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)

Been really looking forward to trying this one. Aroma vanilla, light smoke, honey. Taste is somewhere between a Belgian strong ale and an imperial stout. Sweet roasted malts with a nice bitterness and definite peated whiskey notes in the aftertaste. Lived up to my expectations as a whiskey fan as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fkoolen (671) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Pours a clear dark-brown colour with a slim beige head. Nose is mainly peated whiskey, smook and wood, but also has an unpleasant sour tone. Taste first has smoke, liquorice and whiskey but later the strange sour tone in the aroma also hits the tastebuds, sadly. Body is too light for this style of beer, low carbonated. Disappointing, especially because of the excellent regular Embrasse.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Whoa, not a fan of this one at all! Nice blend of mahogany and crimson on the pour that produced a solid eggshell cap. Nose is heavy, heavy peat, asphalt, smoke, cigar, aspirin, and oak. Very medicinal, chemical, and peaty in flavor as well. Bandaid, rubber, nail polish remover, paint thinner, and ash. Perhaps a bad bottle?

VsXsV (3126) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2013. Hazy deep brown liquid with small light brown head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt, peat, oak, bread and caramel. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of smoke, chocolate and oak. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Nice and smokey.

ElManana (1307) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2013
Pours a reddish brown with a lacing and creamy beige head. Iodine and tar in the nose. Smells like something you absolutely do not want to drink, medicines anyone? Medium body, sweet overripe fruit, and then ashes and iodine - very VERY heavy on the peat. Alcoholic finish. I don’t dig peat, ’nuff said.

RW80 (1469) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2013
660 ml bottle brown unclear colour with an off white head. Aroma: toasted malts, peat, whiskey and some caramel. Flavour heavy Peated(smoke and barrel) and whisky dominate the palet there are some wood notes, final alcohol with whisky notes which lasts long. As it warms up some fruity towns show, don’t drink this to cold. Not as complex as the Oak aged blended version. Which shows a broad palete when roled through the mouth. The taste is more one dimensional while being quite impressive. Medium carbonation and medium body slightly oily texture, However the big taste defines everything and makes it a sipper.

olsvammel (4727) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2013
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
