Bottle from Slowbeer. Cloudy amber/brown, small off-white head, smoky/peaty, some solid malt sweetness hiding under the peat, fruity hops too. Not really my thing.

Una bella fusione di tecniche brassicole italo scozzesi! Provata una sola volta mi ha lasciato soddisfattissimo. Luppolata e ben bilanciata, un perfetto mix fra la Punk e la Reale Extra a mio parere...

Vinx (81) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2013
Poca schiuma, color miele torbido con residui solidi in sospensione. Morbida al palato, il che la rende particolarmente beverina. La nota principale è decisamente quella di fumo, seguono miele, frutta matura, spezie, in particolare il coriandolo. Il retrogusto è gradevolmente amaro e persistente di fumo. Probabilmente la birra più particolare che abbia mai assaggiato.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Appearance: Red/copper colour, clear. Ivory head about a finger wide. Aroma: Peaty, woody, coriander note, marzipan, smoky, leather, earthy, and hint of whisky. Taste: Medium bitter, low sweetness, slightly malty and a hint of grapefruit (strangely). Palate: quick, thin and refreshing, with a slight carbonation. But at the end is a tingling bitterness and astringency. Comments: It was quite tasty and I would probably have this one again because it was different from what I normally drink. Served in snifter and left glass lace.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy golden orange with a bit of muddiness at the bottom. Smells like pine and resiny hops, light touch of caramel and a light sweet peat. Taste is smooth, like a nice pale ale, medium bitterness with a slight sweet peatiness and upfront hop profile. Few floaties at the bottom of my glass. Inconspicuous alcohol content. Decent beer, thought it would rate higher.

allanbowers (93) - melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2013
Quite a light beer for 8.4%. Pours a cloudy caramel colour. Not particularly hoppy. Quite an easy beer to drink. Not the greatest of the Brewdog collaborations.

Leighton (13520) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle at the Chriso Snow Tasting, London - many thanks to Fergus for this beer! Pours cloudy auburn with a light, frothy off-white head. Tangy pale malts in the nose, light smoke. Light to medium sweet flavor with some Band-Aid character, faint caramel, mellow bread. Medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Fairly sweet to finish with dry caramel, restrained smokiness, light tangy berries. OK, but a bit disjointed.

maneliquor (3406) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. A solid scotch ale without being amazing. The peated notes throughout are quite balanced though which is refreshing. Fairly easy drinking for an 8% brew. Good stuff
