esp0r (1890) - NORWAY - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle @ Ölrepubliken shared with Daje. Black, no head. Some lacings on glass, so it’s not ugly :) Smells of bacon, smoke, burned wood and some foot sweat. Taste is egg and bacon. Some sweetness. Too much smoke i’m afraid. Oily feel. Finish is not very hoppy.

Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2011
33Cl. Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Ohh.. Have had my eyes on this since the first ratings ticked in years back. Pours black with a small creamy beige head. Sweet and hard roasted malts with a touch of smoke, vanilla and chocolate. Smooth and full bodied. Dry roasted end. Very nice.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2011
Bottle from the LCBO. Didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Wonderful depth and flavour, smoky but not overwhelmingly so, with a balanced malt and bitter notes that made it incredibly drinkable in spite of the its strong characteristics. Great.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle from LCBO store 575. A very dark motor oil liquid decants in my goblet, and is topped with a respectable two finger mocha froth, leaving some pretty webbing on the glass. Roasted coffee bean nose hints at smoke, vanilla, leather, and licorice. Sweet and malty, with smoke and a marked hop bitterness to perfectly balance. Alcohol not really detectable in the full body and velvety finish. Great effort!

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a big and dense cappuccino colored head. Sweet and ashy aroma with notes of nuts, caramel, smoke Taste of chocolate, caramel, sweet malt, roasted malt and licorice. Easy drinkable, but maybe a tad too sweet..

Plovmand (6303) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2011
Bottle. It pours pitch black with a creamy longlasting tan head. The aroma is hard roasted with notes of tar and smoke and has a deep lying solid caramel base. Chocolate and light coffee notes. The flavour is sweet chocolate, smoke, hard roasted malt, tobacco and ends up quite sweet and a bit cloying.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours black. Chocolate, smoke, licorice and burnt roasted malt on the nose. Flavour is extremely smoky, with iodine, oak and roasted malt. Too much iodine and smoke - doesn’t seem like it’s as good as it should be, based on other ratings and descriptions. Still good though.
