3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Svart med lavt brunt skum. Aromaen er sjokolade, kaffe og mildt av bål. Smaken er tydelig sjokolade, samt lakris. Noe røyksmak og kaffe bakker opp. Litt lite røykpreg på denne? Ellers lite å utsette, ypperlig brygg. Mild bitterhet i ettersmaken. Silkemyk i munnen. Medium konsistens.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A black body with a fast fading brown head. Aroma had a nice blend of dark chocolate and smoked malts. There was a bit of licorice, molasses and a touch of vanilla. Flavor was initially sweet and the smoke flavors balanced that out. Mild vanilla seemed to enhance both flavors. Moderate mouth feel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep opaque black with caramel brown foam around the rims.
The nose shows a lot of roasted and smoked malts. Some nice hints of bourbon also appear.
The palate is surprisingly light bodied and foamy. The palate shows dominant roasted malts with very faint hints of chocolate. The finish shows a long bitter smokiness. The bitterness comes off a little strong and doesn’t really display the coffee/espresso type bitterness.
