3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from Bierkompass. Black, no head, aroma of roasted malts and lots of coffee. Flavours of coffee dominate, shy chocolatey hints, there’s hardly any smoke flavours detectable. Because of the name I was looking forward to a very smoky beer - however, this was a very solid stout-like brew.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Darkest black with treacley tan head. Greasy Applewood smoked creamy nose, Imperial and inviting. Bustling thick mouthfeel expands to a weird soapy clamouring greasiness. Silky and a little sickening. Finish is bacony and bitter coffee itch. Not as good as I remembered or it could have been.
