Draft at Farmers’ Cabinet.
Pitch black and completely opaque with a one finger light beige head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Minimal lacing.
Huge smokey aroma with a strong rauch/smoked beer character. Smells like a complete smoke bomb with lots of butane, ashtray, campfire, BBQ and smoked bacon along with subtle spice and dark roasted malt. Really smokey but there’s also some burnt toast, dark chocolate, robust coffee and toffee in the nose.
Medium bodies with tight carbonation and an intense smoke flavor that lingers over the sweeter notes into a bone dry finish. Dry and slightly ashy with lots of smoke, charcoal and smoked meat. Although it’s dominated by the smoke character, it isn’t one dimensional with sweetness from booze and complex malt profile. Hints of robust coffee bean, dark chocolate, toast and oatmeal. Really nice smoke beer that’s intense while maintaining delicate, albeit subtle balance. GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 13, 2012
Tap at the brewery in Va. Thanks to the brewers. Pours deep black, muddy, with a thick, stout head. Nose is rich bamberg smoked malt. Beautiful salty bacon and shirt ribs. Taste is quite tangy, mildly tart with muted lactic sourness. Palate is rich and oily with refreshing lactic tartness. Excellent. Easy 4.0+

- dark beer almost black under a little persistent beige foam; a well-present smokiness with notes of bacon; full-bodied and with a solid carbonation; very tasty; decently bitter and with a long smokey finish with hints of bacon, licorice and black cherries - complex and subtle
Tap. Pours opaque with a medium, frothy tan head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is smoke, charcoal and wood with earthy hops and dark malts. Flavor is malt dominant with heavy smoke, faint fruity esters and a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

Tap @ CBC. Black pour with a rim off white head. Aroma has lots of smoke, campfire, chocolate, raisins, molasses, a hint of cranberries and estery sweetness. Taste is farmhouse yeast notes, smoke, chocolate and a hint if coffee roast. Some roasty tartness and a hint of leather and brett and a bit banana esters. Very unique. Tasty stuff.

Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of smoke and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and smoke as well as a light note of berries, leading to a dry finish. Plovmand (8595) - Grindsted, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2012
On tap at CBC. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma is light smoke, fruit and caramel. The flavour is light roasted malt, caramel, smoke, bacon and fruit. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Tap. Boilermaker. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one inch foamy beige head. The nose is nicely smoky with a nice campfire quality. Some fairly heavy sweet malt below with caramel and burnt toffee. The flavor is pretty smoky, but not as intense as I thought it would be, it seems to be tempered a bit by the heavy sweet maltiness. Finishes with equal amounts of smoke and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky and thick with light fizzy carbonation. Pretty good, but would prefer the body and alcohol to be dialed down a bit.
