3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Couldn’t get to Gotland, so I made some myself, based on Charlie Papazian’s recipe. I used cherrywood smoked malt because apparently birchwood smoked isn’t readily commercially available. Next time I’ll smoke my own malt over birch. I got more bitterness from the juniper than actual flavor, and the smoke notes were mellower than I had hoped for. Was drinking too much on brew day and forgot to take a gravity reading, so I have no idea what the ABV is. I suspect it’s lower than I was shooting for, as this was my first all grain brew. Overall, I enjoyed this beer, but I imagine it can be done far better, and, since I have a whole pound of bread yeast in the freezer and a juniper plant in the front yard, I plan to do it a few more times until I get it right.

As rlgk Said; didn’t know this was an separate entry. Had this a few times and didn’t like it much.
Murky, stale and smoked with, sometimes, apparent juniper-berries and sometimes just cloying.

Bottle. Did not know this was an entry on ratebeer. Had it at least twice, one with omhper snd once with larsniclas. I remember it as very murky, sour and smoked, fruity and with dough. More Interesting than tasty, but not totally bad.

April 25, 2015. Plastic jerry can, shared by omhper, thanks!
Very cloudy yellow/grey. Aroma is smoked meat, peaty wood, juniper, slight phenolic plastic notes. Taste is somewhat sweet, slight sour with peat and some plastic notes. Medium bodied, flat. Taste much better than it looks...

[4/25/15] Jerrycan sample at a tasting at omhper’s place in Tyresö. Thanks omhper, AndySnow and hackobock for sharing great beers! Muddy brownish gray. Nice smoky aroma with a sourish fruit note. Sourish flavor, fruity, smoky, with a bit of spiciness, and wood. Medium-bodied. Not at its prime, as its not supposed to be sour, but still not bad and interesting. And I love the big plastic jerrycan it came out of!

Bottle (Thanks Omhper) - Cloudy and murky amber. Beech, tar, ash and some fruity notes in the aroma. Tangy, smoky and rather harsh taste with beech, tar and some biscuity notes.

Bottled by omhper from farm st. Bol. Cloudy yellow body with no foam. Aroma has light roasty, almost bacon like profile, little bit yeasty, otherwise pretty clean. Taste has an overall roasty bacony character, with malty sweetness upfront, light acidic after taste, quite refreshing. Low to none bitterness. Little bit yeasty. I thought there will be more juniper. Body is medium, flat carbonation. Would go wonderful with Slovak’s halušky :)

Flaska av en kompis, tack Mr_Hult! Lätt grumlad kopparbrun/röd vätska. Fruktig i doften. Stor inledande sötma som sedan ersätts av en syrlig och lätt beska. Pärlande vätska med medelfyllig munkänsla.
