Lele (353) - Padova, ITALY - DEC 21, 2015
Birra che inizia benissimo e finisce malissimo. L’aspetto è bello, se non fosse per eccessivi lieviti in sospensione. Al naso è veramente molto gradevole, con sentori di affumicato (speck), cacao, caffè, liquirizia. In bocca inizia con questi sentori, ma da subito viene anche un amaro tra l’erbaceo e il troppo tostato che stona un po’ con il resto e che soprattutto lascia una cattiva sensazione in bocca. Peccato!

wiedrzensky (695) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours is dark with thick brown head. Aroma of smoked malts, dark chocolate, smoked cheese, bacon, light coffee, cigar, tobacco. Taste is light sweet, light to moderate bitter, coffee bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, long coffee bittery finish. Overally very well ballanced, just the right amount of smokey notes, not very tarty, alcohol well hidden.

Stoned99 (1012) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2015
341ml Bottle from Parker Pie. Aroma: as expected lots of bacon in the nose, roasted malt and coffee. App: pitch dark, small brown head little retention. Taste and palate: medium to full body, smooth, loads of bacon and roasted toast in mouth, medium dry bitter finish. Overall: not my favorite style but this is a good smoked beer. Well blended with coffee. Way better warmer.

Yeah, so this is really good. Smokey darkey goodness. Creamy beige head, black body. Not my type of beer but thoroughly enjoyed.

Panzerfaust (778) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 16, 2015
330 ml bottle from Gallagher’s Beer World/El Irlandés. Pours a very dark, jet black color with a small but dense, creamy khakhi head that lingers as a 2mm. film. Aroma is intensely smokey even when cold. Notes of bacon, peat, roast beef, pork sausages, Wagyu jerky and beechwood. Secondary notes come from coffee, tabacco, cigar smoke, licorice and pure cacao. Smokiness dominates and overwhelms the rest though it still smells somewhat stouty. After warming, you get more coffee character. Fantastic! Taste is strong, bold and powerfully smokey. Roasty bitterness, with sweetness attenuated and replaced by loads of burnt flavors. Quite a lot of coffee flavors towards the finish. Some cacao and dark bitter chocolate nuances. Not extremely complex, but two-faced and characterful with the smoke-coffee combination. Smooth, creamy texture, big body. The oats are clear in the mouthfeel. Smokey aftertaste as it’s logical. Same aftertaste as after eating BBQ’ed tenderloin. Overall this is a great, vehement Smoked Stout that should help anyone in need of a smoke-fix.

Gurthnar (4531) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle. Pitch colour and brown head, moderate duration. Aroma quite strong hoppiness in the first moment, then phenolic and herbal character appears, not unsimillar to our local herbal liquor Demänovka. Rich and complex with hops definitely playing a key role here. The rich maltiness is balanced by it to give a rather bitter impression without being overly roasty. Malty side is more focused on smokiness, which in turn also is not overpowering, but soft. Easy drinking and well attenuated. The strange phenolish character is present also, may come from strange hops selection. Gives Demänovka impression, which is not something all would appreciate, but I do. Clean coffee flavour appears in late late finish, after you thought everything is already going away. Complex and rewarding brew.

dinkle50 (1265) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Jet black pour with an espresso head. Aroma of smoked meats. A little dankness and some campfire. Huge, full mouth. Super bitter, very dry finish. Tons of bitter roasted grains. A little dark chocolate and hints of smoke. A lot going on and it doesn’t completely go together. Lace present.

Acid303 (654) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - NOV 4, 2015
33cl bottle, served in Snifter. Pours black with small tan head. Aroma is smoke, coffee, chocolate and biscuit. The flavour has the same elements, and the first sip is almost bacon-like. After that, the thing is more or less as described above. The palate is mostly coffee bitterness and heavy dark malts. Full mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice smoked beer.

Bottle from cervezalandia maybe? Color is super dark. Head is thin and beige. Body is medium. Taste is light salty, light to medium sweet, medium bitter. Aroma is nutty, smoke, meat, salt, pepper, coffee. Quite strange but interesting.

ej (1191) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle. Pours a jet black body with a dark tanned, medium sized head. Lovely aroma of smoked malts, roasted malts, caramel and coffee. Taste is moderate bitter with rich roasty flavor. Smoked malts mix in making for a fairly complex taste. Lingering dark roasted coffee notes. Different from the original alltho it has alot of the same qualities as well. Medium body and soft to avg co2 levels.
