3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Kaisla, Helsinki, 20110528) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had smoke, peat, whisky and malts. Palate was full bodied, warming and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were smoke, whisky, malts, roasted malts, sea water, mildly liquorice, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was smoky and malty. The whisky hid the beer too much - even though I usually like beers aged in whisky casks.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at Ølfestival København 2011. Hazy nut brown, small head. Smoky fruity nose. Sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. The hard barren malt prevents further exploration of the flavours. Some caramel, lot of smoke, mildly peppery alcohol burn in the finish. Rather messy.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at Copenhagen beer festival 2011. Clear brown, small baige head. Smokey tar aroma with loads of toffee, buttery bisquit and fruity plum. Very ashy dry smoke flavor mixed with caramel and toffee sweetness. Peated smoke finish with an alchohol bitterness. Sounds like its very peated, but it really isnt. Its more like that, sniffing an empty whisky bottle kinda peat.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense brown head. Rubber, fruits, tar and some fruits in the aroma. Flavour is very rough. Loads of smoke and fruits. Medium bodied. Ends on a rubbery and smoked note. Quite unrefined imo.
