Bottle. Nice brown head, but didn’t last too much. Strong (greek!) coffee and smoke aroma. Same at the powerful taste. Like the long lasting bitter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 (bottle from the brewer himself; BBD: 24th of January 2015; L131113 2) Pours black with one-finger toffee head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is a very harmonic blend of toasted malt and smoke with some coffee-like notes. Oily texture, medium carbonation, medium yet relatively full body. Flavour is in my opinion resemblant of an Irish porter, very harmonic, dry, smoked and full with only a slight ascerbicity in the finish. Easily the best dark, Greek beer I ever tasted. Highly recommended. Girlfriend says: "It’s a bit more acidic in the bottle but still good."

giorgos_gtc (82) - GREECE - JUN 11, 2014
Something like a bitter chocolate. Smoked enough in the aroma but different taste as a smoked beer. Good enough. It is fair to taste again. Combined well with some dark chocolate or a mild cigar.

kermis (4921) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to Deanso. Pours very dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is massive roasty, dark chocolate, coffee, malt. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light heavy bitter. The smoke comes out in the palate fairly softly with toffee and fudge. Fairly thick mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Nice one!
