Had it Out of the bottle. Nice one finger toffee colored head. Very dark. Has a nice aroma of smoke, peat, and coffee. Tastes of charred wood and dark roast coffee. Very palatable leaves a lingering smoke taste. Reminds me of sitting next to a bonfire. Paired well with blackened tuna steaks.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell is heavy smoke, some beef jerky and bacon, campfire and a little hint chocolates. Pours black with a small brown head. Taste is smokey and dark with some roasted malts. Palate is surprisingly fresh and a little oily. Overall one of the better smoked beers I’ve had. Worth a try.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smokejumper left hand
Served 55 in a goblet
Aroma:bottle smells like dark colored smoke, phenol is very heavy smelling of burnt coffee and mild nutty chocolate with a slight hidden hint of caramel, esters in the hops come through as a grassy/wet hay. Smoke overwhelms but a hint of vanilla gets through.
Appearance:Hops, wheat, barley, yeast
Pitch black, caramel head with heavy lacing, next to no carbonation. Poured hard with huge head, settles down to very little head (less than half a finger).
Taste: Very malty taste, molasses taste sits heavy in your mouth along with the coffee on the sides of the tongue. Evolves to licorice and toffee
Palate:incredibly smooth, lighter than expected for its strong aroma, and a bit creamy. Medium high longevity. Slight change from creamy to oily feel after swallow. Feint bitter hop I found appealing as it is present in the middle of your tongue rather than the "sour" bitter on the tip of the tongue. Medium body with subtle carbonation. Alcohol is balanced - satisfying warmth and smooth.
O: True to style. Super heavy on the smoke. Would have liked to get a more distinct aroma or taste of the yeast (Earthy) but the smokey malt is just so overwhelming(ly delicious).

Strong smoke aroma from the start. Stays with you through the taste and palate. Make sure you let the temperature come up if your bringing it from the fridge. It is better at 55-60 degrees.

Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of rich smoke, german sausage, light chocolate and coffee, but yeah, smoked sausage and smoke... Taste is very balanced chocolate and vanilla sweet initially followed by balanced smoky coffee bitter finish. Quite nice. Body is medium, creamy and smooth with soft carbonation.
