A: The pour is pretty much black with a very small mocha colored head. S: The roasted malts are really the first thing to hit me, but the smoke is not too far behind. There seems to be a bit of a lactose or vanilla thing going on, too. Some nice chocolate aroma is also present. T: Lots and lots of roasted malts here. A good chocolate and coffee flavor along with just a bit of bitterness. The smoke is quite pronounced as you might expect. M: The body is medium with quite a low level of carbonation. D: Despite being pretty smokey, I actually thought this was good and had enough other flavors going on.

MiP (15484) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2013
Draught, 9.5%. Surprisingly little aroma. Almost black colour, seems hazy. The flavour is sweet and salty at first, then it turns vinous with a mild bonfire smoked note. Subtle smoke, but still comes forward.
