Alengrin (1296) - 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.

djoeye (1380) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Tower-of-Pisa foam, tan, small bubbles. Black body with some clear mahogany tones. Aroma; oily roasted malts, tannic acid, power spices, chocolate, cocoa. Taste; roasted malts, cocoa, prunes, chocolate, mocca coffee, fruits, hints of peaches. Palate; too powerful carbonation. Slightly dry. Cocoa-mealy finish, chocolate, nice fading end. Session@Finn’sPlace.

Finn (4157) - 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 (582) - 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.

Flaska från Domus Birrae, Rom. Svart öl med givmilt beigt skum. Dofter av choklad, aska, rök och kaffe. Smakinslag av choklad, lakrits, rök, kaffe och rostad malt. Torr munkänsla. Medelstor kropp. En trevlig porter.

oliodnb (277) - ITALY - JUN 17, 2014
75cl bottle. Pours black with a fine, creamy beige head. Very light smell of roasted malts and caramel. Taste is roasted malts with a cola-like sweetness. Very easy to drink without being watery, light carbonation. Sweet aftertaste. Can’t feel the tobacco at all, absolutely not what I was expecting.

jinroh (339) - ESTONIA - JUN 8, 2014
Pours dark, nice head that finally falls. Aroma is smokey and has a lot of roast. Also some caramel and something sweet. Taste has some carmel at first, smoke disappears and roast flavours remain. Not too frightening and a nice one as a simple dark brew. Goes well together with pizza.

Bottle. Black body with a beige head. Aroma of burned malt, smoke, licorice and vinegar. Taste of Fresh roasted coffee, tobacco, chocolate, brown sugar. Dry palate with a smoked tobacco-like aftertaste. Strange but good.
