4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(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!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[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!

Flaske: Stor duft af røg, virkelig lækker. Brunlig barleywine udseende, med et lille skumhoved og næsten ingen karbonering. Smagen er meget kompleks og lagdelt. Først røgen, så en mere frugtet barleywinee og tilsidst fadlagringen. Interessant og speciel øl.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Amber to copper, deep brown body. Off-white head. Aroma of smoke, wine, red port, hints of smoked bacon, barrels, grapes, caramel malts, fenols and 4VG. Quite nice aroma, at first I thought it to be very smokey, but it is actually quite complex, also due to barel aging. Heavily (bit harsh) bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Fully bodied, averagily carbonated. Combines mellowness of barel aging very good with the smked malts. Quite nice beer.

The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Nice head, modest turbid. The beer starts strong-malty, also very smoky, notes of bacon, raisins and plums. A bit yeasty. Well balanced, warming finish, a little bit alcoholic. Very good! Thanks yespr for this bottle!
