Bottle from Vinmonopolet Bergen, thanks to Sis and her fiance for getting me this! Pours black with a thick, small bubbled beige head. Aroma is much like a porter; roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, some sweet notes, faint smoke and leather and that familiar Haandbryggeriet smell. Taste is sweet at first, then bitter and roasted, has some citrus, chocolate and subtle smoke and yeast at the end. Mouth feel is dry, medium body and carbonation. After taste is citrusy and bitter.
Tastes more like a well hopped porter than an CDA/Black IPA but it’s really nice nonetheless.

Fantastisk røykeøl fra haandbrygeri. Ikke for mye røyksmak men veldig godt balansert. Denne hadde passet bra til en litt kraftig ost. Anbefales

Theydon_Bois (10540) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle split at JF’s, from Utobeer, 23/08/13. Opaque light black with a good sized tan head. Nose is smoke, light medicinal angle, dark toffee, tar, Ronseal. Taste comprises roast malt, chocolate notes, dark toffee, molasses, hoppy presence. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry roasty finish with light hop bitterness. Nice work but coming across more as a smoked stout than a CDA!

1L Squealer. Pours pitch black with a mocha head and a pleasant citrus/molasses aroma. Light chocolate in the flavour with resinous hops and a medium bitterness. Not bad.

Subtle choc and caramel but just too smokey for me - looks great - interesting palate great with food but not as a session beer!
