COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I Stjørdal har vi Norges eldste gjenlevende ølbryggetradisjon. Ølet brygges på samme måte i dag som det har vært gjort de siste 1000 år, med malt som er tørket over ild av veden fra treet or - som på trøndersk kaller "ørder". I dag brygges ølet til jul og andre høytider. Ørdeølet er vår honnør til denne tradisjonen, og våre forfedres råvareforedling - hvor vi har valgt å bruke den fantastiske råvaren som stjørdalsmaltet er som et krydder, men samtidig gi det en god plass i smaksbildet. Bør drikkes med respekt - kanskje helst stående. Ingredienser: Jonsvann, maltet korn, humle og gjær

bergstaden (1250) - Røros, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2014
Olmost black with a small brown head - Heavy smokey aroma - Heavy smoked malt body with some acidity in the back - Long lasting smoke finish - Not my kind of beer this

ej (703) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2014
Pours close to black with little to no head. Smoke and peat on the nose, with dried ham, liquorice and tar. Taste is slightly sour with moderate smoke and liquorice. Body is medium and co2 levels are soft.

visionthing (2733) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2014
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Smoky aroma with wooden notes, malt, sour berries, peat and hints of tar and grapefruits. Smoky, quite sour and wooden with earthy and vinous notes. Certainly a lot going on here, but not quite my thing. The smokiness is nice, but doesn’t go so well with the more sour and acidic notes for me. Interesting enough!

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Wooden smoke gets overtaken by acidic grapefruit, two powerfully disharmonious components which sadly fight from aroma to finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the dark brown.
-Malt character and depth is not in display at all here.
-The acrid fruitiness gets quickly unnerving.
-Drinkability is obviously very poor.
-This is far cry from the other Stjørdalsøl or Maltøl I’ve tried (Granas, Storli, Klostergarden).
-I had high hopes for this one, but alas, this batch is clearly infected.

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2014
0.33l bottle from #041. Looks quite nice with a medium sized dark beige top over a dark brown body. It, we’ll, smells a lot. Super peated with sailor rope, beefy fatty bacon, some roasted nuts with dark caramel glaze, something salty almost like sea water and traces of dried cocoa powder. Quite punchy and definitely powerful! It has a mild oily, almost a bit thin feeling in the mouth and it’s about average on the bubbles. I’m no huge fan of the smoked genre as I feel it gets to one dimensional, but this is quite tasty. It’s not over any tops, but still it’s really smoky! Peated leather with dried chocolate and roasted rocks. A little bit of burned bread and black sticky ink as well. I’m having a hard time putting words on all the different nuances in this beer, but there is no doubt that this is a damn tasty one. You don’t want to leave the bottle out for to long cause the aroma total file the whole room with a smoky aroma that really really sticks. Well done! 07.02.2014

tmrmwel (959) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle, #41. Pours black with a finger thick mocha head. Aroma is quite sweet with smoked malts and mellow peat, as well as whiffs of wood and liquorice. Full creamy body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with delicate burned malts, grain and chocolate, with a long dry wooden finish.

Finn (4201) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2014
Flaske 0,33l. Spennende lesing på etiketten. Gir store forventninger - som blir innfridd. Allerede ved spretting av korka slår røykaromaen mot deg. Ultramørkebrun/svart på farge. Høyt lysebrunt skum som daler sakte. Litt lacing. Herlig aroma av lær, bacon & røyk. Smaken har preg av bacon med antydning til gjær. Svakt syrlig ettersmak. Mye bunnfall.

Meilby (7610) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle 330ml @ Hostel room - Anker Hostel, Oslo
Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has notes of malt, smoke, smoked meat and hint of citrus. Taste is light to medium sweet, light bitter and light to medium sour with a smoked and sour finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft,

yngwie (13558) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. An unclear brown beer with a beige head. Smoked, meaty aroma with some caramel hints. Burnt and smoked flavor with bonfire, caramel and a chocolate and licorice hint. Quite a lot of acidity too. Not sure if I like the sourness, it sort of doesn’t match the rest of the beer. Full body and a pleasant but a bit high carbonation, dry. Lasting finish with a touch of yeast. Not sure about this one, but it would be a pretty nice one without the sourness. 140503
