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!!

oczek2015 (386) - Przemysl, POLAND - APR 24, 2017
Butelka 0,5 z datą ważności do 05.2017. BARWA: jasno brunatne, klarowne. PIANA: obfita, kremowa, jasno beżowa, trwała, ładny lacing.AROMAT: bardzo przyjemna bukowa wędzonka przypominająca wędzoną szynkę, bekon, momentami nawet nuty kojarzą ce się z oscypekiem z grilla. Naprawdę przyjemny ,stonowany i trwały aromat. SMAK: podobnie jak w aromacie ale delikatnej, można wyczuć słodowość pod palonością i delikatnie popiołowym finiszem. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, gładkie, średnio pełne, pijalne.

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.
