3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tan finger with legs over jet; not very viscous. 3.75
Treacle and bacon. 3.75
Licorice and rum, mild phenol clove in the middle, and mild malted milk balls to end. 3.5
Medium, round, and chewy. 3.5
Looks a bit thin and sickly sweet nose. Doesn’t improve from here: too sugary, not smoky enough, and just bleh. Only decent as a porter. More mediocrity and faux-American branding from Coisbo. 3.5

UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Pours with a light head which has a creamy taste. Dark brown and with a chocolate nose and light coffee. Taste is sweetish and also gives a rich malt of different choices. Not much of hops but still really a nice companionship.

Disappointingly flat carbonation, no real finish, soft texture. The smoked quality of this beer is humble indeed, making for a beer that’s a little too ’easy’ to drink, and which leaves you wanting more ... well, smoke. Plenty of aroma, though.

(Coisbo Brooklyn Fall) Bottle 330 ml from a trade with Beerhunter111, thanks! Served into a dimpled mug, ABV 6.2%
Dark mahogany brown colour on the body, with a good sized beige head sitting on top, thick, and with good retention.
Aroma has subtle smoke, light alcohol, vanilla, chocolate.
Taste has also the slightest of smoke, lots of chocolate, moccha, vanilla, light alcohol present although it’s just a 6.2% beer, roasted malts, fudge, light ash, red fruits.
Medium body, good carbonation, slightly sticky on the palate.
More like a porter this one, if you expect lots of smoke you’d be disappointed but other than that it’s a fantastic beer.

A beautiful beer with clearly smoked aroma. Tastes good smoke with notes of dark chocolate and hard roasted malt. A slightly burnt caramel is in the background. A lovely delicate smoked beer with great rich flavor.

Very dark Brown, fine and persistent thick caramel froth.
Lactic, caramel, slightly smoky.
Full bodied, sweet, but not too sweet.
Not special, but nice and round.

Rating #1095, flaske fra Voldby
Sort, uklar øl med lidt skum. Duft af lakrids, røg, ristet malt og reb. Sød røgsmag med lakrids, bål og lidt chokolade. Lidt tynd, men blid kulsyre. God, men konceptet er set før.

The aroma is full of smoke, dark chocolate, liqourice, rope, tar and coffee. The taste is full of chocolate, smoke, coffee and rope. It’s pretty sweet. The finish is long and there are lot of small dots on the tongue. The color is black and murky.
