From 004, this looks like a stout, smells like s stout and tastes as pretty darn good one. Smoky, chocolate, roast, medium strong and quite drinkable.

sebletitje (8663) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2016
Bouteille 33cl, BB 25.08.2016, batch#173. Brune, col crémeux beige. Arôme au nez plaisant offrant de belles notes fumées, léger houblonné noble en rétro-nasal - petit citronné. Un bouquet fruité sec avec des pointes d’herbacé se fait ressentir. Palais est léger, mettant bien l’accent sur le malt fumé avec un rétro de cara pâle, le tout est accompagné d’un profil fruité noir oscillant entre date et cerise noire. Fini est sec, finement citronné et avec encore une touche herbacée. L’aspect fumé reste correcte sans être surfait ni sans être trop timide. A environ 5.5%, reste facile à boire, dans une lignée des consœurs de Bamberg.

Alengrin (4077) - BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2016
I first heard about this new Estonian craft brewery at the BeerTemple in Amsterdam and got quite curious about it; this is their first beer I found, a smoked porter (in the current 5.4% ABV version, though the label states ’robust’ porter, which I tend to associate with a higher alcohol content, but anyway). Regular, medium thick, creamy, pale yellowish beige head thinning in the middle but retaining well on the edge; very dark mahogany brown colour, blackish in general appearance as expected, but still translucent on the edges. Classic but very appealing smoked porter aroma: smoked herring, roasted walnut but sweeter hazelnut as well, pipe tobacco, charcoal, burnt toast, leather, coffee grounds, biltong, beef stock, fainter hints of balsamico, dried fig, black pepper, dried flowers, vague salmiak, haemoglobin. Very little sweetness in the onset: instead I get a mixture of umami and (very softly) sourish, with impressions of olive, dried seaweed, elderberry and only after that, a very vague dried banana sweetishness pops up only to vanish again shortly after. Carbonation remains soft but still vivid enough to add body. Very thoroughly toasted malt bitterness in the middle, with that basic sourishness of roasted barley increasing towards the end, deeply bittering as in cold black coffee - in fact, this is going in a direction more reminiscent of a dry stout than any kind of porter. Then the smokiness is added, blending in well with the roasted bitterness and releasing some retronasal smoked herring aromas, along with late, spicy hop bitterness which dries the finish further - and still a juicy, nutty malt flavour creeps through, although the roasted and hoppy bitterness dominate and stick to the throat for a long time after swallowing. Alcohol remains completely hidden, as it should be in a beer of this ABV. Classic, juicy, well-made and flawless interpretation of this relatively young hybrid craft beer style - in any case promising and motivating to find out more about this brewery’s range.

MrHangover (3720) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown, blackish beer with a nice amount of beige head on top. Aroma is smokey and woody, slightly sugary and a bit malty fruity. Flavor is sweet, chocolate with a big smokey character in it, specially in the aftertaste. Nicely balanced, smoke not too overpowering and short, bittersweet finish. Nice.

Bottle. Dark brown in color, small tan head. Light campfire and dark malty and bready notes in aroma. Light bitter and some Smokey notes in taste. Soft and pleasant. Some mild rubber and hints of burnt wood in aftertaste, mild on the whole but somehow I seem to like this one.

mikkos (306) - FINLAND - SEP 18, 2015
Dark ruby beer with a small beige head. Aroma is quite nice with roasted and bready malts, brown sugar and sugary tones, sweet chocolate and coffee, a bit smokey, hint of citrusy fruity hops. Taste is a bit bland with smokey malts, rye bread, coffee and chocolate, some fruity hoppiness. A bit watery and metallic, but not unpleasantly so. Finishes a bit too fast and no real bitterness there either. Okay beer though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
