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)

Dogbrick (9320) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Sample at the Pints For Pelotonia charity tasting on 07/21/12: Pours a dark brown color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoky malt, fruit and hops. Medium body with flavors of peaty malt, smoke, hops and ripe fruit. The finish is slightly sour with a lingering peat aftertaste. Fairly one-note but decent overall.

ClubGonzo (4610) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby body with a big cloudy beige head. Nose is smokey tar tones, cured meat, ashes and hints of candi sugars in the back. Taste is complex dark malts and whisky smoke tones, cured meat, ashes and peat with hints of licorice and leather. A bit fizzy on the palate, which is probably the only reminder that this once was a Belgian Strong Ale. For all other purposes, it now appears as a rock solid smoked. :-) A very nice and complex beer; I will be looking out for more from De Dochter van de Korenaar for sure!

trevor211 (1408) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Tap at SIBF 2012. Pours murky brown. Like a slightly dilute doppelbock with a mild peat undertone, or a bit of whiskey over dark fruits and brown sugar. The flavor pleasantly builds on the aroma. Not bad at all.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Shared bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Hazy, deep red-brown pour with a short tan head leaving little lace. Nose is smoky peat, dates and a bit of booze. Heavy body with light carbonation, yielding a lovely round, smooth mouth feel. Peat, wood, caramel, blue cheese, raisins, dates and some light citrus peel. Finish is medium and remains as complex as the swallow, with a bit more wood and cheese, with some whisky creeping in. Very nicely balanced - a lovely drop and my favorites Belgian Strong.

Sampled at THE FESTIVAL, MA. Pours a deep brown with creamy brown lacing. Aroma is tar, sweet fruit, alcohol and peat. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of sweet fruit, peat, smoke, ash, alcohol and tar. Eh.

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.
