From barrel at the Great British Beer Festival, August 2009. Copper colour. Very smoky aroma. More on the palate. Maybe a little plastic. Still an excellent smoked, albeit an “in your face” one. Alcohol not too dominant.

gyllenbock (7553) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2010
On tap at Akkurat. Dark amber. The foam was large, thick and white. The aroma was smoky with some fruitiness. The taste was absolutely wonderful, without a doubt the best tasting Smoked beer I have drank. Smoked bacon, salt, spices and a nice sweetness. Aftertaste was dry with some bitterness. Nicely balanced and very easy to drink despite 9,6%. Weltklasse!

hirigalzkar (2896) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2010
Draught @ Akkurat. Ap: Dark orange color. Hazy, Creamy white head. Ar: Smoked and the usual hefeweizen tigerbalsam thing. Fla: Smoked sausage at first, then a lighter almost hefeweizen like taste of banana and some spices. Finishes with a small bitterness with som licorice. Small vinous taste reminds the drinker of the 9,6% abv. Pal, Ov: Oily, smooth texture. Big bodied. Clean. A beer with contrasts that still is very well balanced. Very good!

Cask @ 1st BBF, De Molen.
Pours hazy orange amber with a nice, creamy, white head. Aroma has smoke, lots of caramel, sweet rye, light sugar and a hint of flowery hops. Light, medium carbonation, nice creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is smokey, slightly meaty, lots of sweet malts and a really good, flowery hoppy dry finish. Nice.
