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°

Countbeer (5034) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle @ Kiss The Kitchen Floor or better known as ZZT VI (2013): kindly shared by IluvatarMilan: Medium sized light brown colored foamy head, changes with regular speed and leaves a thin lacing on top of deep dark brown colored beer with black tints. Aroma’s of bay leaf, liquorice, roast & smoke, darker barley malts, some darker hops and dark herbs. The flavours are a mix of liquorice, bitters, bay leaf, roasted barley malts, smoke and toasted/ roasted herbs. Aftertaste is light bitter with some bay leaf. Medium carbo, blown creamy and airy mouthfeel, good medium body and a light watery texture. Pretty good beer, specially for such low ABV.

IluvatarMilan (280) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Zzt bottle. An unsurprising strong smoky aroma, some liquourice in the nose. Taste is balanced and drinkable. Much milder smoke, hint of meatiness. Pleasant.

0,75 l bottle, Csakajosor, Budapest.
Poured black as midnight, creamy small beige head. Aroma of smoked ham, ash and earth, leather, wood and some oak.. Taste of some caramel, ash and smoke, earth and dead fallen leaves. Interesting one.

Let’s start with the negative side: the beer is watery, especially for a stout. Other than that this is one of the best beer I have ever had from Italy. A nice smokey stout with a great lingering taste. Bottle from Van Erp.

csakajosor.hu Igen sötét, vörösesbarna színe van, ami ha nem fény felé tartjuk, akkor teljesen feketének tűnik. Habja igen termetes, kapucsínó barna, tele van buborékkal és közepes idő alatt tűnik tova. Illata enyhén füstölt sajtos, kissé húsos, pörkölt magvas, tőzeges és kávés. Ízében is folyamatosan ott van a füstös aroma, de nem olyan erősen, mint a híres Bambergi rokonainál. Mellette van még pörkölt maláta, kakaópor, kávé, vanília, kis szalonna, túlégetett szotyi, sajt és egy adag komló. Könnyű teste van és apró kis buborékokkal van telítve. Utóíze kormos, kesernyés és száraz. Engem meggyőzött!

Dobre piwo choć spodziewałem się więcej dymnego posmaku wędzonki. Przeważa palony słód, wędzonego jest mniej. I zdecydowanie mniej niż w słynnej Schlenkerli z Bamberga. Na spory plus zasługuje wygląd to mamy bardziej czarne jak guinness piwo z brążową pianą. Piwo jest na finiszu bardzo wytrawne i palony aromat dominuje podczas każdego łyka. Ogólnie polecam.
