Impression: The first time I had this, I stopped by the somewhat upscale restaurant during off hours and was only there to try this one beer. The server didn’t seem too happy about my being there but I found the beer very good nonetheless though not good enough to return for about ten years!  I was there recently for aa excellent meal and had this beer along with a few others in their portfolio.  All were uniformly quite good and the meal was excellent so we’ll head back a lot sooner next time.  Stöffla is a great introduction to smoked beer, as the smokiness is in the background and the finish remains more like a traditional beer with regard to bitterness.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
