750ml bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Pours black with a small foamy white head. Aroma has notes of smoked leather, hops and fruits. Taste is quite untypical and has notes of smoke, leather, fruits and roasted malts. Finish is slightly fruity and roasty bitter. I’m not entirely sure if I like this or not.

75 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu, bottled 09.20.2011, BBE 09.20.2016
Aroma is stale and somewhat smoky with the smell of fresh leather shoes out of the box. Also some salmiac. Flavour is hoppy with smoke and salmiac. Rather leathery palate and glueish feeling in the mouth. Alcohol warms in the finish but does not taste.

Pours a black colour with a thick white head with good retention. Quite aggressive aroma of smoked malts, tar and coffee. Flavour of roasted malts, smoke, tar, pine needles and very bitter hops. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, bitter, warming finish. Very rich beer.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 20, 2011
Süßer Malzantrunk, die gelungene Rauchigkeit verringert den süßen Eindruck allerdings. Im späten Mittelteil deutlich hopfiger, dazu grasig-fruchtig. Hier ist dafür kaum noch eine rauchige Komponente vorhanden. Abwechslungsreich & gut! /12/12/12//12
