50 cl bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a deep brown color with a fairly small 1/2 finger thick light tan head. Light carbonation with faint spotty lacing. Aroma is esters, toasted malt, and faint smoke. Flavor is dark esters, roasted malt, and light smoke. Finish is somewhat bitter and vinous. Full body. A nice beer.

Pours a deep chestnut brown, with medium/small tan head. Dark sweet malt, caramel, peet moss, plum, roastiness, and a bit of smoke. Really dark and malty, sweet, and big. Tasty beer. Don’t know if I would call it a smoked.

500ml bottle. An awesome Wants List bonus beer from dchmela! Pours a mostly clear dark burgundy with a slow forming but lasting tan head. Aroma is a nice blend of light peaty smoke, ripe dark fruits, and earthy spice. Flavor brings a meaty smoke more to the center, but well complimented by more ripe dark fruits, earthy malt notes, a little licorice and some grassy hops. A subtle but present warmth and good mouthfeel. This is a pretty cool blend between a smoked and barleywine, and would love to see how this is with a year or two on it. Thanks again Dave!

Bottle. This is too much beer for one man. This beer is a true mofo. Pours black with white head. Not as smoky as it is roasty. Pours like a syrup and has very little carbonation. Definitely a BW - so not sure why its in the Smoked category. Once again, Nøgne Ø does magic.

patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle Split this brew with James and Dallas. Pours insanely dark, deep amber/brown, with a thick, dank off-white head. Aroma of pepper, smoked malts, and hops. Full body with a spicy, tangy finish. Great brew.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2009 Pours a black cola colour with very little head. Strong, malty nose with sweet undertones. A very smoked flavor with a dark, rich malty undertone that lingers in your mouth. Very pleasant mouthfeel. Shared with jredmond and patrickfannon.

fobar (241) - Søgne, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2009
500ml bottle. Starts out very interesting but hard to place. Fine body. Would be perfect with a little more bitterness.

notalush (5124) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Pours a turbid dark brown, nearly still - for a relatively young barleywine, these is a lot of aged/oxidized character in the nose, along with smoke, dates, raisins, cherries, rum - low carbonation - some wood, char, peat smoke/scotch flavors - hints of plum and date, dark bread - fairly dry for something so strong, especially in the finish - meaty, bitter and roasty in the finish - a bit of alcohol heat on the tail - tastes prematurely aged, as the aroma suggests - I wonder what another year would do to it.

500 ml bottle; dark brown with tan head; aromas of peated malt, brown sugar, rye, plumes and dank fruit; quite yummy with mild peatyness, faint touch of meaty roast; rich, malty with a nice, dry finish; a tasty smoke-infused barleywine
