500 ml bottle courtesy of Jacob. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a small khaki head that has good retention. The aroma features smokehouse meats and an impression of of smoldering embers. The taste features more smoked goodness and begs comparison to the Schlenkerla brews. The palate is on the lighter side, but effective, and the carbonation is soft. Finishes long and dry with lingering smoke and ash. Overall: This is a great smoked beer. skaman (10) - USA - SEP 15, 2012
This is my favorourite in danish rauchbier. In my opinion almost comparable to the Aecht Schlenkla... Palme (4856) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2012
On tap @ Naboen. This is a deep dark ruby one with a small beige head. It smells, oh yeah, smoky! Beefy smoky with rocks and malts. Quite nice, but perhaps a bit one dimensional. It’s really comfortably average carbonated and it has a nice oily texture. Flavors also are heavily smoky. Totally dominating, but not to much. Some dry licorice, bacon and more of that sigary-smoky power. I’m not a smoked-beer guy normally, but I quite enjoyed this one. 09.06.2012 Garlic_of_Doom (664) - SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle from Høkeren.
Pours red-brown with a one finger brown head.
Smoked pig and sasuage and malt to the nose.
Reminds me a lot of smoked cheese regarding the taste, nice. Medium bodied, on the low side. Carbonation is low. The downside is the after taste which is not prominent at all, a thing that I’ve found on most smoked beers. laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2012

Aroma is a bit ashy with woody and smoky notes. Flavour is smoky with wood, ash and hints of salt. Reminds me of Norwegian Wood, but this is more messy.
Bottle, courtesy of Mogens (whose RB nick I’ve forgotten, but he’s not really that active anyway...) - cheers man! :-) Pours a dark brown-black body with a medium white head. Aroma is brown malts, smoke, smoked pork, hints of nuts and burnt toast. Taste is smoked pork, bacon, ashes, hints of brown malts and burnt toast again in the finish. Lacks a bit of body, otherwise a really nice smoked ale. SimonRoller (390) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2012
Bottle, pours brown with medium tan head. Aroma is malts, smoked meat, ham and some tar. Taste is ham, malts, tar and roasted malts. Ok beer MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, murky beer with a big, two finger head on top. Aroma of bacon, barbecue, and smoked malts. Flavour returns the smokeyness in a great way, delivering a good smokey dry finish. Overall quite a sweet beer, well balanced to the drinkable side.

Pours a very dark brown color with a brown head. The arom has is so fucking awesome. Smells like smoked bacon. Sadly enough the taste itself is not as sensational as the smell is. Nothing bad though. Hints of smoked barrel and a little bit of charcoal gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012
From bottle at Ølfestival 2012.
Dark brown, almost black with a small head. Aroma of smoke, salt, wood, dark berries and roasted malt. The taste was not heavy but easy to drink. Not extremely smoky but balanced.
