COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: I de enorme karelske skove har der længe været tradition for fremstilling af tjære af fyrretræerne. Som overfladebehandlingsmiddel til de træbyggede huse og både har den spredt sin karakteristiske og intense duft hvor mennesker holdt til. Det sætter sit præg på folkesjælen – og derfor kan man i vore dages Finland sagtens få en ”tervasnapsi” (tjæresnaps) til sin øl på den lokale.
Ambitionen med denne sorte og tyktflydende øl er at fange atmosfæren fra en rygende mil midt inde i skoven, hvor røg, harpiks, skovbund og frisk trætjære danner duftkulissen. Ved brug af en pæn portion røgmalt, Saaz humle, enebær og en speciel finsk tjære ekstrakt har øllet udviklet en distinkt duft af røg samt en undertone af sødlig tjære. Den første mundfornemmelse er ret abrupt og tør, og præget af røg og røget skinke, men den efterfølges hurtigt af blid tjære, sødme og behagelige nuancer af skovbund og enebær. Eftersmagen er lang og præget af fyrrenåle, tjære og den sære bitterhed fra enebærrene. Overgæret.

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2010
Draft. A black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of sweet and roasted malt combined with light notes of dextrose, leading to a roasted and lightly coffeeish finish. The body is light.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2010
On tap. Pours black with a vague orange hue and a creamy beige head leaving a dense lacework. The nose has some roasted malt and a vague smoky touch. Medium body, some roasted accents, plenty of licorice and then distinct, fat smoke - perhaps a little ashes also - and juniper? The smoke is Bamberg-style. Ends dry with some bitterness. If you dig Smoked beers this is far from the worst. 161210

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2011
On tap at Ølfestival 2011. It’s a clear, dark brown beer with a minimal-sized off-white to beige head. Tar, burnt wood and some smoke in the aroma, like a dying bonfire somewhere deep in the forest. The same can be said of the flavor, it’s intensely bonfire-ish, with some tar and smoke. Tar, smoke and bonfire in the finish too. A bit heavy on the carbonation, medium to full body. A very demanding beer, but nice in many ways. 110527
