3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at SB. Pours an opaque inky black with a loose thin tan head that goes away pretty quickly. Big sweet bourbony nose, lots of oak and vanilla and apricots with some sweet dark chocolate and campfire hiding under that. Heavy thick body with soft carb. Nice complex sweet dark chocolate, oak, vanilla, apricot, and campfire mid palate--overly sweet, but other than that, there’s nice balance and some layers here. Partly imbalanced, partly balanced...leave it to the Bruery.

Glad to get my hands on this one. Even better as expected. The smokiness is very faint, and also the booze isn’t overwhelming the wood and spices in this one.

Bottle sampled at ZEBF ’15. Pours near black with a ring tan head. Aroma of massive wood, rubber, dark chocolate, caramel and molasses. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter, with the smoke only coming out in the finish but then growing and growing before you take another sip. Light full bodied with soft carbonation.

Bigger tasting at Ronny’s flat, Copenhagen. Opaque black - brown beer, tidy tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Mellow dark malts, trace of paint like ester. Some alcohol heat but not too much considering. Dry cocoa. Modest smoke. Little fruity bourbon. Smooth airy finish. Fairly easy going for it’s abv.
