jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2014
Bottled from de Molen shop, Bodegraven. Opaque black, small brown head. Powerful nose, malts, coffee, licorice, raisins, leather, some smoke. Very thick mouthfeel, roasted malts, sweetness with quite some bitterness, caramel, somewhat dry in finish. Aroma is better than flavor, but overall still a very good beer.

panacea (56) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2014
Pours black with minimum head. Aroma is dominated by red berries and oak. Great mouthfeel. Tingling sweet taste, a little smokiness and a bit boozy finish. Great beer from my favorite brewery!

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
33cl bottle. It pours a deep brown almost black body with a minuscule brown head thy dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet upfront with red berries licorice coffe, port wine, vanilla. Then some woody smokiness comes through nicely. Taste is similarly well balanced between the bourbon sweet notes and ashy smokey notes. Mouthfeel is bold with good carboantion. Overall, one of the way smoked stouts I’ve head.
