COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Dense tiny-bubbled brownish-blond head. Body is deep mahogny brown with good clarity. Initial aroma of sourish brown bread and faint cheese. Then a pleasant meaty smokiness take over. Taste is balanced sweet/dry malty. Meaty and woody smoke character. Discreetly hopped. Faint brown suger tones. Easy on the palate, smooth and silky. Sweet-accented rounded finish. Good stuff.

visionthing (2989) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2012

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 30, 2012
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a dark brown small white head settles to a ring and leaves very little lacing on the glass. The aroma is smoke, a bit of roast, and a little bit of bacon. Initial taste has a bit of sweetness with some smoky and woody flavors. The finish has a bit of ash and is quite drying. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Not but, but I’ve certainly had better smoked beers.

Rökig doft, små toner av skinka, liten sälta men i det store och hela ganska tunn.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle from The Bottle Shop. Drunk on train from Walmer to Ashford after visiting Plough at Ripple. Always travel well prepared. Very deep brown colour with lasting dark beige head. Smoked game aroma. Not sausage or bacon but way gamier in the meat smoke stakes here. Touch of peaty whisky smoke. Rich in the mouth. Smooth too. Rich smokey and mysterious. Some molasses and coal tar. Like licking a bikers leather jacket thats been made of venison hide. Rather stunning if I am being honest. Almost as stunning as view over Dover coming in by train. It has great finesse for such a beer. Finish has more of the smoke some toffee and some ashtray smokiness. Bit like a bikers pub at the end of the night. Yes leather and ashtray and smoked venison. A beer I wont forget in a hurry. Entertaining. Smooth slightly sweet toffee malt in mouth

esp0r (2135) - NORWAY - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle shared at my friend Ed’s house
Dark dark brown with red tints, big tanned head. Smells of smoke, fireplace and roasted malts. Taste is quite malty, good sweetness and alot of smoke of course, but it’s not as powerful as the title might indicate. Some oily feel, but not any near perfect, nice quite bitter finish.
The story behind all this is of course that this is not a NØ made beer but a winner in the home brew competition, and there is no doubt that NØ’s own smoke beer, Sunturnbrew, is much better

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pours hazy chestnut with ruby edges and clingy splotchy tan head. Nose is smoked vienna malty, earthy, with notes of brown sugar, peat, and charred malt. Tastes somewhat sweet, very smoky and malty, with a medium palate heft. Gets a bit smokier as it warms, with the hops taking more of a center stage. This one is very good.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2012
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pours murky brown colour with small head. Aroma of smoke, malts, mild caramel, yeast and some fruity notes. Flavour of mild smoky wood, lactic acid, malts, spicy notes and some goose berry. Has probably seen it’s best days as the lactic acid is a bit disturbing.

lusikka (6575) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2012
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pours a deep amber brown colour with a small white head. Aroma of light smoke, mild chocolate and some lactic acid. Flavour of toasted malts, bread, light smoke, bitter hops, sweet dried fruits, tar and wood. Lactic acid is present in the flavour as well. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a finish of bitter hops and some malts. This keg is somehow contaminated I guess.
