omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2011
Draught at Ølfestival København 2011. Hazy nut brown, small head. Smoky fruity nose. Sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. The hard barren malt prevents further exploration of the flavours. Some caramel, lot of smoke, mildly peppery alcohol burn in the finish. Rather messy.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - MAY 29, 2011
Sampled at Copenhagen beer festival 2011. Clear brown, small baige head. Smokey tar aroma with loads of toffee, buttery bisquit and fruity plum. Very ashy dry smoke flavor mixed with caramel and toffee sweetness. Peated smoke finish with an alchohol bitterness. Sounds like its very peated, but it really isnt. Its more like that, sniffing an empty whisky bottle kinda peat.

madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2011
Draught. Amber coloured. Unclear. Dense brown head. Rubber, fruits, tar and some fruits in the aroma. Flavour is very rough. Loads of smoke and fruits. Medium bodied. Ends on a rubbery and smoked note. Quite unrefined imo.

Kronebryg (1037) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2011
light head, Brown Ale Brown Smoke, peat, light caramel sweetnes, sweat!?! some body and some length. ’Taste is peat, butterscotch and caramel. Fine beer where the smoke is "kept" very well?

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 Draught at the Danish Beerfestival 2011. Shady copper. Smokey aroma with some fudge and gunpowder. Surprisingly thin. Dry and bitter. Is everything really OK here?

This is a really dificult rate for me as I just can’t make up my mind on the beer, the issue is the amount of Islay character on display here. Pours a very deep red/mahogany and is surprisingly crystal clear when held up to the light. It certainly looks the business in the glass, nice amount of head for the abv. a half inch or so of tan coloured reaonably thick foam. Aroma is cheesy, reminiscent of blue cheese, a touch of varnish, then iodine, tar, coal smoke, peat and bacon fat. Everything I’d expect from a Southern Isla Whisky. Flavour enters with massive peat, more blue cheese, mineral/earth, more iodine, some kind of fruit? maybe raspberries? spiciness, I want to say toffee but hope this is not due to the suggestion of it as an ingrediant, there’s definitely a treacle/liquorice charcter in here. Then I just get saturated with smoke and just can’t be botherd to fight through it to seek out a beer underneath. Finish? Have a guess: More smoke and peat. And here in lies the problem, there is almost definitely something very interesting going on underneath the bonfire embers but whatever it is it’s totally eclipsed by the savage Islay character. Brewdog have often used the saying"beer for the dedicated" which I dig, but you have to provide something to dedicate yourself to, this is not it. Using Laphraoig malt the 8 months in Jura casks says to me a peat smoke saturated beer. Fine if it’s a robust Impy or Porter, but here you have a barley wine that’s smothered.

Leighton (9848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours a completely foggy, brownish hue with a moderate, off-white head. Lots of sugary malts, candy and fruits in the aroma. Flavor gives ’sweet’ new meaning, smacking mostly of the fruit variety, but also some cake-like bread, ripe old fruits, some mild booze, brown sugar, bit of leafy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Finish has a bit of heat, faint hops, plenty more sugary malts and some toast. Pretty drinkable for a 12% beer. Good stuff.
