Growler from Iron Abbey as a bday present. Quickly dissipating head. Hazy dark amber smokey malt nose. Certainly smoke flavor here, cloying dryness. Quite a natural rustic flavor here. I do feel this is a throwback.

Mostly smoke, but some of the juniper flavor is there as well. The juniper is subtle, not strong like gin, and goes very nicely with the dominant smoke flavor. Very good beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Altfor mye røyksmak i midten.
Fin start, før røyken kveler meg, og den får en litt for bitter slutt...
Ikke min type øl...

Rødbrun tåkete med beige skum. Lukter skog, røkt malt, syrlige epler og snus. Røkt i smaken også, noe humlebitter og salt lakris. Kort ettersmak til å være en så kraftig øl.
