Much lighter than I expected an amber body below a healthy foamy white head
big bbq smoke nose slightly greasy
full on full strength marlboro taste
good MF and perfect carbonation
don't know why this isn't listed as a rauchbier as it is full on smoky
good, great even but really smoky

Deep golden orange in the glass. A little cloudy. Medium/small head. Predominant smell is smoke. Bottle says: Oak, Smoke, Rye & Juniper. Oak and smoke appear first on the palate. Spicy late finish might be the juniper they're talking about. Subsequent sips reveal sweet carmel malt in the middle, making it more approachable and drinkable than the first taste might suggest -- gives the beer a rounder mouthfeel for a medium-alcohol beer like this. The "juniper" spice becomes more prevalent in subsequent sips. Very interesting and complex. Well made and worth buying more.

Guy at the bar said this is actually a Sahti. Looked it up, and so it seems.
Had on tap, quick notes:
Dark amber, low head.
Big roast in the smell and smoke, nothing much.
Big roasted malts, very dark chocolate. Oak, burnt wood, charcoal, hay. Very faint caramel. Low dark fruit, with a certain mustiness, that might be produced by the juniper (there's a gin-like feel to it, actually). Smoke gets even stronger towards the finish, which is rough and bitter. Grassy notes here too.
Dry and rugged, medium body, wouldn't drink more than one at once.
First time trying out a Sahti, expected a rauch, but wasn't disappointed.
