4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown, verging on black with a 1 finger foamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malts, some coffee and smokey burnt wood notes. The smoke is much more evident in the taste. Roasted espresso beans and chocolate are mixing it up nicely with dark fruits. The taste is all about the smoke, but not cloyingly so. Very smooth mouthfeel with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, this is a well-balanced and interesting smoked porter.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours an opaque black with a light brown head. Sweet roasty vanillaish nose with a subtle touch of smoke. Sweet and slightly salty licorice accents. Medium body, sweet roast, vanilla and tar with a round and warming finish. Not a smoke beer, but a very well made Baltic Porter with a whiff of smoke. 280312

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Man, I’ve been sitting on this bottle for awhile now. Can’t believe this was brewed in 2010. I’m a huge fan of Smokejumper, so it’s a bit of a sin that I’ve been waiting this long. Guess it got lost in the back of the beer fridge. Anyway, upon opening it doesn’t seem like anything is wrong with the beer. Pour is jet black with a nice tan foam. Foam fades quickly but laces nicely. Beer smells amazing. Spice, smoke, and roast. Some dark chocolate. Smells lush and full. Very lustful smelling beer. Tastes is quite good. Smoke is there but not ridiculous. In fact, everything about this beer seems impeccably balanced. Nice sizzling spice on my tongue for the finish. Maybe not bold enough, but this beer does have some time on it. Quite good. Hope they make it again someday.

Nice and crisp, pretty clean finish. Don't get much of the "pepper" until the after taste. Seems too dark to be a "porter" but still kinda light (not heavy)

Pours black with thick tan head. Aroma of smoke, dark roasted malt, and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is very smokey with rich dark roasted malt and some chocolate notes, a little sweetness comes through the smoke. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall, solid brew!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Black as anything, thin tan head which persists. Aromas are like someone set fire to clotted cream, huge meat-smoke and dairy with with plenty of dark chocolate on the side. Tastes amazing, incredibly balanced chocolate, coffee and vanilla but with that omnipresent salty-smoke which never overpowers. Excellent beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle, Ölbaren, Copenhagen, 16 Feb 2012) Black colour with frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of pine needles, black coffee and dark chocolate. Malty, roasted taste with chocolate, coffee, dark bread and a gentle cocoa bitterness in the finish. A touch of peat, but not very smoky. More than medium body, with a rounded, almost creamy, mouthfeel. A certain sweetness lingers throughout. Very nice and well balanced.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark oily black. Very little head. Aromas of smoke, cocoa, caramel, milk chocolate, metallic, sour and a little dark fruits. First taste is smokey, spicy and peppery. Different. Some cocoa and milk chocolate notes come through in the middle and finishes with a spicy cream flavor. Mouthfeel is very oily, pretty thin and the pepper lingers. Interesting beer, pretty tasty too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: As black as tar, small and stable tanned head, smoke and peat on the otherwise fruity and leathery nose; solid sweet-bitter flavour, pretty soft and pretty full bodied; lingering drier smoky to coffeeish finish, completed by a fruity touch and an illusion of a hoppy bitternesd. Really good…
