2nd beer in the serie, thanks to Blazer 06 for the share. pours deep dark, tan head. aroma and flavors, lots of smoke, peat nose, just a style of barrels I can’t get into, this one is just overly char/peat, the whiskey aspect is submerged in char, leaving a bad plastic finish with hints of chocolate. Not against the use of peat, but in this case, it’s just too much.

Bottle shared with others. Poured black with a medium tan head that dissipated slowly. Aroma had strong peat aroma with a seaweed and smoke note that covers up the rest of the beer. I barely picked up any of the usual black hole notes. Flavor was similarly over whelmed by the whiskey with strong peat and algae notes. The coffee and bitter chocolate come out a bit but not much at all.

I assume this is the scotch whisky edition... I don’t know why I continue to try scotch-aged beers. I can’t even get through this rating, all I can smell and taste is iodine, seaweed, and peat from the scotch barrels. For a beer that has a great base and certainly a nice bourbon edition, the scotch version was undrinkable for me.

daknole (10799) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Wow to the Tampa crew. Black pour, beige head. Liquid banaids and smoke. Nothing but bandaids. Phenol bomb. Hard to even drink honestly. Overkill.

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2010
From Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, DK. Bottled, 260610. Black with beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and peat. Flavor is balanced complex of coffee, chocolate, smoke and sweet malt.

MissouriBrent (122) - Missouri, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Aroma is alcohol and sweet malt with a good amount of smokey peat aroma. Poured a decent dark brown head. Very black color. Flavor is very smokey. Alcohol is evident. Malt flavor is very interesting, I do get some scotch flavors. Body is on the thin side of medium bodied. Nice beer. I have a bit of a stuffy nose today, so I am sure I am missing some of the more subtle flavors and aromas. Overall I have no real complaints about this beer. Very drinkable, or should I say sip-able, because a beer like this has to be sipped and savored.

fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Poured very black, lots of roasted peat, coffee, alcohol, little molasses, little vanilla, little dark fruits. I like scotch, but it was hard to drink because of the liquid peat added was to much.

6th June 2010. RBESG 10 Grand Tasting at the Brasserie 4:20 Warehouse. Big thanks to Alex for allowing us to take this off the shelves at his warehouse! Black beer, no head. Sweet peaty whisky nose. Sweet chocolate and dark malt and whisky. Extremely well joined up. Finishes semi dry with a little warmth. Nice whisky RIS.
