2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Schouskjelleren, Oslo courtesy of Cunningham. Deep amber to chesnut coloured with a tan head. Moderate smoky aroma with hints of smoked meat, malt and caramel. Sweet, mildly smoky and caramely with a light bitterness. Nice enough, but not quite my cup of tea.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small offwhite head. Hazy reddish amber body with light carbonation. Roasty earthy wooden aroma with mealy caramelly notes. Dryish roasty smoky juniper taste with fruity creosote notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish juniper and wild berries aftertaste with resiny wooden fruity notes. Maybe some rye, too. Interesting, vivid and different. Drinkable, too. (0.2l draft at brewpub.)

Small glass, tap at the brewpub. Muddy brown body, low head, good lacing. Malt-fruity nose with restrained smoked malts. Flavours of smoked malts mixed with citrus and chocolate. Nice bitter tail. Medium bodied. A different, likable brew (Oslo 10.12.2013).
