I am typically not a fan of peat malt in beer, because it typically overpowers all the other flavors. However, the flavor of this beer is extremely well-balanced. I think it is the sweet chocolate that is offsetting the bitter smokiness.

JBPortland (625) - 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!

ERB92 (223) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2014
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.

Bottle 355ml @ Cabin, Homlong Camping, Geiranger
Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, milk chocolate, ash, caramel and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long chocolate and slighty ash finsih. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

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 (6120) - 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.)

L_inconnu (58) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Robe noire magnifique, mousse discrète, beige/brune. Un nez magnifique, très mélasse/fruits rouges et caramel. Une fois en bouche, elle manque de corps. On sent bien le fumé, mais pas grand chose d'autre, si ce n'est une touche de lactose. On perçoit la fameuse touche "BBQ" annoncée, mais il faut le savoir.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Dark chocolate with a smoky component in the aroma and taste. Just a great, drinkable stout

Bottle to glass,average creamy dark brown,rapidly diminishing head. Notes of molasses and roast. Medium mouth feel, alittle thin for a stout, though it had a nice long bitter finish. The smoke was so suttle the base beer ran it over.
