Bottle. [thank you, skortila]skortila (5873) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2009
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.
Bottled, aged 4-5 years. At a cosy local pub near the brewery. Bram, the maker of the beer was there as well accidentaly. Aroma has malts, smoke whisky, peat. Brown coloured beer with no head. The taste is slightly bitter, caramel malty sweet has smoke. Quite peaty towards the finish. Medium bodied. NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2009
Bottled, also aged 4-5 years. Described as a strong scotch by Bram the brewer of this beer. Brown, mahony colored brew. Malty, smoky and peated aroma. Flavor is vinous, caramel, smoky, malty, some bitterness, some honey. After a while peated indeed. We got a bottle from Bram to take home. I hope he starts brewing again. Overall a nice brew.

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.

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. 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. 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.
