At the Brewpub. Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is smooth and dry. Mellow smoke. Whisper of lactose, a little citrus before a mellow dry finish. Not bad!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Medium beige head atop black body, nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some pineapple, light wood smoke. Taste is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit, some pineapple, light wood smoke that becomes more pronounced in the swallow. Soft light-medium body, light acidity. I see this as a lightly smoked APA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at brewpub, Vienna, Austria. Poured an opaque black with a one-finger beige head that collapsed quickly. Laced poorly. No carbonation. Aroma of sweet and smokey malt. Tastes like drinking smoke. Smokey caramel followed by a hops bitterness. The smokey caramels are stronger than the hops but overall there is a reasonable balance. Short smokey and hoppy finish. Different; good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
100ml sample at the brewpub
Pours a hazy dark brown with enticing smoked meat and chocolate coupled with tangerine on the nose. First flavour is herbal hops followed by a big punchy citrus spike and the smooth mouthfeel with smoky chocolate, followed by a bitter finish. Its very moreish, recommended.
