HuskerTan (2041) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle. A- Anise, smoke, leather, roasty, spuce, campfire. A- Black color, dark liquid, brown head. T- Smoke, char, roasty, tobacco, anise, juniper. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- Really interesting stuff. Not sure what aquavit tastes like but its definitely in here because there are flavors I dont recognize. Almost boarderline smoked. Interesting for sure and almost overbearing. Sorta reminded me of a scotch. Great stuff just one of a kind for sure.

Pedro_Pinho (224) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2017
Black with a thin but presistent light brown head. Really nice oak aroma that blends well with the residual roasted malt. Very well balanced taste with a nice smoky finish. I can also feel the akevitt coming through. Good mouthfeel and a really nice beer overall.

fiulijn (20000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle from Den Nordiske lhandel, Copenhagen; batch 602, brewed 10.05.13, bb 16.05.16
Black color with generous browinish head. Aroma of roasted malt and campfire, burnt wood, very light sulfur (matches). The mouthfeel is quite smooth, for sure leaner than expected at this gravity; strong flavor of roasted malt that doesnt become too ashy and lets some dark chocolate show up; it has a hint of smoke, and an impression of spices (star anise), which could be the only sign of the Akevitt barrel aging; the final is a bit hot (chili pepper) and alcoholic.
A good beer, but not worth the high price tag.
