I drank this a few times last year. I like it a lot but I can’t rave about it. This year I picked it up again and I must say it’s an odd bird, and of course that’s a good thing. There’s a bit of chocolate in the aroma but most roasted coffee and a lot of smoke. Palate is good but I think it could work better with less carbonation. Taste is very nice though, but not a standout for me. A bit boring but also nice in that way, if this we’re to be my favourite style or something, it exudes a classic quality. Very dry and subtle, with an understated sweetness and very bitter smoky lengthy finish. A nice beer to savour if in the mood, but by no means a thirst quencher.

Las notas ahumadas son intensas. Posteriormente se pueden percibir el café, chocolate, madera y notas a caramelo Su color es negro, cuerpo redondo, carbonatacion baja, corona de espuma abundante de media retención. En boca es ahumada, torrefacta y ligeramente dulce. Al paladar es algo compleja y a la vez equilibrada. Después de las notas ahumadas, se percibe chocolate, café, madera y caramelo. En resumen creo que es una cerveza muy bien elaborada y que se disfruta bastante.

Gluepot (398) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2016
On tap at the ChurchKey, DC. A thin light tan head on a near black body. A big rich nose with smoke, ripe berries, a touch of cream caramel and booze. The smoked malt leads the taste profile, with toffee, some bitter coffee, dark berries and that boozy warmth. A very dense rich body. Taste thins out relatively quickly though.

Poured deep dark brown with a tight beige head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roast malt. Full. Smooth body, flavour as the aroma, add some alcohol soaked raisins; lovely balance.

gegwilson (3132) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Pours pitch black with a thin beige head. Nice peat and bacon smoke aroma. The taste has moderate spice with plenty of earthy peat and smoke. Some bacon too and a hint of coffee. Rich and tasty.

This is an insanely smokey beer, far more than I can tolerate. I like Alaskan Smoked, I’m a fan of most smoked beers, but this is far too aggressive. Tried with Jess at Max and Joes in Omaha’s beer week.

Bill Becker (793) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours a pitch black with an inch of tannish foam. Smells smokey as hell with side notes of bitter chocolate and coffee. Smokey, lots of roasted malt, bitter (dark) chocolate, toffee, not much of a coffee flavour. Pretty boozy. Full bodied imho but superbly smooth on my palate. Like a bumped up Alaskan Smoked Porter. I suppose that explains my love for it.

Completely black with no head. Complex tastes smoke, chocolate, coffee, chili and oak. Heavy-medium body, smooth carbonation, and a finish of smoky chocolate. Not too much smoke, but tastes like it has been aged
