4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
NYE bottle share at Proof. Apparently 4-5 years aged. Pours a deep rich black color with very thin head and a decent tan collar. Aroma is lightly smoked malt, and some burnt coffee. Taste is very similar. Taste is not overly smoked, which is a common complaint I have about smoked beers. Thick body and low-medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Smoky and roasty aroma with notes of malt and coffee. Smoky and roasty flavour, with notes of malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Hints of hops and touches of yeast. Lingering, bitter and roasty aftertaste. A well-balanced, decent smoked stout. Good, indeed.

Bottle, 7.0%. Sweet creamy aroma. Black colour. Small dark brown head. The flavour is creamy and roasted. Has a syrupy sweetness, like jam. Only a hint of smoke, but that is probably for the best. The finish is creamy and roasted with a little more smoke. Late charcoal, bonfire smokeyness. Soft carbonation. Good.

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.

The smoke is incorporated nicely and doesn't overwhelm. Very nutty and roasty with a lingering finish.
