Bomber. Heavy smoke on the aroma with notes of dark chocolate and roasted malt. Pours black with a light, mocha colored head with decent retention and lacing. Rich dark chocolate flavors dominate to start with some roastiness permeating through. Smoke dominates the smooth finish to begin with, but give way to dark chocolate that lingers on the palate. Interesting beer, definitely only for those who enjoy smoke, but has a good balance between the smoke and other flavors.

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.

Roasted malts, some smokey-aromas, dark choclate. Sweetish. Somewhat of a disappointment. Outperformed by both Mori and Skjaelfti.
