2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ok beer, smokyness comes through nicely. Minimal head, foam is sticky though. Taste is sweet with a lingering sweet and bittery finish. Quite a lot of carbonation, too much in my opinion. Also misses complexity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black, big foamy head, some yeast floating around.
Smell is crisp and metallic. Coffee, liquorice and chocolate, dominated by smoke and bacon. Some leather. Fresh cheese.
Taste is bitter sweet with a nice fizz and creamy mouthfeel. Nice smooth finish. Nicely balanced. Full oily taste, but smooth and easy to drink.

Medium slightly viscous black beer with decent balanced amount of smoke. Not bad.

33 cl bottle @ Bierlokaal de Koffer
Aroma has sweet malty tones, some mild smokiness and leather shoes. Flavour has ash, some fruity tones with hops, licorice and very mild smoky tones. Aftertaste is unpleasantly milky after some sips. A bit straightforward and simple - but then again has nothing offensive and is easy to drink.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark black with huge structural tan head. Strong aroma of smoke even through the thick head. Round, fully smokey flavor with a lot of bitterness and tanins -- dries out the mouth. Highly carbonated. A beer to make you happy.

On tap at Proeflokaal Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Clear cola body, big crème brûlée head, nice retention and lacing. Aroma of smoked prunes, herbs, wood, caramel and yeast. Taste of smoked malts, blackberries, a touch of dark chocolate infused with herbs. Good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Dark brown colour with fantastic ruby red glimmer and absurdely huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Woody, smoky aroma, hints of ashes, resin, glue, a herbal touch, hints of dark berries. Taste smoky, slightly roasty dark malty, woody, hints of resin and glue. Sadly some of the more fleshy smoke notes are rather ephemeral and give way to a slightly displeasing resinous glue note; which, once sniffed, it is hardly possible to get rid of.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra Tiel.
Clear dark brown with a small beige head. Malty and smokey aroma with a hint of mint?, i wonder where that came from. Taste is sweet and has also some smoke. body is medium, finish is long and smokey. Although reasonably smokey the smoke is balanced really nice with the malt base. A very nice beer.
