham and toast. Tastes like smoked meats especially ham and charcoal-ly upfront before giving way to sweet-ish caramel malts and a touch of fruit. Creamy, medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation. Overall a very nice smoked beer with lovely smoked ham aromas and taste balanced with a touch of sweetness.
