Pours a deep brown color, topped with a medium sized beige colored head. Initially mild smokey aroma, bacon quality, that develops more chocolate and caramel notes later on. Also some mild roasted coffee presence. Bod is silky and creamy, mild caramel sweetness matched by very gentle roastiness. Not a big fan of smoked beers, but this one is simply great.

Andy_ (1000) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2015
500 ml bottle
Dark brown, almost black beer with beige big dense head leaving lacing. Aroma has coffee, smoked wood, toffee, licorice and earth. Flavor is herbal, licoricy and smokey. Palate is quite thin and foamy. Finish has quite strong bitterness. Aftertaste is coffeey acidic with herbal hops and smoked wood. Has elements of British porter but also very German with the smokiness and herbalness. A bit too thin and mild in aroma.
