UPDATED: DEC 31, 2016 Cerveza ahumada en su punto justo, el sabor a humo no se hace exagerado y est muy equilibrada en general. Muy recomendable.

Vinx (117) - ITALY - DEC 29, 2016
Aroma of smoke, speck and wood mainly, some caramel and chocolate are hidden by those ones. Very clean dark amber color with a magnificent long lasting tan foam. It tastes like it smells but with some malt sweetness. Its sweet but the smoke harshness and some bittering hops balance it properly. Low carbonation. Its only 6.5% ABV but its so full bodied and creamy so that I guess it comes from a very high OG but its under-attenuated. Really a peculiar beer: spicy, sweet, bitter, with a massive body but somehow fresh and not cloying.

It pours dark amber with ruby hues. The head is brown and has moderate retention. It has a deep, pleasant smoky aroma. There are also wood aromas with some oak. There are hints of malt in the background with a ever so slight hint of fruit. There is a rich combination of malt and smoked flavors. The malts have a maillard flavor to them. The smoke includes oaken wood flavors as well as traditional smoked flavors. There are also hints of plums in the background notes with a touch of floral elements. Overall, this is a complex smoky beer with combinations of rich malts and smoked elements with hops and esters in the background notes.

Nurmis (498) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium sized tanned head. Smokiness, caramel malts. Smoke aroma is sharper than in "Mrzen", but a really good beer with nice mouthfeel none the less.

puren (843) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - DEC 19, 2016
PREZENTACJA: klarowne, brązowo-rubinowe, dość obfita drobniutka piana opada do obrączki, średnio zdobi szkło;
AROMAT: wyraźna wędzonka ogniskowo-szynkowa, cukier trzcinowy, w tle bardzo delikatne nuty opiekane;
ODCZUCIE: ciało niskie, nisko nasycone, lekko wykleja podniebienie;
SMAK: intensywny, uderzenie słodyczy, gorzkiego karmelu, lekkiego alkoholu, połączonych z wyraźną krtką kiełbasianą wędzonką;
OGLNIE: podoba mi się to piwo, jest konkretne; gdyby nie tak wysoka słodycz, byłoby to jedno z moich ulubionych piw wędzonych drewnem.

[email protected] Pours clear dark brown with thick tan head. Aroma has malt, with caramel, nuts, chocolate notes, lightly sweet and distinct smoked. Taste is semi-sweet and malty, caramel, walnut, dried fruit, hints of chocolate and roasted malts with a pleasant smoke and warmth of alcohol. Aftertaste is complex and semi-dry. One of the best beers Ive ever tasted!
