Bottle De Molen. Poured a murky dark brown with a frothy tan head and some clingy lace. The aroma is rich roasted malt, boozy alcohol. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a smooth rich roasty spice, smoke, liqourice, molasses palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Bottle. Pours deep brown to black with a lovely, creamy beige staying head. Aroma has lots of smoke, light chocolate, grassy hops, liquorice. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has smoke, liquorice, vinious, peat, citrus and grass. Lingering, warming bitterness. Really well put together.

18/I/14 - 75cl bottle @ RBBWG III, my place - bottled: 20/IX/11 (2014-104) Thanks to Kraddel for sharing the bottle!

Cloudy muddy brown beer, creamy irregular beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, caramel, some vanilla, sugary, bit fruity, dried fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: smoky, more smoky, then some smoke flavours. Also some caramel, little sweet. Well, it is smoked, that’s for sure... Aftertaste: very smoky again, little hoppy, some caramel, bitter touch, dried fruits. Weird beer, weird style, oh well...

75cl bottle, got it from Zombier. Pours deep dark brown with medium beige frothy head. Smoke, chocolate, dried fruits and hops on the nose, exactly as expected. The taste is dominated by roasted malts, but the smoke and the hops are present as well. The palate is lightly sweet, similar to caramel. Medium body, good carbonation. Very interesting beer overall, well balanced and pretty tasty.

Ahumada, eso lo resume todo. A mí me encanta pero entiendo que no es una cerveza para todos los paladares, aunque a quien sea capaz de sacarle el gustillo la disfrutará muchísimo.

Cask at Borefts 2011. Poured dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of roast malt with fruit and hops. Flavour of smokey malt don’t mesh that well with the hops. Dry smokey aftertaste.
