fiulijn (20221) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2011
UPDATED: APR 27, 2012
2012-04-27, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 9.6% ABV, 7-5-8-4-15=39
First pour of the keg; hazy red-amber color, with a generous, nice creamy head. The aroma is not fully appealing, because not only it has the (appreciated) smoke, but also a strange rancid sourness. Strong body, sweet malt and caramel flavor, that would make a good Doppelbock; on top of that, there is the expected strong smoke flavor, sweetness, light malt sourness; it has a respectable bitterness level, and some alcohol warmth. Maybe just too sweet for this combination of smoke and rancidity.
Good, but excessive, unelegant.

2011-12-09, cask at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 10% ABV, 8-5-8-4-17=42
Hazy mahogany color, with huge compact head. The aroma is quite cheesy, almost English, a bit smokey. The body is structured, the mouthfeel is smooth; it has a fat flavor of malt and caramel, quite sweet; the smoke is present but not as strong as the Schlenkerla, or at least it’s hidden by other factors; the alcohol can be perceived; also traces of yeast; the bitterness is quite strong, with some dark caramel too in the final.
Very good, but side to side with the Schlenkerla Urbock, this one is rough; big but less elegant. It gets more appreciation with the second glass, and slow drinking.

2010-06-04, RBESG 2010, draught at Ma Che Siete Venuti A Fà, Rome, 9.8% ABV, 7-5-8-4-14=38
Hazy red-amber color; generous head. Very nice dry smoke aroma. Strong body, caramel flavor, with a good share of residual sugars; smoke, strong and sweet; I find that the bitterness is just too high and the alcohol perception too. Good beer, but somehow too much.

Koelschtrinker (19423) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Süßlich hopfiger Antrunk mit deutlichem Rauchcharackter, der aber noch nicht dem süßen Hopfen gleichsteht und erst mit der Zeit immer weiter hervorkommt. Dabei spielt der Hopfen sowie die mitgebrachte Bitterkeit eine große Rolle, süßlich, perfekt abgestimmt. Zum Ende sehr viel rauchiger, trotz des sehr starken Aromas wirkt das Bier nie übertrieben, da eine deutliche Süße für Ausgleich sorgt. Im späten Nachgeschmack röstig. /14/12/14//14

harrisoni (17996) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
On tap at GBBF 2009. Everyone had gone on about how good this was. Smokey aroma. Oddly a touch of TCP, but not in a bad way. Tasty smokey TCP in flavour too. Not too sweet for a bock, some biscuit in the malt even. Finish has as smokey sting. Yep, this is pretty good.

TBone (17047) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2009
[email protected] 2009. "Affumikator"? Deep amber color, steady beige creamy head. Strong aroma of smoke. Very sweet malty, some alcohol and then loads of smokey ham. Lingering sweet smokeyness in the aftertaste. A bit too sweet, but otherwise interesting smoked beer.

Oakes (16952) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2009
Hazy amber-brown. Big smoke nose with lots of chewy malts. Rich smoke - more campfire char than most rauchbiers. Rich, long, chewy malt and smoke, with light caramel. The smoke lingers on your tongue for hours. Complex layers unveil themselves amidst an intimidating smoke character. Damn!
