4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75o ml bottle. An opaque black beer with a small and disappearing brown head. The aroma is very malty with notes of roasted grains, smoke (much smoke), chocolate and some berries. Powerful and intense. The flavour is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Almost a burnt note and again very smokey. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium to high bitterness. Surely a good beer.

10-OCT-2009, bottle @home.
Black with high dark brown head.
Wonderfull roasted, oily, liqourice, tar and the works.
Henrik thinks it tastes like eating cigarettes.
Much to smokey for my taste, but I acknowledge the effort, and still I enjoy this wonderfull beer.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 Thanks to joes for this bottle, I really liked this beer. The smokey/peaty aroma hits you right away and is followed by a nice roasty, coffee, hoppy flavor. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam Deep black body. Creamy, brown (caramel coloured) head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, smoke(d bacon - a little bit), dentist, ... Quite nice aroma, bit subtle but very complex and well balanced. Soft, moderately bitter, moderately sweet flavour. It has a good balance and complexity, but it is not overwhelmed by the malts. Off course it has a distinct coffee/chocolate malt flavour, but also that smokey touch.

Bottle 123/240 shared by maxxdaddy. Thick black motor-oil pour. The nose is intensely rich and smoky. Lots of char and salty soy. There is a bit of plumminess and cherries, but they are muted by the intense heavy dark malts. Bitter chocolate and cocoa. Palate is thick and unctuous with a touch of smoke as well. Heavy charry finish. I like it, although I’m glad we were sharing this bottle.
