Bottle,from Systembolaget: Dark hazy red/black colour, nice creamy Head. Aroma is sweet malty, dark choclate, raisins, tar, smokey, alcy, and a nice smokey/bitter ending, Flavor had a nice cramy mouth feeling of smokey,tar, citrus, vanilla,dark choclate,werry round mouth feeling, that was a surpice for a beer who has a style as smokey. Enyway nice medium body,and a nice creamy sweet chocolate/smokey finish, This reminds moore than a IMP Porter/Batlywine than a smokey beer. Well done Mr. Jikun!

berlinoise2go (675) - NORWAY - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle (50cl) at Olympen, Oslo. Batch 474 (BB Dec 2014). Murky dark brown colour. Modest, but quite persistent, beige head. Fabulous aroma of dark, smoked, sweet malt, licorice, tar, wood, chocolate. Full-bodied, slick mouthfeel, pleasantly soft carbonation. Good balance. Alcohol warmth is there, but not so prominent as anticipated. Tremendous drinkability for such a rich brew.

ClubGonzo (4901) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2010 Finally got a hold of this one on Henrik, Bergen - on tap. Pours a nut brown hazy body with a discreet, off-white head. Smell is licorice, pine and resin. From the first sip I can tell this is really good, and really something else: strong notes of hoppy licorice and cough syrup, pine, grass, oak. A very mellow smoked tone in the aftertaste. Smooth and slightly oily palate, without overdoing it. Beautifully blended, and well deserving the hype it has received in the Norwegian craft beer scene. Sunturnbrew is another winner from Nøgne Ø, and one I’d like to see in the shelves of Vinmonopolet as well!

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2010
500ml bottle. Pours a murky amber-brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is solid. Lots of sweet and spicy, deeper toffees and caramels. Brown sugar, rum, smoke, dark fruits, citrus oranges, wood, peat, and berries. Flavor is similar, but seems to lack the edge that the aroma had. Oranges and toffees mixed together up front with some toasted caramels. Dark fruits, a light chocolate, berries, leather, and a light, peppery wood. The smoke comes out in the finish, but doesn’t blend quite like it did in the aroma. A noticable alcohol warmth as this finishes rich and sweet with a light peaty smoke and very light bitterness. Mostly dry with some residual sweetness leaving a medium length aftertaste. Full, syrupy body with a light carbonation. Overall, a pretty cool barley wine. I guess this is listed as a smoked, but nonetheless, its a smoked barley wine. I liked the aroma a bit better than the flavor, but the subtle smoke adds a nice complexity. It gets a bit sweet at times, but solid.

sunevdj (3548) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle at home. Pours a clear brown with a small off-white head. Faint smells of smoked malts. Sweet with moderate aromas of smoked malts. Some residual sugars. Also hints of juniper? and alcohol. Full bodied with a medium carbonation. Dry finish with more aromas of smoked malts and a warming alcohol fealing.
