DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle, given to me by Robbie, shared with Grippitis. Medium brown, golden highlights. Lots of peaty smoke in the aroma, sweet bready and brown sugar undertones. The palate features moderately heavy peaty smoke, but the caramel malts are quite thin. Not bad, but lacking malt structure.

zimbo (560) - SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Promising start. Big billowing easy head. Dark brown to black colour. Initial softness on the palate turns out to be fairly hollow with little development or definition apart from some fuzzy furriness. The peat and smoke traces are very slight and very much in the background. Needs much more individuality and content.

Thin head and a Coca Cola look to it. Nose is giving off a bit of smoke and some chocolate, but very subtle. Taste is slightly bitter coffee and more subtle chocolate. Overall I can’t shake the feeling that this is just a very mild version of stronger beers I’ve tasted in the past.
