Purple brown color. Earthy (IMO not smoky) aroma with nutmeg, pepper and a hint of raspberry. Earthy, dusty flavor. Spicy and hoppy. Bitter almonds aftertaste. Not without quality, but certainly not my taste. thewolf (12631) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle. [thank you, skortila]olsvammel (7241) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2011
Pours red amber with a large, fizzy, off-white head. Aroma is smoky, some butterscotch, peity, and a flowery hoppiness. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour starts off with just a slight hint of strawberries, then the peity smoke takes over. Caramel all-around. Nice.
Bottle from the bartender at Lowlander. It poured a hazy brown liquid with a big brown head. Unfortunately I believe this one was a bit to old (the brewer warned me though). Sour smell with some chocolate. A bit funky taste with smoked ham and malts. Thanks for the bottle though, I got a feeling this beer was allot better a year or so ago. caesar (7165) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2009
Bottled @ Olfestival 09 pre-tasting. Clear copper color, short off-white head. Aroma of smoke, peat, some dusty malt. Smokey taste, but not undrinkable like the virklund we just had. Quite nice stuff. skortila (5905) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2009

An exstreamly weird beer w have here, not a smoked as i have found them to be anyway. Aroma is of white woods. Taste is like drinking a smoked ham with cigar smoke playing with you. intresting as expected. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2005
Bottled. Aroma of almost pure smoke with a light sourness in the background. Cloudy, beige irregular head, good lace. Sweet, smoke, light bitter, some varnish, little sticky. Although not as complex as most rauchbieren from Bamberg still a nice example of the style. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2005
(Bottled) Muddy brown color with a large, mostly fading head. Strongly ham-smoky and tarry aroma with caramely malt. Smoothly malty, tar, menthol and smoked ham flavor. Hides the ABV well. Medium-bodied, smoothly carbonated palate. Interesting and quite pleasant, although the tar and smoke pretty much cover everything else. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle at tasting, vintage: best before april 2007. Thanks for the trade, NoiZe! Cork pops with a loud bang. Pours murky brown with a very quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma of dusty doppelbock with carbonated water. Some fruity malts and a bit of smoke and peat. Flavor is smokey, peaty, malty and with some sugar, leather, slightly bitter and licorice in the finish. Nicely aged brew with surprisingly very lively carbonation and a creamy texture. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2010
