Stubby bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of smoke, bitter chocolate, carmel and raisin. Palate was medium bodied and mooth. Flavors of smoke, carmel, ligt molasses and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth lingering smokey finish.

KyotoLefty (9973) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2008 2008 Version, draught at Qbrick. Black, with a medium head. Aroma of smoked salmon or bacon, with caramel malts underneath. Smoke flavor, going to big caramel malts, to a dry, bitter, surprisingly hoppy finish. Chewy and thick. Very clean finish, though, not at all cloying or over-sweet. Fantastic. 2007 version: bottle from Yamaoka. Almost black, with a tall fine tan head. Light to medium smoked aroma, very malty, slight caramel, a bit sweet. A little bit fruity. Lightly smoked flavor, sweetish, rich malt, excellent balance. Caramel, chocolate, a touch of dark fruit. Hard to tell its strength. Less smoke than the regular. Very well balanced. Excellent!

Marheb (5632) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 29, 2016
(En ft chez Popeye): corce fume, crales riches, beaucoup de minraux et une certaine croustillance globale qui surprend avec autant de panache au niveau des saveurs.

TimE (5608) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2007
Very odd beer that might be a mix of a couple of their beers. Extremely dark brown color. Very slightly sour nose, but almost no smell. Where is the smoke??? I was very confused at the start. Then the sip.... BAM a huge smoke whallop hits you. Smooth. Beyond the smoke there are bananas, cloves, liquorice and chocolate. Excellent. Finishes like a Wiezenbock. Even after the beer warmed up the nose was totally muted. Still overall very enjoyable.
