500mL bottle, via rickgordon, shared at Kennett Square Brewfest after-party 2006. Pours a clear dark copper under a fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin film. Aroma is full of smoked malt with some delicious smoked meat notes. Very sharp and clean. Flavor is just great, with in your face smoke and moderate maltiness. Finishes with a moderate bitterness and a long lingering campfire smokiness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with very soft fine carbonation. Finishes lightly dry. Overall, this was quite a great Smoke beer. It really was up there with some of the classic brews I’ve had from Aecht Schlenkerla, not on par, but up there. Who would have guessed that this was from Sweden? These guys at Närke are really putting out quality stuff. Hopefully they will step up bottling efforts and get more of this stuff out to the world.

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2006
On tap at The Rover, Gothenburg. Clear, dark brown beer with a beige head. Smoked aroma with notes of un-fried bacon, roasted malt and burnt malt. Sweet flavor with smoked malt, dried fruits and bitterness. Full-bodied, a bit sticky mouthfeel, and a long, bitter finish with a good dash of sweetness. A really nice smoked beer with quite a lot of bitterness, which is nice, in my opinion. (060824)

Sigmund (4939) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2006
On tap at The Rover, Göteborg. Dark chestnut colour, nearly ruby when held to the light. Amazing aroma of smoke, bonfires, seaside, tar and woodwork - but not the smoked sausage aroma of German rauchbiers. Smoke and tar in the flavour too, slightly drier than I would prefer, dusty / ashy finish. Not much else going on besides the smoke and tar.
