2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2014. Pours a nice, dark, reddish amber with an off white, nice head. Looks great. Aroma is smokey leather, shoes, sweat, peat and some caramel sweetness. Taste is sweet, toasted, sugary caramel at first, but then turns ugly, leathery peat, smoke, meat. Medium carbonation and medium body. Not my style!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap@nordic. Red amber, light hazy. Soft smokey, horsey malty nose. Pretty interesting, makes me really think about stables, horsedung and all that. Med bodied, sour berries, an overripe apple- like fruityness, yeast, more stables, dung and all that. Finishes on a slight herbal grassy note. Interesting. Really exotic flavours, pulls nice for one pint, at least. A bit like that beaver ass-gland- one they had.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear brown. Very smokey, woody, herbal aroma. Flavour is very floral and herbal. Smooth, slightly sticky and very strange.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at BBF’14. Pours red brown amber with a tiny head. Beer is ruled one-sidedly by the peat. Not bad, but not balanced.

I love the smoke in this beer, it’s right in your face and tastes a whole lot like smoked raindeer.
