3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from "urinal", CBC 2014. Delicate way to present your product! Muddy brown colour with a small, off-white head. Smoked aroma with herbal impressions, juniper berries, spices, caramel malts and earthy notes. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Finishes light smoked and sweet with spices and berries. Odd. Really odd. I liked it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014. If Ragnarök was a failed experiment with smoke this is a much more successful one. Sure it’s a really odd beer but the flavours definitely come together.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smakprov på CBC 2014. Ett verkligen udda öl med bävergäll. Doft av läder, unken timmerstuga, Lapsang souchong, blåbär och en lite udda unken besk doft/smak av galla som var lite svår. Ett riktigt skogsöl. Rolig och konstig. Mest konstig.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Urinal @ CBC’14
Aroma has smoke and licorice. Smells actuallt like burned wood in the forest at the morning. Flavour is smokey with licorice, some smoked wood and sweet malty notes. Perhaps also some ’young’ wood smoke occurs too. This is rather unusual but I seem to like it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Taster on tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration, first session. Clear amber coloured body. Naked surface. Earthy malt and sweet berries to the nose. Taste of caramel malts with notes of smoke and berries. Dry and spicy to the ending. Quite a special one, fair enough (02.05.2014).

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at CBC.
Pours oily amber.
A heavy and odd bitter brew. Acrid, leather and smoke. Difficult to rate, but I got to give it a 3 at least...
