Lambister (208) - 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 (1166) - 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 (448) - 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.
