COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Malakias Andersson dömdes, mot sitt nekande, för att ha orsakat att nästan hela Köping brann ned 1889. Vi vet inte om han var skyldig men han inspirerade oss att brygga denna rököl. Vi har bryggt den med bl.a. whiskymalt från ön Islay utanför Skottlands västkust. Humlen är Amarillo, EKG och Wiliamette.
2010: Med Bowmore-malt 2011-2012: MedLaphroig malt.

teddybeer (2344) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 26, 2012
[Thanks to omhper]. Poured a black beer with tan head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is heavy smoky. Flavour is smoky as aroma, roasty and an aftertaste with an average duration that reminds me like if I were smelling ash. Carbonation is medium. Body is light to medium.

tourtrappist (35) - SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2012
Smokey as a Single Malt Whisky but without the real punch. Strömsholms claims that they strive for balance which is fine - but I’d prefer a stronger mix. But it’s really good anyway :-)

jolo (921) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle 33cl (Thanks a lot SaintMatty) A clear red-brown colour with a medium high, foamy, good lacing, beige head. An aroma of roasted malt, caramel, wood and smoke. The taste is heavy sweet, medium bitter and light salty. A medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a medium long duration. A smooth and well balanced smoked beer. Heavy in smoke flavor but not over the top.

TheJestersBeer (2138) - SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2012
330ml bottle, 2011 vintage. Pours a deep copper, with a beige head. The aroma is very smokey, lots of Islay elements, iodine, ashes, but also a note that reminds me of chlorine, or some sort of detergent, and it puts me off a bit. Caramel, faint diacetyl, quite spicy. Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, creamy CO2. The taste is also very smokey, lots of smoked malt, iodine, peat, seaweed (?), caramel, cinnamon, leather, cured meat. The chlorine touch is not that evident in the taste, which is a benefit. Quite well balanced, the smoked malt leaves a dry, ashy finish, with a lingering alcohol burn. (2012-01-29)

hackobock (1725) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget, 2011 edition. Dark brown/black, small off-white head that diseappers fast. Smokey, the Islay malt is distinct, a sweetness is present as well. Taste goes from sweet to smokey with a light bitterness linking the two together. I would prefer a creamier palate, a mild smokieness is lingering in the mouth after drinking.

NordicV (1229) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2012
Mörkt brun med dragning åt svart. Smutsvitt skum som försvinner snabbt. Doften är nästan Islay whisky rakt av. Torv, trä och rökighet, bara alkoholrivigheten saknas. Inte så extrem som Paradox Smokehead. Kroppen är inte så fyllig. Rökigheten dominerar, whiskey och cigarr.

_angst_ (3051) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on January 1. 2011 vintage. Pours dark chestnut brown with a small fizzy off-white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet and packed with peat, smoke and wood. Smells quite similar to Islay whisky. Taste is sweet and malty with some smoke, peat, tar and wood. Quite balanced with a smooth mouthfeel. Finish is slightly dry with smoke.

Reddish brown with a small tan head. Smokey ! Smoke, malt and some sour bitterness. Medium body with a sour, bitter after taste. ( unbalanced )
