UPDATED: OCT 26, 2014 9/28/2014 Bottle at home (batch LS14111, best before 11 2013). Pours very dark brown to black with a fizzle, but no head. Aroma is smokey, roasted malts, chocolate, hint of cigar, peaty. Taste is sweet, chocolate, roasted malts, smokey, cigar, peaty, hint of bitter with lots of chocolate and cigar in the aftertaste. Very nice. 10/26/2014. Bottle at home (33 cl, batch LS5014, best before 03 2016). Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, less of the cigar and smokey/peatiness, however. Bit thinner, but still lots of chocolate and tobacco, roasted malts. Nice, but definitely better when aged. 8/4/7/4/15.

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from Mother Kelly’s. Unusual to have tobacco leaf in a porter. Roasted & cigar leaf aroma, slight spiciness on the palate, but finishes a little thinner than expected. Some more roast in the flavour would have been good.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Tobacco beer with quickly dissolving, loose, off-white head and near black colour with yellowish brown hue. Smoky aroma, toasted, peaty single malt, raisins, pipe tobacco, sage, chocolate, leather; bitter chocolate and faintly sweetish caramel malts in the mouth, dry and spicy, explicitly smoky like a peaty whisky, hint of hot spiciness in the finish. Weird but very tasteful.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Flaske 750ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Delt med djoeye på Nerstranda 16 Aug 14. Svart. Så vidt gjennomskinnelig. Høyt litt farget luftig skum som varer. Aroma av røstet malt & lakris. Smaken er sjokolade & kaffe. Skjemmes av for mye kullsyre som ødelegger litt av den gode smaken.

RW80 (1324) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2014
75cl bottle Appearance:Black with big beige head. Good retention. Head will leave some light lacing. Aroma: Roasted malts, herbal tones, nuts Taste: First caramel followed by some smoke cold coffee with a light sournessand and the more roasted malts and herbal notes and a hint of cardboard in the finish Light body, soft carbonation. The nice thing is the super easy drinkability while it has some nice complexity. Interresting at least.
