dcmchew (52) - 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!

Wolfbass (1155) - 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!!!!

rand (1670) - SWITZERLAND - APR 23, 2017
Bottle 33 cl / Craftgallery - Bern (CH). Muddy and dark orang beer, without foam, just a flower in the middle. Pleasant smoked aroma, bacon, caramel. The taste is above all smoked, a delicate smoked of beech wood. The beer is a little soft and thin, there is fat caramel, biscuit, apricot and bergamotte. Finale dryier with a slight and earthy bitter.
