Very Piceous black and viscous pour with a rich mahogany brown head. The nose is right smoky upfront with big cured meats and black strap molasses. A bit sharp at the end of the flavor with a metallic note. Big and heavy flavor with smoke dominating things. Touch of camp fire. Full body .

Flaska från Khioskh, Cph. Svart öl med brunt skum. Doften är rostad med lakrits, mörk choklad och blöt aska. De rostade tonerna av malt och kaffe är de mest framträdande de rökta, askiga tonerna kompletterar. Riktigt god.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a large mocha colored head. Aroma is of, well, smoke. Flavor is sweet and slightly bitter with a smoky aftertaste that lingers in the mouth. Body is thick. This is a high gravity beer and the alcohol is well hidden. This ranks among the best smoked beers I have tried, including ...uh....

Bottle thanks to czar, thanks bro! Pours a really dark brown with a small brown head that leaves good lacing. Nose is fun with some good smoke, coffee, bar room. Taste is not an ounce to sweet and even feels dry to some extent, some alcoholic wonders maybe? Flavors are smoky of course but also offer some slight meaty angles and plenty of coffee. All the roasted malt also give some licorice impressions. Body is full, almost stout-ish, carbonation medium. Overall this was really good, a nice smoky treat!

Hardware: 12oz bottle (made on 1/3/14) into Le Guinness
Nose: good ole smoke
Sip: toast, roast and caramel
Misc: weak boby, but no booze bite
Conclusion: disappointed. downhill after the first sip.
