3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear dark amber body with a beige creamy head; Very sweet malt syrup nose, backed by a light fruity touch; Very sweet body, actually quite spicy, biting carbonation; Long sweet finish, spicy but I am not sure where it comes from, very lightly smoked aroma. This beer could be way way better.

Tried it out about a year ago. It kind of smelled like "the great outdoors’" and by that I mean mud and a hint of campfire. I agree with the previous reviews, I definitely remember this beer being "interesting" - but I definitely don’t remember it being good. Might have to re-rate in the future now that I’ve further developed my palate and might appreciate the flavor profile and high alcohol content more.

Pours a deep dark mahogany, with a an inch of sticky light beige head. The aroma is sweet and smokey, very smokey, sweet carmalized notes. The flavour is also very smoked, carmalized, sweet, nutty. A long smokey sweet finish. I find the complexity kind of ineffable. I like it, big, solid brew.

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark, slightly orangey brown with large light tan head with good retention. Aroma is quite smoky and peaty with some sweet fruit underneath. Candied sugar and vinous fruit more apparent in taste, but still lots of peat and smoke. Alcohol dangerously subtle. Quite unusual - not something I’d drink in volume (and good thing given the ABV) but impresses all the same.

Deep mahogany colour with a frothy off white head and clinging lace. Roasted, smoked malt aroma. Quite a peaty, earthy seaweed influence. Smoked seaweed roasted damp, dirty campfire flavour. Syrup texture. Overall very tasty but a weird brew.

Copper pour, tan head. The aroma really hits you -> SMOKE. Dry fruits and peaty taste ...VERY sweet. A unique beer but not something I would look for again. The taste lacks the punch of the aroma...

500ml bottle shared at home. Pours dark brown with A LOT of floaters! Nice white head saves it from getting a 2 for appearance. Big smokey aromas, boozy notes, as you might expect from something this strong, then caramelized orange and burnt raisins. Nutty too. Big beer. Full-bodied, creamy texture, good chewy finish that you need to think about for a bit before opening something else, or passing out.

Dank, opaque, brown/orange pour with minimal head that leaves a thin ring of lace.
Antiseptic smoke is the first thought that comes to mind of the nose. You can feel complexity under that weird medicinal campfire smell but it can’t quite break free. There’s something decidedly peaty about it too...scotchy. Maybe that’s where the hospital note is coming from.
That complexity breaks free all over the palate. The smoke is mixed with some spice and cooked fruit, integrated beautifully. There’s a nice full mouth feel with dangerously well hidden alcohol.

Pours a cloudy mahogany with a tan head. The smell is big sweet fruit, charcoal, peat, campfire. The taste is vinous, tart, charcoal, peat, dry and fruity aftertaste. Medium body and mild carbonation.

Bu en bouteille de 50cl, couleur noire et très peu de mousse. une odeur de feutre forte et un côté cuir. En bouche la tourbe prend la bouche et reste très trop ? en longueur...
