A very interesting, unique, tasty beer, not quite like any other beer we have tasted. Pours a cloudy bright orange, like a sunset, with some sediment, and a thick white head. Smells of rye, Pinot noir, berries and smoked cheese. Smoky taste throughout. Lots of smoked blue cheese or Gouda in the taste, along with lots of figs, some berries, earthyness like mushrooms, caramel and a bit of whisky in the finish. One of the more interesting beers we have had in a while. Had in the bottle at the Monks Kettle.

Bottle bought at Geers. Pours orange no head. Aroma is medicinal, peat, malt. Taste is quite sweet, peat but not so much as the embrasse oak series. Still not fond of peat.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2015 660 ml Bottle. . Apperance: Amber colour with no real head. Aroma: Peated whisky, oak, malts, Herbs and spices Taste Smokey whisky with oak on a malts backbone, quite some herbs and spices and a hint of peat, very complex. Medium to full body, average carbonation.. Compared to the standard finess there are quite some peated,smokey,wood whiskey tones giving it a different character alto still having something from the original there.
