Big frothy beige head over handsome brown amber beer. Aromas offer restrained smoke and dark roast malt and more, complexity in some intensity. Medium bodied and lively on the palate, less sweet than suggested by the nose but with hints of sourness with the herby discreet bitterness. The finish is very refreshing and fairly long-lasting. Every Norwegian farm should still brew something like this.

Draft. Interesting smokey peat aroma with hints of alcohol. Unique beer, really exceptional; smokey flavors, with a slight dry/bitter essence. Very complex with each sip leading to different flavors. Excellent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a lightly cloudy amber color with a nice brown head that has good retention. Aroma of hickory sticks, campfire smoke, peaty phenols and a light juniper berry aroma in the background. Taste is peate, smoke and campfire with a nice alcohol warming on the finish. Burnt caramel also becomes present on the finish. Medium high carbonation with a nice creamy mouthfeel that has alcohol warmth and a nice spiciness throughout. Very well balanced and drinkable a touch a stringent but really a great example of a smoked beer.
