When you pour it up so the beer is dark yellow little dark brown in color. The foam is against some pretty white, but you have to work to get it up. The foam has flavors of hops, malt and orange At first the smell you get to a boot of smoke and orange and orange with lots of cloves. You get a "Flach Back" to the man himself was in kindergarten and Christmas fiddled with orange and whole cloves that you poked into the orange. You also get some knäckiga tones, dried fruits, with a little sweetness and a bit of honey and syrup, looking a little more orange. Brödig little dull and bitter tones. Direct feel to the tone of the smoked beer. (But it does not take over) Again, my "Flach Back" of the flavors of orange and whole cloves. Now, I was ambivalent and do not know if I should drink, or pour it out, a total surprise. But I take a sip. After the initial reaction subsided, I start now find more notes. Is a moderate-balanced bitter, some sweet, some brödig. Finds little dark syrup, dried fruits and a little more seasoning. The beer is a bit "dry" in the taste, then comes a little dented up.
