Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle at Chris O’s tasting, 26th Sept 2008. Cloudy russet/brown with some beige head. Peaty Islay whisky oak aroma at first and then the malt comes through. Lots of great rauchbier flavours and a great palate. I wish it came in a bigger bottle for slow sharing!

Deep amber with a medium beige head. Aroma had peated malt, toasted malt, caramel and wood. Flavour was sweet and vinious, toasted malt, caramel, peated malt and ripe fruits. Finished smoked and sweet. Best smoked I have had. Excellent!

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2008
Bottle@Home, thanks Menno! Strong iodine and peat aroma, like a campfire. Hazy, orange/brown, beige head, fair lace. Very sweet, bitter, loads of peat and iodine, concentrated tangerine. Full, sticky and warming. Nice, not exceptional.

TBone (11900) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2008
Bottle from Olbutikken que (BBE 2012). Murky brown color, small off-white head. Aroma of smoke, wet wood and some kind of alcohol. Sweet maltyness, tobacco smokeyness (ashes to ashes!), some weird combination of wet wood, hops and yeast. Also some sweetish flavors, propably from honey (tricky!). Not alcoholic at all - 11.5% beer! The first beer which tastes like ash and is drinkable. This is not a stand-out, but allright. Cigar-lovers maybe like this even more. Unique.

sunevdj (3052) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle at home. Pours a almost clear dark brown with a small off-white head. Smells of leather. Quite sweet with aromas of smoked malts, caramel, wood and lots of leather. Some residual sugars. High carbonation. Full body. Smoked, dry finish with with hints of oak and alcohol. Good but has a bit too much of everything but water.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2008
<i>Bottled. </i> Hazy amber, small head. Rich medicinal rauchmalz aroma. Medium sweet with and aggressively flavourful. Oak collides with smoke and sugar. There are evident medicinal notes. A warming and potent beer that certainly stands out in the typical Mikkeller fashion. By far not my favourite from the though.

madsberg (9650) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2008
Bottled. Dark reddish brown coloured. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Smoke, berries, light spice, sweetness and alcohol in the aroma. Flavour is dense on alcohol. Has flower, berries and spice in it and a balanced and subdued smokyness. Medium to full bodied. Has a smoky alcoholdense and sweetish end. Very well balanced. Exciting but a little edgy.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2008
Bottled. brown colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is smoked mals, licorice, and mild alcohol. Flavour is toffee, licorice, smoke and some alcohol. When warm it gets quite alcoholic in all ways.

250 ml bottle - thanks again to after4ever for another Mikkeller gem; pours light brown and hazy with thin white head; smokey aromas are sweet and subtle; very strong and sweet with flavors of caramel, hops and dank fruit; perfect amount of smoke and really quite an amazing brew; in a lineup of crazy stouts, this might have been my fav
