3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Speciaal Bier Winkel, Bodegraven
Hazy amber color with small head. Soft but evident peat aroma with light vanilla and very light alcohol, impression of cheese. Full bodied, yet with lean mouthfeel; good malt flavor, with a touch of caramel and toffee, moderately sweet, with strong bitterness, very good alcohol management, and a roasted nuts final.
Clean, powerful (lightly boozy), good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, BB somewhere in 2022, large sample. Clear amber color with big chunks of debris, short lasting off-white head. Quite peaty aroma, smoke, some iodine, caramel and amber malt. It’s not as intense peat as I would have expected. Malt base underneath the beer seems a bit boring. In taste it’s a bit fruity, slight smoked, bit dry. High alcohols, esters and fusels come up. Like the bottle says, like a blend between whiskey and beer. Well, I’m not a whisky lover, so can’t judge on the quality that much. The peat I can easily handle, I just think the beer is a bit thin and has a bit too much alcohol.

I don’t remember details because it has been a while. I also assume that something could have been wrong with the bottle. I drunk it together with another person and it was bad. Tasted to me like the worst of the two worlds, not best like the slogan says. We were not able to drink the bottle. Tasted like beer mixed with smokepowder and extra alcohol.

Pours an orange beer with a good white head. Smells alcoholic, honey and malts. Tastes sweet and alcoholic. Clearly a whiskey taste. Average carbo, thick body and a sticky texture.

This is a very peaty beer. It advertises itself as half whiskey and half beer and I buy that designation. Very alcoholic.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yeast flakes are visible when pouring a beautiful head. Lovely. Great aroma of smoke and peat. Earthiness too in the sip. Sticky and maybe a tad too sweet, still a very nice beer.
Bottle from Van Erp Roden.
