3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. [thank you sk8viking].
Pours blackish with a clear red-ness around the edges. A small creamy dark beige head settles nicely on top, before quickly becoming a thin film. Aroma is quite sweet, with a clear smoky edge. There are roasted caramel, a little coffee, some distant cherries as well. Quite high carbonation, making the beer relatively fresh. Flavour is great! There is some mild roasted tones, a good deal of chocolate, and only after a little while, the smokyness hits me - slow-burning. A nice well-rounded bitterness rounds it up nicely. A really great brew!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Reddish brown coloured. Clear. Has a light brown head. Light smoked, maltish and chocolatish aroma. Is malty, light spiced and light roasted in the flavour. Not much smoke to be noticed. Is thin bodied but yet smooth. Dies quickly on the palate. Has to draw a few points, because the smoke character imo is too vague.
