2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aug ’14. As my last beer in Sweden, I found a 0.33 l bottle of this in Systembolaget in Upplands Väsby. It poured clear brown body with small head. Very smoked aroma, besides typical pleasant notes there were some burnt plastic, too. Flavor was lightly sweetish, again smoked, wood, peat, charcoal, just a hint of smoked ham. Thinner in body, so did not gave away really complex feel. Finish was shorter, slightly sour, smokey with almost only peat. Pleasant, but a bit too peaty and that simplicity doesn’t help it. Just okay.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle, dark amber with low head. Aroma is heavy and peaty, might be som caramel and some herbs but it’s very faint. Taste is dry and peaty, powerful smoked notes. Not a beer I will long for but not undrinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark amber with a low off white head. Aromas of smoke, tar, and not much else that’s discernible. Taste is smoke and tar and faint hints of caramel and rye bread. A bit too one-dimensional.
