Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Very rare kind of beer for Belgium. Definately smoky and burnt, strong coffee aroma. Light bitterness that stays pretty long. Nice one but not too spectacular.

MaartenRF10 (1776) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2013
Dark brown, tan head. Wouldn’t call this smoked. Just porter would have been fine. Good combo of hop bitterness and roasted malts, with coffee and some chocolate.

Bottle. Dark black pour with brownish head. Great aroma with smoked malts and coffee. A lot of dark chocolate in the taste with some smoked hints, coffee and some malts. The dark chocolate hints are grand. Very nice surprise. Bought it at a local supermarket. I know what I’m buying the next time.

Bottle from bieresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a tar black body with a large creamy off-white head, very good looking. Nose is leather, smoke, tar, licorice, hints of brown bread and chocolate. Elegant. Taste is cured meat, licorice, leather, hints of tar, grassy herbs and faint metal. Slick mouthfeel. Medium to full body and carbonation. A very nice smoked porter from Viven.
