Not great for a stout. Really boozey and smokey tasting with a ton of dark fruits. I understand why a lot of other people seem to like it but it just isn’t for me.

Looks okay - dark with light foam. Aroma is smokey meats - nice. Taste is smoke, big dark malts, lingering chewiness. Don’t think I love the finish here. Could be a whole lot cleaner! Overall, nice smoked ale.

200ml on tap at Fermentoren, shared with Skinnyviking. Oily black content. Brownish ring to the rim of the glassware. Smoky nose, hints of cocoa and anise. Smoked malts mixed with chocolate and dried fruits. Bitter coffee grounds to the finish. Well blended and fine bodied. Smooth on the swallow. Like it (Copenhagen 03.05.2014).

Nothing horrible going on here, but nothing great either. Too many fusel notes, very slick. This damn thing reminds me of their Dookie. It’s okay, but nothing I want part of.
