Bottle from Bierkompass!
Strong gusher! It doesn’t stop foaming up, many yeast particles truly whirl in the beer. It pours orange-blond with lots of yeast particles and a huge foam. Smell has lots of smokd malts, some fruitiness and floral hops. Starts with fruity-smokey notes, paired with sweetish yeast flavor. Soft carbonation. The middle part has some more smoke with some kind of ashtray flavor, paired again with very sweet yeast notes. Goes into a yeasty-sweet and smokey finish with some ashtray.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow color with a frothy white head. Aroma is of smoked meat, like pork, sausage and salami, with some light citrus fruity notes in there too and herbal notes. The flavor is again filled with smoke with notes of smoked pork, sausages and salami along with campfire, the citrus fruit notes and herbal notes. The body is medium with a dry motuhfeel and a ton of carbonation. Overall a solid brew, but rather peculiar.

yngwie (15762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. A big, off-white head sits on top of a slightly unclear, golden body. Some lacing. The aroma is smoked, with fruity hops and some malts. The flavor is citrusy sour with some smoke notes. Fruity too. Medium body, a bit heavy on carbonation. Overall, a decent beer, but not the kind of smoked beer I prefer. 110827
