nephirem (334) - CROATIA - JAN 22, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Pours a clear dark ruby body with two finger creamy beige head. OK head retention and lacing. Smell is nice, burned malts, caramel, touch of smoke. Interesting bacon flavor in the background. Medium body with average to high carbonation. Smooth texture, nice on the tongue. Moderately bitter taste. Aroma very interesting, quite weird at first. Smoked bacon and charcoal dominate the palate. Woody. Strong grain presence in the background. Lovely smoky aftertaste and mouthfeel. Slight metallic acidity. Regular finish. Overall, interesting beer to try. Not something I’d drink every day, but quite nice nonetheless.

Savuinen aromi, ei niinkään vahvasti maussa mutta silti läsnä. Maukas ja helposti juotava.

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.

koshack (1553) - 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 (1060) - 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 (10) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2017
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.
