Bottle. Brown pour with tan head. Infected? Fruity tart, yeast, Brett aromas, saison. Herbal, fruit, Brett tart notes. Some oxidation. Not what it should be, but I probably like it better this way.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mahogany brown in color... Aroma of peated malts, smoke, tobacco, humidor... Flavor is fairly thin initially, smoke, peated malts and tobacco, would be pretty bland if it weren't for the barrel aging... Lots of peat on finish... Minimal carbonation, almost like drinking scotch...Decent

"nice use of peat, along with a tobacco aspect to the aroma and flavor that i really dug. if it weren’t for those things, this would be uninspired, but it turned out a nice malt bomb if a little thin."

12oz bottle -
Aroma and flavor had some oxidation and while sometimes I think oxidation can be nice in certain styles (including scotch ales), because this was an ale of what thought was on the "delicate" side, the oxidation didn’t help it. But, still a really nice beer.
