From a bottle. Pours thick and black with a thin tan head, interesting aroma that is hard to place, roasted flavours as expected, quite smooth, worth a try.

hawthorne00 (2703) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan head that never quite disappears. Many years ago I smoked Senior Service cigarettes, and yes the deceptively mild fruity tobacco aroma they had (before lighting) is there along with some dark sugars, light roast and plums. Damn, now I want one. Silky texture, quite light bodied. Dark fruits and sugars, a touch of roast, dry moderately bitter finish with some tobacco. Interesting beer.

danielecamo (705) - ITALY - JAN 29, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore nero con schiuma fine e marroncina. Aroma di tostato, tabacco da masticare, caffè. Al palato corpo medio, note dominanti di tostato, torrefatto con un tocco di tabacco e cioccolato. Nel finale si avverte leggermente del lievito che stona con il resto dei sapori.

jmgreenuk (5529) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a clear dark brown with a round bubbly light tan head. The aroma is light roast, light fruit, no tobacco! The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a roasty liqourice, light red berry fruit palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Served cool so it hit the mark in BKK but lacked flavour, especially the advertised ones.

Beersiveknown (3654) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle at home from alesela
chestnut tinged dark brown with fluffy dark beige head collapsing to lacing. Rich, fruity, red apple, smoky, cocoa. Full bodied up front, fruity, quite tannic with a dry herbal earthy finish. Definitely tobacco forward but not 100% sure I’d have picked it out without the prompt. Fairly warming, perhaps needs a bit of extra body for balance but good stuff. Gentle carbonation with an earthy roast barley/coffee finish.

gegwilson (1801) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle from Hippo Beers, Glasgow. Pours black with a big tan head. Nice quite rich chocolate and coffee flavours. Some aniseed too. Just a little on the thin side. Pretty good.

Bozo_skeleton (674) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 30, 2014
Bien noire, petite carbo donnat un petit collet dense de fines bulles. Aromes bien marqué sur les note torrefiées, café, chocolat et autres noix. Un palais assez enveloppant tout en restant assez mince, des saveurs de café emplissent la bouche, finale un peu leger.
