3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by H.G. at the Zoiglstube. An exceptionally soft body with a layered and complex nose of salty peat smoke, soil, earth, nuts, wood, twig, seed crackers, and more. Very rich, sweet and beefy malt with astounding clarity of all components. Islay-like malt, juniper wood, leather, smoked sea salt, good god. Savory and salivating with remarkable fluffiness. This might be the closest smoke character to Islay malt I’ve experienced. And only 10% of the grain bill being Gotland smoked malt, it really does boggle the mind. Unreal.
