On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a deep purple with minimal head. Nasty aroma that reeks of formaldehyde. I feel like I’m back in 11th grade and about to dissect a cat. The flavor is even worse: prominent formaldehyde with a touch of cough syrup and smoked wood. Slightly creamy body, but the formaldehyde is nauseating. By the third sip, I was dreading each swallow. This was fucking gross. I will definitely try this again because perhaps there was something wrong with the line or keg I had here; surely it can’t be this bad? I will promptly re-rate should I try this again, but I quiver at the thought.

30-JUN-2011, bottle @Skagen Strand, from Salling Aarhus. Hazy brown with light brown head. Wonderfull barley wine nose with an added smokey note. Taste is charamel, chocolate, and smoke. Hops are there but subdued by now. It is a 2009 brew after all. Sirupy body, sticky sweet, and a tad alcoholic. Wonderfull brew.

Bouteille 500ml, courtoisie de SlovakSniper. De couleur brune foncée et semi-voilée. Nez de malt fumé (jambon à l’érable et bacon fumé) et moyennement rôti, moyen de caramel sucré, léger de chocolat noir avec des notes de pain grillé, de mélasse sucrée et de fruits (prunes rouges). Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture riche, sirupeuse et aux petites notes crémeuses. Moyen-goût fruité (prunes, traces de cerises noires, traces de dates) accompagné d’un léger goût de malt fumé (jambon fumé à l’érable) et de traces de réglisse noire lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel toffee léger-moyen rôti, un léger goût de mélasse sucrée ainsi que des notes de pain grillé et de sucre brûlé. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un moyen goût d’alcool réchauffant et aux notes brûlantes ainsi qu’un léger goût de sirop contre la toux aux cerises et une moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût long-moyen et aux notes sèches, moyennement amer d’alcool réchauffant, de rôti (notes brûlées), moyen de houblon herbeux, légèrement fumé et avec des notes fruitées (noyau de prunes).

Bottle poured into my Founders snifter glass. Brown color with no head, muddy and murky. Aroma is a tad sweet, hints of brown sugar, maple, molasses, smoked bacon and ham. Flavor is a little boozy and smokey with a sweet malt backing.

Dark amber, lots of yeast in suspension, tiny head. Not much sign of carbonation. Nice aromas, light smoke, candy, caramel, bacon & eggs with maple syrup on top! Full body, malty with hints of molasses candy and light smokiness that revels in the finale. Exceptionnal balance, the light carbonation ios finally suitable here. Highly drinkable smoke beer

nose at first is quite hoppy, fresh with an alcohol note and then after a couple whiffs it’s earth, heavy sweet malt, bitter chocolate, feel is very oily and quite broad, carb is low, taste is heavy spice and herbs, cooked vegetables, cane sugar, weak cough syrup, rotten leaves galore, finish is sweet malt and liquorice.

unfortunately my experience with this brew, obviously infected, was frustration. Remaniscent of a trip to the hospital with antisceptic smells and tastes of mecurachrome and discinfectant. If one were to be at the Ratlle & HuM NYC AVOID THIS BREW AT this time!

Bomber, light caramel malt flavor, rich prune and heavy jerky and smoky leather, very full, rich and flavorful, unique and tasty

JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2011
Bottled at Pikkulintu "last bottle". Soft malty sweet nose. Pale beige head. Dark reddish black colour. Sweet fullfilled tatse. Warming alcohol. Syropey taste and average hoppiness. Fullfilled and fruity maltiness.
