Svart med mørkt, brunt skum som ligger lenge. Delikat, mørk aroma av kakao, nøtter og tørket frukt. Fyldig, med fin syre og alkoholvarme. God og kraftig. (Havnabakken, 28.05.14)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Interesting aroma. Wheat, roasted malt and hops. Not complex, but bonus points for being unique. Pours pitch black with a surprisingly large tan bubbly head. Leaves little lacing on the glass. There is a lot of smoke in the taste, which is a pleasant surprise for me. Besides the smoky flavor, the taste is similar to the aroma with a punch of hop bitterness at the end. A bit weak on the palate - it could be fuller and thicker. Kind of reminds me of Stone Smoked Porter, would be good with BBQ. I feel this beer may be a bit overrated, but it is interesting and unique. Worth a try, probably not worth the price.
