beeriodic (61) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2005
opaque black/brown, very carbonated. Nice smoke aroma. A sweetish, smoky flavor on the tongue that finishes a bit dryer. The mouthfeel is too thin and not enough "chewiness" or apparent alcohol. Still, it’s nice to find a domestic smoke beer, and this one’s not bad.

dambor (500) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
Pours black with medium head disappearing fast. Aroma: nice not too dominating smoke aroma (more of a wood smoke than bacon) coupled with chocolate. Taste: here the chocolate dominates, followed by woody smoke. The taste is a bit more watery, but this makes the brew nicely drinkable. Not the smoked beer of the year, but I like it.

jaghana (5607) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 19, 2016
Bottle 355ml, a dark beer with medium head. Nose is on caramel, dark chocolate and smoked notes. Aroma is on dark chocolate and smoked notes, good creamy basis, bit watery but pleasant and well balanced, smooth and rich.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2016
- tiefschwarze Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - angenehm malzige Raucharomen mit einem leichten Toffee-Hintergrund - die Carbonisierung ist für diesen Biertyp definitiv zu moussierend - der Antrunk hält zuerst überzeugend, was die Aromen versprechen - ein angenehm malzige Rauchigkeit umschmeichelt sofort den Gaumen - leider verliert sich dies im weiteren Verlauf relativ schnell - der Körper ist einfach etwas zu schlank bzw. die Kohlensäure prickelt zu sehr auf der Zunge - der Abgang verliert sich dann in einer enttäuschenden Wässrigkeit Fazit: Guter Anfang, wässriges Ende

ciocanelu (1613) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 14, 2016
Dark brown color with brown head that fizzes away really fast. Aroma has smoked malt, charred wood, sweet toasted malts and some brown sugar. Taste starts slightly sweet and malty with some brown sugar and caramel and finishes slightly more roasty and more balanced but overall it’s still on the sweet side. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it’s a legit smoked porter but it’s not special in any way.

hrabren (985) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 10, 2016
Black, tiny off-white head, lacing. Heavily smoked, smoked cheese aroma. Smoke completely overwhelming the flavors, sweetish, smoked salmon. Full body, to much smoke, finish resembling ash aroma. Wasn’t impressed.

AbbeyRoade (537) - Missouri, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Excellent brew from O’Fallon. Great to sip on. Nice thick body, full natural smoke flavor that is fresh from the grill. No blocking coffee notes that are usually so overwhelmingly prevalent in porters/stouts. Slight balancing bitterness.

Sissio (1361) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle @ Pazzeria Last beer of the night A good smoke aroma that is really less present in taste. Well balanced spicy, lightly smoked and bitter

12 oz bottle. This was very nice and a unique experience that bears repeating. Don’t miss it!

bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2016
12oz from Bierothek Bamberg, no discernible bb date, shared in Schöneberg. - Drabby mahogani pour, on the watery stout side of porter. Unanticipated Schlenkerla bacon in aroma, mingled with vanilla bourbon, old bonfire, thaw water. Diluted milk chocolate and filter coffee texture and flavours in taste water down the evaporated molasses and beechwood smoke towards a faint, starchy finish. Expected a tad more going by the accolades and price - particularly punching power and body for the abv.

Beerhunter111 (17645) - P´Castle, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2016
12 fl.oz bottle. Pours very dark orange brown colour with a huge good lasting tan head. Aroma of smoked dark roasted malt, some sweet malt and bacon. Taste of sweet roasted malt, bacon, smoke, some coffee and chocolate in the background.
