Go surly band wagon... I believe iíve had a majority of their didnít beers, but I think my favorite is pentagram and even that is sub par. This tastes like a bonfire threw up in your mouth, and not in a good way. Iíve tried this twice and right the same thing, not worth the money.

There is nothing wrong with the appearance or aroma, but this could be the most disgusting beer ever made. At a beer tasting, 9 out of 10 tasters considered this beer the worst beer ever made. The only discussion over this beer was what purpose it could serve. Possible solutions are beer batter, base for BBQ sauce, or marinade.

MrHangover (2792) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, thnx to Secret Summer Santa, shared with the crew. Pours a pitch black beer without any head on top. The little amount that is there, is forced by pouring aggresively. No light shining trough this beer. Aroma is smoke, barbecue, caramel, malts and vanilla. Flavor is sweet with a dash of smoke in the background, making it feel very subtle and easy going. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but that must be the lager influences I guess. Touches of vanilla and raisins in the very finish of the flavor. Very well crafted, balanced brew! Great!

Bottle courtesy of MrHangover to celebrate Deansoís 4000íth rating! Poured a deep mahogany colour with a frothy tan head. The aroma is fruit, syrup and caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a creamy liqourice alcohol palate. Medium bodied with low carbonation and an oily texture. A lager, someone is having a laff :-) A really superb beer!

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 2. Pours dark brown with a creamy, tan head. Classic rauchbier nose, all smoked ham and minerals. Medium sweet flavor with robust smoked malts, candied ham, caramel sugars. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with good smokiness and further candied ham. Great stuff.

BelgianBeerGal (3247) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2013
2010 bottle with a freakiní wax seal on a capped bottle! This is exactly what I guessed: a smoke Baltic porter. Great base beer with the smoke adding some complexity. I didnít really get much from the barrel treatment but the base beer was great. Also, no clue that this hovered around 9.5 ABV. Very well made.
