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
Eructoblaster (4455) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
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 (2461) - 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
