ContemplateBeer (2040) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Aroma of smoked chocolate, caramel and waffle cone. Appearance is dark brown with no head. Flavor has a nice smoke/chocolate balance with slight waffle cone. I didnt pick up any orange. Palate is some oily and lightly bubbly. Good.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 5, 2014
Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Brune fonce, col pais crmeux beige. Arme offre un malt et chocolat modrs un peu trop lger sur une fin pointe grille et un caramel rappelant ce ct allemand. Palais est malt, lger grill avec une touche lactose, grains sec et un fini un peu sec qui semble plus me paratre dans un style dry stout que smoked. Malt ple cara et une pointe de houblons fleuris arrivent en toute fin de bouche. Franchement, je nai rien not en terme de fum. Est-ce que cette brasserie distribue aux US? faut croire que quasi toutes les notes sont bases en Europe.

Draught @ Christian Firtal, Odense. Pours hazy very dark brown with small light tan head. Sweet, dark aroma of fruit, malt, sherry barrel, and alcohol. Clear, vinous aroma, with notes of fruit and sherry barrel. Warming alcohol presence. Tastes more than its official ABV. Vinous finish. OK

Christian (13078) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2013
On tap at Christian Firtal. Brown with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, plum and peat smoke. Malty and fruity flavour, with a roasted note and too much peat...

This sounded promising, but I was disappointed. The biggest problem is that this beer is too sweet, which doesnt go well with the smoked malt. The honey and chocolate are a weird addition as well, they dont match. A shame.

b3shine (8369) - Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; a dark cola with light beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and chocolate with light smoke. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Average on the palate. Started better than it finished.
