Once, every farm in Norway was required by law to brew its own ale. All of that ale had a natural smoky taste because the malt was kilned by fire, and most of it was spiced with juniper berries. Norwegian Wood, a recreation of that traditional style, is made by the "Hand Brewery" - four guys brewing in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale.

Reddish brown colour. Murky. Aroma is firewood and caramel. Taste is lightly smoked with some malt.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers. Wood-smoked ham and toasted chestnuts on the nose. Clean and crisp on the palate with some juniper berry notes. Smoke is not overdone and sits nicely in the background.

Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown. Poured a mostly clear red color, small tan head. Aroma was fresh forrest campfire. Not too smokey, some light fresh cut wood? Light sweet malts. Interesting.

solidfunk (9224) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2016

From bottle. Color is dark copper, with moderate foam of beige color. Aroma signaling the smoked character in an interesting non-invasive way, but also malt, in the form of caramel. Body is medium-thick. Taste consistent with aroma, again smoked and caramel, maybe licorice. Some sweetness and some bitterness, beer well balanced. Palate is nice too.

Rating #2210 - 2015.12.02 - @7Degrees Beer School. Pours a dark reddish brown color. thin head. Unreal aroma of ripened juniper berry, wood smoke, earth,chocolate, caramel. Lots of smoked malt character present, tempered with a spiciness (coriander, clove, nutmeg?). Phenomenal old world brew.

piwnepodroze (520) - POLAND - SEP 15, 2016
est to wędzone ale z dodatkiem owoców jałowca. Ponoć tradycyjnie warzone na terenie Norwegii. Piwo ma barwę mocnej herbaty i jest mętne, a na górze utworzyła się bardzo ładna czapa piany. Zapach jest raczej płaski i dominuje w nim wędzona szynka oraz wyraźny i mi nie pasujący jałowiec. W smaku jest już znacznie lepiej i ciekawiej. Piwo jest pełne i gęste. Wędzonka gra pierwsze skrzypce balansując między szynką a dymem ogniska. Żaden jałowiec jałowo nie zakłóca mi odbioru. Jest tak smaczne i pijalne, jak tylko może być.
