3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown to black color. Low carbonation. Aromas of smoke, chocolate, licorice, leather. Very little hop aroma. Medium bodied, rich flavor. Very balanced sweetness that fades in a controlled smokiness. Medium amount of residual bitterness with some some bright hoppy flavors in the end. This is a very well-composed beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Has a deep brown to black color with a huge, soapy, light brown head. Very carbonated. Smoked meat in the aroma along with oak, burned wood, coffee, rye bread and roasted malt. Lots of smoke in a pretty sweet flavor as well along with forest floor, meat, barbecue sauce, wild berries, camp fire and earth. Has a silky and soft mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Well smoked beer but is quite complex for the style with lots of other stuff going on in addition.

I found it very light and thin. Smoke was almost none existing. Was expecting much more taste and smoke.

Tap @ Amundsen. Clear black with some shimmer. Nice smoky aroma with almost same kind of saussage-y smokiness as the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen and hints of roasted coffee in the background. Roasted smoky flavour but a little thin
