COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Usandsynlig tyktflydende, forførende mørk og smoking good. Ja en rigtig hjerteknuser. Vi anbefaler, at kun de virkelig veltrænede ølchamps tager kampen op med denne frygteligt vanedannende og overvældende gode røgstout. Pas på, mange oplever en mindre placebo-effekt ved indtagelse.
Ingredienser: vand, malt, peated malt, humle, gær.
English Language Label: Amazingly rich, seductively dark and smoking good. Yes a real heartbreaker. We recommend only the truly skillful, heavyweight beer champions to battle this awfully addictive and overpowering smoked Stout. Be careful because this is the real deal with a minor Placebo effect. Makes invalids out of supermen.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle: Silky black, oily pour; thin-bubbled, creamy tan layer of foam on top. Aroma has some nice, sweet hickory smoke, campfire, hints of char, a touch of meaty bacon, & a finish with some woodsy tobacco. Some faint notes of unsweet cocoa as well. Taste is also smoke heavy; roast, campfire char, mild ash, lightly salty meat, & a notable, herbal hoppiness leaving a staunch bitterness in the back-end (though some of that is likely from the smoked malt as well). Aftertaste of smoked hickory & some ashy, roasted bitterness. Definitely an intense smoked beer, but one that I enjoyed quite a bit.

HogTownHarry (6200) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
blankboy’s 330ml bottle. Pretty thick-looking ruby-brown, decent light brown creamy head. Aroma is ... smoke; ashes, campfire, peat - you know; smoke (and roast). Taste - a simple porter, I guess, and ... smoke. Slick, astringent, weakly carbonated, smokey and malty in the finish. Loved it.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 6, 2014
A black body with a a brown head that had nice retention and lace. Mostly smoke and roasted malts on the aroma. A mild sense of cocoa. Flavor had an initial sweetness from what I'm guessing us chocolate malts. Roasted malts balanced it out. Smoke was mostly present in the finish and aftertaste. A smooth body with a moderate palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle
Once again thanks to malrubius for opening this nice smoked beer. Always a fan of Evil Twin’s work I do not get a chance to drink them that often because of the price point. However as long as they keep making their way overseas I will be sure to pick up a draft from time to time to support one of the best in the business today.

Aroma / Appearance - The inky black base was sticky with a tan mocha head. Heavy and thick it sticks in the glass like an oily fog. Ash, cigarettes, dark chocolate, and little bits of olive are a combination of mostly dark and mysterious characteristics.

Flavor / Palate - Ash, chocolate, and peat linger in the air. The dry transition carries the experience to a profile like the air in a seedy nightclub just after closing time at 4 AM. Musty and chewy waves of texture are perfect for a beer of this caliber. All told it is a world class release although one that I would probably pass on again just because of the price.

AgentAle (1008) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
Aroma is very smokey; some peat presence here. The taste is a very rich maltiness up front that is paired with some dark fruits, slight bitterness and slight alcohol bite. Head pours extremely aggressively with a light brown head that retains very well. Very dark body.

notalush (5280) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Black pour with a moderate, soapy, dark tan lace - nose is a nice mixture of sweeter malt characteristics (chocolate, prune, anise), mild savory character (umami), tannic qualities, and more bitter/dry malt tones (roast/espresso) which the hearty, earthy smokiness settles onto nicely - low carbonation, somewhat watery texture for its size - flavor is, sadly, not nearly as complex as the aroma - fairly sweet, moderately bitter, and only mildly smoky - a little bit of char/roast, vanilla/roasted marshmallow, coffee bean - not much else - lacks the depth and hearty smoke character the aroma promises - some alcohol heat in the finish - okay, but I was expecting a home run here from this brewery.

allmyvinyl (5784) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2014
330ml bottle shared with Jeevan. (Beers of Europe?) Very dark pour, thick brown head. Light smoke and tobacco aromas. Dark chocolate on the taste. Rich, nice.

From 12oz bottle. Pours dark with tan head. Dark aroma strong with coffee and smoke. Taste follows. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Tim. Makes me want dry rubbed ribs. Nice smoked beer. Feels like they added artificial smoke flavor to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fidelis83 (2137) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Deep black pour with a 1 finger, dusty brown head that has great retention. Aroma is smoke, char, roast, stale coffee, peat smoke, wet leather, chocolate, earth and light metallic notes. Flavor is nutty wood and peat smoke up front, dark chocolate, iodine, earth, a little soy, dull woody notes, old coffee, and light metallic notes. Creamy to slick body with a light, somewhat sharp carbonation. Really good stuff overall, but it seems a little too ashy and oxidized. While I don’t always consider those to be bad attributes in beer, they are a little too prevalent here.
