kraddel (9441) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2018
Pours unclear, darker blonde. Barely any foam. Looks very undercarbonated. Smell is not overly intense, but 100% consistant of smoked meat. Taste is full-on smoked, very fleshy indeed. Too smokey for me. I am convinced Smoke is growing on me -I don't start to feel sick when I drink it- but it's still far from my favorite taste. I can tell though, that this is a balanced brew, for those who love smokeds. Medium body and low carbo.

Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Langnes. Mørk ferskenfarget. Uklar. Høyt tett skum som daler veldig sakte. Grei røykaroma. Smaken lettrøkt svinekam. Balansert. God tørr ettersmak.

maekchu (4184) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 30, 2018
Bottle from Sugaya. Floral and smoky aroma, lightly piscine, with some seaweed. Hazy light orange-amber color, nearly flat. Fairly smoky from the outset, with caramel, toffee, a slightly phenolic note,. Ripe stone fruit throughout, but clear and present hopping from mid palate through to the finish. Medium body. Fairly full-flavored stuff. Smoke is moderate and balances with other elements.

Bottled on November 13, 2017. As a blind tasting.
Cloudy to murky golden color, off-white head. Hoppy, alcohol, higher alcohols or solvents, harsh, grapefruit, zest scent. Fruity, citrus, alcohol taste. Medium mouthfeel though with some cloying yeast feeling to it, high bitterness.

Butelka 0,33l. Aromat chmielowy, do tego delikatne nuty wędzone. W smaku więcej wędzonki. Nieco zalegająca goryczka.

Muggus69 (2831) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2017
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 04.11.17 Properly hazy, almost orange-straw body, creamy head holds. Good whiff of smoke on the nose - bacony, camp fire, orange rind sort of hop character there, sort of a rich pale caramel malt note in the works. Thick palate, chewy, full, touch of warmth, lowish carbonation. BOOM stacks of smoke on the body - meaty, salami/small goods, charcoal, orange & mango hop character is strangely complimentary, low sort of bitterness, sort of spicy on the finish, pepper, smoke lingers for a long time! Woah, yeah, full on! Really different, kind of works, kind of doesn't, never dull!
