Aroma is roasted malts and slight smoked. Flavour is dry malty, smoked and goes into a good and decent bitterness in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Københavnske Øldage. Dark hazy brown, creamy head. Smokey licorice aroma. Dryish with quite strong flavour of woody smoke. Medium sweet with full body. The high alcohol sines through, but doesn’t disturb, instead it adds complexity. Very good smoke ale!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black color, with a huge rocky head, brownish. There is an initial aroma of smoke and dark malts, followed by light phenol and liquorice. Good body strength and structure, with an excellent chocolate flavor nicely corrected by a delicate smoke touch; it has a fair sweetness level that balances the dark flavors; in the end there is a hint of roasted malts and liquorice, not intrusive; the bitterness is quite strong, and the alcohol produces a pleasant warmth. Very good beer.
