Bottle thanks to darkguardian. Clear amber pour with a foamy white head. Damp moss and bactine nose. Wow, the scotch is over powering with all kinds of pete and smoke flavors. Bitch please, I say no thank you.

Bottle@Bishops Arms, Lund Copper-red color with small-medium offwhite head. Medium lacing. Aroma of smoke, tar and some caramel. Creamy mouthfeel and full body. Heasy taste of smoke, a bit too heavy. There is also tar and some licorice. Interesting but I think the smoke is overpowering.

Reddish brown colour, thin creamy head. Strong whisky nose, almost peppery. Loads of exotic hops. Increasing fruitiness, strawberry jam. Medium maltiness, sweet caramel, some toffy, nice smoky kick from peated malts. Smoky and bitter finish, gentle wood character. Slightly alcoholic. Almost full bodied, could be richer and more complex. Still a nice brew.

This is a little bit of a bruiser. Pours a dark gold color with a off white head. The nose reveals peated malts but not extremely overpowering. I suppose some could be put off by the peat but its not a high ppm level at all. The peat contains the sweetness but lets it loose as time pass. Its not a usual american barley wine sweetness, but more like an imperial scotch ale I think. Aftertaste, like the nose, is a little rough and alcohol shows just a tad too much for my taste. Hats off for controling the peat even though its from Laphroaig - a distillery on the south coast of Islay - hated by many, loved by peat-o-philes across the globe. Myself included

Chestnut colour with a small off-white head. Medicinal aroma of peat smoke with a bit of bready malt. Sweet and malty flavour with peat smoke in cloying measures.

Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Festival 2011. Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel, peat, earth and smoke. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is smoke. Overall an average beer.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Nose is great. Sweet malt, lots of dark fruit, yet some nice meaty smokiness. Very scotchlike. Flavor is similarly scotchlike. A really nice dark fruit, scotch ale like malt backbone upfront but the super smokiness of the Jura barrel just dominates the back half. A little to much peat. Don’t get me wrong, I love it but most people won’t. Finishes with some nice fruit notes and malty/bread notes typical of a scotch ale. I think if the smoke were a tad less aggressive and the beer was a tad sweeter (its quite a dry beer, suprisingly) then it would work more. Body is good with a nice ful;l mouthfeel. Color and head retention are also good.

Bottle from Redmonds, Dublin. Slightly murky reddish brown pour with a small tan head. Dark fruit, sweet malts, booze and peaty, smoky notes aplenty in the nose. Similar traits evident in the flavour and the peatiness was just a little too overpowering. Er, great name, but somehow unbalanced and wasn’t totally feeling this one.

Bottle; Pour is slightly murky, golden amber in this glass; average beige head is present, along with very light, spotty lacing. The interesting thing, to me, is that I find the nose of this brew to be quite spectacular ; All of the sweeter elements come through here; short breads, whisky, chocolate - the initial taste was a blast of ash, honestly. I thought it was infected. No, not infected. Smoky peat comes through pretty heavily though, once the palate adjusts to the ashy notes. The sweetness of the malt profiles follows you until the end, when you’re left with a bit of bitter ash on the tongue. This brew feels messy, honestly, but a unique experience, for sure.
