A tap Cardinal. Brown color with thin brown head. Nose is alcohol, some smokeypork, woody, malt and a thouch of caramell. Sweet flavour with more smokeyness, almost bacony, caramelmalt and a smokey alcoholic finish, dark brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, bacon, beach wood smoke, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of beach wood smoke, caramel, alcohol, and malt, leading to a dry smokey finish.

Dark brown, lots of tan head which stays almost forever. Coffee, malt, dark chocolate, wood, slight hint of tonic aroma. Bitter, some sweetness. Good mouth feel. Moee similar to a well hopped brown ale than a black ipa to me. Good beer though.

Coleur noir avec une grande mousse marron. Une arôme très interessante. D’abord, quand il reste encore de la mousse il y a une arôme de molasse avec du malt. Ensuite, après que la mousse est rétréci un peu, c’est un arôme très complexe. Je trouve du cantaloupe, rasins, fruits, molasse, chocolat, et un goût sucré que je ne peut pas nommer. Chaque fois que je le senti le parfum subtil est unique, mais le sucré reste. Le goût est légèrement sucré, ça peu être du molasse ou même du chocolat (mais plutôt du molasse) avec une finale légèrement amer et une finale de malt. C’est très onctueux et facile a boire. Carbonation moyenne avec les bulles très douces.

Pours black and velvety. Aroma is fresh and hoppy with undertones of robust stouty smells. The flavour is impossibly smooth with rich smokey malt flavour balanced beautifully with a whack of fresh hop ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lilja (1578) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
Smak och doft av kffe, choklad, läder, rök och tjära och en aning vanilj. Välbalanserad med en trevlig beska. Förmedla känslan av en rököl. Väldigt gott.
