Bottled. Tnx thewolf! The bottle is definately too tiny. That’s why it gets minus points.Aroma has smoke, whisky, ashtray. Dirty brown-black coloured beer with not much head. The taste is sweet with all the heavy peated whisky ash there. Medium bodied. Absolutely interesting this one.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle from the glorious Ølbutikken.
Cloudy dirty brown with a thin off white head. Smells just like an Islay whisky. Over the top ashy, lots of mineral notes. My god this is totally whisky dominated. Just about able to detect some malt in there along with hints of a dirty old tobacco stained café. Sounds a bit wrong but it’s bloody awesome. Flavour... Poo the bed this is good. It’s like a sweet as hell rauchbier with some awesome peaty whisky carrying it all along really well. My god. Madness. Unlike anything I have ever tasted. Similar to so many others that I know so well but this is the whole lot blended together in one big bag of spanner munching frogs. Amazing stuff. It’s not really much like a beer. More a blend of lots of top quality intoxicants. Most of which you shouldn’t be allowed. Legend.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber/brown. Aroma and taste are rich with raisins, plums spices, smoke and roast malt. Some notes of licorice too.

puzzl (3237) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottled. Big, in your face smoky aroma, kind of hammy, vegetal, some oregano. Very, very sweet flavor, almost unbearable — I see now that this has added honey, and is 11.5%, which explains the massive sweetness. I guess the smoke somewhat kind of balances the sweet but not nearly enough. This is incredibly trying to drink.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2010 Bottle 25 cl. Slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Intense smoky aroma of burned plastic and phenols. Solid body, sweet caramel and massive smoked notes of burned plastic. Not much bitterness but a solid alcohol burn. 300809

Guerde (1148) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - AUG 21, 2009
(bottle, thanks Marsiblursi!) Pours a muddy amber with a bit of an off-white head. Aroma is strong and unique. As OSLO said there’s a big scent of smoked honey ham and I could smell the scent of rubber too, but the most prominent scent was that of Lapsang Souchang. Being a fan of that particular tea, I’ve gotta bump up the score a bit. The taste is also strong of smoked and glazed honey ham, with a nice interaction between the smoky and sweet flavors. Finish lingers with more smoke and a hint of oak. This was quite an interesting beer, and I liked it the more I drank it. Thanks again, Marsiblursi!

sthlm (1224) - Iowa, USA - AUG 10, 2009
[Bottle, thanks Marsiblursi!] Pours hazy dark amber with a tiny off-white head. Aroma just explodes out of the glass. Smoked honey ham, rubber that is new from the factory, and some herbal notes. Smoked honey ham in the taste again, with a good amount of malt present as well. Good mouthfeel, very smooth, and has a decent finish that isn’t as smokey as I thought it would be. The aroma is the weak point of this, but overall this was a very unique beer. Thanks again, Marsiblursi!

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2009
Bottle. Thanks ChristianScheffel. Pours dark amber coloured with a nice lasting off white head. Aromas of smoked salami, vanilla and hops. Smooth and oily texture. Malty flavour with notes of honey, smoke and bitter hops.

anders37 (15503) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark amber/brown color with a small off-white head. Has a malty smoky aroma with some hints of caramel and oak. Sweetish malty caramel flavor with some hints of smoke and some hints from the barrel. Has a sweetish malty smoky oaky finish.
