Travlr (23382) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Draft at #2. Cloudy, almost murky, amber color. Aroma of meaty burnt bacon. Taste has just enough smoke, not too much, with a hefty malt background. Not bad.

Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
Ugly dull brown and hazy. Aroma of phenols and light smoke. Phenols dominate the smoke. The malts arent very characterful.

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 7, 2012
Good head, body light brown. The taste is smokey-barley, strange burnt, malty-burnt, but not bad. Overall strange but ok. 11/11/11/11/-/11

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Draft at Black Turtle 2, the one by the river and fortress. Hazy dark amber, lasting white splotchy head. The house band aid character is in the aroma and flavors, making it seem more of a peated malt than wood smoked malt character. But the finish is dry with campfire. Although not a good beer, after the palate ignores the band aid is not terrible.

From tap, on Black turtle bar. Orange haze copper colour,with a small foam. Aromas of slight smokiness. Taste: smoke,roaste malts and slight caramel. Easy going beer, but for sure not the best in its category

From tap. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild smoked and vague butterish. Toasted malty and slight sweet caramelish. Bitter and toasted caramelish finish. Light meaty touch.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 27, 2011
18/08 Draught at the BBF 2011. Was so thrilled to see this here! It poured clear reddish to brown body with small head. Only little peat in aroma reveal its smoked character, while its normally fresh herbal hoppy (they tend to use those same hops in most of their beers). Bacon, smoked meat, charcoal, heavy and robust flavor, slightly rotten, while still interesting. Herbal hoppiness doesnt belong here, though theyre obviously present. Medium bodied with fine peat and smoked meat finish. Slightly acidic here. Nice, though crude and too heavy, but I can appreciate they even dared to make a rauchbier!

Another great surprise at BBF 2011. Cheers to Black Turtle for breaking out something like this (alongside a new Stout and IPA). Strawberry-brown pour, sweet light fruity nose. pale head, no real hint of smoke on nose, just drier malts. Tart up front then smack of wattery smoke. Bit salty, campfire, fumes, charcoal. Smoke meat for sure, maybe this is more Balkan than i thought. Wonderful surprise, and entirely decent.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Rerate:
I was glad to see this on tap at the Gospodar Jovanova location when we went there on the 29th, having liked it at the festival. Ill keep it short. This time there was scarcely any smoke, both in the nose and especially in the taste. Not bad, but it took a huge hit, it was even slightly more pale than it was at the fest. Damn. 6/4/5/3/11

Original rating:
When I saw a banner that hinted at the existence of this, to be debuted at the 2011 BBF, I was giddy with anticipation. Looking lovely in the glass, a clear dark orange-red body and a yellowish head, it initially disappointed me with the nose initially. Nicely fruity, yeasty, strawberry jam and cream - it didnt smell smoked at all. Vary after the "IPA", I saw luttonm try and be excited about something. Maybe it was a good beer despite that? Yeah, it is, but it did taste smoky. The dominant smoked cheese taste is propped up with sweetish general maltiness and maybe some light lemon. Theres a residual ashy bitterness that didnt help drinkability much, but didnt take away from it much as well. Croatia should REALLY take some notes from this newly developing Serbian micro scene. Not necessarily in terms of quality, but in terms of innovation! 7/4/7/3/14
