Smells exactly like smoked gouda. Looks great, but taste is too much for me. Very complex, yet very nasty... to me atleast. Prob. won’t buy again.

Bottle from The Cave, Glasgow. Beer served in 12°C, Nonik Glass. Intense aroma of smoke (smoked ham or cheese), pumpernickel bread, ash. Taste is smooth, quite sweet malt, well balanced with rich smokiness. I wish to drink it again someday near to bonfire with some pork sausages.

50cl bottle offerte par des amis de Bamberg. Belle robe foncée. On est sur du bacon grillé. Très fumé et tourbé.

Beautiful dark copper brown, big off white head. Aroma is intense smoke, then rich malt. Taste is sweetly malty, notes of smoke, light cocoa. Mouthful is surprisingly light, but quite smooth.

castor010 (241) - Kraków, POLAND - MAR 13, 2017
Aromat - intensywna wędzonka bukowa, trufle i pumpernikiel ze śliwką, nuta popiołu. Czysty, lagerowy charakter. Przyjemnie słodowy i wędzony. Prosty, ale zarazem ciekawy. Goryczka średnio niska, lekko zalega.

Smells like bacon, and the local butcher’s when they are smoking meats for the week. Then like smoked cheeses. It evolved / changed and then came back to the start again. Wow! Not too strong, but wow! Taste was nutty and sweet. Palate was cleansing and the smoke was mostly on the nose and not on the tongue. Went well with pork spare ribs. Won’t be a staple of mine, but will be for had again for novelty value or for the right meal. But the Aroma - Wow!

500 ml bottle served in mug. Dark brown and red colour, beige fluffy head. Roasted and burnt malt, smoke, coffee and caramel aroma. Bitter-sweet and very balanced. Soft carbonated, full body. Smoky finish. Nice!

Bebida en vaso a partir de botella de 50 cl. Una cerveza espectacular, pero sobre todo original. Muy diferente a cualquier cosa que haya probado antes. En cuanto a su aroma, es potente y esta cerca de rozar la perfección. Es ahumado que en momentos recuerda al bacon, salmón ahumado e incluso café. Su apariencia es oscura, casi color café, con algunas ligeras notas rubí y una densa y espesa corona de espuma color beige que se mantiene constante durante toda la toma. Es sabor es muy particular y va en consonancia con su aroma. Poderoso y ahumado. Para terminar, su paladar está a una gran altura y deja notas de café.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a very dark opaque with a small white head and an aroma of toffee, smoked eel, roasted malt, raisin, dough and bacon. The taste is medium sweet and very smokey, this is a really nice smoked beer!
