abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2013
Shared 0,25 l bottle at Cardinal. Clear golden with a white film. Aroma of brick fireplace. Smokey, malty, chemical sweet. Medium to full body. Kjempetorsken (5) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2012 does not count
Bottle courtesy of the brewery. Light color, minimal head. Nose is SMOKEY! No other aromas! Initial taste is quite pleasant, not to smokey, but the aftertaste is Laphroig times two! Distinct smoked whisky! A lasting taste, just like the whisky. Quite sweet with a beautiful mouthfeel. The bottle says "almost undrinkable". I disagree!
There is an Norwegian equivalent called Stjørdalsøl which is also made from 100% smoked malt, but that one is not at all as smokey as this one. Comes in a 0,25 l bottle. Should be more than enough to get a taste of it.
