330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Pitch black color. Small off-white head. Smoke, leather, peat in aroma. Peat, roast, malty, smoky flavor. So full bodied. Smooth and silky to drink. Fantastic beer! DruncanVeasey (8326) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
330ml from Beer Gonzo. Very deep ruby with a loose beige foam receding to a halo. Top smoked sausage, Chorizo, paprika, chipotle, smoked ham, background bramble aroma. Smoked ham, cheese, beechwood taste with soapy hop, blackcurrant and a bitter roasted finish. Pure Bamberg. And then some. FatPhil (17165) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 21, 2013
330ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge) Camons (13408) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2013
Lovely soft sweet smoky aroma, some smoked sausage in it. Smooth and full in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Lovely full roasty body. Smokiness very nice, but I do also see the band-haid phenolic aspect too. Really no sign of 7% at all, superbly drinkable. It could easily be 4.5%. Like the tarry finnish, and though it may be slightly acidic, all I want to do is to drink more of this beer.
Bottle @ Christers. Pours dark brown with a small light brown head. Aroma roasted malt, caramel, peat, smoke, rubber and medicine. Flavor is malts, caramel, little smoke, peat, medicine notes. Thin to medium body, soft carbonation. 100613

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a dark brown colour with a little light at the edges. There is a thin tan head with some broken lace. The aroma is mildly smoky with some malt. The flavour is medium bitter, with liqourice, roasted malt and chocolate. The palate is rather smooth and the bitterness lingers for a while in the finish.
