Bottle. Dark brown, almost black color, tan head. Very nice smell of tobacco, smoked plums and bacon, which is however not present in aroma. Aroma is smoked, but slightly bland and watery. Not bad, but not great either. Emelie (111) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2017
Doft: kraftig rökdoft, sherry, metall, salami, ek.
Smak: ekrökig först sen chark, aningen coca-cola men mer besk än söt, aningen citron.

En helt fin øl der smager tilpas af røg, ikke for meget, men det passer ikke helt porteren RaijinSen (384) - POLAND - MAY 2, 2017
Pours deep dark colour with a decent, tan head. Aroma of smoke that tends to revolve around peated notes somewhat, soy sauce, a touch of chocolate - not bad but with more intensity expected. The taste brings the same notes packed in a concoction suffering from a body deficiency syndrome. The beer is quite allright but it definitely doesn’t live up to expectations.
