Melker (253) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2012
Murky brown beer, off-white head. Aroma of prunes, nuts, toffee, and smoke. Malty taste, smokey and kinda chemical actually. The body is thin and oily.

markwise (5195) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle courtesy of a kind soul at the Tampa Weekly Tasting. Pours a hazy yellow with an off-white head. Nose is peaty band-aid soaked in cigarette ashes. Flavor follows the nose with a hint of caramel. Medium in body and uber smokey for my tastes.

rarbring (2262) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2012
Aroma: Smelling of egg yolk, sugar and nuts.
Appearance: Very clouded and murky, a brown brew with hint of orange, a warm off-white uneven head, good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Starting sweet, brown bread, syrup, raisins, sherry, Marzipan and apple peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, smooth and thick, a big body and a slightly dry finish.
Overall: A sweet barley wine, young, as most I get the feeling I should have waited a few years.
Note: Bottle. Reviewed 2012-07-20.

stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2012
Det här är kanske inte världens mest välsmakande öl men den är ytterst komplex och då även intressant. Smaken är nötig, syrlig och unken, som sagt inte världens mest välsmakande öl men förbannat rolig.

OmegaX (1372) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Man, I didn’t know what I was getting into with this one...but that was the point. Nose is synthetic rubber, caramel and nuts, honey, whole grain mustard, and peat malt. Very unique. Body is a dull orange color with not much for head. Taste is funky with less of that rubber quality, a touch of alcohol, lightly fruity, and brown mustard. Strange is for sure. I brought this one specifically for Markwise. Cheers!!

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
OmegaX has a way of finding these interesting brews.The aroma is a tad smoky, but with hints of crayons, rubbing alcohol. The taste is of smoked almonds and toast. In the strangest way I liked it a little bit.

Bottle. Hazy red-brown clour with a large quickly vanishing off-white head. Sweet hops aroma. Smokey flavour, slightly sweet and bitter.
