gnoff (7780) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2013
Draught at Ölrepubliken during "Närkevecka", on February 27, 2013
Cloudy dark brown color, dense tan head. Smooth, heather honey, smoke, perfume, alcohol scent. Malty, red berries, some smoke taste. Tad acidic, mainly hay and some aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
If smoked beers is not for you, don’t get this one!
Also get honey after a while in the aftertaste. A dry wood sensation that comes through a bit in the mouthfeel as well. The acidity bothers me a bit and lowers the taste as well as the overall score. Could be the lingonberry mixed with alcohol notes that throws me off.
Didn’t catch the juniper myself.

sebletitje (6641) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2013
50cl bottle from Geers. Brune-acajou opaque, col moka fin disparaissant vite restant doré au verre. Arôme rend bien ce bouquet biologique que l’on retrouve dans le miel, le tout est ponctué par des notes de fumé et de tourbe qui font un combo assez unique, voire surprenant. En retrait, une fine touche de fruité et malt. Palais est malté avec un profil restant assez doux voir sirop avec un effet mielleux certain. L’ajout de ces baies scandinaves apporte ce côté distinct de canneberge - lingonsylt en Suède. Cela donne déjà un palais distinct qui est ponctué par des notes de fumés de malt. Fin de bouche garde une certaine amertume houblonnée ponctuée de qcq notes citronnées. L’effervescence est moyenne et le miel reste notable tout au long de la dégustation.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 1, 2013
A treat to have this. Pours dark brown with a thick off white head. Nose is pepper, honey, fruit, bacon, smoke. The taste is so complex. Hints of tart and bitter with a balanced sweetness. The mouthfeel is crisp and sticky too. The body is heavy and the finish is long. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Slightly mashy aroma but an OK roast too, some smokey hints. Very mashy, almost porridgy. WHAT THE FUCK?! This is a pretty messed up brew. There’s some sharpness, burntness, fuitiness, sweetness, and wtfuckiess. Not a bad beer, but too contradictory for me at this moment.

gyllenbock (4560) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2013
On tap at Bishop Folkis, January 2013. Dark reddish with a small tan head. A different beer indeed. Sweet with quite a lot of flavours. Smoke, malt, wood, some berries, a bit sour with a long aftertaste. Also fruit and some "plastic". Complex, but a glass was almost too much.

hirigalzkar (2283) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2013
Draught @ Folkis. Incredible sweet aroma with notes of honey and smoke. Taste has got notes of tigerbalsam, lingonberries and pine needels. Sticky texture.

finol (2145) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2013
Draught at Bishops folkis. Pours redish. Smokey aroma with some honney. The beer feels a bit thin for the huge amount of different tastes. Smokey and tart. Finishes with smoke and tarr like a whiskey barreled brew.

joeneugs (3175) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle shared by Fidel. Thanks Jon! It pours dark reddish copper with a tan head. The aroma is super peaty, smoky and mildly tart. Some burnt plastic and rubber. The flavor is more peat, plastic and tart raspberries. The finish is fruity and smoky. The phenolics on this one are a bit out of control. Interesting beer, but not more than a few ounces please.
