4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottles from Epic. The best beer they make, and that’s saying a lot. Pours a hazy amber color with a trim beige ring of foam. Smells and tastes predominantly of cane sugar, yeast, sweet malt, and toasted oak. Like a barley wine on the palate, but very drinkable for the ABV.

On tap at the Flying Saucer by the lake. Poured a hazy dark amber with a frothy cream top and nice lacing. Tasted of caramel malts, peat, boozy, woody, with a subtle smoke finish. Lively carbonation, medium body

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lots of aromas - smoke, bourbon, sweetness and oak. Hops seem to add perfume.
Small off-white head. Dark Amber color with some light cloudiness.
Palate is heavy on sweetness, medium body; average to a bit soft carbonation. Finish is long, sweet, smoky and bourbon.
Overall I like the bourbon and honey-like sweetness and the light oak and bourbon. Still the base beer is not too remarkable.

Deep copper, clear, thin white head. Aroma of sweet malts, over-ripe dark fruits, vanilla, light smoky notes, some lighter fruity notes of banana. Flavor: toasty malt with some caramel sweetness, more dark fruit, cherry wood smoky notes re evident, whisky barrel, leathery notes and some earthy spice.

I was intrigued by the name.... Peat and smoky malty excellence totally distract from the esthery weirdness that normally make me hate belgian beers. I like it a lot!

Bottle. Batch #19. Hazy caramel color w thin head and low carbonation. Sweet scotch caramel aroma and taste. Smooth slick mouthfeel w a pronounced but not overpowering alcohol and oakiness. I don't get any smokiness which is a bit disappointing as I was looking for the peat. Still a solid sipping beer.
