Linnet (1807) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2010
Appearance: cloudy ruby/copper body, no head. Aroma: Smoked meat, burnt wood, malts, alcohol, hops and yeast. Flavour: Smoked meat! sticky malts, alcohol, big bite, acidity. Mouthfeel: rich, thick and sugary. Total: This is very exciting and interesting, but I wonder if it would have been better without the smoke.

(bottle). Pours dark brown with off white-head. Hazy with lots of sediment. Aroma is smoky like beef jerky Taste is sweet and smoky. Medium bodied with thin/creamy texture. Excellent beer. If a smoked beer could be subtle, then this is it. Would definitely get again.

drjay44 (3652) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2010
500 ml. bottle. Pours a thin short lived head, over a clear, dark brown (SRM 38) body....nose is molasses, soy, Boveril, beef, light smoke...taste is sweet to start, then dried fruits including cherry, raisin, finishing yeasty, beefy, and slightly bitter....mouth feel is thick and chewy, alcohol remarkably well hidden, carbonation makes a creamy sensation. This is very thick, very heavy, very complex, lightly smoked, and in spite of the initial sweetness, remarkably well balanced. Smoked Barley Wines are not yet a category. BJCP 7/3/15/5/7

shigaleale (20) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 17, 2010
Redish brown under the light. Smoky hop with fruity aroma. The smoked flavour reminds me bonito flakes. Quite syruppy, mellow on the toungue. maple syrup & low key bitter finish leaving slight spiciness on the toungue.

Pours deep brown, thin tan head. Low carbonation, so only a little head.
The aroma shows off a lot of rich malts, but the smoked malt cuts through adding a layer of marmitey complexity.
The smoked flavour comes through much more in the flavour, playing off the rich malt body with twang of orangey hop.
I didn’t know what I was getting into when I cracked this - the label doesn’t reveal much about the style, but that made the experience all the more invigorating.

Dfonorow (2216) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2010
On tap at Rattle N Hum. Pours dark brown with a slight red and orange tint. Very nice light brown colored head. The aroma is not like other smoked beers that I’ve had, a little heavy on the alcohol flavor with notes of roasted malts, bourbon, and sweet liquorish. Taste has no barbecue flavor (like other smoked) at all and is more like a sweet bourbon stout with slight floral and fruitiness throughout. Pretty good.

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2010
(500 ml bottle, batch #400 & brygget 211208 @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. Rated @ 5.12.2009.)
Deep red colour and a small white head. Fruity and sweet aroma with spices in addition to roasted malts and chocolate. Very strong flavour with notes of smoke and caramel. Intense. Alcohol comes through in the end. Highly complex smoked beer, but it’s what you’d expect from Nøgne Ø.
