Wow, this is the smokiest beer I ever had. It’s like Ardbeg in beer form. Looots of smoke, peat and tar in there. Halfway through the beer I notice it was 12 % ABV which really doesn’t come through at all. I would have guessed for somewhere around 6-7 %. Big body on this one, bearing all that smoke and tar. Nice, but also very special. The brewery isn’t running anymore so if you see one of these, try it, it might be the only chance you get.

thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle @ Nya Tröls, Malmö.
Pours dark chestnut, almost black. Small creamy, off-white film head. Powerful smoky aroma, caramel, vinious, bacon, light meat. Medium carbonation, light dry but also kinda light mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, very malty, lots of smoke, light vinious but still manages to hide the alcohol amazingly well.

Bottle, 33cl - Brown amber beer with almost no head. Aroma is malty with notes of smoked malt, blue cheese, caramel, smoked ham. Flavor is malty with notes of blue cheese, smoked malt, smoked peat and honey. Very, very different beer but also very interesting.

fiulijn (18577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle at På Besök, Malmö
Hazy red mahogany color; small creamy head. It has a nice smoke aroma, but also paper and dirty water; it doesn’t surprise me, with Ölands. It has caramel flavor, medium sweet, with some smoke, ashes, malt, paper, and very light liquorice; chaotic. It has a medium-low bitterness, with more evident liquorice in the end (disturbing), the final is rather short. It doesn’t show the alcohol content, this is maybe the most positive trait.
At such a gravity they had the opportunity to brew a great thing, it didn’t happen.

TBone (15913) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2009
Bottle vintage 2008 @SBWF 2009.
Clear amber color, no head. Strong intensive aroma of smoke, old cheese and wood. Liquerish palate. Lots of smoke, wet wood, alcohol with sweetish notes. Odd unique smoke beer, like a smoked barley wine - as such some similarities to Ungstrup’s reserva.

Bottled@SBWF2009. Amber colour, not much head. Aroma is smoke, alcohol, sweet wood with mild toasted notes. Flavour is alcohol, wood, mild smoke and also some toasted notes. Big smoked wet wooden aftertaste along with some mild herbal notes. Hides the ABV extremely well.

TEJA (2194) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2009
Pours without any significant foam. Dark red-brown clear ale. Good aroma of tar and smoke with some sweet caramell. The taste has lots of smoke and caramell to give a real nice blend with a litle fruits ass well. The big alcohole content is not noticable but just lifts the aromas.
