kappldav123 (6022) - GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle looks simle but good. Beer in the glass brownish, small head. Malty-smokey aroma. Starts malty and spicy, mild smokey notes, hints of caramel. Finish less smokey, a bit grasy. Not bad!

Moravius (1202) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 Flasche vom Landbierparadies-Laden, Nrnberg. - Schnes Rotbraun. Milder, karamelser, nur leicht rstmalziger Antrunk. Die Rauchmalznote ist deutlich, aber nicht sehr krftig. Im Abgang pfeffriger Hopfen, aber eher verhalten. Schwacher Nachtrunk. Etwas dnner Krper, sehr sffig. - Mildes, leicht trinkbares Dunkles, das durch die Rauchmalznote zwar an Interesse gewinnt, aber vorwiegend malzbetont und s bleibt. Knnte eine Portion mehr Hopfen vertragen.

Erzengel (8242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2013
Der Antrunk ist mild-weich, die Rauchmalznote kommt aber zum Hauptteil kommend recht schnell hervor. Dabei angenehm weich und gut mit dem malzigen Charakter des Bieres harmonierend. Der Nachgeschmack ist von einer leichten Rstmalznote geprgt, feinherb abgestimmt, ber der eine angenehm leichte Rauchnote schwebt. --> Sehr leckeres, dezent-rauchiges Dunkel

Shaney (2423) - Kln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2013
Kupferbraunes Mrzen mit einer Rauchmalznote, die den leicht rstigen Malzgeschmack gekonnt abrundet. Wunderbar sffig und ausgewogen. Delikat!

Ernest (7520) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, apricot), with notes of smoked meat, DMS (cabbage!), smoke/ash. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. While the first whiff had some promise, it didnt take long for the cabbagey odor to appear. Fairly dirty aftertaste as well. A dumper.

Kita (2024) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 29, 2012
On tap, 0.25l. Hazy amber brown color with thin and tan-like head. Lightly smoked malt aroma and notes of grassy hops. Tastes gently smoked with light bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Its not Schlenkerla, but still fairly pleasant...

3fourths (9296) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2012
draft at Kraus in Hirschaid
lightly hazed golden amber body with a small white head. simple sweet grain / corn in the nose, similar flavor but with touches of DMS. tart and starchy flavor, low hop presence, doughy yeast, seems stale, lifeless and simple, with an oily and very thin texture. the smoke is nearly impossible to find; I guess it comes across as some sort of cigarette ask and stale, dried pork, but I wouldnt even guess there *was* smoked malt in here if I wasnt told beforehand. a simple beer in poor shape, uncared-for by the people who brought it into the world.
