From a 330 ml bottle into a goblet.

APPEARANCE: A gentle pour, leaving 1 cm of sediment-laden liquid in the bottom of the bottle, produced a small, semi-durable, off-white head. Copper in color and moderately hay despite the pour.

Aroma: Sweet and smoked malts; hints of dried fruits, including cherries, wet cardboard, and caramel. Complex with a light smokiness.

Flavor: Medium+ strength, More fruity than smoky; in fact, it's quite lightly smoky in a manner than works well with the complex fruity and yeasty notes. More smoke appears in the aftertaste, along with a light bitterness, Caramel sweetness masks the bitterness until the finish. Changes more than usual with warming, including an increase in smokiness.

Feel: Medium body and carbonation. Very smooth.

OVERALL: well worth trying.

Murky amber color with beige head. Aroma has sweet malt, ripe fruits and a bit of caramel. Taste starts slightly sweet, a bit nutty with a slight smokiness in the background. Medium body and carbonation. Interesting beer overall, not very complex but it's quite tasty.

The color of beer reminiscent of dark gold, amber. It is quite cloudy, with visible flecks at the bottom of Tulipa.
Foam solid, built with fine bubbles, a slightly beige, yellowish. Long pleases the eye and beautifully painted glass wall.
The aroma is a slight hint of smoke focal, slightly smoked but also the smell of raisins, prunes, brown bread.
The taste is crisp, smoked. There's ham, bacon, a slice of bread toasted over the fire, delicate plum acidity.
Hop bitterness at the finish of each sip, delicate, dry and inviting to the next.
Saturation is average, you the corresponding.
Alcohol and here is some alcohol? so completely is not perceptible.
To sum up: beer Bravour is greasy oily texture but not heavy, does not reject the first bottle. I would recommend.

This one is a bit of a gusher. Smokey smell from afar.
Huge head, only managed to get two fingers of actual beer in the glass. Guess we sit and wait now. Sticky foam, lots. Dark amber colour, a bit hazy. Tiny floating bits.
Obvious smoke in the smell, smoked ham, straw, bit of green hay. Some fruitiness also, smoked dry apricots, apple peel, bit of citrus.
Taste of grain, caramel and some fruity acidity (apple, pear, faint cherries) in the front, followed by a yeasty characteristic. Not a lot of smoke in the taste, subtle, but present, a bit of ash in the aftertaste. Some faint barnyard notes, wood, faint pine and flowers. Green finish, bitter and mildly dry.
Medium carbonation and body, soft. Great aftertaste of hops, some funk and faint smoke.
Great balance of fruitiness, smoked malts and that small hint of Brett. Tasty, quite refreshing and a nice gateway beer for people that haven't really acquired a taste for smoked beers (yet).
