Tap @ Fermentoren. Pours deep brown/black-ish with a small beige head. Aroma if roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, a bit of licorice and a hint of smoke. Full bodied, sweet and low carbonation. Not super complex, but very tasty and overall very good.

Mild würziger Antrunk, kernig malzig. Im Mittelteil etwas laff, nur noch wenig würzig, süß getreidig, monoton. Zum Ende wieder etas malziger mit bitterem Unterton. 11/11/9/7/7/8

Bottle - 500ml. Pours an opaque black body with an average beige foamy head. Wonderful, complex malty/hoppy aroma with roasty, chocolate, and some smoked ham/bacon hints. Its robust, well balanced taste carries licorice, roasted coffee, and smokey notes. Ends with a long, warming bitter/roasty finish. Very well done. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2014
As smoked stouts go, this one is pretty lame and tepid. Definitely not worth the price for this one. Needs more smoke definitely.

Rated as Mikkeller/Xbeeriment #44 smoked stout... Brown black in color... Light tan head... Aroma of roasted malts, oak, heavy peated malts... Flavor is fairly sweet roasted malts with smoke coming through late and especially on palate... Fairly enjoyable but smoke kind of overwhelms other nuances... Solid

pours unclear very dark brown with a creamy beige head, good retention and lacing. chocolate and roasted coffee beans, bold yet under control smoked more than peated malts, red fruitiness, piney and resinous, peppery and dusty-not quite ashy roastiness - some welcoming minerals too, moderate sweetness - pinch of milk. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, assertive and bold bitter coffee-smoky-piney finish. balanced smoked stout. tasty and good too! solid. Hansen (8595) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2014
Dark, almost black. Has a light brown head, lasting. Dark, roasted aroma with notes of port-wine, soft and still some faint coffee notes. Yeasty too. Flavor starts heavy sweet, more roasted, lightly burnt notes. Smoke? Perhaps. Moderate bitter finish. Soft texture.
