Bottle from humlebingen.com, cheers! Lots of peat, asphalt and iodine above all. At least too much for my liking. It also has got a honeyish, citrusy touch and is surprisingly soft in terms of the mouthfeel. The aftertaste comes again with a punch of iodine. Well brewed but I guess I just don’t like being reminded of an army field hospital while drinking beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Den Nordiske Ølhandel, Copenhagen; batch 879, brewed 25/10/12, bb 25/10/14 (tasted Jan 2014)
Cloudy deep blond color with quite small head, not persistent. The aroma is intense, very smoked, nothing as fat as the Bamberg beers or iodine as the Islay whiskey; it’s closer to a smoked mackerel; some iodine appears later. Good body strength; moderately sweet; the smoke takes strong wood notes and some light acidity that is out of tune; it’s a bit salty; correctly bitter.
Interesting, but the aroma is much better than the flavor and final.

Brutal. In der Nase Schinken, Kabelbrand, Torf, leicht fruchtige Noten. Am Gaumen etwas Schinken, prägnante Süße, recht schmal.

Sampled from bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub, thanks Jaap! Murky yellowish brown color, virtually no head. Aroma is huge huge intense smoke, peat, fingerpaint and iodine. Taste is surprisingly doable, peat, iodine, fingerpaint and smoke again but way more balanced and soft than you would expect from the aroma. Pretty weird beer.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
25 cL bottle in bar. Surprisingly clear presentation. Intense aroma of peat and smoke hits you as soon as you open the bottle and persists in taste, which is surprisingly not over the top/unbalanced. As someone who loves peaty and smoky Scotch, this was amazing. Tastes like what Ardbeg would make if they produced beer. The peat and smoke stayed in my mouth the rest of the evening, so perhaps best as a nightcap or alone. Despite the "Almost Undrinkable" label, it’s actually one of the most easy-drinking beers I’ve ever had. Would love to get it in a larger bottle.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Barwa: złota, zmętniona.
Pana: niezbyt obfita, jasnokremowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, dość trwała.
Zapach: dość intensywny, wędzony, prócz torfu wyczuwalne również aromaty drzewne, spalone kable oczywiście też są.
Smak: piwo o dużej pełni słodowej, na pierwszym planie oczywiście wędzonka, wyczuwalne również nuty owocowe jak w ale.
Wysycenie: średnie, jak najbardziej pasuje.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a trade with Cunningham, huge thanx for that rare one!!
Pours hazy orange with a high, creamy white head. Smell has tons of smoke and some whiskey, as well as some blackforest ham. Starts with a bunch of smoke, paired with ham, whiskey and a sweetish yeast note. Middle part has also tons of smoke, sweet malt notes and again lots of blackforest ham. Goes into a (what a surprise) strong smokey finish with some whiskey and again some smoked ham. The most smoked beer for me so far, but it’s not really undrinkable. I like it :-)

Bottle. Unclear body, small white head. Aroma is Islay whisky. Flavour is much of the same, but there is also a sourish and yeasty hint. Smokey and light sweet finish. (07.02.2015)
