Certainly an interesting taste indeed! A burnt smoky taste with barley undertones ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. Pours a nice copper colour. Aroma is slightly earthy and smoky, Not my favourite style but quite drinkable.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2012
On draught. Pours very, very dark with little head. The aroma is peaty, smoky with a bit of malt, leather and vanilla. The taste is smoky-bitter, which is kind of pleasant. There is some malt sweetness here. This was interesting.

Pours clear and very dark with a slight head. Aroma is very strong of peat and smoke. Taste masks alcohol well and the smoke and scotch come through well.

lukin (556) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
draught. Pours almost black, ruby when held to the light. Little to no head. Aroma is strong scotch, peaty, smoky. Taste is also dominated by the smoke and peat, backdrop of sweeter malts. Very unique, need to be in the right mood, but if you like scotch this one will please.

Listigovers (819) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
This one is right up my alley. Smells like an Islay single malt. Pure black with a lingering tan head. Very smoky and peated. Lingering smoke. Crisp palate but thin bodied... really its only downfall. A must drink for scotch fans.

Metalchopz (3014) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Originally rated December 2004. Sampled at Vineyards in Ottawa. Poured a very dark red colour and had some lacing. The aromas were roasted and very intriguing. Hard to find the right scent. Some dried raisins and other fruits. Taste was smoked and bitter with a medium-full mouthfeel.

Church key putting more batteries into the operation. This one smells smokey and tastes like flamed leather. Black pour and roasty malts give it lots of substance. on tap at volos.

herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Dark brown pour, small tan head. Aroma of smokey malt, a little chocolate, maple syrup. Smooth medium body. Smoke and whiskey pretty much. Good solid beer. Not sessionable but nice for something different. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Johnsense (1247) - - JAN 5, 2012
Black pour, little head. Aroma of dark fruit, cigarette smoke and dark toffee. Taste of peat, smoke, toasted malt, some brown sugar. Medium body - carbonation is right for the style. Prefer this one on tap, but still a fairly interesting beer and one that I will pick up from the store in Campbellford.
