330ml Bottle - Black with a small head. Liquorice, coffee, peat and some hints of plain chocolate in the aroma. Roasted, moderately smoky and slightly sweet taste with liquorice, coffee, cocoa, ash and some hints of vanilla. Complex and fairly rich yet easy to drink. langeveld12 (545) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2016
Quite a lot of peat and smoke in this beer, causing disbalance. After a while the peat lessens and more flavors come alive. I don't mind a bit of smoke or peat but in this beer I find it too heavy. That's a shame because it is a nice stout and it could be much more.

Bouteille partagée par SlovakSniper. 06/01/2017. Un liquide brun avec une mousse timide. Un nez qui empeste l’iode et la salle d’autopsie. Une bouche sous le même registre, le sous-sol de «six feet under», soit de l’iode. Vraiment pas mon genre.

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, bread, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate, roasted malts, smoke and peat.
Opaque dark brown/black beer with heavy yeast and with a medium brown/dark brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts, smoke and peat.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Extremely sweet start with a lot of dark fruit and liquorice. The excessive smoke, and even slight peat, at the end balances the whole beer.
