On tap at Apex, pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of light smoke and medium roasted malt – not too smoky. Flavour of lightly ashy smoke, roasted malt and some dry cocoa. Full-bodied, with a tasteful amount of smoke. Very solid stuff.

Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma has chocolate, coffee, a hint of peat smoke and some citrus hop. Dry and roasted, licorice dominated, flavour with C-hop bitterness and a slight hint of peat adding complexity.
I didn’t know Barack was this bitter, but I’ll take Xbeeriment’s word for it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Ølbutikken, Cph (release).
Pours redish black with a nice, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has nice, dark chocolate, soft smoke and lightly roasted. Some hops peep through. Low carbonation with a slightly thin and watery feel. Flavour is very nice, though it is very dry. Lots of ashes, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Some sugary sweetness that tries to balance the ashy dryness, but never really succeeds. Good, but a tad unbalanced.
