FatPhil (9596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2013
750ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Odd, messy aroma. Wooly taste - ooh, there’s a surprise! Dry bitter finish. Alcohol reasonably well hidden, but you can tell it’s strong.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2013
330ml bottle, lotto 125/12, shared with Finn on a Friday eve at The BrewDog Bar in Manchester. Firm off-white head reduced to a patchy surface. Dark orange coloured body, muddy. Smell of succulent citrus fruits, earthy malts and candy sweetness. Fruity flavour of oranges mingled with spices and herbs with underlying hints of smoked malt. Smooth bittersweet ending. Soft in the mouth. Refreshing (25.01.2013).

Scopey (7405) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to mR_fr0g. It pours hazy deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is orange, mango, tangerine, spice, wood, alcohol, smoke and earth. The taste is caramel, wood, leather, orange, tangerine, mango, apricot, earth and charcoal with a dry, citric finish. Perhaps not the most balanced beer, but it’s interesting and pretty flavoursome.

mR_fr0g (3965) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle at Chrisos tasting 20/01/2013. One of my ones. Clear orange amber, thin white head. Heather, toffee aroma with faint smoke. Flavour oats, toffee with more wood and smoke / charcoal. Bit of citrus finish. Palate is spritzy with a dry finish. A lot going on in this beer. A little muddled, but generally a very interesting beer.

Taste follows, much more smoke, charred wood, dark malts, dark fruits. Medium bodied with bite, soft carbonation, smokey bitter finish. Decent.
