sundahlm (15) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2015
The aroma is strong of smoke and whiskey - really strong and Scottish. Malts are clearly roasted and gives a coffee aroma behind the smoky single malt whiskey. Nicel black/brown color in the light. Therefore almost no way to see through. Foam is brown foam, with a frothy head - nicely topped on a strong ale, that is almost more of a stout. Taste is heavy with a soft umami feel and a long lasting strong bitter finish. Feel of the palate has what I might call a medium body - not really overwhelming in the mouth but not at all missing energy. It has a soft carbonation which combined with a creamy feel gives the soft feel - almost velvety.

Lilja (1944) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2015
Flaska från SB, Smak och doft av malt, karamell, honung, torkad frukt som fikon och plommon, läder och toner av rök. Lagom sötma med viss syrlighet. Fruktig och bra balans.

jonas (5996) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle. Beautiful dark red, low off-white head. Smoke, vanilla and plum nose. Nice smoky base, a bit brandy, vanilla/oak. Medium body, mellow mouthfeel. Good balance. Heavy on the smoke, but quite nice.

Vignale (2371) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2014
Flaska från SB, julöl 2013. Mörk rödbrunfärg, lågt snabbt försvinnande skum. Tung maltsöt doft med fikon, läder och lite rök främst. Söt relativt stor kropp, lätt vinös, inte lika fina nyanser som i doften. Mer sirap, fudge och karamell. Väl söt men helt okej som vintervärmare till en lagrad ost.

TEJA (1520) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Big lastning brown head. Clowdy dark brown beer. Big smokey aroma with dark caramell malt. The smoke also dominate the taste. Big residual sweetness and body. Too sweet to enoy in lager amounts.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 24, 2014
0.33 l bottle, thanks Petteri! Slightly hazy dark reddish brown color. Aromas of earthy smoke and bacon. Sweet taste of dark bread, tarry, bacony and earthy smoke. Some berries and raisins. Smokiness masks maltiness but this is still fairly pleasant.
