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.

Mad_Ferret (661) - SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2010
Dark clear red colour. Beige head. My bottle gushed like a volcano. Aroma was first almost overpowering and weird, but after a while it calms down. Its smoky and tary with a hint of dark fruits and caramel or burnt sugar, but not sweet at all. Taste is very burnt and a bit acidic bitter. Tobacco. A bit herbal almost. A touch (just a touch) of liquorice root. Actually a bit too burnt and dry for me. Like someone said, it’s almost more like a mix between beer and a smoky whisky.

50 cl bottle from Systembolaget in Nordstan, Göteborg
2010 vintage, bottle 894 of 1000. Brewed 2010-08-06, sampled on December 15, 2010
Beautiful, clear, deep dark red color, smallish light brown head. Smooth, smoky nose, very very nice! Also sweet scent, and a bit fruity. Dry, cocoa, wood, alcohol, some smoke taste. Damn I really hoped the taste would live up to the scent, but alas. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2010
Draught at Stockholm Beer and Whisky Festival 2010. Dark reddish brown color with creamy head. Thick smoky aroma of bacon and wood. Sweet toffeish bacon flavor with tar, wood and ginger. Very long smoky finish. Tastes like liquid bacon, nice. Seems drinkable at fist but after a while this feels more like a sipper.

mjs (4821) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2010
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized, long lasting and it had a light brown shading. Aroma had strongly smoke, whisky and peat. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. The flavours I found were smoke, roasted malts, peat, whisky, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste contained whisky and smoke. This beer was a bit too far away from beer and too close to whisky. Despite that it was a pleasure to drink.
