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)

Bosbouw (2100) - Gemonde, - APR 6, 2014
Mooie chocolade bruine kleur met een volle lichtbruine kraag. Goede volle geur. Ruikt peated, gerookt, vanille en hout en iets ziltig. Smaakt vol, rook, peated, vanille en hout. Goede alcohol nasmaak. Lekker.

matbli (143) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 25, 2015
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.

While I am not the biggest fan of peat, in this brew it is not to overwhelming. Decent brew.

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

Alusmamuts (1117) - LATVIA - JUL 11, 2015
Datk brown with medium yellow head. Good bitter taste, also something roasted, but contains a strong "medical" note, which is not pleasent for me.

Silvan7 (902) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 24, 2015
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.
