Nice soft smokey aroma. Some sweet pepperiness too. Some thinness to the palate, noticeable carbonation. Slightly less exciting in the taste. A nice smoky roast, dry, touch woody, burnt wood. Has a kind-of wooden barrel aged feel to it, that I like. And that charred wood stays for thhe finish. Shame about the thinneess, but on the flip-side, theres no alcohol in the taste. In the finish you can detect some vapour, but its not out of place. I lov Mennos brews, but for some reason the smoked ones always leave me disappointed (only relative to the level of brilliance I expect from Menno, not in an absolute scale, as you can hopefully tell).

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.

Compact smoked bacon flavour with a delicate clove/aniseed spice and a chilli afterburn. Side flavour of peaty whiskey vapour.

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 (2041) - 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 (2388) - 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.

Rating #2362 - 2016.03.05 - Bottle from CBI - 8.2% - Pours a dark black in colour with a minimal tan head that fades quickly. Distinct smoky aroma and bold roasted chilies. Very unique body, mild alcohol warmth, predominant chili pepper, and wood smokiness on the palate tempered with the dry, bitter roast malt character - mild chalk, mild earth. Lovely beer.
