On cask at Congress, Longton. Pours pitch black with a tan head. Hop smack aroma, smooth mouthfeel. Some smoke, hint of caramel. So much going on with this. Bloody marvellous but I did somewhat over do it, it aint a session ale at 6.5%....

Smaskifa (136) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle. Pitch dark stuff, neat head which keeps hanging on. The aroma is dominated by the smoked malts and hops, some coffee, dark choco, intensely dried red berries, resin. The taste starts off pretty neat, easy to pick up the roasted stuff, coffee, choco, and the malts, some intense fruitiness going on as well, hint of licorice. I did however find the end to be too bitter and too dominated by the smoked malts and hops, I also picked up a pretty heavy touch of resin. The beer is very nice until the end which hits you like an Indian lorry overloaded with bitterness. Its too unbalanced to get a very high score for me. Maybe a few more weeks or months on the bottle would have reduced it.
