COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bloed, Zweet & Tranen, brewed by accident with malt from the Bruichladdich distillery, instead of the usual peated malt. Single batch only. NOTE: Beware, the bottle does not indicate whether it’s the regular BZT or the Bruichladdich. So the only way to know this is if the one who bought it was told it’s the Bruichladdich.

fonefan (34595) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2009
Draught @ Brouwerij de Molen, Overtocht 43, Bodegraven, 2411 BT Netherlands.
Unclear medium to dark brown color with a large, creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, beige head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, burnt, caramel, smoked. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, and a dry dry finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. This how a smoked beer has to be prepared, well done Menno ;o)) [20090226]

75 cL bottle. Pours dark brown, hazy, and with a small tan head. Solid smoked and peaty aroma. Leathery. Mild sweetness initially with a nice roasted caramel malt flavour then taken over by a solid smoked flavour into a dry and dense smoked finish. Lovely!

Bottled. A brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has strong notes of smoke as well as medium notes of malt and tar. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of smoke on a sweet malty background, leading to a dry and smokey finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown with a tall, dense and stable light brown head leaving some laces. Very smoky aroma of tar and salty ropes. Medium body with hard roasted malts, very smoky whisky accents and a fairly bitter finish. Very interesting. 210309

Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Black, creamy head. Peaty whisky aroma. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Sugar mixed with Highland whisky. Some coffee, but most gets lost amongst whisky and sugar. Warming and filling, but in the end more inteesting than good.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2010 2009-11-10, draught at Monk’s Café, Stockholm, Wallingatan, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Black color; thin layer of foam, persistent. There is a mild smoke aroma, glue, light alcohol. It has medium body strength, surely less than I would expect; chocolate flavor, on the dry side, with smoke tones; good bitterness level, but getting even a bit drier at the end. I’m used to more powerful, bodied, sweet beers from De Molen. Balanced but not very exciting; like if it’s missing a bite.

2009-05-16, draught at Københavnske Øldage 2009, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Black color, small head. Sudden peaty aroma, but also a bit dusty. Good body, strong chocolate flavor, nice whiskey/peaty touch. And the peaty final is very appreciated. Good (but below the average for De Molen).
