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)

Sample at SBWF 2013. Massive smoky smell, also quite boozy. Smells like a very smoky whisky. Similar taste. Powerfull but still pretty easy to drink.

@ SBWF 2013: stor fatton. Smaken är ganska rökig men ändå len. Fin balans mellan rök och fat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teddybeer (2598) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle. Brown colour with an off-white head with good lacework and medium lasting. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, peat, whisky and candy sugar. Flavor is very compley mainly dominated by peat and whisky, some wood notes and red fruits are present, toasted with notes of candy sugar. The final is alcoholic with whisky hints.

Aniela (3103) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Brownish beer with a nice beige head. Smokey, fruity aroma with nice sweetness and some caramell notes. Fruity, malty, caramell, woody flavour with vanilla and choclate hints. Love the combo between fruitiness and smokeness.

Aroma of mince meat, peat, oak and slight onion. Pours murky brown with a small head and floaties. Taste is peaty whisky, soil, and gingerbread. Not my favorite but impressive.
