2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 6.5%. Aroma is smoked wood, roasted barley and some ham with minimal hops. Flavor is smoked woods with muted ham, tar and some yeastiness. Aftertaste is roasted barley with some plastic. This is one of the top brews from stapa Iíve had, the yeastiness is too basic though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl bottle (6.5%). Batch #497. BBE 01.11.2013.
Pours deep dark red, almost black color with a large off-white head. Some mild smoke is the first thing on the nose, dry and a bit roasty malts, dark chocolate and some cocoa. Flavor is a bit of a letdown, some vegetables, smoky malts and mild chocolaty coffee notes. A bit of tar also. Not very pleasant taste, too messy and home brewish. Medium bodied, a bit creamy palate with a somewhat bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a white small creamy head. Aroma of smoked malts, pungent wood, some roastiness and berries. Flavour of caramel, smoked malts, metals, unpleasant berriness, strong dough-like yeastiness and grassy notes. Some vegetable-like notes when it warms up. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and berryish, musty, malty finish. Alcohol comes through. Reminds me of a homebrew really. Far from proper smoked beers.

Very nice smoked beer. Lots of smoke, hints of whiskey-like things in the palate and unique touch of rye. Stadin Panimo rules ok!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, batch #497. Pours dark brown in color with a small tan head. Roasted notes, some burnt rubber as well in aroma, the rye would be contributing for that I guess. Taste has got more of smokey tones though, a bit of some sweeter notes are there as well, a bit of chocolate that would be, but as said they are a bit in the background of them smoked notes. Smooth mouthfeel and is actually quite nice towards the end with nice smokey and some light cocoa powder notes in aftertaste.
