0,5l bottle at home. Pours clear dark reddish brown, tiny head. Aroma is combination of pleasant smoke and light juniper (first bottle I tasted had much more juniper in it) Nice aftertaste and palate. If you like smoked beers, you cannot go wrong with this!

50 cl bottle from Alko. No visible head and dark brown color. Aromas are closed and some smoky pork is dominant. Structure is lame and acids are missing. Really not what I expected and quite disappointing as in all aspects.

Dark toffee color. Nice nose of subtle rich, hard wood smoke and sweet malts. Flavors of sweet candy sugar, light smoke, with pine needles and bark, and slight heat on the finish. Really fantastic winter warmer/scotch style type ale. Better than I expected.

Murky brown with a small head, some yeast as well.
Aroma is soft and smokey, mostly meat and leather, some juniper.
Sweet and smokey taste, no bitterness at all.
