Rune (9239) - Tromsø, - 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).

gyllenbock (5746) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget, Rotebro. Hazy dark golden with a large white head. Aroma and taste of smoke, malt, caramel, yeast and some dried fruit. Also some "plastic". The finish was sweet and fairly bitter. A bit strange to be honest.

33 cl systembolaget. Smakade en del kära! Men ändå mycket god. Smakrik helt enkelt.

ABS (698) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2015
Hazy, brown colour, some red. Malt, caramel, some meat. Hint of smoke. Balanced sweet and bitterness. Quite "thick" taste in a way, umami maybe? Soft carbonation. medium body.

Vighals (1898) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
Noe tåkete orangebrun med høyt kremete beige skum som ligger helt ut. Lukter røde modne bær, vanilje, noe trevirke og fløtekaramell. Fyldigheten kjenner du helt fra starten. Alkoholen kommer god og varm sammen med bitterheten. Blomster og parfyme. Sitter igjen med en oljete munnfølelse. Bitterheten sitter lenge. Nesten som å slikke en nysprayet kvinnes hals.

Turtles (375) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2015
330ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy dark amber, fluffy off-white head. The aroma is strong, leather, malt, smoky whisky, peat. Medium carbonated, big malt body, fizzy but smooth. The taste hits hard, smoke, barrel aged smoky whisky, burnt malt. There is a sweet fruit flavor found in the messy and smoky background, it feels like a strange mix, but works well.

Vignale (2497) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2015
Flaska från SB. En ganska murrig rökig doft med jäst, gummi bredvid torv och rök. Smakar som doften men har också lite väl hög beska. Inte trevligt alls. Drickbart men inte mer.

larsniclas (6004) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2015
Bottled from Systembolaget Slightly hazy, golden. A bit vinous, smoked aroma and flavour. Medium bitterness.

Cool_Bond (1983) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2015
Scent is fruity and ashes. The taste is of ash, smoke and some fruitiness. Yet, in a good way. Quite so heavy and good bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Good beer which was not at all bad somehow. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

craftbeersweden (331) - SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2015
Released in Sweden 8 may 2015.

Hazy, dark amber colored beer with a two finger high, beige, head.

Nose: Orange, orange peel, dried fruit, citrus, smoke, stables and some rubber?
Taste: Citrus, pineapple, orange, grapefruit, malt, bread and oak.
Body: Medium body and carbonation. The finish is dry and bitter.

I’m not shure about this. I can’t get over the rubber-taste... Infection?
I really had higher hops for a Scotch Ale from Birra Del Borga and Brew Dog.
