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)

Penso che a fine serata al villaggio un mio compagno me l’abbia portata almeno tre volte di fila, good very good...

SlovakSniper (3634) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 Une bouteille de 66 cl. Une robe brune avec une tête mousseuse qui ne tient pas la route. Un nez de grains rôtis et fumés qui ne résistent pas au parfum dominant du fût de bourbon. Au goût, une répétition quasi exacte des découvertes olfactives. Du bourbon, de la fumée, des choses grillées et rôties. En bouche, un corps qui résiste au fût avec un pétillement adéquat et une texture somme toute crémeuse. Une finale parfumée par l’eau-de-vie et ses notes boisées et fruitées si particulières. Je ne suis pas un grand fan des bières enfûtées. Pourquoi vouloir masquer le fruit d’un dur labeur par du bourbon américain? Bref, une bière buvable qui ne possède pas le charme de la version régulière.

thirdeye11 (5712) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 2, 2012
(750ml bottle thanks to Walt at RBWG) clearish rich orange-amber with wispy tan bubbles. Nose of bandaid, astringent, caramel, very medicinal. Taste of bandaid, cherry, medicine, caramel, plastic, weird for me. Sticky/oily body and linger.

Caskalefan (153) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Deep copper/ruby pour with a thick, lomglasting head. Extremely complex and intense nose of sherry, pralines in cream, huge peat, overripe dark fruit (figs, dates, raisins) walnuts, toffee, vanilla and oak, and earthy hops. Nice lacing, and a very heavy, almost syrupy body that delivers a mouth-coating finish. Taste is even more complex with all of the above plus raisins and even bleu cheese. This beauty reminds me of NC Old Stock Ale if it had been aged on peated oak. Absolutely my new, hands down favorite smoked beer.

Yves (2479) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2012
Brown coloured beer with small off-white head and only few carbonation. Roasted malty aroma, coffee, whiky hinted. Full slight sparkling palate. Finish is roasted bitter spicy. Very nice one.

660 ml bottle, bottled November 2011, bottle #4316. The card attached to the bottle says this was aged in Connemara Whiskey casks. Served in a DFH Signature Glass, the beer pours a reddish/brown color with an inch tan head that stays around for a long time. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, it smells like dark fruit, peat/smoke, caramel, and some sweet spices. The taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like peat/smoke, dark fruit, dark bread, and some dark chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s creamy and smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a pretty good overall brew. Even at $14.99 a bottle, I’d certainly buy this again in the future.

mansquito (3914) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria tap: I believe that this is the version that I had, judging by the taste. In any case, it pours a dark brownish color with a a brownish head. Aroma is Whiskey, peat smoke, subdued fruitiness. Taste is much the same. The whiskey and peat (so I guess Single Malt) is not too powerful, but it is the main thing going on in this beer. The malty and fruity aspects are definitely more in the background. However, this is still interesting and drinkable.

Dogbrick (9109) - 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.
