50 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Lovely barley wine with fair hop amount. The smokey note is vague and evenfurther quickly disappearing. Sweet with the notorious dried fruit taste profile which is nicely balanced with the proper hop burden. As always Nøgne Ø is the provider of excellent ales. The beer is wrongly categorized as a smoked; it should have been classified as a barley wine-style.

(50 cl bottle) It had a sweet flavour of cupcakes, oranges, caramel and dark bread. Fairly complex and interesting, I didn’t actually know this was a barley wine when I had it and had problems getting the style right.

pilsnerrogge (2827) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2010
Pours dark -almost black- brown with a small, creamy head. Aroma is smoke and bacon with some suble notes of chocolate. Sweet, thick syrup-y mouth feel. Flavour is quite sweet and has notes of charcoal, smoke and warming alcohol. Interesting.

A damn fine beer, I would drink it until my liver gave way. Nothing offensive at all, just beer bliss. Would get again fo sho. I dont remember it being that smokey, but i really dug it, tons of weird herbal flavors, light in body and easy to drink. had hints of lipton, unique and tasty.

Furseth (2101) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2010
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!
