3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is heavy smoke, dried meat and hints of leather and peat as well. Definitely peat yes, a lot of peat in the taste. Moderate to high roasted flavor with a soft carbonation. Thick and creamy on the palate. A bit extreme.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A black body with a brown head. It had good retention and moderate lace. Heavy smoke on the aroma overtaking the roasted or coffee malts. Flavor seamed to have more balance. While the smoke flavor dominated the flavor there was just enough coffee flavors to stand out. Could not distinguish hops. Dry on the finish. Nice mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Smoked ham, sweet malty notes and some
dark chocolate in aroma. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Smoked ham, slightly burnt dark roasted coffee and
a bit of peaty sweetness lingering underneath in taste. Long smoky aftertaste. Tasteful brew even if
feels slightly thin. A bit of salty licorice can be found under that long-lasting smoky ham and slightly
sweet malty finish as well.
