CyborgX (107) - 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

Botella 33 cl en Cimmeria 16..06.. 2017. (r16). Color ámbar tostado turbio con poca espuma blanca. Sabores dominantes ahumados algo tostados y dulces. Ligeros caramelos y tofes. Cuerpo ligero a medio algo espumoso y fino. Toques ahumados. Buena.

Cristobal37 (1126) - 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.

Marko (5640) - 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 (91) - 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!

Ritzn (1314) - GERMANY - MAY 9, 2017
Clear amber with little white head. Aroma is some smoked malt, fruits (orange, mango) sweet sugar. Taste is sweet fruity malty with slight saltyness and average bitterness. Full bodied, creamy on the tongue. Nice.

3.8
Wolfbass (1158) - Firenze, ITALY - MAY 7, 2017
Io l’ho trovata davvero strepitosa, dove al naso emerge la parte legnosa affumicata, mentre in bocca ha un equilibrio e una delicatezza fantastiche. Ci vorrebbe un fusto!!!!

3.6
Beerdedone (3401) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a thin creamy off-white head. Aroma of smoked meats, smoked malts and caramel. Flavor was mildly smoky and slightly bitter with smoked malts, caramel, peat, and smoked meats.
