500ml bottle shared by Doug, thanks man douglas88 (9569) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Appearance: Dark mahogany with a nice beige head and some light lacing
Aroma: Light smokiness, dark fruits and sweet malts
Taste: Roasted malts, rye, chocolate and some bourbon
Very nice. Not much smokiness, more of a barley wine than smoked beer.
500 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium beige head. A sweet fruity barley wine nose, some hops and herbal notes. The flavor is very nice; rich strong fruitiness, caramel, dust, light smoke. This is a barley wine or a traditional ale not a smoked. Very smooth, slightly hot.

A thick, rich, warming barley wine with great smokiness and roasted grains characteristics in the nose. Chocolate, modest sweetness, very delicate smoke flavors. Moderate finishing bitterness. A very awesome beer. gyllenbock (9646) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2010
Dark brown with a small, creamy head. Sweet aroma and taste of smoke, licorice, malt, dark bread, nuts and caramel. A different beer, difficult to define. Thick mouth feel and not that much carbonation. Interesting, would like to try this again. ekstedt (6944) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2010

Apperance: Ruby red with a wee, beige, head.
Aroma: Caramel, Smoke, Berries, Brown sugar.
Taste: Smoked meat, Dark Caramel, Rye bread, Hint of berries and leather.
Palate: Smoke is present but dominating this brew that has a solid malt backbone. Feels balanced. Low carbonation.
This went down really easily with some smooked cheese. A really pleasant smoked barleywine where the smoke doesn’t take up to much space.
Brown color with a beige head. An aroma of smoke, sweets, weak spice, rubber and tar. A flavor of smoke, sweets, alcohol, prunes, syrup, liqurica and bitter notes. rosenbergh (11753) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2010

16.9 oz bottle. Dark brown with edgy bubbles. Nose is caramel and boozy raisin; digging deeper light smoke. Medium body with soft flabby carb. Taste is stale caramel, grass, plum brandy and apple wood smoke. Not so smoky finishing bitter and a touch ashy.
