COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale in Smoked Stout style. With an interesting colour of a friar’s frock, this beer is characterised by a thick cappuccino-coloured foam. On the nose, it has smoked notes recalling scamorza and toasting notes recalling coffee. In the mouth, it’s more delicate and features notes of liquorice, cocoa and dried fruit (carob) which come along with a delicate bitter taste due to the toasting of malts. 12.5°

caesar (5059) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014
Bottled @ de Molen tasting, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of blackcurrant, some smoked malts, coffee, dark bread. Quite dry in taste, malty bitterness, not much sweetness. Much better in taste than in aroma actually. Very full bodied for just 5%. Nice stuff.

Dark brown with thick, creamy head. Aroma has light smoke and sweet caramel malts. It’s smooth and creamy. Bittersweet tastes of chocolate and mocha. Perhaps a bit too sweet.

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle at the March 2014 De Molen monthly tasting. Poured a clear dark brown with a foamy light tan head. The aroma is caramel, smoke, alcohol. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a malt caramel, coffee, watery hop biter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lovely aroma, tastes great, but falls away quite rapidly. A nice beer though and i’d be happy to have a bottle in my cellar.

villevav (211) - FINLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Kahvinen ja savuinen tuoksu. Pikimusta, läpinäkymätön. Maku keskimakea, ei ollenkaan hapan. Jälkimaussa paahteisuutta ja mieto savukinkkuisuus.

floydian1 (929) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 8, 2013
0.66l bottle. Reddish hue on a black pour with small beige head that provides a decent lace. Nose is dominated by smoky bacon with subtle sweet roasted malts and coffee. Palate is smooth and creamy with bittersweet smoky ashen flavours and a dry finish. Touch of dark fruit in there as well. Almost like a smoked stout but lacking in body and sophistication to be the genuine article.

Bottle at Bettola, august 27th 2013. Black body, creamy beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, smoke, caramel. Taste of roasted malt, ash, campfire, licorice. Pleasant bitterness with a dry finish, fresh and light body makes the beer quite refreshing.
