Ingredients: Pilsnermalt, peated malt, crystal malt, Munich malt, hallertau and Tettnang hops, German lager yeast and Grimstad water.

A good beer. Peat right off the bad, although as many have pointed out it’s fairly tame, lightly tanic, balanced sweetness, easy to drink, light meatiness but more on the salty peat side.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep brown nearly black with a small white head. Aroma is fairly subdued, some meaty and basic grain notes, a bit leather and earthy. Flavor starts with a bit of cocoa and roast that is very subdued, picking up some earthy notes and the peat comes in strong, the scotch character coming through the finish and a lingering pipe tobacco. Medium body and a soft carbonation.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Pours a deep brown with a nice tan head and beautiful lacing. The nose is light smoke, dark chocolate and bacon. As it warms more earthy tones start to emerge. Taste follows the nose. Nice smoke and earthy characteristics. Clean and the slightly sweet nose does not come to the palate. Good, good beer.

13.03.2012. 0,5l Bottle. Batch 677, BB 13.08.2013. Vertshuset Skarven, Tromsø. Black colour with a thin layeres white head. Aroma is dry bitter with notes of smoke. Not very heavy but smooth, nice and very well balanced with the rest of the flavours of the beer. Very distinct flavours of burnt malt and sugar guves the beer a kind ox whiskey touch. God beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daje (2609) - NORWAY - MAR 13, 2012
Bottle at Tilt Dark brown body, light beige big head. A shy smoky aroma, with roasted malt, hops. Not much smoke in taste, but the grassy hops combined with malts and chocolate is still enogh to make this an enjoyable beer.
