3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazy amber body and minimal head. Wow...Smokey! Chemically so! Liquid smoke. Eye watering! Leather, beef jerky, alcohol, nicotine and formaldehyde. Flavor is sweet with ash, liquid death, smoke stacks and some bitterness. Syrupy with medium bottles. I feel like I have black lungs after this.

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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
