Pours dark brown with a lovely mocha head. Dark copper hue when held to light. Sweet, smokey, thick, and creamy. I’ve had barley wines before, but this sets a new standard. This is a most supreme tipple.

Bendrixian (1066) - 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!

johndoughty (3859) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Brown with a small head. Slightly sweet with an unusual nutty flavour. Different and dangerous.

CH-303 (1359) - 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 (974) - 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 (77) - 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 (220) - 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..,

SPDickerman (913) - Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours dark murky brown with a thin ring of light beige fizz. Smells smokey and of vanilla. Taste is caramel, smoke, hints of vanilla, and a touch of booze. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Nøgne Ø Sunturnbrew finishes with a soft lingering sweetness.

Sebilinz (439) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown body with tan head. Aroma is roasted malts smoke and some alcohol. Taste is caramel sweetness with dried fruits, some herbs and smoke. Aftertaste is medium bitter with roasted malts and smoke. Nice complex one.

matis (72) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle. Hazy, dark brown with rubby flashes. Wet woody smoke, roasted grains, some peat, some ash, caramel - superb beginning. Taste. Smoke again, sweet roasted caramel, dry fruits, raisins, plum, red wine notes, earth, chocolate, coffee liquier, bitter aftertaste. Full body, flat carbonation - everything plays just perfect here. Brilliant!
