3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at brewpub 21 feb 2012. Black colour with a thin light beige head. Milde smoked and roasted nose. usually I do not fancy smoked beer to much, but Amundsen and Haandbryggeriet have changed my mind. First they told me that they where no more Snill IPA left (later I found out that they was wrong), so i ordered this. Nice choice. A fine mild smoked, roasted and some chocolate flavour.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Amundsen Bryggeri og Spiseri, Oslo. Pours a black body with a small beige head. Mild smokey tones in the nose, cured meat and hints of dark malts. Taste is much smokier, with cured meat up front, then dark chocolate, hints of burnt caramel and coffee. Medium carbonation. Pretty nice, and perhaps the best beer from Amundsen - without support, at least.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
14.10.2011. On tap at the brewpub. dark brown, almost black colour with tan brown head. Aroma is dominated by smoky flavours and roasted malts. Body is medium and does not give this beer enough richness. Aftertaste is dry bitter, but there is also some malty sweetness. Lasting dry bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Amundsen, Oslo. This is a deep deep brown-red beer with a thin and quickly sidesticking beige head. The aroma is both roasted and heavy on the chocolate! More notes of some fruity black currants and a little smoke. Not to much, but a nice touch absolutely. Average carbonation on this, it’s medium bodied and the mouthfeel is light oily to watery. Lots more smoke in the taste! Tons more than in the aroma. Also some roasted malts, chocolate, thin coffee and perhaps even some dark fruits. It has a nice and quite lingering both smoky, roasted and chocolate-aftertaste. Quite nice stuff, but it would have been even better if it had a bit more body.

From tap@Amundsen. Black with no clarity. A finger of rusty-beige foam on top. Rounded and subtle smoke aroma. Roast and choco notes, and a nice smell of peppery and spicy hops. Chocolate-malty flavor with mild smoke tones. Fine bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel. A smooth and balanced Smoked. Very likeable.
