laiti (5407) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Draught @ Mikkeller & Friends. Aroma is rather light with some toffee and slight smoky tones. Flavour has toffee, smoke notes, some grilled meat and sweetish tones. Like Schlenkerla Urbock, but not that smoky. And like urbock, this becames somewhat sticky after some sips, which reduces drinkability.

ineedbeer (618) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 28, 2014
2012 bottle based on the stamp in the wax; 8.2% ABV. Some rust along cap, but there was a hiss when it opened. Aroma has a moderate smoke character, but ii is not completely overwhelming. Light chocolate character is noticeable with some faint dark fruit character. Pours dark brown, almost black but not quite completely opaque along the edges. Fairly large, moderately thick, light mocha head that exhibits pretty good retention. Light lacing and fairly small legs. Flavor has a nice sweetness that goes well with the moderate chocolate notes that are upfront. Light roast mid palate helps welcome in a medium light smoke character that lingers a bit in the finish with some dark chocolate. Light dark fruit notes of plum, prune and fig along with some faint dark caramel and toffee notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation and has a nice silky, creaminess to it. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall a very nice smoked beer that has aged surprisingly well. The smoke character doesn’t overwhelm the underlying beer so the rich chocolate notes, dark fruit and caramel have a chance to show through.
