2013-01-31. Very dark brown black body modest tan head. 3+ Aroma of smoke over sweet malt base. Flavour is similar, moderately smokey throughout, it grows in the latter stages. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Decent take on it but not to my tastes. Bottle dated July 14 2011 shared by Blankboy blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
[My bottle (660ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jercraigs & mabel] Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a small tan head. Aroma is quite smoky along with roasted malt and hints of coffee and chocolate. Flavour of roasted malt, light smoke, coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied. Not amazing, just pretty good.

January 31, 2014 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel. 22oz bottle c/o blankboy. Clear deep brick red, smallish but lasting tan bubbly head. Mild aroma - grassy, light roast, a little coffee - not too sweet or boozy, but maybe a bit old. Taste has some definite cow barn funk to it, but not unpleasant - sweet roast malt balanced by a lactic/poopy character - no alcohol really. Average body, mild carbonation, a little peat/smoke in the finish, but it’s quite faded now. Okay. alobar (3879) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Pours cola brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of smoke, coffee, and hint of chocolate. Coffee, cocoa flavor with hint of roasted malt and smoke at the back end. Decent smokiness to this beer. First batch bottle.

Botella de 65 cl en casa. Marzo de 2013. Sabores tostados y ahumados no muy acentuados, que junto con un cuerpo medio la hacen muy fácil de beber. La botella probada y se encontraba caducada de un mes, no se si esto influiría en el carácter final de la cerveza que en general resulto bastante suave sin muchos sobresaltos. Me quedo con el ligero gusto tostado y ahumado final. Que pena no poder disponer nuevamente de esta maravillosa marca, habrá que esperar mucho?????

Leicht süßer und würzig rauchiger Antrunk. Die Süße nimmt ab, ist aber weiterhin präsent. Malzig rauchig, süffig, gut. 13/11/11/11/13/11 TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle at Zly Casy. Pours dark Brown with a light brown head. Smoky aroma. Some char and tar to the flavour but ultimately the smoke is light. I prefer it that way. There’s some roasted character but there isn’t really too much in common with a Baltic Porter. More focussed on smoke, roast and dryness than amped up sweetness and booze. Very nice either way. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2013

Malts and cacao aroma. Opaque, beige head, good lace. Sweetish, light bitter, just a hint of smoke. Medium body. Expected more but not bad.
22oz bottle, purchased recently from the Dilly Cafe for $8. Bottled on July 14, 2011. Dark brown color, near black. Clear brown red on the edges. Thin light brown head. Just a few loose dots of lace. Medium to bigger body. Lighter, kind of biting carbonation. Sticky finish. Big sweet taste, lightly spicy. Moderate bitter, but the sweet is pronounced. Big toasty malts, some dark chocolate. Nice smoke, a nice smokey meatiness to this. A little sweet, but still a pretty solid smoked porter. It’s tolerable. I expected worse, with 2 years.
