SPDickerman (917) - Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours dark murky brown with a thin ring of light beige fizz. Smells smokey and of vanilla. Taste is caramel, smoke, hints of vanilla, and a touch of booze. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Nøgne Ø Sunturnbrew finishes with a soft lingering sweetness.

matis (83) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle. Hazy, dark brown with rubby flashes. Wet woody smoke, roasted grains, some peat, some ash, caramel - superb beginning. Taste. Smoke again, sweet roasted caramel, dry fruits, raisins, plum, red wine notes, earth, chocolate, coffee liquier, bitter aftertaste. Full body, flat carbonation - everything plays just perfect here. Brilliant!

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 27, 2014
Almost black body and stable head. Smokey, sweet (Belgian?) yeast and malts, wholewheat bread and leaves. Very nice and really quite smoky. Taste is as expected with some sweetness starting until the herbal hops and more smoke kick in. Juicy brown sugar - pie like - ending. Nice! (50cl bottle from De Hopduvel)

Couleur brun tirant sur l orangé Mousse fine et persistante Nez alcool compote cerise complexe Bouche aussi complexe beaucoup de sucre résiduel vanille chewing gum, fumé manque équilibre de l amertume. Une bombe étonnante mais lion de l acceptation classique de la bière Palais agréable très grosse longueur en bouche Dans l ensemble un expérience a ne pas manquer, mais pas tout les matins

Cunningham (4329) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2014
Appearance: Clear deep nutty color with a white head. Some lacing.
Aroma: Mild round peat, malty and some leather.
Palate: Medium to full body. Slightly sweet and moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation. Oily texture.
Taste: Deep malty, leather, mild peat and some fruity notes. Well masked alcoho.
Overall impression: First time I tried this I did not fancy it at all. This was at a tutored tasting with Mr Cogo. Found it absolutely drinkable this time. But nothing I will drink a lot of..
Personal stats: Bottle (Batch 903-A) at Havnelageret in Fredrikstad, Norway.

teddybeer (2165) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 13, 2014
[From my backlog, tasted @ El Lúpulo feroz and shared with andres and Vanesa]. Brown colour with a minimal and quickly diminishing white head. Aroma has notes of smoked meat, some roasted notes as well. Flavor is slightly sweet at the beginning dominated by smoked notes and some wooden notes.

Erasmus_ro (1270) - Alabama, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle, consumed 09/05/14, BBE 02/22. Pours a dark orange brown with a small, beige head. Aroma is tar candy, decent caramel, smoke, salty liquorice, tar. Tarry, smoky caramel malt. Taste is semi-dry with smoke and tar, decent caramel, some salty liquorice. Turns somewhat sweeter on the finish. Smoky pinetree, juniper. Quite full, somewhat carbonated. Not very drinkable. Hard to get down. The half a liter bottle is definitely meant to be shared.
