Bottle. The pour was a very dark murky brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy light brown head that dissipated slowly into just a few puddles and a ring of residue, leaving behind some really good sheets of lace.
The aroma was right of front with a strong smoke odor and a moderate burnt dark bread malt, a light resin hop and a meaty yeast. It also had decently strong notes of dark chocolate, a dark roasted coffee and a hint of wood.
The taste was smoky and mildly sweet with a hint of chocolate at first and then became moderately bitter and quite roasty with a nice dose of coffee and had a pronounced smoky finish. The flavor lasted a really long time after the swallow, being mostly of chocolate and coffee but having a strong smoky ending.
Mouthfeel was right between medium and full in body with the texture being nice and creamy yet just a little dry and having a mild carbonation.
Overall an impressive smoked beer that had a ton of flavor with a very nice blending of the smoke, so it did not become too overpowering on the taste buds.

W aromacie delikatne nuty wędzonego drewna, troche kawy i czekolady, w smaku powtorka aromatu, finisz popiołowy. Srednie, jednak u nas się wędzi lepiej. WillemsUrenkel (1818) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2017
0,65 l bottle from Just in Beer, Groningen. 2013 version. Pours out jet black. One finger beige head. Intensive fruity with a lot of smoke and some bacon one the nose. Taste starts well balanced between porterlike fruitieness, choco and increasing smoke. No real carbonation as expected. Nice one.

Wersja 2013. W zapachu czekolada, palone słody, nuty drewniane, karmel, wędzonka jest w moim odczuciu bardzo delikatna. W smaku sporo karmelu, palone słody, wędzona papryka. Ogólnie całkiem przyzwoite piwo, ale niewiele poza tym. Franzen (590) - SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2017
