Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Holy hell. Complex. So much going on. Smokey, richly malty, with intense sweet dark fruit (acai, blackberry, blueberry,) chocolate, toffee, caramel. This beer is a damn meal. It has the dark fruitiness of a Belgian, the roast and chocolaty richness of a stout and the malt complexity of a good English Old Ale, with a touch of smoke, hops and a long, lingering finish. Its a prime candidate for 2-3 years of cellaring.

Brown with beige head. Sweet, caramel, dough, alcohol and smoke. Sticky with thick body. Not a fan.

S_Side_Smitty (433) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is malty and smokey, no doubt. Taste is molasses, rich smooth malts, and smokey wood. The smoke and the creaminess really comes out in the mid palate followed by a mildly bitter finish. Truely interesting and would probably pair well with BBQ’s and braais. Like it. A toast to Norwegian craft! For those of you who might be in Lakeland, go get some smoked brisket from Fat Maggie’s to accompany this beer!

whoisghost (31) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2014
Pours a nice chocolate with thin creamy head, lace stays around forever. Aroma of smoked meat and a slightly sweet secondary smell. Definitely taste the smoke up front with a huge bitter toffee hit behind it. Balanced out with sweet malty flavours. Coats the mouth incredibly. Nice, slight carbonation and perfectly weighted. This beer really hides the big ABV well

Bendrixian (1069) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Peaty aroma with a certain salt marsh oceanic peaty quality; smoke and sweet figs. On the palate it isn’t as sweet as I thought it would be. Liquid smoke like and hot with bacon fat saltyness and malts. Very complex brew. worth aging!

Bottle. Brown with a small head. Slightly sweet with an unusual nutty flavour. Different and dangerous.

CH-303 (1365) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Appearance: Black brown, tan though very little head.
Aroma: Smoke, dark malt. Coffee?
Taste: Dark malt. Smoke, but not the pleasant wood fire kind, more of a house-on-fire kind... A bit flat. Bitterness, coffee hints. Slightly disappointed, unfortunately.
Bought: Erzbierschof, 500 ml, CHF 10.50

Vighals (1005) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2014
Svært mørk brun med tynt beige skum. Kvae, tjære og mørke frukter i bakgrunnen. Røkt smak men med mye fruktighrt av mørke bær. Mye som skjer mens denne drikken sirkulerer i munnen. Kort

Tselloufc88 (90) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Half pint at post office vaults, Birmingham. Smell is of whiskey and bacon, taste is of whiskey, sweetness and an aftertaste of bacon. This is an utterly ridiculous beer. Way out of my league. But I can see why people would enjoy it!

borre_m (238) - NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
Pours very dark almost black, with slightly tanned head. Aroma is smoky, with some dark fruit notes. Taste is malty with smoke coming through. I am not a fan of smoked beers..,
