4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark coffee, dark chocolate, licorice and black malt in the aroma. The flavor is coffee beans, dark chocolate and black malt. Heavy bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Really good and powerful beer. Takes a while to drink. Enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromat: Palony bardzo mocno palony, sporo dymu gdzieś w tle kawa
Smak: równie spalonego piwa jeszcze nie piłem. Niczym spalony spód od ciasta, dym, troche drewna, gorzkiej czekolady i kawy. Ciało mogło by być troche wyzsze ale i tak swietne piwo

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark body, brown head, not much retention, but looks nice. Roasted malt and a touch of smoke in the aroma. Taste is roasted malt, a faint hint of smoke, kind of watery. Mellow palate. Kind of disappointed with this one. I’m guessing there was something off with this bottle/batch as it’s not the "overpowering" experience of the description or in the comments of other raters.

Large beautiful and impressive light brown foam. I love Jeppe ’s (master brewer) own description of this beer: ’Unlikely viscous, seductive dark and smoking good. Yes a real heartbreaker. We recommend that only really trained beerchamps can take on this fiendishly addictive and overwhelming good smoked stout. Beware, many experience a slight placebo effect if swallowed’.
Am I a well-trained beerchamp? I do not know, for it is not a term I have used on myself. Otherwise, I fully agree with the description. It is viscous and seductive and really smoked. It is a Nils Oscar Rökporter and a Aecht Schlenkerla at the same time, namely with a good deal of smoked malt. A little to the cool side, where you almost feel what it must feel like to lick the skin from a smoked eel. Overwhelming good, it is also because there is left room for coffee flavor and dark bitter chocolate. Addictive I would also like to join. Especially on a cold autumn or winter evening. It brings namely warmth and comfort throughout the body, and it is certainly addictive in the long term. The placebo effect is immediately worse to relate to, for is it not something that, for example. ill patients may feel themselves healthy just by the belief that the doctor prescribed calcium tablets is a newly developed wonderful medicine? If Jeppe therefore believe that beer drinkers can be tricked into thinking that Ashtray Heart is a profound delicate smoked stout, which in reality is brewed from coincidences, then he is mistaken. I can taste that this is really good and well-brewed craft beer. So maybe I’m actually a well-trained beer champ!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 fl. oz. bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a deep dark/black as night beer with almost no light coming through even against a strong source. Small-ish tan creamy head but great retention. Aroma is really strange (sorry, I am not yet an expert on Smoked beers). Dominant smokiness with notes of smoked bacon, ham, peat, some good barbecued tenderloin. Hints of mashed tabacco leaves are clear after a while and remain present throughout the drinking session. Taste is pretty complex, smokey, tarry with some salty notes offset by a little bit of sweetness. A touch of chocolate comes throught but it goes away smoothly. A peaty aftertaste dominates for minutes after swallowing. Medium to big body. Oily texture. It’s fine... an acquired taste. I would like to try more smoked beers and re-rate this one.

Bottle. Very nice aroma of bonfire smokiness, roasted malts and dried fruits. In taste roasty with strong smokiness. The beer is medium sweet, full bodied with enough bitterness to counter sugars. Smooth on the palate, alcohol well hidden. Well done.
