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.
