4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby body with a big cloudy beige head. Nose is smokey tar tones, cured meat, ashes and hints of candi sugars in the back. Taste is complex dark malts and whisky smoke tones, cured meat, ashes and peat with hints of licorice and leather. A bit fizzy on the palate, which is probably the only reminder that this once was a Belgian Strong Ale. For all other purposes, it now appears as a rock solid smoked. :-) A very nice and complex beer; I will be looking out for more from De Dochter van de Korenaar for sure!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at SIBF 2012. Pours murky brown. Like a slightly dilute doppelbock with a mild peat undertone, or a bit of whiskey over dark fruits and brown sugar. The flavor pleasantly builds on the aroma. Not bad at all.
