Viscosity of this stuff is a first thing you’ll be surprised of. Experience on its own indeed! Taste is nicely balanced. Personally, I’m not fan of smoky beers, nor whiskies but Sunturnbrew is far off that classification taste wise. Easy to drink, hence dangerous!

Smoked malt with bacon, berries, a little citrus bite make for an intriguing if not confusing taste sensation. Rich body and alcohol level speak to the potential of aging. I am really at a loss to evaluate this one in a definitive fashion. Quite unique, however you cut it!

smoked malts and dark fruits. Caramel sweet. Bitter ending. with bacon aftertaste. If you like these kind of beers, this one is a must. Complex , interesting and very Norwegian. I can see myself sipping this in Norwegian woods, warming myself on a campfire.What the hell, i´m gonna do that one day.

Incredible creamy viscous dark red brown beer with huge small bunker head. Smoke in the aroma although not too excessive. Taste is a bit too balanced though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lesifflebiere (1291) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
Rouge brunâtre, avec un col de mousse couleur érable, et une texture mi-épaisse. Le nez est de malts fumés, de vin rouge, de sucre d’orge, le tout étant très terreux. Très sucrée et dense en bouche, puissante dans tous ses aspects (fumée, sucre, même les houblons en finale), sirupeuse et liquoreuse, elle est pratiquement inclassable, empruntant à au moins cinq styles sans s’établir fermement nulle part. Ceci dit, une chose est sûre, c’est une expérience couronnée de succès.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2014 BOTTLE 50CL from Cunningham. Thank, Henrik! Look: hazy dark chestnut-brown, beige frothy head. Aroma: intensely smoky, dried prunes and sweet caramel, dark bread spice, fortified wine. Taste: rich flavour, not as smoky as aroma suggests, dried fruit, tye bread, well hidden alcohol, some bitterness and some roasty notes too, black currant tartness/astringency. Excellent, world class brew!

Bottle. Pours brown with small, quick disappearing head. Aroma: smoke, peated, dark and red fruits, licorice, a bit of alcohol. Taste: the same like aroma. Small bitterness. Nearly flat carbonation, full body and oily texture. Good beer to slowly tasting.

Beese (1905) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Draught at The White Horse, Parson’s Green on 24 Nov 2012. Poured black, with a very thin tan head. Aroma of smoked malts, toffee and dark fruits. Full mouth feel. Slight medicinal note in the taste, but in a good way. Also some caramel and earthy grains. Finish was peat, treacle, nice burnt bitterness and some coffee.

Parametry potężne (50 IBU, przy 11% alkoholu, 26% ekstraktu), do tego wędzone słody i słód żytni. W zapachu intensywna wędzonka, paloność i alkohol. Wbrew pozorom ładnie Smak to istna rozkosz Wędzone słody, ciasteczka toffi, paloność, żywice amerykańskie, trochę suszonych owoców (śliwki, rodzynki), czekolada, kawa, w końcu wytrawna goryczka z słonym posmakiem i grzejący przełyk szlachetny alkohol. Piwo świetnie zbilansowane, o dziwo pijalne (choć jedno to aż nadto !) i pomimo oleistośći i cieżaru dość szybko znikające ze szklanki. Napewno nie dla każdego, ale warto się z tym mocarzem zmierzyć
