"Whisky Beer"
A superb balanced beer with ’smokey’ overtones from peated malt. With a measure of English Whisky from St. George’s Distillery in Norfolk, it is rich in flavour.

Bottle from Waitrose. Poured a clear copper, with a thin white head. Big aroma of peaty whisky, iodine and sweet malts. Some smoky notes in the flavour, with dried fruit and straw. Finish was earthy, with light vanilla and more peat.

500ml bottle at home. Appearance: clear ambe, with a medium, off-white head. Aroma: smoked ham, leather Taste: smoke, ham in, leather and the finish is quite bitter and harsh aftertaste. thin body, average carbonation. Aroma is o a good rauchbier, but the problem is the quite harsh inish.

Foffern (1441) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a medium, off-white head. Aroma of smoke, meat, wood and leather. Whisky in the background. Nice! More smoke in the flavour along with wood, leather and a harsh and dry bitter aftertaste. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Has a wonderful rauchbier-like aroma but the taste is unbalanced and quite bitter.

daje (2757) - NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle at Grünerløkka Brygghus, march 25th 2014. Dark golden body without a head, soft carbonation. Aroma is malty with peated hints, weak taste of bread, sweet caramel, lightly peated. Thin watery body which does not do the taste any favour. I’m usually a fan of peated beers, though I find this falling short due to being a bit too lightweighty.
