Brown with beige head. Sweet, caramel, dough, alcohol and smoke. Sticky with thick body. Not a fan.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is malty and smokey, no doubt. Taste is molasses, rich smooth malts, and smokey wood. The smoke and the creaminess really comes out in the mid palate followed by a mildly bitter finish. Truely interesting and would probably pair well with BBQ’s and braais. Like it. A toast to Norwegian craft! For those of you who might be in Lakeland, go get some smoked brisket from Fat Maggie’s to accompany this beer!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice chocolate with thin creamy head, lace stays around forever. Aroma of smoked meat and a slightly sweet secondary smell. Definitely taste the smoke up front with a huge bitter toffee hit behind it. Balanced out with sweet malty flavours. Coats the mouth incredibly. Nice, slight carbonation and perfectly weighted. This beer really hides the big ABV well

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Peaty aroma with a certain salt marsh oceanic peaty quality; smoke and sweet figs. On the palate it isn’t as sweet as I thought it would be. Liquid smoke like and hot with bacon fat saltyness and malts. Very complex brew. worth aging!

Bottle. Brown with a small head. Slightly sweet with an unusual nutty flavour. Different and dangerous.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Black brown, tan though very little head.
Aroma: Smoke, dark malt. Coffee?
Taste: Dark malt. Smoke, but not the pleasant wood fire kind, more of a house-on-fire kind... A bit flat. Bitterness, coffee hints. Slightly disappointed, unfortunately.
Bought: Erzbierschof, 500 ml, CHF 10.50

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Svært mørk brun med tynt beige skum. Kvae, tjære og mørke frukter i bakgrunnen. Røkt smak men med mye fruktighrt av mørke bær. Mye som skjer mens denne drikken sirkulerer i munnen. Kort

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Half pint at post office vaults, Birmingham. Smell is of whiskey and bacon, taste is of whiskey, sweetness and an aftertaste of bacon. This is an utterly ridiculous beer. Way out of my league. But I can see why people would enjoy it!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours very dark almost black, with slightly tanned head. Aroma is smoky, with some dark fruit notes. Taste is malty with smoke coming through. I am not a fan of smoked beers..,
