Draught. Dark brown with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma: mostly smoke, some smoked meat. Taste: malt, smoke, berries, some dried fruits, some acidity, medium bitterness. Quite a full mouthfeel. A really tasty, different, and interesting beer with a good smokiness that isn’t too meaty.

Sample @ SBWF ’10. Hazy amber. Smoke, perfume and fruit in aroma. More of the same in the rich taste but with some coffee added. Despite the smoke it’s still refreshing. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mikkeller. It’s a slightly hazy, reddish golden beer topped by a small, off-white head. Lots of smoke and horse droppings. Some faint caramel. Maybe that sound bad, but it was quite nice. The flavor has smoked malts giving bacon and some ham, and a little horse droppings touch and a fine bitterness. Full body. A strange beer, but quite nice even though it wakes what seems like unpleasant associations. 100506
