Smoked, black currant, red berries, hint of coffee, rather complex aroma. Opaque, light brown head, good lace. Smoked, light sweet, light bitter, black chocolate, coffee. Bit thin, dry light sandy mouth feel. Flavourful, maybe just a bit too much going on which disrupts the balance. Overall very nice.
Poured dark brown with a frothy tan head, very lively once the cork was out. Aroma of smoked malt and sweet dark fruit. Medium body, flavour of sweet vanilla, chocolate and roast coffee over the smoked malt. Dry, bitter aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is smoke, roasted malts, some fruitiness, chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is quite nice with smoke at first and then the chocolate comes through and finishes quite dry. Texture is medium with a soft carbonation. Very nice brew with the smoke not overdone. jfb (6333) - GERMANY - DEC 20, 2012
(bottle) pours a deepest ruby-brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of heavy toasted malts, herbal hops and pepper, with a slightly sharp smokiness, brown sugar and biscuits. flavour is quite peppery, with notes of toasted malt, cherries, coffee, dark chocolate, smoked ham and a light herbal-hoppy finish. light to medium-bodied with average carbonation. jerohen (2306) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2012
Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Unlabeled bottle wrapped in some sort of newspaper, informative and original. Black appearance, big lasting brown head. Smoky nose, peat, roasted malts, some coffee, perhaps even some lactic notes. Smoky flavor, subtle, coffee more pronounced than in aroma, bitterness, but little hops. Lasting bitter and smoky finish. Not nearly as extreme as the Bamberg brews, instead it’s quite subtle, but everything is in perfect harmony. Well balanced, good beer. Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2012

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 Bottle. Pours black with a billowy, rocky, large, dark latte head. Aroma is mostly smoke, light peat in there as well. Taste is also smoky, quite mild really, clean and simple, light fruitiness, light roast. Palate is quite light. Too little of anything in here.
