3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Pours light copper, with cream head. Faint aroma - creamy and suggestive of flavors to come. Taste and palate are the things. The peated malt is nicely done - others I’ve had are over top - this one is clearly present but not overwhelming, nicely integrated. Toasty, creamy, chewy, nice mouth feel, but not heavy. Overall, solid, drinkable, a sipping ale, after dinner in front of the fire beer. Whisky drinkers will enjoy this one

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Aroma has notes of smoke, peat, caramel malts. Dark amber hue with an average off-white head that mostly diminished and left some lace. Flavor is very sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium/heavy body and oily soft. Overall the peat malts are just not very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, this beer had a dark red pour with faint brown at the sides, and it made a one finger off-white / light tan head that receded to a thin cover and ring, the glass had a center stream that was moving along slow with a few single bubbles elsewhere making their way upward, it left some spots and fingers of lacing on the glass, the bottom of the bottle did not have a layer of sediment but there was a film.
This ale had nice aromas of toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, candy sweetness, and some firewood smoke, it had flavors of toasted malt, caramel, a smoke addition and faint fruit, the mouth feel was about medium with average carbonation and it felt a little creamy on the tongue.
A nice toasted malt beer with a smoke addition that did not resemble a scotch ale but a smoked beer, it wasn’t bad but it was not what I was expecting, if I was rating this beer as a scotch, the rating would have been lower.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Mostly clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is roasted malt with peat and oak. Some sweetness peeks through the aroma. Taste starts with a caramel malt sweetness, rich roasted malt, and a peat malt kicks through to leave a smoky leathery finish. Body is a little thin, and light on the carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of hasselHOFF. Thanks Kyle! Pours a hazy, dark reddish brown appearance with a thin, light brown head. Rich toffee, caramel malty, somewhat smoky, herbal aroma. Carbonation is low. Quite a bit of peat in the flavor with some caramel, grass, and some herbal elements. Not sure why the carbonation was so low in this one and the other Brau Brother I had tonight, but it really took away from the experience for me.

Over carbonated good looking tangy ale. Tastes of fruit and pine nuts and has a peat smell and aftertaste. Interesting and crisp.

This was a tough one to rate for me. A lot is given in my book for uniqueness and this one has it. I don’t think I’d ever want more than one of these in a sitting though. Peat peat peat!
