Nice soft smokey aroma. Some sweet pepperiness too. Some thinness to the palate, noticeable carbonation. Slightly less exciting in the taste. A nice smoky roast, dry, touch woody, burnt wood. Has a kind-of wooden barrel aged feel to it, that I like. And that charred wood stays for thhe finish. Shame about the thinneess, but on the flip-side, there’s no alcohol in the taste. In the finish you can detect some vapour, but it’s not out of place. I lov Menno’s brews, but for some reason the smoked ones always leave me disappointed (only relative to the level of brilliance I expect from Menno, not in an absolute scale, as you can hopefully tell).

Bottle @ home. Black with a brown tint. Small brown head, vaporates quickly. Aroma is strong with coffee, liquorice and smoked wood. Taste has roasted malt, dark syrup, chocolate. Soy and chili on the aftertaste.

Przylus (73) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Aromat wędzonej szynki i drewna. Barwa brunatna, klarowne. Piana drobna, krótka, niska. Smak dobrej wędzonki, szynki, sera, piwo pełne w smaku. Średnia goryczka.

Houtmankutkop (28) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2014
Zeer donker ebony met licht koffieschuim. Ruikt naar vette 21y Laphraoig. Zeer zacht koolzuir. Rooksmaak overheerst niet. Opeens komt het vuur na de rook... Lichte peper achter op de tong/huig. Heerlijk nagenieten... Zoals ik mn vrouwen heb. Rokerig en peper in de reet!

Bottle 0,33l - black with beige head. Aroma of smoked plum and forrest fruits. Very good drinkable, because of low carbonation. The smoke is very light and it just underlines and rounds up the taste. Alcohol perfectly hidden.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2014 Bottle, 33cl, 1 y.o. Pours dark with thin nicely looking coffee-style long-lasting foam. Aroma of chocolate, roasted meat, dark coffee. Taste is pure stout with caramel malt enriched with amazingly well-balanced roasted note. Highly drinkable and very enjoyable.

thanatosti (978) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2014
33 cl. bottle@ home, gift from Sinterklaas. Pitch black with a small quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma of smokey roasted malts but no trace of the chili peppers that must be in them. Not the fruity aroma nor the heat. Nice bitter sweet roasted taste.

Barwa ciemno brunatna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana niezła, ale w miarę szybko opada. Aromat ciekawy bardzo złożony. Jest bekonowa wędzoność, palone słody i lekka fenolowość. Smak również ciekawy, Jest lekka słodycz i kwaskowatość, a w kierunku finiszu do głosu dochodzą palone słody. Piwo jest z pewnością warte spróbowania.

Maakun (836) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2014
33cl bottle. Black with very nice looking creamy beige head. Black berries, smoke, very earthy. Some tobacco, rye bread, sour cream and yoghurt. Light sweet with a hint of bitterness through the smoke, and a light sourness from beginning to end. Medium bodied with bit slick feel. Nice complex stuff, though it’s just slightly too sour and yoghurt for me. Also didn’t get any chili at all. Not sure if it’s supposed to be like this or if it’s a unwanted infection...
