750ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear deep amber color with red hue. Medium size, yellow head, stays. Smoked, rubbery, malty, grainy, slightly sour notes in aroma. Smoked, but weird fruity notes as well. Weird one. Some yeast detected and also rubber. Weird in a good way. FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 28, 2014

Very pleasant smoky aroma, but alas there’s a sourness to it which is a little off-putting. Was tempting to be a gusher, but if you ease the cork out gently you’re OK. But that makes sure it’s great in the glass, a nice deep red and a self-persistent tight pale beige head. Pleasant taste, quite a full malty body, a little sweet and bready, pleasant roast. Smokiness subtle, only comes back in the finish. This is rich and bocky to me, the other guys mentioned "triple", but this is a bock to me. Nice malts, do like that. Anna says pineapple, but she’s mad.

Clear golden amber with a well appointed beige covering that retains.
Nose is smoked malt, TCP, medicinal hit, light spice, dark fruit notes.
Taste comprises caramel, less smoke than on the nose but smoked malt well evident, hoppy backnotes.
Medium + bodied, spritzy carbonation - overcooked, too much, lightly warming booze at the last hurrah that is kept well in check for almost 10%.
Ok smoked affair.

Bottle - Vintage 2012 - Whiskey and barrel notes. Clear gold with a decent beige head. Very carbonated, tons of whiskey with some burn. Could be straight alcohol. Not bad, but not beer anymore. miquelcrush (2053) - Granollers, SPAIN - JUL 12, 2014

No m’ha acabat de fer el pes. El gust de fumat la fa peculiar però massa forta pel meu gust. Com a curiositat està bé provar-la però no és el meu esil.
