Bottle. Strong aroma of bitumen, burned electronic, earthy, basement. Taste even more extreme than aroma. This is good stuff, but only for people with specific taste :)

Bottle from the Knutsens, thanks!
Amber with a minimal white foam lid. Some foam clinging to the glass. Nice.
Aroma has peat, peat, peat, smoke and some fruity notes in the background.
Taste is smoky with peat, slight bitterness and no alcohol.
Medium body, low carbonation, dry mouth feel.
Dry peaty after taste.
One sided but tasty.

25cl bottle pours a clear orange with some creamy, white head. Nose is crayon and burnt tire and rubber band and plastic. Flavor is smoke, malt, some beech wood, salty bacon, very industrial though, plastic and paint. Full bodied, smokey finish.

Bottle at the main DC December gathering. Poured a murky golden color with a white head. Lots of peated smoke in this one, like a super peated whiskey. Strange, I want to hate it, but sipping it made for a pretty enjoyable experience.

Bottle at the DC December Gathering #2. Thanks nimbleprop. Murky yellowish brown with off-white head. Aromas of huge peat and smoke, that’s about it. Tastes of huge peat and smoke, caramel. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

Fairly terrible. More peat than Townsend. Pours amber with decent head. Smokey as hell. Not much balance of any kind. Bottle shared by nimbleprop.

0,25L brygget 10/12, takk Kjetil (BKL 2014). - "Almost Undrinkable" caveat stamp. wasnt’t prepared for a dark honeyblond pour. Massive medicinal peat chlorine in the nose, Lagavulin and Laphroaig turf, over sweetish honeypop malts. Flabby maybe due to age, yet still keeping that balance between chloric peat and sweetish honeybread. Actually drinkable enough, a nice hint of coasts more rugged than the Black Forest.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle ’thnx’ to ships. As one of the people that gets absolutely repelled by anything even remotely smoked, this should be a real treat. Therefor, this specific rating should be put into perspective as well...
Pours clear, dark blonde. Good to big white head. Smell is awefully peated and only peated. Taste is super unbalanced , so peated it becomes bitter. I DO NOT get the idea behind this, as I can not see how this is enjoyable, accept for giving it to people and be a disaster tourist, just like this 77-hips guy did

Light brown to amber in color, aroma is very peat dominant, smoke, oaky and sweet malt. Taste is less peaty and a touch sweet from the malt and has some light raisins. Did not think this was drinkable and even the label states this, was pleasantly surprised and quite enjoyed it.
