Pours a deep brown in colour with a tan head. The smokiness of the peated malts is matched by a smooth taste of toffee, caramel and dark fruits.

robinvboyer (4141) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle from the lcbo. Jet black pour, small beige head. Aroma is smoky, but subtle, and inviting. Not a slap innthe face withna charred log. Some nice roasted malts, soft cocoa, and coffee. Malts have hints of sweetness, and soy with some ripe fruit. Smoke rounds everything out softly with a subtle bitterness and roasty finish.

jjsint (2333) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Cherry Hinton Road. Purplish black and opaque. The small tan head disappears quickly. Gentle wood smoke sits alongside roasted coffee in the aroma. The taste is dominated by the sweet/savoury richness of the smoked malt. A bit of grainy bitterness in the finish. Thin body. It’s pretty good but not as a,along as if hoped it would be.

The beet pours a solid coca-cola colour with a very thin creamy brown head which lingers and laces well. The aroma is peat wood, roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is well balanced between a smoked malt flavour, coffee, and caramel notes. Tastes great!

lesifflebiere (1670) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Liquide brun-noir mi-épais, assorti d’une petite couronne de mousse couleur cacao. Nez de bois, de grains de café moulus et de chocolat noir. Les arômes en bouche sont dans les mêmes tons, chocolat et café, avec du fumé très subtil en fin de gorgée. Le tout est velouté, texturé, bien fait et balancé, avec une pointe d’amertume en clôture. Invitante et relativement accessible.
