A bizarre concept for a beer. I was skeptical... it could have easily been a trainwreck, but it was actually great. There is a fairly subtle smoke flavor and aroma from the peated malt and the scotch barrels. In the forefront is there is mainly sour and funk flavors. All 3 beers have strong flavors, and they combine very well without drowning each other out. Hard to believe this isn’t Belgian. A very impressive and innovative beer.

Un amalgame vraiment intéressant de boucane intense et d’acide lactique. Les brett se manifestent aussi, survoltant.

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. It’s a bit of a laugher, but I could finish a glass of that.

Draft. Cloudy copper with almost no head. Aroma is completely dominated by smoky peat. Taste adds some char, slight booze sting and tart fruitiness. Medium smooth mouthfeel. Complex but not super drinkable.

swoopjones (5900) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2014
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

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Draft at Blue monk. Hazy dark orange pour with a white thin head. Nose is tart and peaty. Taste is a tart fruit skin front into a smokey peat finish. Great balance and not overwhelming.

nimbleprop (4881) - 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.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 9, 2014
09/01/2014 Ma che siewte venuti a fà (tap). Arancia, torbida, schiuma leggera e poco persistente. Naso prepotente, violento, bretta, note torbate, acido deciso, leggero acetico, alcol, complessa e di non facile lettura. In bocca è molto acida, decisa, con una nota torbata evidente. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Complessa, impegnativa, grezza, un po’ confusionaria. Interessante, ma non è il genere di birra che berrei ogni giorno.

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

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small white head. Nice aroma of brett, peat and light fruit. Flavor begins with nice clean brett sourness and finishes with a great peat smokiness. Smooth, tart finish. Delicious beer.
