tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle at Alla Spina. Pours black with thick, bubbly tan head and some lace. Nose of chocolate, burnt wood, smoked meat, roasted malt. If you like smoked beer you will probably love this. I do not

suurjuust (3024) - ESTONIA - NOV 27, 2016
330ml bottle. Black beer, small beige head. Nose is smoke, tar, roast, chocolate, burned notes, malt. Flavor is sweet, burned and roasty, dark chocolate. Finishes with tar, coffee, smoke, roasty acidity, . Tarry retronasals and lingerin warm alcohol. Lighter palate than I’d expect from a smoked istout. More burned than smokey, but pretty nice nonetheless.

Kauge (1649) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle. BB 05.06.2019. Pours really dark brown with big-bubbled (not too attractive) beige head. Lovely aroma: smoky, thick and sweet, autumn apples, Tastes sweet and malty, roast and overripe autumn apple sweet sourness. Velvety smooth on the palate. Carbonation near minimum. So easy-drinking despite the somewhat harsh finish which goes well with the overall character. Correction: as it warms, the harsher it gets! And alcoholic. And that’s not pleasant. A (relatively) quick drinking Imperial Stout that is. Good, still good.

agent_persik (684) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 17, 2016
Black colour, small head. Aroma of roasted malted, smoke, chocolate, coffee, biscuit, vanilla, hops. Sweet bitter taste with medium hoppy bitterness in finish and aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Nice smoked stout.

VamboladeTolly (1658) - Tartu, ESTONIA - NOV 1, 2016
Bottle. Pours deep dark brown with small brown head. Aroma: smoked fish skin, roasted, dark dried plums, coffee, hay. Taste: smoked malts, weak sweetness with sourness, some bitterness, well farmed raddish, coffee, dark chocolate. Everything is like good but something is bothering in that beer. Full body. Bitter.roasted finish. Nice.

phfyysik (876) - Tartu, ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2016
Pours black with light beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, toasted bread, malts, some coffee, light sweetness, chocolate cake, some bitterness. Taste is mild, chocolate, muffins, cream, some toast, oily, dark coffee, chocolate caramel pudding. Some smokiness comes out in aftertaste but is rather humble. Nice beer!

FatPhil (14511) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2016
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Black, tight tan head. First hit is a stabley leathery sweaty salty smokiness. Behind that, there’s a sweet roast, some burntness, but not harsh. Full sweet palate, a little slick, pleasant carbonation. Taste is a slightl less smoky version of the aroma, the sugar’s taken up the reins as the dominant thrust. There is some alcohol there too. But it’s an OK rich roast. Finish pleasantly bitter with old dry hops, and a touch burnt. OK, but not wowing me.

Marduk (6590) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2016
330ml bottle. Murky very dark brown, almost black color. Small size, bubbly off-white head, stays. Berries, peat, alcohol, woody and whiskey in aroma. Woody, blackcurrant skins, fruity, faint peat, caramel in taste. Rough, but yet smooth roast, caramel and woody notes in aftertaste. Alcohol is there, but not disturbing. Excellent brew.

martjoobolut (3380) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle, BB 05.06.19 (from Koht). Pours black. Aroma is smoke, greasy bacon, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, malt, roast, smoke, dark chocolate, tar. Finish is dark chocolate-roast bitter with some tar thrown in. Alcohol is somewhat noticeable. Overall: very good, bit too tarry for me and not as balanced as the best smoked beers.
