3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a large beige foamy head. Aroma of peat, wet earth and leather. Flavour of roasted malts, tart wooden notes, peat, grassy hops and subtle smokiness. Medium bodied, a bit harsh mouthfeel and high-ish carbonation. Could use more maltiness and less carbonation. Pairs well with tilsit cheese.

Heerlijke gebrande smaak, geen nare nasmaak. Mooi donker bier met een frisse schuimkraag.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with huge mocca head. Smoke, bacon, grass, lemon, maple syrup, malts, coffee, chocolate. Medium malty sweetness, balanced with a nice bitterness. Bitter finish as well. Quite a lot of carbonation, maybe a bit too much at first. Overall: I though I didn’t really like smoked beers, but this is very nice. Has enough complexity to keep it interesting.
