Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours deep red chestnut with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma has sweet caramel, light reda pples, oak and mild smoke. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour is powerfully smoky, some bacon, oak and light sticky sweetness. Despite being very smoky, it is still quite fresh and drinkable (and reminds me of our Oaked’n’Smoked :o) )

On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration, cheers to Meilby the tapmeister! ;-) Deep nut brown body, small off-white head. Aroma is dark fruits, oak, cognac, booze, vanilla, hints of smoke and dark malts in the back. The smokiness seems very much subdued compared to the regular version. Taste is booze, heavy dry oak tones, smoke and cured ham. Hints of cognac and dark malts. Intensely oaked; in fact this may be the most wood-marked beer I’ve ever had. A fun experience, and another tasty beer from Nøgne Ø.
