alobar (2715) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with no head. Undercarbonated. Strong whiskey aroma with pine and hops. Somewhat flat flavor with whiskey, caramel, grapefruit, and pine. Very unusual, but drinkable.

humanisfood (1) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2011 does not count
Poured light in color. NO head on an aggressive pour. Very little carbonation. Was very pleasant on the nose... but nearly undrinkable. Bitter, metallic, artificial fruit. I poured the last 20% down the sink. I was hoping it would tasted better when it warmed. It did slightly but still very UNpleasant.

superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2011
11.2 ounce bottle into snifter, batch 150, best by 12/12/09. Here we go, I have been afraid of trying this because of the reviews. Pours hazy orange amber color with a small forced white head with ok retention that reduces to a paper thin cap. A bit of lacing clinging to the glass as well. Aromas of strong whiskey, caramel, wood, cardboard, and a bit of smoke. Interesting and decent aromas here with good strength. Taste of tons of woodiness, cardboard, smoke, caramel, and a bit of spices and whiskey. Almost no taste in the front of the tongue, which was odd. Lingering notes of smoke, wood, cardboard, whiskey, and a bit of spicy bitterness on the finish. Pretty much no carbonation with a medium-full body. Very slick and odd mouthfeel thanks to the lack of carbonation. It drinks fairly easily however. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming on the finish noticed. Overall certainly an interesting tasting beer, but this was a tad difficult to finish.

kermis (4741) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle shared thanks to Deanso. Pours hazy amber with little tan head. Aroma is insane peat. Flavour is basically bad watered down whiskey with a sweet finish. Very strange.

ejay (67) - SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2011
Bottle from BQ, Milano Aroma of smoke, tar and caramel. Clear red-brown w small white head. Flavor is smokey w lots of tar, some hops and caramel. Medium body and carbonation. Too heavy on the whiskey side for my taste - doesnít quite taste like a beer. Still quite good though.

deanso (5018) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2011
33cl bottle from Roysbeers, Milan. Worth a try but the smokey/peaty flavour of the barrel completely overpowers the IPA. Nice try.

crackedmachine (469) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Pours a cloudy copper with minimal head. Aroma is pretty much just scotch. Smoky, peaty. The slight hop citrus presence is barely perceptible under the Islay blanket. Flavor is initially dominated by scotch, but a little glimmer of bright hop shines through, only to be again overwhelmed by a finish of peat and ash. Quite flat on the palate. This is a pretty fucked-up beer. I am a big fan of boilermakers and Lagavulin, though usually not in the same glass. Overall, I appreciate the all-out whisky assault here.

TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle @ home. Cloudy yellow-orange appearance with a nearly absent, white head. Mostly peat whiskey but some sweet hoppiness in the nose. Roasty, peat smoky, boggy, dull hoppy, light citrusy flavor. Honestly, Iím not a huge Islay whiskey fan, so Iím not sure why I picked this one up but I did enjoy the Islay flavor more than usual. Kind of a weird combination of Islay whiskey and an IPA. The whiskey flavor drowns the IPA characteristics in my mind. Yuck.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Cloudy dark gold color color with no head. Light peaty aroma. The taste is a trainwreck. The peatiness "blends" with a strongly vegetal hop character, turning strongly metallic. Pretty gnarly, and not in a good way.

northropfrye (2079) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
Bottle. This is a beer that has to be tried. Incredibly ambitious. Smokey, meaty, hoppy. Overpowering. Itís just too much, but its a nice try.
