deep dark colour, huge, creamy and long lasting brown head; well balanced aroma of smoke and roasted malt,with some coffee and maybe chocolate;taste is less complex for me: smoked and roasted malt; would be much better if its taste was less one-dimensional

Solid black with a foamy lacy, sticky, tan, lasting head. Beautiful. Smells of raisins, vanilla, smoked malt, chocolate and sweet malt. Medium oily body. Dry. Tastes of a nice Mild with roast and raisins but with a clear smokey burnt quality on the light bitter finish. Super drinkable and brings me back for more.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: nice smoked notes, dark malts and chocolate
Appearance: black color and huge lasting beige head -- amazing view.
Taste: smoked notes are dominated by roasted dark malts some coffee substitute and chocolate notes, nice medium bitterness, ashy, quite dry.
Palate: full body, high carbonation, nice roasted and bitter finish, maybe a little oily.
Overall: Outstanding smoked porter, much better then Alaskan Porter, what is in my view the best reference.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours an opaque black with a creamy and lacing light brown head. Hard roast aroma with a distinct smokiness. Medium body, quite dry with a heavy, burned roastiness that adds a rather malt bitter touch all through to the finish. Smoky notes alright, but not enough to define this as a Smoked here on RB. 180214

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a completely deep black color. There is a very generous and long lasting brown head.
The aroma is not too strong. Slightly dusty, some wood and a bit more roasted smell.
The taste is quite bitter, creamy with slight addition of coffee.
A very nice, strong tasting, filling beer. Great work.
