Moebbels (760) - FINLAND - NOV 13, 2016
A very dark clear copper-colored beer with a little white foam on top. Nose has notes of beech smoke, smoked meat and some peat. Taste is sweet with a lingering, mild smoky finish. Soft carbonation and full palate but it is still easy to drink. Extremely well balanced and drinkable beer with good smoky aromas.

Frisch aus dem Holzfass in der Braugaststtte getrunken. Wie frischer Schwarzwlder Schinken aus dem Glas.

Madsen1635 (721) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2016
Draught. Clear dark brown pour with brown head. Aroma has smoked salmon and ham. Smells like a forrest fire with some burning meat. Taste is fresh with lots of smoke. High carbonation. This is not my preferred type of beer. Sorry smoke lovers

Dark brown pour. Tan head. Aroma of smoke, toasted malts, fatty smokey bacon. Flavor is smoke, smoked ham, bacon, slightly bitter hops, slightly sweet bread. Body is light. A great fall beer.

ciocanelu (1731) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 9, 2016
Clear brown color with tan head. Aroma has quite intense smoked malts, sweet, slightly sugary and a nice ham note. Taste is also sweet and malty, quite smoky, a bit roasty on the finish with a light bitterness. Medium body with medium to light carbonation. Overall its quite smooth and easy drinking. Maybe you have to adjust at first to the intense smokiness but once you did, it drinks really well.

Korcz (1845) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Legendarne piwo, nieustannie trzymające formę. Doskonale pijalne, z niesamowicie intensywnym aromatem i smakiem wędzonej szynki i dymu z ogniska. Do tego karmelowo-biszkoptowa słodowość. Pyszne.

LordBrew (229) - Ziemnice, POLAND - NOV 4, 2016
Piwo bardzo ciemno rubinowe, piana kremowa, zdobi szkło ale szybko opada. Aromat - wyrywa z kapci, monstrualna dawka wędzonej kiełbasy, szynki, drewna i ogniska, w tle karmel. Smak - początkowo szczypiące od karmelu ale z czasem uwalnia 100% wędzonki. Daleko w tle nutka skrki chleba i lekka "przypaloność". Fantastycznie zbalansowane - potęga wędzonki przeplata się z solidną ale nieśmiałą słodyczą. Wysycenie średnie. Wrażenia z picia tej piwnej ambrozji porwnywalne tylko i wyłącznie z innymi dziełami Schlenkerli! Cudo!

aromat: wędzony, bardzo przyjemny, piana niska, w smaku dominacja wędzonki

Tap into a snifter showing well filtered wood brown with a finger of quickly dissipating tanned white foam. The nose shows a big mix of bacon, charred wood, and light peat. The palate is light bodied and highly carbonated. Sweet malt forward then flavors of the same smoke and charred wood in the background. Bacon and more smokiness on the finish.
