bjakk (345) - Skagafjordur, - JUL 3, 2014
Yellow towards golden with white foam. Smoke, sour hay in the aroma. Smoke, dry with hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Hoppysmokiness grows. High in carbon. Watery. Lacks balance

Marduk (2726) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 18, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Peat, smoke, sweet notes in aroma. Peat, smoked, roast, dusty, faint coffee in taste. Intriguing palate. Long lasting smoke in aftertaste. I like it!

visionthing (2733) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2014
33cl bottle at The English Pub, Reykjavik. Pours clear golden with a white head. Smoky aroma, yes, but not so hoppy or sheepish. Mild malty with the smoky notes. Moderate to medium sweet with a fairly decent bitterness. Quite nice and decent smoked beer, but not much of an IPA. Interesting enough thou, but hardly something I would buy again.

FatPhil (9358) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2014
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
I can see why this was nicknamed sheepshit beer. The wooliness is heady, and there’s a very farmy nature to it. Pale orange, brief head. Watery palate, a little fizzy. Weak taste, fair amount of the wet sheep, simple sweet malts, but watery. Dullish. Gets pooier later on. If I spilt this in the entry-way, I’d be checking the soles of my shoes and boots... Generally just a feeble beer. If you’d have told me it was a smoked lager, I’d probably have believed you, this is so gutless as an IPA. Worst Borg so far, shame.

wiosna (133) - - AUG 30, 2014
0,33 pullo. Kirkas kullankeltainen. Tuoksussa savua, pirttiaittaa ja nahkasatulaa, myös navettaa ja AIV-rehua. Maussa pistävää maata, savuisuutta ja samaa makua miltä säilötty rehu tuoksuu. Ei todellakaan omaan makuun, mutta propsit mielenkiintoisuudesta!

Kavu (2236) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2014
0,33l bottle from a friend. Pours clear golden with a low head. Complex aroma is smoke, stables and malts. Flavor is malts, smoke, stables, feed and some hops. Excellent stuff.

Senap (359) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2014
Nja, väldigt konstig. Smakar gammalt askfat. Inte på något bra sätt, utan bara unket. Ipa och rök - ingen vidare kombination på detta sätt i alla fall.

hag14 (100) - Hafnarfjörður, ICELAND - JUL 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Bottle. Golden colour. Never given beer a lower score for aroma. Why would I go higher? I don´t like the smell of smoked shit. Taste is OK with subtle IPA bitterness. Overall this was is a fun experiment that resulted in a below average IPA that smells extremely bad.

Eirikur (370) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - JUL 4, 2014
This must be one of the weirdest brew I have had. Taðreiktur means manuremoked .. wether it is horse or sheep manure ? Tastes great and brilliant palate, the smoke is mainly on the nose. Dont think I will be buying this again.

haukur (1305) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 4, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2014 Golden color, small head. Aroma is smoke, country, horses, meat, animal manure. Dry with slight to medium bitterness. Fun brew, needs more hops though to balance out the smoke.
