Pours a black color in which red hints come through, with a bubbly beige head.

Smells of toasted malts among earth and a sugar supported sour note. Reveals coffee above the sweetness with chalk and matured, herbal hops. A faint smoky whiff adds to the overall sweeter taste, without providing much character on its own, as it is very subdued.

Has a well fitting higher carbonation, while the beer remains a smooth mouthfeel among its light body.

Tastes of toffeeish malts, with a lactic, sour bite added, wrapped up by bitter, roasted coffee. Coffee inherits a good amount of hops, blending well into the coffee bitterness, without distracting from the malty character of the beer. The brew then turns immediately sweeter, with a salty, honeyed note to it, while it finishes with a gentle ham roastiness, reminding of the coffee and earth feom the beginning.

Unconventinal, but very convincing in its taste. Much more roasted and less sweet than the usual Smoked, with a huge amount of earth, on which smoked ham settles beautifully, by adding a sweet peak.
