(Bottle) Orange amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit, toffee, oak wood, honey and orange peel. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, oak wood, some smoke and tar, honey, orange peel and some whisky coming through in the finish. Mild citric bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Interesting, but a bit perfumy and sweetish. Enjoyable.

Bottled. Hazy pale ambe, brief head. Peaty honeyish nose. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel . Fruity with peaty smoke, lots of butter. White pepper finish. Perumy oak surface on a shitty base beer. Perfume will not help a witch...

Väldigt rökig doft, påminner lite om laphroig. Sötma i doft och eftersmak. Ölen är len och inte alls stark, förutom just rökigheten! Gillas!

TheJestersBeer (2392) - SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2014
330ml bottle. Oaky, quite smokey, spicy aroma, caramel, peat, drief fruit, vanilla, butter. Off-dry, medium body, low to medium bitterness, slightly low CO2. Spicy, smokey, oaked taste, vanilla, caramel, dill, butterscotch, fudge, apricot, hints of hops and cardboard, peat, iodine. Quite nice layers of different flavours going on here, the Marsala notes interact decently with the smoke. But - the sugary, cloying sweetness of the beer clashes with everything else in the beer. Two mouthfuls, and the rest is poured in the sink. (2014-05-11)

Dazz3 (1797) - Hallsberg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2014
Bottled. Pours amber with a huge white head. Smells whiskey, bread malty, a bit perfume. Tastes sharp bread malty, a bit sweet with a similar finish.

Nische (1920) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2014
One of the worst I’ve ever tried. Like making out with a smoker. Taste of ashtray and disgusting bitterness.
