Dark brown, almost black. Roasted smell, some cacao and peat smoke. Smokey taste but very well balanced. Sweet caramel, roasted malt and chocolate. Imperial stout-ish with a layer of smoke. Slight bitter, smoky finish. Really good. nearbeer (5516) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Opaque ebony pour with a thin film of cream on top. Aroma of smoky char, espresso, soy and a hint of caramel. Flavor has caramel, smoke with some bits of lean meat, soy, charred wood and a touch of apple. Medium-heavy body has too much explosive fizz but a pretty nice balance.

Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Dark roast nose, with smooth chocolate, berries, and licorice; also some phenolic notes with smoked fish and charred wood. Deep dark brown color with translucent edges. Flavors of boozy dark fruit, berries, burnt malt, fish oil, and soy sauce. Medium-heavy body, with a full, creamy feeling, a bit oily even, and lightly warming on the tongue. Very interesting nose and unusual flavors for a smoked beer. HPDalen (376) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2016
Burnt coffee and chocolate aroma. Pours black with a tan head. Quite bitter taste, but nicely balanced. Smoke, coffee and dark chocolate. Feels rich and creamy, low carbonation. Not particularly long. Smooth and nice.
