A beautiful strong smoky aroma, a la Alaskan Smoked Porter. The wonderful aroma led way to a far too sweet body unfortunately. Forced to drink at a very slow rate. It is very smoky and peaty and just too sweet. Once is enough for me. I got my trades all mixed up but I think this one was courtesy of Nische. Thanks bud!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample @ Haand fest ’16, Drammen. Shared with the Norwegian tasting crew.
Ambrée, col crémeux beige.
Arôme montre de suite les signes de whisky, plein de tourbé et de sous-bois rappelant un peu ce côté mousse-bog tourbière marécage. Cendre, feu de cheminé avec un rétro complexe de baies.
Palais offre un côté tourbe plaisant, malté, cara pâle, pils, petite amertume houblonnée en rétro. Whisky perdurant sans être trop dominant, le tout conservant ce côté herbacé et baies - genévrier.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Uff, that one was... special, that’s for sure. Pours a hazy brown color, topped with a medium sized small foamy head, off-white. Intense smokey aroma, wood, bacon - all together strong and just too much. Taste is similar. Strong herbal bitterness, juniper presence easily felt and I’m no expetr. Smoke and bacon again, going into the aftertaste. Light body, but just not for me. Terrible

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle bb 05/16 from my EU Local Swap 1/2016 sender omhper, thanks!
Dark copper body, with a medium, fluffy, lacing, light beige head.
Aroma of dominant peat, wood, some spices, some caramel.
Tastes also of dominant peat, smoked wood, spices, caramel, some dark fruits.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes smokey, wooden, dry, a bit sweet, a bit fruity.
OK, but not my cup of tea, as I don’t like peat. The nose is almost only peat, taste is a bit more varied, with some dark malts and fruit notes. If you like peat dominated beers, this is perfect, but I’m not one of those people.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Thanks, Viktor. Not sure why I even bothered trying this...well, I know why, it’s just not a very good reason. Amber beer with some khaki foam. Pretty much what I expected here. A lot of smoke, plastic, rubber, and soap. Holy smokes. Big time herbal quality to go along with it. Some grass, baked apple, peat, and moss. Very strong smoke to the flavor. Perfumey, too. Not a fan.
