Lovely smoke character, peat and not really any noticeable fruit or hop flavours. Taste has some lapsang souchon tea, and ashy flavour and mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A 330ml bottle from the 2014 small batch, bottle number 6488 of 8480 with a best before end date of October 2015. It was poured into a pint glass. The beer poured a dark brown with a thinnish cream tanned head that did not stick around too long. Aromas of roasted malts with a bit of chocolate, licorice and slight peat smoke. Taste starts slightly sweet caramel and chocolate maybe even some toffee, but finish is definitely smoky, bitter and lingering ash. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall, I’ve had quite a few smoked beers before and although this was not the best of them, it was still pretty good. I would buy this again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle sampled at Amager Bryghus, thanks to Papsø. Dark brown with a small tan head. Heavy peated smoke in the nose. Peat also dominates the flavour with some earth, light fat, wood, molasses. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and light bitter. Ok, but nothing groundbreaking.
