visionthing (3217) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2015
33cl bottle (as "Smoked Oktobeer") from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours black with a tan head. Fairly smoky aroma with notes of roasted malt, wood, dark fruits and hints of chocolate and caramel. Medium to moderate sweet with nice smoky and malty flavours and a balanced bitterness. Flavourful and tasty - could easily drink more of this.

MikeTheRocker (9) - Gävle, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2015 does not count
33 cl bottle bought at Systembolaget, Orminge, Stockholm. Enjoyed together with dark Alladin-chocolate friday evening watching "Shetland". This is a truly great dark beer with strong smoked taste but it could have had a bit more body and alcohol. Not much bitterness but I like it very much anyway!

procraste (69) - FRANCE - JAN 18, 2015
Version 2014. Noir pas très épaisse ni gazeuse. Du café bien entendu mais avec un petit goût étrange: Cardamonne ?? Plus une pointe d’acidité en fin de bouche. Intriguant, pas désagréable mais trop troublant et aqueux pour moi ...

Excalibur123 (237) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 7, 2014
Vierte negro intenso con pequeña cabeza de espuma beige y media retención, permaneciendo una fina capa; aromas potentes a cacao, café, humo y malta tostada; en boca entrada media con ligero amargor y notas ahumadas; cuerpo y carbónico medios; el ahumado está presente pero sin ser molesto; cerveza bien balanceada, la malta ahumada y el lúpulo están bien equilibrados en una interesante cerveza, resultando fácil de beber.

mzaar (1839) - Varberg, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2014
Flaska. Mörkbrun öl med ett lågt men långvarigt beigt skum. Mycket rök i doften, rök från aska och torv. Dessutom lätt av kaffe och sälta. Inbjudande! Något tunn kropp, men smakerna (rökigheten är dominant, kakao, kaffe, nötter och söt frukt fyller på). Men som sagt, något tunn kropp. Lite mer muskler och det hade kunnat bli en fullträff.
