Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2012
Pours a dull chestnut color with an inch or so of khaki head. Oh, the aroma. Holy smokes! Pun intended, of course. Very smokey and sweet aroma tickles the nostrils in a way that makes say "Oh, thats nice." Woody, campfire smoke mixed with caramel and brown sugar wafts so gracefully from my mug I can practically see it. If campfires smelled so good Id find myself sleeping on dirt in a tent thrice a week. The flavor is much more subtle than the nose. Slightly dry, nutty, and smokey with no more than a wisp of noble hops to say Auf Wiedersehen! as the sip embarks on a perilous journey down your throat. The palate is robust yet quaffable, rating a perfect 10 on the Goldilocks scale of alcohol content vs. drinkability. Without resigning myself to hyperbole, I must unequivocally state that this is the most perfect beer ever crafted by humans or outer space aliens.

Aromaty wędzonego sera żłtego, jakichś domowych wędlin. W tym piwie mgłbym się kąpać. Wszystko, ale to naprawdę wszystko w nim jest dla mnie perfekcyjne. Dym, słody, ślady chmielu. Genialne.

Dark brown with an off-white head. Medium body. Aroma of smoked sausage, wood and dark toffee. Flavour very malty, quite sweet, with molasses and dried fruit. Very good.

MikeBeermaster (764) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - MAY 8, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2017 Pretty intense aroma of smoked ham with notes of wood and malty roasted base. Deep brown in the glass with thick off-white head. Flavor is dominated by huge smokiness, a lot of meat, wooden notes and ashy background. Finish reminds some carbonized ham. Ass kicking brew.

European Beer Swap Tasting #7 typowa schlenkerla. Dużo ogniskowej wędzonki, ciemny, wpadający w orzechy posmak słodu. Gładziutkie. Treściwe. Chyba mj ulubieniec z rodzinki.

Nikokaoja (207) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - APR 21, 2017
21. 4. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Mellowed down version of Fastenbier with a bit toned down aroma and flavour, but still smokin'. Almost silky mouthfeel with almost black colour. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle to mug. Pour is a dark brown cola color with a lively head that was thick and tan. Nose is huge malt, smoke, roasted wood. Taste is medium bodied, sweet with a bit of sourness from the smoke. Finishes thick on the mouth with a smooth smoky finish. Great
