Draft. Murky golden a,ber color, massive white head. Aroma of peat! Not subtle, but not overwhelming either. Taste is vanilla, straw, and not so subtle peat.

On draft at ChurchKey DC during the Night of the Living Ales on halloween. Pours cloudy gold with a thick off white head. Smoky peat nose. Flavor dominated by peat with some tart cherry. Smoky finish.

Draft. Fruity nose. Like cherry pie. Moderately sour flavor but hints of armpits. Significant alcohol warming. Some hints of ashtray as it warms. Bluh. ---Rated via intercellular device

peat daydream - murky tangerine, wispy white head laces everywhere. Peaty leather rules the nose, light tangerine citrus. Flavor way brighter, stable and tangerine all over, bitingly bitter, the peat hiding until the drying, lightly burning finish. Thin but very fine carbonation accents sourness, peat surviving. Exceptionally executed.

12 oz on tap at Monks Cafe. Opaque orange-brown with a lasting ring and islets of creamy bubbles. Big nose of cherry vinegar and smoky earthy char. Taste the same excellent mix, with the smoke becoming less noticeable as I get further into the glass, leaving only a satifyingly sweet-sour smoke and toasted oak aftertaste. I found nary a hint of whiskey (just a nice touch of the barrel) and the abv is well-hidden as well. Medium body has medium-high but smooth carbonation and a nice sour-acidic tingle.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Draft at Monks. Cloudy orange amber pour with a lot of off-white foamy leaving runny lace. Notable peaty whiskey aroma. Tastes pretty much as billed, though with that description I was expecting something more like Haandbryggeriet. But silly me, it still tastes very Italian. Much softer edges, maybe even feels watered down a bit. Has a finky Brett strain. The whiskey adds some complexity, though it feels too far back and is more present in the finish. The peat smoke adds distinct charcoal grill notes throughout, also adds a bit of a bite. May be milder than it could be, but bolder than most Italian beers. Quite interesting.

tap offering @ ebenezer’s pub. complex brew. lot going on. taste dominated by old dirty smoked dough. mixed with an odd sweaty pear. interesting to try in small doses. weird mixture of whiskey, smoky old dough, and sweaty peary brett. reasonably well made for what it is. but an odd mixture of flavors that didn’t really do it for me.

On tap at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a cloudy orange color with a very small white head. Aroma had notes of Brett on the nose, some sour character, and a touch of light smoked grains. Flavor was some light barrel notes, peat character comes out in with rauchbier characteristics. A touch funk. Interesting.
