Foffern (1543) - Bodø, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a pretty black colour with a medium brown head. Could a beer look better? Both aroma and flavour is extraordinary, and is filled with dried fruits, coffee, barbecue sauce, dark chocolate, chocolate truffles and hints of smoke. Wonderful! Has a rich and soft mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Simply a fantastic beer if you love dark and smokey stuff.

Bygers (1097) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle 0,33l. Pours thick black with tiny brown head. Aroma is oak upfront, sweet whiskey notes, with hints of peat, smokiness. Taste starts with salmiakk, caramel sweetness which is followed by massive pairing of oak and alcohol whiskey notes. These woody notes stick to the tongue and last quite long. Delicious stout, but too much sweetness and wood for my personal taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sample at Brewdog Newcastle. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma of whisky, flavours of smokey peaty whisky,and mocha. Full bodied and alcoholic. Delicious.

daje (2819) - NORWAY - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle. Rated at grünerløkka Brygghus, later become availible at Vinmonopolet. Black body, tall brown head, thick. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, wood. Massive taste of roast malt, some smoked malt, coffee, whisky, hoppy too. Highly carbonated. Good "drinkability" for its strength.

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle. Black pour, instantly dissipating tan head. Aroma of vanille, leather, toffee, cream, bourbon, ash, tobacco, chocolate and very very rich. Flavor is warming alcohol, bitter roasty, sweet vanilla oak, chocolate, very smooth and warming. Lovely. Bit low on the carbonation though.

Joakgust (1272) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle, 33cl - Black brown beer with a small head. Aroma is malty with notes of vanilla, wood, peat and licorice. Flavor is malty with sweet notes of licorice, smoked malt, vanilla ice cream, chocolate and cookie dough. Amazing, but perhaps slightly too strong.

Finn (5563) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 15, 2012
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Svart. Høyt lysebrunt tett skum som varer lenge og fester seg til glasset. God lakrisaroma. Oljeaktig munnfølelse. Ekstremt fyldig & innholdsrik smak. Nøtter. Sjokolade. Lakris. Flott balansert. Sakte overgang til en behagelig syrlig bitterhet som etter en stund blir passe tørr. Et sjeldent eksempel på en vellykket etterlagring på whisky-fat. Alkoholen skremmende godt kamuflert.

capali1234 (272) - HUNGARY - AUG 12, 2012
Pours very dark brown with tan film. Smoke, peat, wood and sea salt aroma. Tastes bitter, a little metallic, peat and wood. Oily texture, good beer....

BeerBaboon (1837) - FINLAND - AUG 12, 2012
Black beer with a small amount of beige head. Aroma consists of lots of malt, roasted notes, caramel, wood and whisky. Flavour is a bit too much on the sweet side. It’s also roasted, wooden and whisky-like.I liked Smokehead and Arran Malt better.
