Pours a jet black with little or no head. Aroma is smoky sausage and hoppy sweetness. Taste is smokey caramel, toffee and just goodness. Palate is good balaced. Good finish. Overall a pretty great beer.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2012 Sampled at 2010 GTMW - Pours black with a nice tan head. Smells smoky, but not over the top. Roasty, but not as pungent as expected. Taste is light roast with subtle smoke. I expected a little more smoke and meaty flavors, but got more lactose. This was a bit of a disappointment. 3.1 Tons of beef jerky on the nose, real smooth with a decent amount of roast. This works much better than the last time I’ve had it. This is totally different than last time.

Bottle shared with my son, Keith, poured a black body with medium tan head. Smokey aroma with wood/oak. Flavors of roasted malts, black licorice, and smoke. Nice.

Thanks JCB for sharing. Pours a viscous dark black allowing some light and rousing a one finger crisp tan head. Nose is smoky and meaty, caramelly sweet, big vanilla bean character, some chocolate and a mild showing of alcohol. Palate is rich and viscous with a mild astringency and wamring finish. Boss. On a side note this beer lost its carbonation remarkably quickly.

bottle pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is smokey with some wood notes. Flavor is strong roasted malt, licorice, with a solid subtle smoke lingering. Nice.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2010
Sampled this one @ CCB. This one is the perfect smoke beer with the right balance. Dark brown in color, light tan head. Smoked malts blend perfectly with the oak that at times might appear to be in hindsight. Not over the top, and a tad extra smoke would have been even better. Lot going on there, dark chocolate, roasted malts, oak flavors come mesh together adding to the smoked malts and occasional bacon-like goodness.

Got this one in a trade a brought it to Sourfest. Porter dark pour with tan head. Nose is roast malt and light smoke. Taste is sweet and woody and malty. Was pleasantly suprised at how the smoke was NOT overpowering. Very nice.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks, Jason. Pours nearly black with a shy head which needed some coaxing. Complex caramel nose with mild smoke and molasses/maple syrup notes. Full bodied and surprisingly fruity. Raisin and tawny port notes as well as some nuts. Lots going on here. Unique.

Pretty good, kinda tastes like a sweeter baltic porter. Not too much smoke at all. Drinkable.
