Vuoden Olut 2009 (HBF). Pyökin savussa kuivatut ohramaltaat yhdistettynä perisuomalaiseen sahdin valmistuksessa käytettyyn katajaan - makuelämys vailla vertaa! Pykmestar SavuKataja on mainio näyte suomalaisesta oluenpano-osaamisesta.

Tranquillity (1405) - Amsterdam, - JUL 27, 2012
Draught. Looks like a dark sahti. Almost no head. Aroma of fresh break, grass, liqurice. Taste extremely good, and the finish continues rather than goes into a ’finish’.

kustie (94) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Tummanvärinen olut, minimaalinen vaahto. Maussa katajaa, savuisuutta, paahteisuutta. Jälkimaussa toffeeta, makeutta.

Lambister (205) - FINLAND - MAY 13, 2014
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.

wchesser (1092) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2014
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.

Garlic_of_Doom (394) - SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle from Suregork. 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. Medium body, high carbonation, smooth to drink. Short after taste as usual with smoked beer.
Good one, nice balance between smoke and sweet malt and the alcohol is not detectable at all.

Toomio (162) - Joensuu, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Savuolueksi ok. Muistelen, että karhun savuolut oli kuitenkin enemmän minun makuun. Voi tätä silti toistekin ostaa. Jouluaaton viimeinen.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle... Dark, clear, copper pour with no head. The aroma is a marriage of smoked meat and methanol. Medium to full-bodied with a fatty mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is roasty, smoky and bittersweet. A touch medicinal. Finishes bitter with lots of minerals. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!

Andy_ (629) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Cola like reddish brown beer with blonde head leaving a ring on top of the beer and lacing on the glass. The aroma is simply smoked ham and smoke, it’s really hard to find anything else beneath it. The taste is also smoked ham and smoked malts with malty sweetness and crisp bitterness. The finish is intense but short. The alcohol doesn’t come through at all. The palate is fuller than medium. A good smoked beer but it’s a bit weird for a vegetarian with the strong ham aroma.
