It smells smoked and it tastes smoked. The smoked flavor and scent masks everything in the beer making it hard to find any complexity. It is a nice change of pace if you have some time to invest in enjoying it, certainly not made to chug.

koshack (1539) - 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 (34) - 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.

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 (391) - 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.

Drunked 2 times on Tap in Bamberg, and collected some bottles to drink at home. The best way to drink this beer, is on tap at Sclenkerla. Something marvelous, one of the best ever I have drunk around the world. Bottle is good, but on Tap is more and more. Smoked...absolutely wonderful

rumore (175) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 26, 2016
From the bottle at L’angolo Blu, Rimini, Italy. Pours brilliant but dark brown, with very fine white foam. Aroma is smoked, but also dried figs. Body is tendentially light, worth some carbonation. Taste starts sweet, but then a well-persistent bitterness from the smoked barley comes up.

DonGregorio (115) - POLAND - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle. Clear dark red beer with small off-white head. Smokey aroma of ham, bacon, wood, a bit toasted, with lighter notes of bread and cherry. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter, lots of smoke, bacon, wood, some bread, caramel. Medium body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation. A real classic - smokey, meaty, brings back campfire memories.
