fonefan (45196) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2006
Draft @ the Spezial Brewery in Bamberg. Poured very dark copper, almost black with a big thick head. Huge nose of smoked malts with a lot of fruit aromas. Flaver is powerful and the mouthfeel is rich.

yespr (41423) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2009
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber to hazzlenut brown with a dense, creamy and orange to tan head. Mild leathery smoked initial aroma. Slight tarish following this. Mild and sweet caramel malt base with a light leathery smoked note on top. Smooth smoked from back of the nose too. Lasting mild smoked impression into the far finish.

Ungstrup (35103) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
Draft. A deep red beer with a collapsing light orange head. The aroma is sweet mlaty with light notes of smoke and caramel. The flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, but also evident notes of smoke, which leaves the end a tad dry.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2006
(On tap) Beautiful, clear orangey brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and a whiff of smoke. Medium body with roasted malt and some burned caramel. Enticing but not exaggerated smoke flavour - just to rouse your palate. Very subdued bitterness. 081106

omhper (23940) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2002
Dark chestnut brown. Malty with balanced smokeyness. I miss a bit depth, and I don’t find it very complex.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2010 2010-05-19, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 7-5-7-3-15=37
Red-amber color, dark; generous creamy head. Nice smoke aroma, wood, light dark caramel, bread, very light smoked sausages (it’s a sourish declination of smokeyness). The body strength is average, thus below the expected for a Märzen, with good dark caramel flavor, delicate smoke touch, almost no sugars; correct bitterness; the final also reminds some burnt paper. Good, balanced, well brewed, but without thrills.

2010-05-10, bottle, 6-4-7-4-14=35
Beautiful mahogany color with red and amber shades; minimal head. Aroma of smoke, malt; mild. Good caramel flavor; the body is not very strong, the mouthfeel a bit dry, not much Märzen overall, apart from a light residual sweetness in the middle; there is a pleasant, delicate smoke note. Correct bitterness; the final shows some dark caramel, and dryness. Well balanced, but it doesn’t reach the power of the Aecht Schlenkerla.

2004-07-30, bottle, 5-3-6-3-11=28
Dark amber color. Light smokey aroma. Some sweetness, malt, and smokey, a bit dry at the end, not convincing. Ordinary Rauchbier.
