Bottle at the Copenhagen beer festival. Poured a clear brown with an off-white head. Aroma consisted of malts and a bit of bitterness. Flavor was oddly salty, perhaps smoky? Lots of malts present as well.

Picked this up at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. I couldn’t believe that they actually had this beer! There is this Alaskan eskimo-type guy on the front of on the bottle. He looks pretty cold. Nice thin head sitting on top that fades away eventually. Not black in color, but a very dark brown in color. Nice sweet aroma. It is a bit misleading. You smell the sweet aroma with the alcohol, but you don’t smell the smoke or wood. Slight smoke aroma comes through as the beer warms up. VERY creamy palate. Nice sublte smoky flavor. Pretty good beer. Leather subtle flavor as well. Overall, pretty good smoked. Nice smoky subtle flavor with an extremely creamy beer.
