3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Slightly hazy deep amber color with small head. Rich tarry smoked ham aroma with hints of toffee and berries. Smoky, tarry, woody and berryish flavor. Enough bready malt backbone. The initial aroma is great, but the flavor is not as rich and there are some acidity which detracts from maltiness.

Amber color, clean; with creamy head. Strong aroma of smoked sausage, malt. Good body, good caramel flavor, with some sweetness in the front and more roasted character in the end; the smoke is quite strong, more dry (due to the darker malts) than sour. Correct bitterness. Excellent.
2010-05-16, cask at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, 8-5-7-4-15=39
Dark amber color. Aroma of smoked and almost burnt wood, a bit dusty but pleasant. Dark caramel flavor, strong bitterness, caramelized sugars, some smokey touch, not prominent. Very good beer, even if it has too much caramelized sugars and bitterness from the dark caramel.
2010-02-24, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 8-5-7-4-16=40
Dark amber color; creamy head. Very nice aroma of smoke, clean, and caramel; it’s actually possible to feel some crispy malt. It’s too much carbonated, so the body doesn’t seem to be very strong; it has a dark caramel flavor, quite dry, mostly in the end, when something similar to chocolate also appear; it has a mild smoke character, overwhelmed by the dark caramel, while some sweetness would boost it, and even ashes in the end; again, a pleasant trace of crispy malt appears. Very good.

Dark amber color; creamy head. Strong smokey aroma, smoked sausages. Good caramel flavor, enough sweetness to create a round body, with smoked malt and good bitterness level. Delicious.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 5.6%. Smoky aroma, citric smoke, not that good. Clear dark amber colour. The flavour is citric and smoky, hint of cream. The smoke is quite distinct and gets too sour for me.
