KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 Bottle. Poured a clear medium brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) off-white creamy head that was mostly lasting and had fair lacing. The aroma was of a heavy smoked malt, a very light bitter hop and a moldy leathery yeast with a heavy note of smoke and meat (like a smoked ham). It tasted a little acidic and mildly malty and a little bitter with an intense smoky flavor from start to finish. The flavor lasted an extremely long time and all I could taste was the liquid smoke that was left behind on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was about half way to medium in body with a watery yet creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Overall a very different brew than what I am used to, it was kind of like drinking liquid smoke straight out of the bottle. I have had other Smoked Beers but none this intense. Needless to say, not all beers are for everyone and this one is definitely not for me!!

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 (1546) - 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 (1058) - 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 (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.

Rafuck (8) - POLAND - JAN 3, 2017 does not count
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.
