dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Pours a dark murky brown with minimal head, no lacing. Aroma obvious of smoke, caramel malt, and not a whole lot else. Flavor is complex, but just not my style.

500ml bottle at the 2017 Cambridge Beer Festival. Dark mahogany/brown and translucent. Fair bit of carbonation but very little resultant head. Heavy smoke on the aroma but there is also a good dollop of chocolate malt. The bitter taste perseveres to the finish. Its far from subtle but lovely nonetheless. Blackberry, burnt sausage, bitter chocolate and yest extract combine in the ambrosial aftertaste. A great beer, maybe a bit heavy for what it is but I expected that! Delicious.

At Chappies social house. Pours dark dark brown with a paper tin white head. Aroma and taste. of toasted burnt wood and or smoked sausage. Finishes with continued liquid smoke. I appreciate the effort but not for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

evannell (1015) - Krakw, POLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Aromaty wędzonego sera żłtego, jakichś domowych wędlin. W tym piwie mgłbym się kąpać. Wszystko, ale to naprawdę wszystko w nim jest dla mnie perfekcyjne. Dym, słody, ślady chmielu. Genialne.

Sjohnh (913) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Dark brown with an off-white head. Medium body. Aroma of smoked sausage, wood and dark toffee. Flavour very malty, quite sweet, with molasses and dried fruit. Very good.

MikeBeermaster (765) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - MAY 8, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2017 Pretty intense aroma of smoked ham with notes of wood and malty roasted base. Deep brown in the glass with thick off-white head. Flavor is dominated by huge smokiness, a lot of meat, wooden notes and ashy background. Finish reminds some carbonized ham. Ass kicking brew.

European Beer Swap Tasting #7 typowa schlenkerla. Dużo ogniskowej wędzonki, ciemny, wpadający w orzechy posmak słodu. Gładziutkie. Treściwe. Chyba mj ulubieniec z rodzinki.

Nikokaoja (207) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - APR 21, 2017
21. 4. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Mellowed down version of Fastenbier with a bit toned down aroma and flavour, but still smokin'. Almost silky mouthfeel with almost black colour. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
