Tap @ CBC14-red. Reddish brown. Beef jerky, bbq woody charcoals. Medium bodied. Well smoked, peaty, like an Islay whiskey. Feels almost overpowering peaty right now. But enjoyable nontheless.

Ernest (6727) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle (from the brewer at Gaenstaller Zoiglstube). Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, toasted/roasted grain), with STRONG notes of smoke (peat/Islay whisky, campfire, chimney) and juniper. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Smoke bomb! Even after all the liquid is gone from the glass, it still smells intensely of Islay whisky and campfire. Schlenkerla is only faintly smoky by comparison. Maybe a little intense even for me, but damned clean and balanced in the mouth.
