Erzengel (8495) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2013
Ich sage "Vielen Dank an Kappeldav für dieses Bier"!
Der Geruch ist ganz leicht rauchmalzig. Der Antrunk ist ziemlich flach mit leichter, rauchiger Note. Im Hauptteil wird das Bier etwas vollmundiger und einen ganz kleinen Tick süßlicher. Dazu mischt sich eine sehr sehr dezente Rauchmalznote zusammen mit einer angenehmen Röstmalzigkeit. Der Nachgeschmack ist eine angenehme Komposition aus angenehmer Herbe und leichten Rauchtönen, die mir aber zu sehr im Untergrund bleiben. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine angenehme, aber mir etwas zu flache Note aus Rauch, Malz und angenehmer Herbe.
--> Mir ist es insgesamt zu "flach auf der Brust". Die Aromen könnten allesamt etwas stärker ausgeprägt sein. Aber für ein sächsisches Rauchbier doch schon ganz lecker!
Test vom 11.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,11,10,12,10 - 10,45

Koelschtrinker (19707) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 3, 2011
Malzig-wässriger Antrunk in dem die Rauchigkeit nur einen kleinen Anteil hat. Auch im Mittelteil wird das Raucharoma kaum stärker, hintergründig ist das Bier süß, insgesamt eher wässrig. Im Abgang etwas malziger, andeutungsweise herb. Ein wirklich sehr schwaches Rauchbier! Vielen Dank an kappldav123 für das Bier! Test vom 29.4.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,9,7,11,7

ogivlado (7699) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 6, 2011
Bottled 330ml. -trade with kappldav123 (thanks David!)
Darker amber coloured, small white head that went away fast, dusty smokey and caramel nose. Slight roasted malt, caramel and some smoke with flowery and mild spicy notes. A bit thin but never mind, it’s average German smoked beer.

Marko (5528) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle that ogivlado got in a trade, with kappldav I guess and shared with me (thanks and thanks!). Poured a cola-like brown/black/red body with an off white head. Light smokey nose, some light soy sauce, roast, rosehip and caramel. Dryish. Light background smoke in the taste, rosehip vs. caramel mix, interesting. Nice maltiness, freshm not too hoppy. Some bacon. A very good light smoked.

Embrouille (2848) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 11, 2010
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of kappldav123. It pours a clear nut brown beer with a small, bubbly, quick diminishing light beige head. Wort, gone-off peanuts, petrol, wormwood and a huge amount of patato and stuffy sitting room in the nose where some lovely chocolate, luscious malt, smoke and salty crackers manage to sneak in. Smells a bit like a garage. A lot of patato, marzipan and wormwood in the taste. Strange. Spicy, medium bodied and malt accented. Subtle carboantion. Low bitterness. Not much lacework. Remarkably spicy on the swallow. (Reminiscence of wormwood). Patato present again in the finish which is spicy, chocolatey and rather interesting with plenty of character. Residual sugars detectable. Good balance throughout. Different. Thanks a lot kappldav123!

omhper (24774) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2009
Bottled. Clear mahoganycolour, brief head. Mild beechwood smoke mixes with ripe strawberries. Mid-dry with light body and clean mouthfeel. A mild pleasant smokiness prevails, not rivalled by much hops nor bitterness. Not much depth, but the smoke flavour is really pleasant.

bierkoning (13126) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle from Kappldav123, thanks! Brown color. Smoked cheese, sausage and beechwood in the aroma. Malty smoked sausage flavor with hints of mango and pear. Lovely!

Clear light to medium brown color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, sugar, smoke - bacon smoke. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20090621]

oh6gdx (26447) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 21, 2009
[email protected] Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is smoked wood, some quite baconlike notes as well. Flavour is tar and smoke along with some caramel as well. A bit to the sweeter side of the smoked Germans.
