koshack (1556) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Ciemno bursztynowe, klarowne. Piana bezowa, drobna, opada ze śladami na szkle. W aromacie wyraźnie wędzone, nuty dębowe. Pod nimi gorzki karmel. W smaku wędzonka, ale mocno wymieszana ze słodkimi akcentami. Bardzo przyjemnie smakuje. Rzeczywiście jest przyjemna nuta jałowca. Sporo ciała, lekko zakleja usta. Nie jest mocno wysycone, przyjemnie się pije. Bardzo fajne piwo.

GoddamnNoise (88) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2016
33 cl. bottle @ Home. Aroma: intense and nice aromas of smoked cereals. Appearance: deep amber-copper color with above average head thickness. Off-white foam with under average retention. Clear beer. Medium Brussels’ lacing. Very good appearance. Taste: medium sweetness, low bitterness, low sourness. Some salty overtones. Nice flavors of smoked cereals. The smoked flavor hides all the other flavors, but it’s a very nice smoked flavor reminding of barbecue, smoked salmon, smoked cheeses like the great italian scamorza cheese, smoked pork, bacon, etc. Palate: medium body, oily texture, low carbonation, very long bittersweet finish of smoked cereals. Overall: nice and different beer. Very good appearance, and intense aromas and flavors of smoked cereals. Very different but very good and drinkable. I’m very surprised by this beer. I’ll drink it again for sure. One of the best smoked beers i’ve ever tasted. Really good stuff here.

Butelka 330ml. Kolor bursztynowy, mętnawy od drobinek osadu, piana średnia ale ujdzie. Aromat śliwki wędzonej dominuje nad wszystkim innym, jak w kompocie wigilijnym, smak torfowy z ziołami i wędzonka , wędzonka, wędzonka. Chyba najlepsze red rye jaki spożyłem, bardzo dobre piwo.

sebwaw (77) - POLAND - DEC 16, 2016
Pours deep copper, clear, almost no head, only very tiny layer. Rather strong aroma of smoked cheese, some maltiness and caramel, also some dried plums. Very delicate taste, rather sweet and malty, some bitterness, surprisingly almost no smoke in taste. LIght body, short finish. Could easily serve as an entrance to smoked beers, quite drinkable, but I expected more overall.

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
Nice smoke over chocolate and spiciness. Sticky mouthfeel. Very tasty

15/20 probably the nicest smoked beer I’ve ever had. Smoked but not overpowering and beer tastes good. Wanted another after I finished the bottle.

bartlebier (3633) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2016
33cl bb June 17, many thanks idiosynkrasie for this tasty approximation of a recently missing style. - Bref: smoked red rye ale adds boughy, fresh beechwood smoke to berry-like hops. Not sure how this qualifies as a sahti, nor does it seem intended to be by the brewer? Somehow a crosscut of Schlenkerla Märzen, Uerige Alt and a light ESB: subtle, Alt-dry use of juniper that works well with the smoke and hops. Smooth, consummate composition made for a Scottish session it seems...
