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.

Ernest (6153) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), with notes of vanilla, manure, earth, hint of smoke. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. What an odd commercial description...this is anything but rich or overpowering. The reality is it’s a fairly plain, simple, easy-going porter, despite the high ABV. And labeling this as a Smoked beer is misleading, as there is virtually no smoke at all that I can detect. Besides the obligatory chocolate/vanilla and roast odors, its only other strong feature is an earthy/manure-like quality. Overall ok, but strangely disappointing. Looks great though...lasting head and first-pour opacity.

shrubber85 (7314) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle (courtesy of the great Patrickctenchi). Smoky lactic chocolate malt and herbal ash aroma. Black with moderate head. Sweet dark chocolate malt and wood smoke flavor. Nice body. Say what you want about Jeppe, he knows how to brew a great beer.

hawthorne00 (2368) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle, 12C. Black with a tan head that settles to a good coat. Aroma of mocha and peat, rum, dark berries, an odd sour milky note . Fairly sweet with a bit of peaty bite, a little boozy heat comes in pretty early. Not dominated by smoke but the berries get a little lost. Dry and quite bitter at the end. Not very ashy but slightly medicinal there too. Not entirely convincing.

maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a small tan head which quickly disappears. Nose is moderately smoked with that salted bacon note and mild spice. Taste is charred malts, quite ashy and bacon forward. A little thin and rough but not bad

Vells (650) - LATVIA - JUN 12, 2014
Quite intense roasted maltiness, caramel, unbalanced smoked character, some choco, licorice and coffee in background. Mostly sweet with roasted malt bitterness and bit sourness in finish. Decent but nothing special

ScipioA (264) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Pours out pitch black, slightly maroon if you look at it obliquely. Smells like burnt sugar along with vaporizing alcohol. More appealing in the mouth, a puff of smoke hits right up front before fading into a sweet and roasted maple-syrup like flavor. The body has a thick, almost dessert-like consistency.

zvikar (3370) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUN 4, 2014

zenkis (549) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours pitch black with small top. Aroma - pure peated malt, didn’t caught any notes of hops or malt bill complexity, maybe some tones of wooden, earthy - but very tiny. Flavor quite the same - one way smoked malts with some light dark malts bitter in background, no malty-caramely sweetness. I have tasted this style - this one is way too boaring. No defects but there is nothing to desire also.
