[330ml bottle, review sample]
At first I wasn’t getting much aroma wise, and only a very gentle hint of the smoke at the end of a mouthful, but as I let the beer warm up a bit, more appeared on the nose, and while still remaining refreshing, a lovely rounded peat and honey finish came out. My only gripe is that for a pale ale, I would like a little more hop character to be evident, just a little bite of bitterness before the sweet & smokey hints take over. But overall the subtleties were an asset in this beer, so if the hops stepped up just a little bit, I think it would be a beer of interesting balances.
330ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber body with a low white head that leaves lacing. Caramel and butterscotch in the aroma. Flavors of grain, hint of peat, alcohol, grass and rye bread. mzaar (3463) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2015

Aroma; dark sweet malts, raisins, apricots, grassy hops, candied liquorice, caramels.
Taste; dark sweet smoked malts, tar, prune, ashy hops, leather, liquorice, barbecue notes.
Normal on palate, average to short finish. Overall interesting, but retired? Went up in smoke?
