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 (1882) - Toronto, Ontario, - 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’.

JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
Medium to good if not very dense, darker cream-coloured head over nearly black beer with a ruby sheen. Rich smoked ham nose, bit of watercolour/gouache, smoked beechwood, beechbark, parsley. Sweet-smoked, with touches of maple syrup, ketjap manis, orangepeel, preserved orange, sweet BBQ sauce, and of course, smoke/phenols. Feels better carbonated than it looks, very oily-oozy, well-bodied. Sweeter than most smoked, but original and rewarding indeed. Kiitos, Teemu!

jercraigs (9877) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
2016-09-10. Very dark body, modest head. Aroma is quite smokey in a way that reminds me of a sushi restaurant for some reason. Is umami aroma a thing? Flavour is less prominently smokey but still plays a big role. Interesting fruit touches, something beneath that I can’t put a name too. Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. Not necessarily to my tastes but exceptionally interesting. 7-8/3/7/3/14-15 Bottle shared by Timo from Finland.

Linkiewitz (100) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Aromat: Przyjemnie wędzone, wraz z aromatami szynki i ogniska, które wprost buchają z butelki. Wygląd: Ciemny brąz, z szybko opadajacą pianą. Smak: Niespodziewana (hehe) analogia do aromatu - znów mamy do czynienia z wędząką spod znaku szynki i ogniska, lecz tym razem idzie ona w akompaniamencie suszonych owoców i karmelu. Co ciekawe, piwo pomimo swojego woltażu i ciała jest bardzo subtelne w odbiorze, zaś alkohol nie jest wyczuwalny w żaden nagatywny sposób, Najbardziej interesujacym punktem jest posmak, gdzie na prowadzenie wychodzą owoce, z bananem i jałowcem na czele co pokazuje druga, prawdziwie fińską stronę tego piwa - sahti.

rostetti (209) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Bottle from Alko. Pours dark with small head. Aroma is woody, smoked, smoked meat and sausage. Taste is smoked meat and sausage, some juniper wood and sweet too. Not a beer for me unfortunately, but it is not a bad beer at all.

MartR (308) - Aespa, ESTONIA - APR 24, 2016
Looks dark amber with a thick creamy head. Nice intense smoked malts on the nose. Tasting adds sweet malts and caramel to the overall smokiness. What a nice balance between the caramel sweetness and smoky goodness. Strong beer, though 9% barely detectable. I’m guessing the spiciness comes from the juniper because I can’t really get the taste. Overall very versatile and flavorful. Great taste experience.

larsga (7316) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 16, 2016
Medium beige head. Hazy deep dark red body. Smoky earthy aroma with rye crisp bread notes. Sweetish smoky earthy juniper taste with mealy toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly flat, soft mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy smoky lingonberry aftertaste with mealy juniper notes. Vaguely reminiscent of stjørdalsøl, but lacks the immense depth of the home-made malts. (0.5l bottle, from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki.)

Henkk4 (28) - FINLAND - FEB 22, 2016
Hazy dark brown with beige head. Aroma is strong smoke, licorice, and woody. Medium to full body with light sweetness, oily texture and soft carbonation. Finishes somewhat bitter. This was my first of this style and it’s actually surprisingly good.

ramboraffe (1863) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2015
500 ml bottle from Alko. Hazy brown with tanned head. Smoked bacon, bbq, smoked sausage and meat. A lot like smoked fish traditionally smoked with juniper wood. Semi sweet with medium bitterness and medium carbonation. Nice!

agent_persik (676) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2015
Dark brown reddish colour, medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, spice, bacon, smoke. Sweet taste with lightly bitter finish and bitter-sweet aftertaste. Medium body and average carbocation. Nice beer, very enjoyable.
