Headbanger (3388) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2013
750ml bottle 10/31/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-46° in Mug-Pours black with a big tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, and coffee. Taste of smoke, malt, and slight coffee. This medium bodied brew is not bad but I was expecting more smoke if this is indeed the category is supposed to be.

AirForceHops (3526) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 7, 2013
750 ml Bottle purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse back in March. Dark, deep brown nearly black in color. Aroma is lightly smoked, Belgian yeast and caramel. Kind of like a Dubbel with a hint of smoke. I like the aroma more than the flavor. The smoky peat, roasted chocolate and shoe leather. Finishes with a charcoal bitter finish. I stored this in my cellar properly. Not sure how long this sat on the shelf. However, the style itself really isn’t my “cup of tea”.

Imaena (1887) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle. The pours is a deep deep brown black with an nice tan head. The nose is smokey caramel. The taste is well balanced smokiness with roasted malts and a touch of hops. This is a bit thin for my taste and I think it could be really improved with a fuller palette and mouth feel.

MikeJslc (759) - USA - APR 20, 2013
Dark brown, light haze, tan head. Aroma: chocolate, dark fruit, boozy-sweet, smoky, leathery, earthy. Flavor of bready malt, baker’s chocolate, raisins, licorice, more smoke. Thin body, low/medium carbonation. Interesting beer.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a rather small head. Fairly malty nose with just a hint of smoke to it. Taste is a tad sour and somewhat characteristic of a dry stout. OK.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Appearance: slightly murky dark browns under a creamy tan head which collapses in the middle while the sides stick with clumpy lace. Mahogany glints.
Nose: whispers of tartness weave in and out – dark fruit and old wine tannins. Chocolate covered dark fruits – prunes and dates especially. Red wine soaked leather. Sticky. Brittle bitter bakers chocolate along the sides.
Palate: tart and lactic along the sides with rich prunes, dates, and plums in the middle – dried, not fresh. Juniper and fig in the back. Black root for an earthy quality. Bakers chocolate along the edges. Nice tang of sour lactic acid along the edges tingles and generates a thirst for more. Raw rhubarb.
Final Thoughts: another wonderful beer from the fine folks at Brouwerij de Molen. Their beers are hard to find but when you can find them, be sure to buy, savor, and maybe even cellar if you so desire. Delicious.

Bevbro (26) - Jamul, California, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Smoked beers aren’t my favorite but this ones got it going on. Definitely on the peaty woody side.

mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2012
750mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of light smoke, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavour of chocolate, smoke, a bit of roasted malt - but pretty thin for an 8% stout. Leaves much to be desired, but decent.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle at home, out of my newly nostalgic Maudite glass. God I miss my mTH glass, but it still is just out of my reach, mocking me on the bottom shelf on my glass cabinet. With my knee blown out at present, it is unreachable... Sad... Pours semi-opaque cola-black, moderate pale tan head, ropey lacing. Nose is dark chocolate, lioght brandy/alcohol, tar/smoke, and some light fudge notes. Deeper nosing discerns notes of graphite and dark berries. Flavours run to the creamy and smoky, very odd... Smoke, cream, pencil shavings, light soap, and tar in the mouth. Not as heavy as I was expecting, but still quite good.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2012
bottle from nbutler 7/3/11. dark porter color with a small tan head. sweet scotchy aroma... bs, peat, roast, mild smoke and an unknown fruitiness. it tastes a lot like cola...mixed with sour smoke, roast and that weird fruit from the aroma... maybe a mix of peaty scotch and an infected porter....weird. 6/4/6/3/13
