0,75 l bottle as in picture. Pours black with little head. Peaty aroma, roasted and burnt malts and some coffee. Aroma is strong, flavour is strong and full. Again the peatiness and the burnt malt is really present here. Some dark earth tones are present too. Good beer.

Bottle 33cl from bierkoning thanks. The most intense and impressive gushing ever, remains only 15% of the bottle in my glass !! A dark beer with caramel and smoked notes, aroma is smoked and sweet with a creamy body and fruity finish, ashes notes, unfortunately too less.

Near full-bodied. Viscous texture. Well roasted dark malts withe choco and licorice tones. Firm bitterness, both from the malts and the hops. Peat and smoke in the backbone. Smoky dark malts linger in a lasting finish. Very potent, very tasty.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gushing volcano after the champagne style opening extravaganza. Big pillowy tan head atop a black oil like substance below. Big roasted malt aroma, hint of burnt rubber and band-aid like smoke aroma. Sour flavor with subdued chocolate and smoke. A little tart and not to style. But close to the description. Should be classed as a smoked beer with IS as the base. Decent though.
