Tap @ Borefts 2017. Golden color. Hints of smoke and bergamot in the aroma. Malty yet dry flavor with bergamot. Not bad at all.
0.33 l bottle from 'Rudat', bottled in September 2017. Clear, very dark reddish amber with a massive, frothy, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, malty, fairly smoky, gently fruity, slightly resiny and a bit herbal aroma of smoked ham, ice tea, peach, mango and some salt. Moderately sweet, quite smoky, rather fruity, gently resiny and just a little herbal taste of mango, peach, ice tea, smoked ham and a touch of pine, followed by a medium long, quite bitter, fairly smoky and a little herbal finish. Medium body, gently effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very nice smoked IPA, especially with the age of a whole year, don't get much of the Earl Grey though.

Should be categorised as a Smoked Beer. Clear red brown colour with lasting head. Aroma has some citrusy orange and just a hint of smoke. Flavour is very fruity and citrusy and reasonably sweet. There's a slightly savoury background smokiness throughout.
