Pours very dark and thick with a smallish head. Super smoky in both taste and smell. Very heavy on the palate, but extremely tasty.

IrishBoy (3882) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 7, 2012
500 ml bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is chocolate, a hint of anise, and light smoke. Black with and very small brown edge and a medium tan head. Flavor is smoke, chocolate, and hints of bitter, sweetness, roasted coffee, and light pepperiness. Actually a nice smoked without overpowering smokiness so that the rest of the nuances show through.

Opaque brown/black with a long-lasting head and light streaks of lace. Great brew for long sunless days and nights - roasted malt with a warming smoke taste that drops off little by little with each successive sip. A little dark fruit cake in the last of the palate, only to give way to a bitter burnt malt at the end. Late in the finish, alcohol provides appealing warmth.. Very smooth drinking, solid addition for anyone who likes a warming brew on a cold night.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2012
500mL bottle. Poured clear, deep brown with a very tall, well-retained smoked beige head. The aroma picked up a lot of meaty, salty, woodsy campfire smoke over seemingly soft chocolate and burnt black patent malts.. tobacco and espresso come through if you dig deep.. the smoke was the star, but it was really good. The flavor found tart licorice, campfire smoke, and burnt dark chocolate at the core, with salty smoke, burnt malts and peppery alcohol radiating through the rest of the drink.. finished salty, smoky, warm, and dark. Heavy-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. nice and meaty, but the smoke made it a little too sharp at times.. overall an excellent brew!

kryon (1470) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2012
Pours dark with medium off white head Aromas of rauch, medwurst, Creamy and sweet palate. Not the smoky taste that apoears in aroma. Taste is a mixed feeling btw dark fruits and medwurst. Good but pls remove the rauch

500. Pours jet black with nice oily sheen and a brief surge of froth but then no head, lace, or legs. Kind of disappointing appearance actually. Campfire, bear jerky, and soy sauce on the nose. Oily medium body. Campfire, jerky, and soy sauce on the mid-palate with a long salty campfire finish. This one is definitely a shoreline bonfire beer. It tastes like it wishes it were a shoreline bonfire.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Bottle thanks Fred. Pitch black pour, light tan foam. Smokey woody aroma, a few berries, light vanilla. Taste is smokey, bourbony notes a slightly sourish winey finish. Palate is rather heavy, stouty with good carbonation. Nice.
