12 oz bottle from bytemesis. Nose is smoke, dark chocolate, and a peaty yeast note. Black with almost no head, just a very light thin layer of cinnamon tan. Flavor is smoky, roasty, and a hint of bitterness. Nice lightly smoked ale!

Ron (2454) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Roasted, toasted and smokey. Very dark and creamy in appearance. Full palate that was creamy and smooth. Low carbonation, which benefitted. Smoke, coffee, roasted malts with a clean finish. It coats the mouth and seems almost like a milk stout except for the smoke at the end.

Simonsen (623) - NORWAY - JUL 18, 2014
Flaske fra vinmonopolet vika. Svart ugjennomsiktig farge . Litt vannete. Liten beige skumtopp. Moderat karbonert. Smaker mørkbrent malt, kaffe, sjokolade, aske, røyksmak. Antydning til tjære. Ganske god men mangler litt futt

JBPortland (658) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 1, 2014
12oz bottle pours viscous black with a small tan head. Nose is roasty burnt brownie batter, coffee grounds, some subtle dark fruit, a hint of smoke. Taste is creamy roast malt, bitter dark chocolate, burnt toast, brownie, very subtle and balanced smoke compliments the rich roastiness. Finish is sticky dark chocolate cake, cocoa, dark fruit, bitter coffee. Smoke element is very subdued and adds just a little accent to what is already a very well made stout. Pretty tasty!

Milk chocolate, nuts, roasted malts and a faint hint of smoke in the aroma. Black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall a really nice brew, but i expected a bit more smoky flavour.

Pours black with a bit of tan head. Nose is roast, milk chocolate, maybe a hint of smoke. Taste matches, milky, lactose, roast, a touch of coffee. If I'm really looking for it I get some smoke on the finish, but it's really not overly present. If you're looking for a Rauchbier this isn't it, very subtle if at all. Thin mouthfeel. It's fine, I want more smoke. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Small brown head. Opaque black body, even in direct sunlight. Deep chocolatey earthy aroma with faint smoky notes. Sweet-dryish red berry and chocolate taste with smoky grainy notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish roasty burnt smoky aftertaste with chocolatey notes. Leaves an ashy burnt finish lingering for a good while. Very nice and drinkable, quite unusual, but loses some points for the finish. (0.33l bottle, from wine monopoly, Oslo, Vika.)
