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.

Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and roasted with chocolate, nuts, slight smoke and fruits. Nice Smoker-Porter.

humlelala (1015) - DENMARK - AUG 18, 2014
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."

Black of color with a brown head. An aroma of smoked, liqurice, dark chocolate and weak rubber. A flavor of burnt malt, coffee, bitter, cold coffee and bitter.
