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°

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.

Bottle at monthly 2nd Tuesday tasting at De Molen, hosted by dEnk. Black pour, creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, licorice, chocolate and bready yeast. Flavor is quite bitter, smooth and creamy. Thick body for the low abv. Nice brew.

villevav (377) - FINLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Kahvinen ja savuinen tuoksu. Pikimusta, läpinäkymätön. Maku keskimakea, ei ollenkaan hapan. Jälkimaussa paahteisuutta ja mieto savukinkkuisuus.

floydian1 (1284) - 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.

derBreslauer (142) - Wroclaw, POLAND - SEP 26, 2013
Very dark brown body with frothy and brown head, but reduces quickly. What’s noticeable at first sight is very high carbonation. Aroma of roasted and smoked malts on the front. Smoked aroma is mostly wooden. Underneath it has really pleasant chocolate note with a little bit of caramel. When it comes to taste, it starts with very weak smoked note but next to it there is great chocolate aftertaste with moderate bitter finish. Besides how it looks, it’s a great beer overall.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2013
Pours a pitch black colour, with a small tan head that stays a long time in the glass. Aroma of smoked ham, pine and some scotch notes. Flavour is a lot of burnt malts, smoked ham and nuts. A bit sticky mouthfeel, but with a quite low carbonation. Maybe a tad too watery, but that’s the only negative thing too say about this beer. Overall a nice brew.

il_triggia23 (14) - ITALY - JUN 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2013 Colore ebano scuro. Schiuma che sparisce quasi subito. Al naso affumicato e cioccolato fondente. Abbocco dolciastro che vira immediatamente verso l’amaro. Elegantemente si avvertono le note tostate che permangono fino al termine della bevuta. Grande creazione.
