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)

caesar (5119) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2013
Bottled, Feb 2013. Slight hazy ruby color, medium frothy light brown head. Aroma of soft peat, some red fruit, some dark malts, slight spicy yeast. There’s some sweet note that softens the peat, which is good for me. In taste it’s more dry, again quite some peat, some nutty tones. Nicely balanced as always from de Dochter vd Korenaar as the peat usually will overpower a beer completely. Here it does dry out the beer quite a lot, but there’s relatively a lot of flavor and aroma of the base beer left. A wonderful base beer that blends extremely well with all these barrels. Peat is not my favorite, preferred the blended oak for that, but it’s a lovely beer.

Lassigo (1) - - MAY 10, 2013 does not count
We loved the dark, rich flavour. We thought it was roasty, had chocolate and smoky tones, a beautiful ruby colour, minimal head, fortunately not too sweet, soft carbonation, though a pretty abrupt finish.
