OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 1, 2013
1pt 9 fl oz served in an allagash glass. A - Dark brown with amber highlights, 2 fingers of sturdy off-white head, the head is moundy and clings to the edges of the galss. S - Very smokey aroma, some lye soap aroma, burnt grass, smoked Canadian bacon, bbq wood smoke, smells like sweet black pepper bbq sauce. T - Smoked bamboo stalks, smoldered grass, some sugary fruit in the background, grassy hops invade the smoke toward the finish. Some burnt caramel lies underneath the smoke. Savory smoked meats come to mind. Finishes quick with a swift but dry smokey note. M - Lush carbonation and feel, medium to light body, dry smokey finish. Very focused on the smoke obviously but lets the other flavors play out. The aroma is much stronger in smoke than the flavor. The aroma has more of a bbq smell, while the taste has more of a smoked grass flavor. Awesome if you like smoked beers. Serving type: bottle 04-12-2013

Appearance - black, Aroma - bacon-esque smokiness. Taste - ashtray. Palate - didn’t pay too much attention as I was too preoccupied with finding it disgusting. Overall - the bacon-esque smokiness promise something interesting, but it turns out to just be ashtray. I really, really disliked it, and the only reason I’m semi-glad that I tasted it is so I know now how your archetypical rauchbier tastes and that I should pass them on.

Sircatis (231) - FRANCE - APR 14, 2017
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Achetée au E-Center en Allemagne. Bière très foncée. Un nez de salée et fumé comme du lard. Ça sent aussi le grillé. En bouche le grillé ressort plus. Goût très complexe. Bière étonnante. Une première pour moi. Mais plutôt agréable à déguster.

Un ottima birra, aroma di malti tostati e affumicato, al palato rispetta benissimo l’aroma con una facilità di bevuta ottima. Consigliatissima.
