wlajwl (6815) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 25, 2017
Aroma is wood smoke and sweet dark fruit. The flavor is smoked malts, mild BBQ, fruit/dark fruit, and a sweet/slightly dry finish.

kaserov (756) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 19, 2017
Color ámbar, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación alta. Textura acuosa y ligeramente efervescente. Aroma a humo, madera, a fruta seca (muy ligera). Sabor maltoso, casi dulce de entrada, a caramelo, terroso. Final donde se va colando el ahumado, que se va haciendo más intenso en regusto. Postgusto ahumado largo. Bien.

ciocanelu (2539) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 2, 2017
Almost clear amber color with just a bit of beige foam. Aroma has the specific german rauchmalt savory notes with some sweet, sticky syrup notes and dried fruits. Taste is not as intense as expected from the aroma. It’s malty, slightly sweet at first but more earthy and bitter towards the finish with lingering smoked malt notes. Medium body, almost flat. The mouthfeel is the worst part about this beer making it quite difficult to drink.

nearbeer (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 29, 2017
33 cl. bottle bb 31 MRT 2017. Big smoked meat and molasses aroma jumps right out. Pour is lightly hazy and has lots of activity that supports a big foamy head. Tastes of smoked meat, bread and a touch of caramel apple. Some toasted walnut that almost becomes chocolate in the aftertaste. Medium body has the desired onslaught of smoke with the solid foundation of malty support required underneath. The only detracting quality of this brew is the high level of fizz that explodes in the mouth at times.

CyborgX (109) - THAILAND - JUN 22, 2017
Bottle - It pours a dissapointing cloudy dark amber with virtually no carbonation and no head, but the aroma is strong and smokey, giving hope of a real great beer... Sadly the taste is uninspring and I was left with the feeling of drinking flat beer and a lasting taste of burnt wood in my mouth, and not an interesting wood at that.... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cristobal37 (1143) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 12, 2017
Bronze with light haze and big foamy head. Quite a strong oak wood and smoke aroma. Carbonated heavily. Smokey and sticky mouthfeel. Long smokey aftertaste. Really nice smoked bier even if it seems a little more watery than the Schlenkerla marzen. Tasty and enjoyable.

3.6
Marko (5718) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 7, 2017
Thanks Matija (Trolleo)! Hazy dark amber, tiny head. Intensive pancetta aroma. Mild sweetish smoked ham taste. Simple but nice, exactly as it should be.

3.7
dcmchew (104) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - MAY 21, 2017
Pours dark orange, small bubbly head, low retention. Nose: smoked cheese, dried tree bark, pastrami, sweet malt, faint orchard fruit. The taste is cleaner, dialing down the smokey notes. Malty, grainy front, with some dried apple peel and soft smoked apricot. Some rather soft bacon-like smokiness shows up, a lot more earthy spiciness and some spicy hop. Still, the taste lacks intensity. Aftertaste is pretty simple, with a lagery zestiness and some smoked spicy grain. Light body, surprisingly low carbonation. A light beer that’s not light on the smokiness. So tread lightly!
