Appearance is a very dark brown with an average frothy off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is pleasantly smoky with caramel malt and hops. Flavour is a lightly acidic combination of smoke, caramel malt, light hops and a touch of scotch that really works.

cattaneopapa (228) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
650ml bottle, 6.2 alc./vol. from LCBO, Shops at Don Mills. Pours a dark brown colour with a small lasting tanned head. Smokey aroma, smokey taste. Not as smokey as the German Schlenkerla though. Which is a good thing. Notes of coffee flavor with a medium body and carbonation. Ends with a dry and spicy finish.

Great look, nice brown head that dissapears quickly. Has a nice aroma that accompanies the taste very well... the smokey flavour is nice and doeant linger too long on the palate. Goes well with pizza.

Dogbrick (9439) - 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 (1190) - 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.

Reimer96 (1512) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2014
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.

Bottle.Brown black pour, minimal white head. Aroma is smoke, and sweet malt. Taste smoke, light sweetness, fizzy carbonation, malty finish with light grains. Not bad.
