[on tap at EBF 2008]
Banana and clove aroma with some sweet malt and quite coriandery. Very dark yellow and foggy, with a nice, white ring. Refreshing banana flavour with plenty of sweet malt. Gentle with a coriander note. Clean and with a good sweet and dry balance. Lasting coriander flavour. larsniclas (7068) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2008
Sampled at EBF08.
Deep amber, almost no head.
Lightly smoked with notes of some sausage.
Fresh palate with a medium bitterness. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2008
EBF2008. The color is warm golden and the head is huge and creamy. The aroma has notes of smoke, salami and smoked eel. The flavour has sweetness and notes of salami and smoked eel. It’s OK, but I prefer a smoked beer to be less sweet. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2008
Draught at EBF. Clear dark amber - white head. Nice clean aroma/taste and body. Lovely smoked, caramel, berries, fruity, maber malts. Nice. Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 22, 2008
On tap at EBF 2008, Copenhagen. "Dust & must" aroma. Good dark amber looks - very clear. Very lively at first (the first glass the barman poured was nothing but foam!) but then settles down. Has the expected smoked beer flavour (it has 40% Bamberg rauch malt after all!) but not as good as the authentic stuff from Schlenkerla I’m afraid.
larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2008
Small white head quickly disappears. Amber body. Smoky apple and caramel aroma. Dry-sweet fruity smoky apple taste with caramelly charcoal notes. Mild, balanced, harmonic. Dry dusty grainy smoky aftertaste. Body is thin and delicate. Very nice! (0.1l taster draft at EBF ’08.) Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2008
Draught at Teerenpeli, Lahti. Clear amber colour with a small head. Smoked malt aroma. The flavour is also smoky and malty with some sweetness. Light to medium bodied, not much aftertaste. The beer was not bad, a bit thin but drinkable. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2008
Draught, 5.0% at EBF08. Weak smoke aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Big stable creamy tan head. Good smoked flavour, smoky and nice. Some burnt wood, hint of ham. yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2008
From tap. Pours clear and golden orange with a creamy white head. Aroma is smoked and slight plastic like aroma. Smoked and towards meady malt base flavour with a mild acidic note. Smoked and dry into the far finish. Good one. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2008
