On tap @ Beer Temple. Dark redbrown color with beige head. Aroma’s of smoked fish with honey-sweetness to balance that out. Flavor is rather sweet with smoky notes. Medium bodied. Finishes dry, but only mildly bitter and still smoky. On the sweet side but that balances nicely with the smokiness.

On tap at Schouskjelleren, Oslo. Dark brown colour. Aroma to die for; burnt wood, port, tar - hard to describe, but makes your mind wander. Velvety mouthfeel. Taste is like smoked port wine (if such a thing exists) with wood and licorice. Quite adorable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Half pint at Cardinal’s "Onsdag i Annen". Pours pitch black with big frothy head. Smells of smoked/cured meats and a dominant smokey flavor with some roasted malts to back it up. Some bacon in here as well. Leans more towards a ’rauchbier’ than a smoked baltic porter in my book. The beer is however very fresh (brewed about a month ago) and might age well.
