Like drinking a kielbasa, one of the better smoked stouts out there. A nice smoke balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

@ Havregatan. Flaska frĺn Den Nordiske Ölhandel, Köpenhamn. Rostade/brända toner, hög sötma, charkuterier, rök, vanilj, choklad, fyllig. Lĺng söt avslutning med brända toner. Kanske lite för söt, men riktigt trevlig.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2014
Roasted malts, some smokey-aromas, dark choclate. Sweetish. Somewhat of a disappointment. Outperformed by both Mori and Skjaelfti.

Lectvay (115) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle from Rare Beer Club. Smoke comes through a little in the nose, but mostly chocolate and dark roasted aromas. Taste is really nice, with a rich, complex imperial stout profile and a smoky essence that is ever-present without being distracting or overwhelming. Tastefully balanced.

Black with creamy tan head. Great velvety full body with medium carbonation.

Aroma: roasted malt, smoke, and a hint of soy sauce.

Taste: carob, dark fruit, cocoa, roasted malt, toasted malts, brown bread, hints of silage, and a bit of alcohol warmth.

What a great beer. Dark almost black beer with a thick creamy dark tan head. Aroma is very pleasant full of chocolate and smoke. A big body beer that has a flight of flavors starts a little sweet then smokey with a malty and bitter finsh.

Bottle pours out a thick rich black topped with a nice tan head. Nose is roast malts smoke and some sweetness. Taste is as the nose with a nice thick rich malt a good smoke and a nice roast. I think this is the best smoke beer I have ever had.
