Intense! This is something that I think a lot of people wouldnt like, especially people that dont like oddball single malt scotches. Not that this is especially scotch-like, just similar in intensity.The peppers are kind of subdued - I wouldnt mind if they were more prominent, but theyre very nice where they are. Charcoal, but a really nice charcoal, as weird as that sounds, and all kinds of herbally stuff I cant put my finger on.

Prettige geur van gebrande mout, Kleur altijd goed. Geweldige karakterstieke smaak van rook en als je op let inderdaad lichtjes in de afdronk van chili. Noot ben een groot sambal gebruiker!!! Maar verrassend tegenover de koffie caramel en chocolade smaak. Palate echt rijk van smaak zoet, redelijk dik maar vooral plakkerig en creamy en de schuim blijft aan het glas plakken.

One of my favorite beer from De Molen, i really enjoyed the combination of smoke cover by the heat of the chilly and the Abv hidden behind them. Traces of caramel, wood. Pours dark brown color, medium carbonation, medium body. Bottle: 330ml

A rare beer. This is a beer smoked something strange. Only erveses had been smoked in Germany. There are dsegradat m, but if you encounter heir desquilibrada the smoke hid the rest of the beer.

Sometimes it takes a really good beer, to shift the paradigm you once held for a particular style. The smoked beers of Bamberg tend to be what come to mind when I reference the style. De Molens Rook & Vuur presented something totally different. Despite its hefty 8.2% ABV and its inclusion of a usually overwhelming ingredient, chilies, its a richy, meaty beer that captures the flavors of the style without the usual amount heaviness. Delicious notes of briny pork and cocoa. The chilies undoubtedly add a beautiful layer of smokiness, but I never would have pinpointed that flavor on my own. Its a complex, masterful Smoked brew.

HuskerTan (2078) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottle/Fest. A- Smoke, wood, subtle leather, slightly meaty. A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Chocolate, smoke, wood, slight umami. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- A really fine beer. Wouldve never guessed there are chili peppers in here. I can see now how they add a touch of spice but otherwise, this is loaded up with smoke and wood.

dnicolaescu (2441) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 10, 2017
BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy deep brown, small beige head. Smell really smoky and peaty, smoked salted fish, leather. Subtle caramel sweetness, rally smoky, smoked cheese. The fishing is moderate chili heat with some ashes and smoky bitterness. Not bad, not great either.
