TBone (18373) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2017
Bottled 330ml (Beer Republic)

Opaque colour, small brownish head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, alcohol and peated smoke. Medium-bodied, suprisingly thin for this ABV. Flavour is toasted, some peat, licorice and cold coffee. Should be more robust, now too watery.

Bottle, 06/10/17. Aroma is roast, earthy coffee, coffe beans. Taste is roast, some earthiness, quite a lot of coffee. Fairly nice.

samsomuk (269) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle from Beer Gonzo. Pours very dark brown with a decent sized beige head.
Aroma of coffee beans, wood smoke, bitter dark chocolate. The flavour is dominated by smoke, it's bittersweet with light coffee & dark malts. Thin bodied, moderate carb, dry smoked coffee finish, super smooth mouthfeel. Pretty good

Beaverex train beer 4500. Pours near opaque brown with a small brown head which soon recedes. Aroma is smoke and coffee. Taste is smokey, coffee, vanilla, cocoa bitter, slight dark berries.

Zlotta (3972) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2017
0.33 l bottle from 'Speciaalbierpakket.nl', best before February 2019. Black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Slightly sweetish, malty, rather roasty and slightly smoky aroma of dark chocolate, lots of coffee, licorice and some ash with a touch of peat. Moderately sweet, malty, rather roasty and a little smoky taste of dark chocolate, licorice, lots of coffee, some ash and hints of peat, followed by a medium long, rather roasty-bitter, earthy-dry and slightly peaty finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very interesting but a bit unround, overall quite good though!

jerohen (2358) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2017
Bottled from BierNavigatie.nl. Opaque dark brown colored, huge everlasting brown head, bit over the top initially, but the lacing may be the best i’ve ever seen. Intense nose of roasted malts, coffeeish, whiskyish, oatmeal, some peat perhaps, very nice. Not overly bitter in flavor, lots of roasted malts, caramel, some coffee, hint of whisky, sweetness, almost salty in finish. Probably not a beer for everyone with the emphasis on malts combined with peat and salty notes, but i must say personally i really like it. Remarkable that i didn’t like the Emelisse version, did the recipe change or did i change?

21/VII/17 - 33cl bottle @ Belgian Ticks Tasting (home) - BB: II/2019 (2017-1106) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!


Clear dark brown beer, practically no head, just some beige bubbles. Aroma: very peated, sweet, caramel, lots of coffee, very roasted, sugary, more peat smoke. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty roasted, sweet caramel, bitter touch, peated, more roast and smoke flavours. Aftertaste: lots and lots of coffee, roasted, smoky, charcoal, ashes, very bitter, too much coffee and peat for me, lacks some balance, the result is too harsh for me. And it’s not just because I ain’t no coffee guy. :p

Bottle. Had no idea this was a kees, it looks very different. Pours nearly black, small white head. Smell is smoked, and so is the tastem some burnt aspects,but no clear coffee to me. To smoked for my taste.
