Aromat: z butelki intensywna szynkowa wędzonka okraszona chlebową kwasowością, ślinianki szaleją, ze szkła wędzonka staje się trochę ogniskowa w kierunku popiołowej, dalej dominuje, pojawiają się przyjemne aromaty ciemnych słodów Wygląd: ciemnobrązowa z rubinowymi refleksami, piana wysoka, kremowa, gęsta, drobnopęcherzykowa, zostawia śliczny lacing Smak: słony na początku, potem uderzenie wędzonki, potężne, ale bardzo przyjemne, trochę dalej karmel, lekka kwaśna chlebowość i ciemne słody, żelazo dość wyczuwalne, goryczka średnia w kierunku niskiej, lekko zalegająca Podniebienie: średnie nagazowanie, bardzo pijalne, średnia pełnia, aksamitna faktura Podsumowanie: mniam! Mały minus za żelazo, które w sumie jakoś bardzo nie przeszkadza, poza tym jest wyraziście i wędzono, tego chciałem

In short, BACON beer! Appearance: color of watery BBQ sauce with thin tan-color head. Aroma: really strong smoke and caramel smell~! It's like I'm BBQ-ing bacon strips! Taste: Liquid smoke BBQ sauce with some malt sourness~ it feels like drinking beer and eating bacon at the same freaking time! Finish: Medium long with some malt sourness Overall: Quite satisfying and its good to know that at last I can have the sensation of BBQ anytime while drinking this beer and forget about all the mess to prepare for BBQ.

Boca 0,5L - kupljena u Njemačkoj - još jedno odlično pivo iz Bamberga, alkohol je preuzeo dim koji se tek na kraju osjeti

Piwo barwy brązowej z niezbyt trwałą pianką. W aromacie wędzony oscypek, jabłko, odrobina karmelu i suszonych owoców. Wędzony ser dominuje tu jednak wyraźnie. W smaku również świetna oscypkowa wędzonka, ciemne owoce, lekki karmel, delikatne zioła, suszone owoce. Kolejne dobre piwo schlenkerli.

From @SinH4 during Euro Secret Santa 2017 >> Bière brune à la robe grenat quasi sans col. Son nez fort fumé exhale au surplus des senteurs de caramel, de malts rôtis et un houblon minéral. La bouche fort fumée à l'attaque, livre un texture onctueuse quasi crémeuse accompagné de saveurs boisées sèches. Il s'en suit une sensation biscuitée granuleuse qui reste sur la langue en finale. Le tout bien équilibrée avec des saveurs tendues minérale légèrement surettes qui assèchent le palais.

0.5 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is red-brown, clear and tan head. Aroma is smoky sauna. Taste has obviously lots of smoke - at first in an aggressive way. Then you get sweetness from alcohol to balance everything out. This is tuned up version really of the regular product. Smoke covers well the higher ABV.

Smell of smokiness and chark. The flavor of black malt, meat, smoke and carbon. Good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth forever. Good and smoked beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
