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.

Moebbels (316) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Pitch black body with a thick well-lasting light tan head. Nose has chokolate, roasted malts, smoke and some sourness. Taste is mild and soft with a light dryness on the finish. Carbonation is very soft and the palate is somewhat watery. This was excellent at first, but after a while started to feel diluted and watery. Go figure.

Dark brown colour with brownish head on top, leaves lots of lacing after every sip. Aroma gives out slightly smoked roasted malts and some fruits as well. Surprisingly fruity taste, with smoked malts in the end. Light body and medium carbonation. Decent porter.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2013
Black body, small beige head. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate, slightly roasted. The taste is immediately bitter and with a very nice fluffy palate. The finish is not too long or bitter, otherwise a really nice beer on a cold dark winter night.
