Had from a large wooden cask (225L I believe).

It is a nice dark brown beer.
Has a tempting malty smokey aroma.
Smokey flavour with chocolate followed by coffee. Definitely a smoked beer. The alcohol blends well and has a nice warming effect.
Has a larger medium body.
It goes down quite well, could drink a few in a sitting.

33cl bottle. Gusher. Pours a solid milk-chocolate brown with a much-too-large light brown head. Smells heavily of brown sugar and ripe dark fruits like plum. Vinous and spicy. Alcohol is only noticeable in the warming. Tastes of roasty malt and brown sugar/molasses. Vinous again in the taste. Warming alcohol and spice. Starts sweet but finishes surprisingly dry. Medium-full body. A nice digestif.

A dark black beer with a thin off-white head.

Smell of dark malt, roasty. Some woody notes that are a bit oaky. Some old coffee whiffs, which are a bit like spent coffee.

Taste is full of coffee, roasted with distinct cold coffee notes. This adds a nice maltbitterness on top of the normal bitterness, which is not extremely high, but does give an extra kick. If I am not mistaking this beer has coffee in it. This does not take over the beer, but adds an extra depth to the dark taste of the beer.
