Turfsteker is a dark beer with caramel flavor brewed with barley from Drente. It has the same characteristics like the peat from former days - a warming feeling and redbrown color. It's unfiltered and non-pasturized so all it's flavors come fully to their justice.

skortila (5003) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2014
Bottled. The Aroma has a lot of caramel sweetness. Just a little roast. Bit hazy, brown coloured beer with an off white, medium head. Taste is quitesweet ends more bitter. There’s a lot of caramel malt again. You wouldexpect massive amounts of peat and smoke in a beer with this name, but nothing like that. Bit one dimensional.

Bottle 33cl. Dark amber with fading creme top. Aroma is flat, little sweet. Taste is bitter which lasts in the back of the throat. Average, not bad.

Nice head that dissappates nicely. Red brownish. Started drinking it a little too cold. Needs some warming to develop. There is a little sourness to the beer, not sure if that was meant. Bottle from a Cheeseshop in the Klooserveen area of Assen.
