Bottle 355ml @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, alcohol and oak. Taste is very intense malty, sweet and bitter with a very long aftertaste. Texture is oily with flat carbonation.

baraciisch (3030) - California, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Pours a deep black in color with an almost orange tan head.... Aroma is oak and burnt malts.... Flavor is very sweet up front, but gives way to an almost bitter and painful finish.... Syrupy consistency, reminds me of motor oil, finish kinda tastes like it too.. Not the best.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2010
This beer pours a deep brown with no head. The aroma is burnt coffers, roasted coffee, heavy dark chocolate, with a sting alcohol burn. The mouthfeel is sticky, super heavy and extremely bitter with burnt coffee, and dark chocolate. This was obviously heavy on the alcohol! The flavors and smell were awesome hut the strong alcohol really hits the palate and nose hard. Cheers!

Thank you Enzofan. Mahogany pour with no head or carbonation. Dark fruit and caramel/toffee on the nose. Not much hop presence in aroma. Smoke, alcohol, caramel, and oak dominate the flavor. Reminds me of cognac. Medium/full mouthfeel. A bit of heat in the finish. Very, very drinkable for 32% abv. Enjoyable, and I would love to have another.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2010
[3478-20101113] Bottle. Bandaid boozy wooden barrel malt aroma has a lot of smoke. Hazy, dark brown body with no head and thick legs. Hot smokey peppers and ash flavour has a long smokey aftertaste. Full body is all booze. HOLY CRAP this is spicy -- more like whiskey, not beer.

pootzboy (1694) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle: Pours an opaque black no cap. Aroma is intense peat smoke, oaky and roasty, some tobacco and licorice. This is rich and oily to the palate...a lot like some wild herbal liquer with smokey presense. Flavor: Peat smoke predominates...oily mouth feel....woody, some sweetness, alcohol hidden - only shows up as a salty side note, medicinal, licorice, tar...figging wild stuff. Not an every day drink for me....too much smoke taste

I had this beer at Churchills in San Marcos during the New Brew Thursday 1st Anniversary Party. The first flavor that hit me was salty followed shortly by overcooked bacon. This beer wasnt for me
