BOTTLE. Shared. Poured a muddy brown with the aroma of burnt tires, got the taste of smoked bacon & bbq sauce, was like a meal buy the end of it! Sourced from Cellarbrations @ Capel

Desverger (3055) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle from BarleyWine, CPH - fuzzy brown pour with a big beige head. Aroma is smokey malty, aroma and taste of bready toasty malty, dark dried fruit, caramel, treacle, wooden notes. Abit more smoke than was expecting.

Rangi (628) - NEW ZEALAND - SEP 5, 2014
Dark murky brown poor with a thin head. Nice lasting aroma of smoke, smokey peat. Taste is smooth, slightly thick and syrupy. Quiet sweet. Very good over all. Really enjoying this wee sweet smokey syrupy beverage.

asheft (2667) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from LCBO. Grainy cereal grain pumpernickel aroma with promise of ethanol. Cloudy ruddy dark brown under a persistent, beige, lacy blanket. Smoky, boozy flavour that is sticky sweet and quite phenolic (smoky) with moderate bitterness. Cloying sweet finish, moderate carbonation, full body.

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!

vanelst (153) - AUSTRIA - AUG 28, 2014
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 (1396) - 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!
