look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Dark brown small head that disappears quite fast.

S: Some smells of tar, soy and smoked ham. You can sense the smell of a Finnish Sauna here.

T: Coffee, salt and asphalt. Still hints of soy and tar, but not to the same extent as in the nose.

M: Not to much carbonation, small bubbles and slips down the throat quite easily.

Not the best smoke beer I have had, but still drinkable. I won't recommend it, but I will at the same time not dissuade people from drinking it.

Picked this up at random in a Helsinki supermarket.

A: Very dark mahogany body verging on black. It's beige head dissipates very quickly.

S: Mocha and smokey porter smell.

T: Halfway between a very smokey stout and a barley wine. Sweeter than your average impy stout, but drier than your average barley wine. Pretty medicinal – to elaborate, it has that cough syrupy quality. Port wine in the finish as well. It's very complex actually. Not picking up on any fruit.

O: Pretty good. Think it's underrated on here.

Black color, beautiful light brown colored foam. Good appearance.
Quite intense smoked smell, very pleasant. Alight roast in the back.
A bit less intense in the mouth, but very well balanced.
The the smokiness comes back intense in the aftertaste.
Well done and pleasant.

A: Brown with a beige head. Some lacing.

S: Smoke, Sweet malt, Bacon.

T: Smoke, Hint of metal, Roasted malt, Hint of chocolate.

M: Body is quite thin with lots of carbonation. Nice bitterness for a smoked beer.

An average smoked beer. Could have used some more body and a little bit more sweetness to balance it out.
