Top 50? This must be a bad bottle. Smell is stout and skunk. Taste is sweet and strong bitter and light skunk. Nice lasting head. Not a dumper. But not good. dysenteri (324) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2017

Small bottle from Liberty Wine Merchants on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. A black beer with moderate tan head and a bit of smoke on the nose. The smokiness is evident on tasting. Roasted malts make up the background. The key here is balance. The smokiness is not overdone. 3.9 Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2017
