Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of smoke, some chocolate, some spicy hints. Tastes of chocolate, smoke, pepper, spicy, some nice roasty elements as the beer warms, and a dry, oaky finish.

A: The pour is pretty much black with a very small mocha colored head. S: The roasted malts are really the first thing to hit me, but the smoke is not too far behind. There seems to be a bit of a lactose or vanilla thing going on, too. Some nice chocolate aroma is also present. T: Lots and lots of roasted malts here. A good chocolate and coffee flavor along with just a bit of bitterness. The smoke is quite pronounced as you might expect. M: The body is medium with quite a low level of carbonation. D: Despite being pretty smokey, I actually thought this was good and had enough other flavors going on.

From notes. First reviewed 2/23/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tasting glass. This is pitch black with only slightly less ominous dark brown edges. Not much head, nor does it retain well or leave any lace. The aroma is darkly roasted and burnt malts, smoke, and a little coffee and dark chocolate act as support. Up front the flavor is sweet and roasted for a second, with dark chocolate and heavily roasted malt leading the way. Molasses, some cocoa and fruity esters, and then some smoke. A light earthy or spicy hop aroma create a bitter finish. This actually has a body on the light side of medium, although there is a creamy side to the carbonation. The smoke does not dominate, which I appreciated. Overall this is another solid beer from a great brewery. I do not tend to go after the smoked beers, but I enjoyed this one.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle, 22oz, at RBNAG-11. An unclear, brown beer topped by a small, light beige head. Ham-like notes in the aroma, roasted, and with some caramel and dried fruits. Some bitterness towards the end of the flavor, with ham, roasted notes, caramel and dried fruits. Full body. A bit too much on the ham-side this one, sort of unusual, and also quite nice. 111015
