2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours a clear and dark copper beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt, weak smoke and weak peat. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is smoke. Overall a beer below average, and out of balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Somewhat clean copper body with creamy beige head. Dry hops, dough, twigs, carton (but not in a bad way) and a nice rich yet not punchy smokey base. Light smokey taste as well. It’s just not my kind of thing. (75cl bottle at Deanso’s tasting)

Bottle at a Den Haag RB tasting. Poured reddish brown with a big frothy off white head. A rich smoky aroma but not overpowering. The flavour is smoky woody malty with coffee and spicy liqourice on the palate. A truly hand crafted ale.

Bottle. Dark cola with a tanned head. Very nice balanced smoke aroma alongside with woody notes and a nice malty backbone. Flavor is bittersweet with a lot of smoke present. The balance in this beer is amazing. Medium bodied and carbo. Great!
