Pours very dark brown with small off white head. Smoky aroma with coffee and dark chocolate. Slight sourness, which is a bit off putting. Has a dry bitterness. Fairly active carbonation. Not bad. Bruman (11) - SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 16, 2014
Had on tap at golf range. Beer pours with a creamy mocha colored head, nose is roast, smoke, coffee color is black with garnet tones, a really nice beer. Would have rated it higher but the bottled version was not as good as the legged version. AtronSeige (1707) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 21, 2013
Aroma: Roasted malt, smoke, dried fruit, medium-light sweetness, cherry,
Appearance: Dark brown body. Medium light-brown, long lasting head. Lacing.
Flavour: Medium-high smoke, roasted. Medium bitterness, medium sweetness. Cacao
Palate: Medium-full body. Soft but active carbonation. Dry finish, with a light lingering smoky. Slight astingnency
Overall: Well balanced overall. The flavour and aroma is definitely smoke orientated, but not overpoweringly smoky. An easy drinking beer that will go down great with a braai! Although not an everyday beer, I really enjoy this beer!
440 ml bottle, poured.
