Bottle, one month before bbd. Wow, this is a beauty! Pours mahogany, with a creamy, off white head. Aroma is smoked malts, with bread, bonfire and wooden barrels, as well as toffee, leather and heather. Medium body, with soft to average carbonation. Flavour is malts with bread, caramel and leather, as well as wooden barrels, bonfire and notes of smoke. Lingering smoked malts in the finish. Despite the massive smoke and malts, this beer is incredibly balanced and smooth. A quaffable sipper, if there ever was one. herrklemann (386) - Graz, AUSTRIA - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle, many thanks to SinH4! Dark red/brown amber, with a small beige head. Country ham, butterscotch, herbal, hints of dark soy sauce, dank, grassy. Medium sweetness builds up slowly, fades into herbal light bitterness with a dash of umami. Slick medium body, with pearly carbonation. Easily drinkable, nice. allmyvinyl (10844) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2017

European Beer Swap Tasting #2 szynka i karmel w aromacie. W smaku wyraźnie wędzone w mięsną, szynkową stronę. Nieco karmelu. Pijalne. Porządna rzecz.

Aroma of dry smoked ham with hints of maltiness, bit of molasses. Dark mahone in the glass with minimal beige head. Flavor of smoked ham, some notes of herbal hoppiness. Beer is well balanced, however - watery. Poor. biir (1486) - Berlin, - APR 18, 2017
Tap at the brewery - dark mahagoni color, clear, white head. taste is bacon, smoke, molasses, dark wood, dark malts. Heavy body, but refreshing and crisp. Quite sweet, but very well balanced! VsXsV (4523) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 19, 2017

Pours hazy copper with nice off white-light tan head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Stong smoked nose. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is smoky, malty sweet. Good.
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours clear brown with a thin foam. Aroma is a warm fire, some smoke, and quite some bacon too. Body is medium, with a little but crisp carbonation. Umami, oily, thick. Nice.
