Bottle at Male Piwo, Warsaw. The head is wrong, cola fizz that fades fast, but the color is deep. Aroma of smoked toffee, thin palate but solid flavors that could use some more malt sugar development ( the sugars are simple) and more body; but otherwise fun and smartly smoked.

Aromat wędzonki dość wyraźny, choć nie aż tak jak to ma miejsce w przypadku Schlenkerli marcowej. Ale i tak jest bardzo dobrze, spory plus za jedyne tego rodzaju piwo w Polsce. KoNrRiI (1657) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2012 0.5 bottle. Obvious aroma of smoked malts, dark bread scents with slight coffee additions, slightly sweet with caramelly notes. The liquid is of very dark brown color, slightly reddish hue makes it resemble a cola, everything topped with an off-white. medium-sized creamy head of very satysfying retention. Bittersweet, elaborate, smoky taste, creates a sensation of burned wood with a lot of smoke. Body is disappointingly light and texture thin. Carbonation is rather average, quite fizzy around the tongue. Finish is short-lived and rather tasteless, however it leaves a nice smoky sensation in throat and solely rescues the palate. Overall the beer is rather mediocre, starts off quite nicely with smoky, but pleasant and uninsistent, complex aroma and taste, it is greatly spoiled by wateriness and thin texture. Unused potential.

Bottle, Małe Piwo. Medium brown. Rich, woody smoke aroma. Soft smoke, about Spezial Märzen level, and some lightly caramelly, toasty malts. There us a strong woody note to the smoke, relative to either Schlenkerla or Weyermann, and I appreciate that distinctiveness. ElDesmadre (3630) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 22, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown with a creamy yet not really lasting head. Aroma is caramel malt, only lightly smoked, in the woody bonfire way, so no ham and bacon in here. Taste is light and soft, palate is bordering on watery, some plum and chocolate notes in the light bitter finish. Tastes like a smoked beer for newbies, it’s good drinking though I’m rather unimpressed. Not enough smoke in here and no complexity to even that out.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Bottle. Colour is brown (like amber with a smoked quality to it). Taste is obviously smokey, with some hops coming through tho, and a good malty palate. The maltiness mixed with the smoke creates a pleasant taste that makes me think of sourdough rye bread crust. Greatly drinkable, goes down suprisingly fast and with a lot of pleasure. Definitely worth having. Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Deep ruby red. Lingering small head. Smoky, woody aroma with some smoked meats. Flavor is smoky, lightly sweet (caramel), ash, some slight acidic character. Light to medium bitterness. Good and highly drinkable. On tap @ piwoteka narodowa.
