Not a big fan of this one. I thought I would like the "smokey" taste, but the peat taste is too overwhelming. Not a horrible beer, but far from being a favorite.

Clear dark amber with a tiny ring of foam. Smoke, some chocolate bitterness, leather, roasted nuts. Taste is balanced, a little bitter. Light body with a thin texture.

Dogbrick (8795) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. The beer is cola-colored with a medium thin off-white head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of smoked malt and chocolate. Medium body with flavors of peat malt, dark chocolate and earthy hops. The finish is smoky with a peaty malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Little to no head. Pours dark - almost stout like. The smoky flavour really shines through. Would pair well with a gamy meat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewturba (1115) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
Pours a hazy medium-dark brown with some light coming through and a small spotty dull white head. Aroma is smoked malt, peat, rich darker malts, and a touch of oak. Flavour is smoke(kinda like liquid smoke), oak, rich dark malts, mild sweetness, and faint dark dried fruits.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a clear dark amber with a red hue. Aroma of peat, campfire, nutty, biscuit, wood and leather. Taste is leather, peat, wet wood, biscuit and nuts. Overall the peat is big and bold but balanced and nice to drink.

Drinkable in small quantities. Nice for sharing with a friend or spouse. Reminded us a bit of Ireland, where we would often smell peat burning for home heating. Medium sourness, creamy texture.

DuffMan (7138) - 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.

Bottle courtesy of sic1314. Poured a clear dark brown with a round white head. The aroma is smoky, roast malt. The flavour is medium is light bitter with a light, watery malt bitter palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Lacks body and flavour.
