beertholomeus (1814) - California, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Pours a dark amber color with off white head. Smoked malt, caramel and wood aroma. Reminds me of smoked meats. Smoked malt, caramel and wood flavors with a thin body. Smokey malt finish.

equisetum (159) - Kielce, POLAND - DEC 13, 2017
Brązowe klarowne piwo z niską pianą. W zapachu wędzonka bukowa, ale taka na prawdę porządna, oraz słód. W smaku mamy wędzoność, ale także bardzo przyjemną słodowość i lekkość. Piwo nie jest słodkie, ma przyjemną - wędzoną goryczkę. Dla mnie piwa Schlenkerli to wzór do naśladowania dla wszystkich, którzy chcą uwarzyć piwo wędzone a Marcowe jest jednym z lepszych.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2017 Pours from the bottle black and completely still, no head, strong smoked sausage aroma, slightly sweet at first but the smoke comes through in the neck

p0urmeac0ld0ne (312) - Merthyr Tydfil, WALES - DEC 8, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Fantastic beer with a strong smokey taste. My girlfriend said that this tasted like bacon, which made me laugh. I can see where she’s coming from, but the dense smokey flavour reveals so much more if you give it time. Bottle from Beerhawk, on more than one occasion :)

3.1
ArtificialCyst (1374) - Szczecin, POLAND - DEC 6, 2017
Bottle somewhere in Berlin. Aroma: Smoked meat, some bread, not too intensive. Appearance: Very high head, brown body. Taste: Medium-sweet, seems a bit empty, low bitterness. Palate: Semi-sweet finish, medium-low body, low carbonation. A bit disappointing.

Rychuku (247) - POLAND - DEC 4, 2017
I just love this brewery. The smell is very good, strong smoked cheese aroma with some german, brownish malts. Nice, tall, but quickly disappearing head, colour of dark ruby/brass. Malty, full, almost creamy, smooth and very drinkable. The smoked aftertaste is present till the very end. Really recommendable.

rane (1103) - Nibe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown with medium brown head. Aroma lots of smoke, quite much like an ashtray. Taste smoked and some malty nots. I don´t think I ever get to like this style.

3.3
Blastomorpha (134) - - DEC 3, 2017
Dark ruby with a thick reddish head.
The aroma is dominated by the smokiness: meat, cheese or anything else, hope you you like smoke in your beer :)
Very watery.
I write this review after having this for the second time in few weeks. Didn't dig it so much alone, make 2-3 points lower on the Overall value, but along with some appropriate food like Bratwurst and Kraut was definitely more enjoyable for me.

Kiezmar (856) - Kraków, POLAND - DEC 1, 2017

aleanguz91 (154) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - NOV 29, 2017
Bevuta il 29/11/2017 @TheKitchenInn in Galliate (NO). Colore nero con riflessi tonaca di frate.
Bel cappello di schiuma cremosa bianca sporca.
Al naso l'affumicato ricorda lo speck e la scamorza.
In bocca ancora l'affumicato, con nota pepata sul finale che stuzzica la lingua e invita alla bevuta. Media carbonazione.
