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).

Glossy black pour, big thanks to Matt! Big, thick aroma of dark chocolate and molasses, with a wonderful cold smoke mixed in. Something like a dark chocolate candy flavored with a scotch. Nice big mouthfeel follows, with the same smoky, meaty, chocolaty notes. This is really tasty stuff... going to go wonderfully with the marinated tri-tips we just took off the grill. =)

artemb (153) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 18, 2015
Aroma: smoked, roasted pig belly, earth, some rotten notes. Taste: moderate sweetness, light to moderate bitterness, spicy chili. Flavour: smoked pork, chocolate with chili, weak sweet robusta, many complex Mailard products. Very prominent spicy aftertaste. I didn’t really like this big spicy notes. I like chili and I like beer with chili but I am not sure about chili in the beer.

8.2% ABV. Smoked stout. Poured out of the bottle back viscid sin measuring 40°SRM. Black. Nose is medicinal, tarry with stone dust aromas. Wet plaster also comes to mind. There are burnt oak aromas after the shock of the initial smoke. This is not the pleasant smoke you get from peat that is associated even with the most dyed in the wool Islay scotches. This smells more like fire damage. Pronounced carbonation, which is a good thing otherwise this would just be unpalatable. Medicinal. With a lingering palate of charcoal dust. Glad I tried it. Will be unlikely to revisit.

Is bijna niet te drinken. De rooksmaak is TE overheersend. Hij ruikt al heel grauw en vanaf de eerste slok is het vechten. Met kleine nipjes gaat het maar het lijkt net verbrand rubber wat je drinkt.

Ne. Geht gar nicht. Nur rauch und Leder. Dazu mangelnde Kohlensäure und etwas Fisch. Trinkbar, aber auch ekelhaft.
