Høst Øl - HammerHeart Brewing Company. Poured from a 750 ml growler into a snifter, this brew's head is one finger thick and off-white, with lateral lacing, and a very dark brown/reddish body.

I smell a near-whiskey sweetness, along with tangier malts and grains. These will probably will be balanced by floral, delicate hops.

Tastes like a nice blend of "harvest"/saison-esuqe grains, along with an enjoyably noticeable smoked flavor that this brew is billed for. Quite the pleasing twist on this oft-copped style as of recent here in the States.

The mouthfeel I'm picking up over here is medium-light, with not a whole lot of carbonation.

I'll choose to award Høst Øl - HammerHeart Brewing Company with an overall 4.75. Yet another solid trade from my friend @jrsaffert. Thank you again, my brother in steel \m/

This winter warmer from Hammeheart was aged in Bernheim whiskey barrels. Smoke flavor is balanced by sweel. Very pleasant and enjoyable to drink on a winters day.

Amber with a little carbonation floating up in the beer, but no head.

Nose is smoke and oak, or no shit Sherlock.

Tastes smoky with a definite oak aftertaste. Again, nothing subtle here.

It delivers 100%.

Appearance: Dark amber, good head.

Smell: Wood smoke, smoked meat, faint breadiness.

Taste: Mild citrus, then a nice breadiness, then finishes with a moderate woody smokiness.

Overall: Brought home from a 750mL mini-growler. This is one of my favorites at Hammerheart, a smoked wheat harvest ale. It has a nice smokiness while maintaining a good malt and citrus hop balance.
