Truly a ground breaking beer, this Barrel aged Rauchbier was an attempt to replicate the flavors present in Islay Scotch Whiskey. We used Munich malt as a base and added copious amounts of Beechwood and Peat smoked malt, which provides the intense smoky and earthy peat flavors found in Scotch. Then the addition of Alderwood smoked salt lends a crisp brininess that is reminiscent of the sea air in the Islay region of Scotland. Aged in used Angel’s Envy Bourbon Barrels to give an intense caramel, vanilla and whiskey flavor.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 On tap in a smaller glass. Pours amber with a small head. Aroma of pale malts, smokiness and barbecue, oak, and some floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. An OK beer. Edit: liked it more the second time. Caramel malts and more bourbon ans the smokiness blend well. A pretty good beer. 3.2 to a 3.7

Bottle from kihsokh. Major gusher warning, this one gushed up about 20cl when opened, and it was not slowly. Be warned. Cloudy yellow, offwhite head. smoked, malty and fruity aroma, also notes of wood. aroma leads to scotch whiskey. Flavor is smoked, malts, wood bitterness, faint fruits. very complex, and almost tastes more like whiskey than like beer. I think it is the kind of beer that you get to like more and more as you drink more of it.
