Really dark pour with mocha head that goes away quickly. Aroma has dark, roasted malts and also some smoked meat. Taste follows with same notes, a bit on the sweet side and not too heavy on the smoke. Body is quite heavy and well carbonated. Overall itís balanced and easy to drink smoked porter.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Opaque black, espresso head. Big chocolate and coffee in the aroma - like a baby impy. Some dried fruit and malts too. The taste is simple, dryer, but with notes of chocolate and coffee too, as well as some woody spiciness. Light bitterness and ashes in the finish. Would bine nice to have a less carbonates and smoother body. Still, very good.

Flavor is light plus sweet, light bitter, burned coffee, deep deep roasted malts, some smokiness, almost meaty in character. Medium body, fairly high carbonation. Burned aftertaste.

A well crafted beer, and something really special for the Greek market, whose lack of a decent smoked beer is kinda prominent. The combination of smoked and roasted malts gives a very tasty and interesting result, one that does not betray loyal beer geeks, but can also be appealing to people less familiar with excessive beer styles.
One can expect great things from the Chios Microbrewery, and this beer is proof.

Strong coffee aroma and taste. Lasting aftertaste. The fact itís unfiltered and unpasteurized makes it very vivid. The 6.2% too. One of the best craft beers to come out of Greece.

330 ml. bottle. Thanks Nikos! Pours almost black with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and a bit of smoke (maybe my imagination). Pretty good.
