3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA via Winnipeg. Dense black colour, creamy coffee foam head that dissipates quickly except at the edges. Aroma is mellow with burnt malt and a faint campfire cinder. Smoke comes through on the first sip, like a smoked gouda, with a sweetness and alcohol burn on the finish. Way to go Iceland.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice black body with a brown head that had mild retention and good lace. a light bodied, low viscosity look to it. Aroma had good chocolate malts some coffee and a decent but mild smoke note. Flavor was similar to it. A well balanced beer. Alcohol seemed well hidden. Finish was slightly dry. A good mouth-feel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Big thanks to skinnyviking! Richly dark tan head that doesn’t last long, and nearly black hue with brown edging. Very roasty aroma with chocolate and smoked peat. Flavor has very dark bittersweet chocolate, light earth and peat. Less smokey in the flavor, but really nice. Medium body and finishes roasted and dry. Nice brew!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Piscator34! Dark black pour, dark brown and quickly dissipating carbonation and a slightly mellow smoky peat aroma. Flavor was very earthy, creamy roasted dark malts, lactose, and finished with an aftertaste of semisweet chocolate chips and plenty of campfire smoke. Not a smoked beer for begginers, but unique and tasty nonetheless. Really glad I got to try this

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

Pours black like oil with khaki head. Smells of roasted malt, smoked malt, and some raw cocoa; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more smoke.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
16.9 oz bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium tan head with good retention. Aroma initially consists of dough and Whoppers before the smokiness comes through. Taste is smoky and chocolatey and ends on a bitter note. Mouthfeel is oily and the carbonation is medium to soft. Nice one.

Good but pls remove the rauch
