2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Mumsig Miniprovning, Göteborg. Black beer with a very small beige head. Peated aroma, smoke, whiskey, tar, cocoa, dust, some licorice. Smoked flavor, bad coffee, peat, soot. Floral notes, but most of all soot and smoke. Way too much, hiding all other potential flavors.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Countbeer. Pours an opaque black with a thick and creamy light brown head leaving some lacework. Thick and vicious iodine aroma from the peated barrel atop the roasted malts. Rich body, heavy roast, ashtray and again a shitload of nasty iodine and tar. Roasty bitter finish. Another beer that didn’t convince me of the greatness of peated beers. To me it’s really just ruining a great base beer. 240712

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ The 5th Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg, 2012. Pours black with bubbles on top. Salty and extremely peated nose and flavor. Whisky, booze and peat. How to completely ruin a fine beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
DArk almost pure black with small brownish foam head. Smell is charcoal with whiskey. Taste is burnt malts with whiskey. Do I taste a 3 days old wet sigar? Bitter? Don’t know. Not quite my style, liked the Glen Elgin better. (Bruinisse 201205)
