Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2012
Black beer with a reddish hue. Beige head, big bubbles. Aroma of smoke, heavy smoke, gravy, bacon, light mocha. Smoky, malty flavour, light sourness, light dark bitter chocolate. Sweet smoky finish, like glazed bbq meat, smoked malts, light ash.
Nice! Quite refined, especially for such a hefty smoke aroma.
((Draught @ Moeder Lambic, Italian Beer Festival. Thanks for sharing, tderoeck!)

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2012
Draft @ Moeder Lambic Italian Beer Festival ’12. Brune foncée, col moyen laissant de grosses bulles en surface, huileux sur les rebords du verre. Arôme est malté, léger sur pointe de fumé et côté châtaigne. En bouche, malt prononcé grillé fumé avec une fin de bouche toffee. Profile houblon est présent en fin de bouche et vient sous le malt fumé pour donné cet côté pils. Le fumé reste présent mais en retrait par rapport à ce côté choco/cara qui prend un peu le dessus.

Opaque black beer. Very smoky nose. Neutral palate. Tangy malt but overwhelmed by very strong smoke. Much too much with smoke!

Nice clear dark chestnut with a big, fizzy, frothy, beige head. Aroma has blackberries, smoke, dark chocolate, hazelnuts. Medium carbonation, fairly dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has dark chocolate, good nuttiness, smoke is balanced. Light astringent. Fresh and drinkable.
