Strong scent of smoke and bbq. Pours near black with amber hues. Lighter body than expected but still substantial. Flavours of peaty scotch, caramel, malt and ribs. Great beer for sipping and would definitely buy again

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

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
