deyholla (7477) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle at the Copenhagen beer festival. Poured a clear brown with an off-white head. Aroma consisted of malts and a bit of bitterness. Flavor was oddly salty, perhaps smoky? Lots of malts present as well.

Bottle at KØ09. Mild moldy aroma, some vanilla. Almost black colour, red shine. Seems clear. Almost no head. The flavour is powerful and roasted. A hint of smoke, and a faint hint of farty earth. Nice mouthfeel. Hint of smoke.

bierkoning (10800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle @ home. Deep dark brown color. Vinous aroma with grapes and licorice. Full bodied. Sweet alcoholic flavor with rye bread, vinous notes, raisin, juniper and licorice. Dried fruit. Full of flavor, but also loads of alcohol. And where is the smoke? Sticky mouthfeel.

Picked this up at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. I couldn’t believe that they actually had this beer! There is this Alaskan eskimo-type guy on the front of on the bottle. He looks pretty cold. Nice thin head sitting on top that fades away eventually. Not black in color, but a very dark brown in color. Nice sweet aroma. It is a bit misleading. You smell the sweet aroma with the alcohol, but you don’t smell the smoke or wood. Slight smoke aroma comes through as the beer warms up. VERY creamy palate. Nice sublte smoky flavor. Pretty good beer. Leather subtle flavor as well. Overall, pretty good smoked. Nice smoky subtle flavor with an extremely creamy beer.

CBF09. 50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown, golden and deep amber with a small white head. Roasted malty, yeasty and light spiced aroma. Flavour is the same with a light bitterness and roasted acidity. Bitter and roasted finish with a light alchol warmth.

Almost totally black colour. Smoke in the aroma along with well roasted malt and dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. Very pleasant rather sweet flavour of smoke, roasted malt, liquorice and dark fruits.
