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°

Tap (Koht, Tallinn)
Rich aroma, sweetish mellow smoke, some umami-hinting soyey meatiness, odd offal aspect too, alas. Dry smoky taste, but with a milky feel, I know smoked milk doesn’t exist, so let’s call it smoked cheese without the cheese. Palate lightish, a little flat. Finish drier and smokier, less full, but no less pleasant. A bit of a weird one, with some downsides, but all in all one that keeps me happy to sip at it.

1.5dl on tap at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. Body is pitch black, head is very small, brownish, fully diminishing, fair lacing. Nose is roasted malt, flavor is dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, toast, dried fruits. Light sweet, heavy roasty bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty medium to heavy bitter, tons of coffee and dark chocolate, slightly watery sidetaste, later also hoppy which is developing. Medium body, sticky dry texture, average carbonation. Not too heavy, great dessert beer, fantastic.
