Mossy, smokey, beef jerkey, soy, light char, black pour, thin ring on top. Earthy, sweet smokey, roast and char bbq sauce notes. Charred dry aftertaste and dry lingering mouth feel. Not too much of a hint of 10percent.

500ml bottle, thanks Tom! Damn earthy and pure freshly tanned leather hide. As it opens though, the leather turns into more light smoked malt. Light smoke, dark chocolate, leather, peat, licorice, quite a bit of damp decomposing earth and damp basement. Well made and interesting flavors for a stout.

Bottle, tasted in December 2009. Black and oily. Tan head. Sweet and rich. Big powerful stuff. Lovely dark, burnt malt. Quite smoky. Perhaps a bit too sweet for my palate but very tasty.

A very smoked beer indeed - and also very sweet. It acts like a dark and über friendly woman. At first you’re very pleased but along the way you realized that it’s just a tad too much. You cannot however deny the sheer intensity and quality altogether. Interesting.

Bottle. Black colour with a medium beige head; aroma and taste of roasted malts with notes of licorice and chocolate; sweet and full-bodied, lasting dryish finish. the high abv is well hidden.

smagt til ølsmagningen i Frederikssund. En fin øl, men smagen af røgmalten trænger en del igennem og skjuler mange af de andre malttyper.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Spicy alcoholic rum and roasty chocolate aroma with tar notes. Dry-sweetish earthy alcoholic roasty taste, again with tar notes. Mid-bodied. Dry ashy spicy chocolatey aftertaste with alcohol notes. A bit too much alcohol and ash; would probably benefit from aging. (0.5l bottle, Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.)
