Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan brown head. Nose and taste is peat, barbecued pork, smoked oak, whiskey, dark caramel, dark chocolate and peated malt. Flavors meld well and are strong but not overpowering. There is a nice subtle quality to the beer. Solid beer. Medium body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours brown with red reflexes a creamy colored head that reduces fast to a nice lacing. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla, whisky, peat, old oak wood, brown sugar and a touch of smoke. In taste really nice balanced, quite sweet in the beginning but turning into light bitterness in the finish. Slightly warming.
I’m not a fan of peat in beer, but in this case the peat aroma isn’t overhelming. It’s rather like a spice.

Black and dark. Very strong aroma and taste, with some elements of coffee, roasted malt, coffee. However, the main note resembles some kind of medicine making the beer very specific and not for me

On tap @ Zythos Treviso 2015. Ramata, quasi marrone, velata, con schiuma beige finissima e persistente. Aroma molto intenso, tostato, torbato, cacao amaro, legno, alcolico di frutta rossa sotto spirito, amarene e ciliege. Incredibilmente complesso. Zucchero di canna sembra presente. Dolce amabile, poi amara da tostatura, torbata, e legnosa. Calda, rotonda, poco carbonata e poco corposa, di consistenza quasi oleosa. Equilibrata ed armonica

Wow, amazing Scotch whisky aroma - have never had this in a beer before. All the smoke and essence of Islay comes through. Pour is pretty good - dark brown with light tan head. On flavor, I want to like this more than I do. I feel like there’s a hole in the middle of the flavor profile somehow. That said, still pretty good, and the Scotch side counts for a lot in this one. Definitely unique.
