COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wrapped bottle, striped red paper with sticker "Peated whiskey cask" on the lower right end of the "logo"
An 9% ABV beer in which the fermented sugars were all obtained from malt (20 degrees Plato). A generous dose of hops and a long maturation time makes this beer best of the best. This beer is bottle conditioned and will go through taste evolution during many years. Selected by the brewer from his best peated whisky casks. Matured for a quarter of a year. Winner of the Zythos Beer Festival (ZBF) consumer prize 2011. (Translation by Martinus)

Bottle from L’Abbaye des Saveurs, Lille, n.14775, bottled Apr 2011
Very dark color, almost black, with medium sized brownish head. Aroma of medicine, hint of smoke, orange peel. Good body strength, with a reasonably round mouthfeel; strong chocolate flavor, with some roasted malt, caramel; compared to the black wrapped "Oak Aged Blended", the peat (which is mild) masks the liquorice; there is some residual sweetness, to soften the beer.
Well brewed, and more interesting than its sister.

Fin (7364) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
On tap at Zythos, Brabanthal, Leuven, Belgium Saturday 28th April 2012 Strange aroma, I expected to get just elastoplast and iodine but instead of the usual peated whisky elements I also get a bit dose of piss, real goodly splash of urine, which is really quite interesting and strangely with the other aromas it isn’t to unsettling. Taste is also all things peaty, but soft in mouth with some dark honey, malts and a light smokiness showing as well. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov15 3.6
