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.

islay (1077) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-5-14. Scents of tar, char, smoke, and soy (think Bacos) with a bit of umami sweetness. Above average but not outstanding smell. Pours dark brown wth a small amount of tan / dark taupe head. Dry, smoky flavor features char, tar, and coffee elements and, yes, ash. Fruity, brown sugar sweetness emerges upon multiple sips. A touch of alcohol in the flavor. The taste simultaneously evokes charred cooking (barbecue, stir fry), coffee, and baked goods like burnt pie crust or dark chocolate brownie. Dry aftertaste. Medium body. Lively in the palate. Easy to drink. Overall, a good beer indeed, though certainly not a great one.

Bottle. Dark black pour, thin lacing and an aroma of smokey peat. Flavor is nice meld of peat, licorice, and malty smoke. Nicely done.

jhp40219 (301) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 3, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Small chocolate colored head that fades into a ring of bubbles quickly leaving a bit of spotty lacing. Aroma surprisingly not that strong. Mostly smoke/burning wood and tobacco with a bit of roasted malts and dark chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, smoke, tobacco, dark chocolate, alcohol, and a bit of dark fruit in the finish. Pretty nice alcohol burn going down. Full body, slightly thick texture, a little higher than average carbonation. Pretty solid smoked porter.

I have never smelt anything like it and that was not in a good way. It reminded me of garbage. I could smell no smoke, no hops, no malt. Luckily, it did taste better than it smelled, but I expected a lot more from this beer based on the description. I got no smoke flavor at all from this. It tasted like a strong porter or a stout. It poured black with a tan head on it. Maybe the next one out of the pack will be better, but based on first impressions, I would not buy this again.

StefanSD (2087) - Lakeside, California, USA - APR 16, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a dense black color with a small tan head that has fair retention. The aroma is big and bold with Bamberg style smoked malts. The taste, like the aroma, features more classic smoked malts, ash perhaps and burnt toast set nicely in an anise stout base. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. The finish is long and dry. Overall: First rate smoked brewski.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma of roasted meat, tobacco, ash, and roasted malt. Taste is ash, smoke, roasted malt, and burnt toast. I liked this better than the mikkeller offering.

conway (1325) - - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Black with a thin mocha head that dissipates quickly and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is campfire smoke, chocolate, bacon and slightly metallic. Taste follows suit and adds some brown sugar, coffee grounds and a hint of lactose. Creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation. Tried this beer years ago and didn't care for it much. Found a lot more depth in it this time around.
