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.

Hazy light tan. Weird aroma w lots of peat and lots of brett, and some like, slightly biscuity malts as well. Tart, lots of peat...finishes like mixing Ardbeg and Cuvee Rene Gueuze. Ok this makes no sense, yet it is strangely compelling. Itís a bit of a laugher, but I could finish a glass of that.

A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, strange yet nice mix of peated malt with grassy Brett and lactic notes, faint rubber, interesting. In mouth, a nice sour ale with good peatyness, lactic acid, fruity esters, surprisingly good. On tap at TÝrst.

Penominal phrnominal beer. Barnyard funk meets scotch. Huge complexity, easy going.

draft at Blue monk, a very strange beer but i liked it quite a bit. medium bodied leather colored pour. peat, scotch, wood/oak bretty funk in both aroma & flavor. Very strange combo but very enticing. well worth seeking out

Ernest (6485) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Draft at Sergioís, Louisville KY. Head is initially huge, creamy/rocky, off-white, fully lasting. Body is hazy medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately yeasty (horseblanket, barnyard), with notes of Islay malt whisky (iodine, peat, etc.), manure, apple skin, band-aid, peach. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. One of the most fucked up beers Iíve ever had, but somehow it works. Equal parts Islay whiskey and lambic, with a healthy dose of WTF??? And yet itís not the train wreck I expected (I got a small taste and then ordered an entire glass, and would gladly drink another). Really well balanced and aromatically bizarre.

TheBeerGod (5407) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Muddy amber with a short white head. Strong iodine/peat in the nose with a random funkiness poking its head out every now and then. Also hints of tart fruit and toasted grains as well. Rather odd. Taste is also odd - large iodine/peat notes, funky yeast, earthy notes, tart fruit and soft malt. Body is light-medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation and lingering peat notes throughout. Finishes with iodine, earthy notes, funky yeast tart fruit and soft grains. At times there is an odd lingering aftertaste like sucking on a coin. Not sure why I keep buying these goofy Italian beers. They are almost never worth it. Decent beer, but for $23 I was expecting a whole lot more.

nimbleprop (5329) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2014
10oz pour at Of Love and Regret. Pours a hazy orange with some very active, frothy white head. Nose is huge, its a wild blend of rubbery peat smoke, bright pithy grapefruit, some past due yogurt, straw. Flavors follow suit, cold smoked whitefish, industrial rubber, very tart grapefruit, a little sweat sock, wheat chaff, some bread crust. Tart, industrial finish. A really wild mix of flavors.

radagast83 (5273) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2013
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.
