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)

Mooie chocolade bruine kleur met een volle lichtbruine kraag. Goede volle geur. Ruikt peated, gerookt, vanille en hout en iets ziltig. Smaakt vol, rook, peated, vanille en hout. Goede alcohol nasmaak. Lekker.

(Drinking date: 28 February 2014) The beer is pitch black, no light comes through. Thin layer of foam on the head. The beer smells a lot like whiskey, a lot of wood and smoke in the aroma. I don?t really like it. The carbonation and the mouthfeel are good. The taste is better, but still a lot of smoke and wood in the taste. I think this is a really good beer, but it is not my type of beer. So I rated this beer how I personally like it, so that?s why this beer gets a low score unfortunately. So overall this beer has a powerfull wood and smoke aroma and taste, which I personally don?t like. But I think that other people like this beer a lot. So it?s not a bad beer, it?s really good, but I personally don?t like it :( That?s why it gets the total score of 2.9 (Unfortunately I threw this beer away)

This beer has a lovely, dark, rich flavour. It has roasty, chocolate and smoky tones. A beautiful ruby colour, minimal head and favourably not too sweet. Not so much carbonation. An abrupt finish.

Abijen (2197) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2014
Pours a dark brown red beer with a good white head. Smells smoked, bacon, paint, malts. Tastes smoked, paint, malts, bit vanilla and coffee with a good bitter finish. Very complex. Medium body, average carbo and a sticky oily texture.

Birra che fa davvero onore alle belgian ale invecchiate. Il gusto intensamente dolce, caramellato e speziato si integra alla perfezione con i profondi sentori torbati del whisky. E’ reperibile anche una buona dose di amaro. Forse è eccessivo l’impatto alcolico, ma la trovo tutto sommato equilibrata.

Olut kaatuu lasiin samean ruskeana muodostaen vaalean beigen vaahdon. Tuoksu on voimakkaan turpeinen ja savuinen. Mukana myös paahtuneisuutta. Maultaan olut on paahtunut, voimakkaan turpeinen, voimakkaan savuinen ja lakritsinen. Simplistinen, koska savu ja turpeisuus peittää paljon allensa.

Bottle@home, 660 ml. A clear ruby brown beer with a delicate beige head. The nose is peated, malty and bitter sweet. It is a full bodied beer, with a low carbonation. Taste is peated, bitter sweet and caramel malts. Palate is mild, lasting bitter sweet body. Overall it is a very nice beer, with a nice peaty touch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
