2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poured a black color porter with a light brown huge foamy head with excellent retention and some retention. Bottle even kept gushing after first glass had been poured. Aroma of light dry roasted malt with light coffee notes. Taste is also dominated by light dry roasted malt with smoked notes almost non-existent. Body is about average with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I must say that this beer was quite a disappointment compared to other beers from the same brewery with the smoked notes almost non-existent. Makes me wonder if bottle was infected or something since it was gushing a bit.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Like a smokey Rasputin. This is a BIG beer. Pours a pitch black-brown with barely any amber head - looks great. Roasty, coffee, woodsy, leather, brown sugar, malty. Decent amount of carbonation (more than I'd expected) with a dry finish. Have to respect an ambitious beer that dares to be this intense.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a huge tan head, black colour. Smokey, malty, sweet aroma, with slight hops coming through. Tastes sweet, smokey, bit bitter. Reminds me of hunting trips and the outdoors. Soft palate, lingering smokey taste. A very hearty beer, would be perfect for a cold winters day.
