Draught at borefts 2011. I like beers with a smoked aroma, but this was a bit to much smoke. Well actually mostly smoke and nothing else. I would imagine that when one uses a water pipe and after smoking drink the water it would come very close to this...

A: Deep brown with some red notes and a huge off white head. N: Heavy smoke on the nose, a bit metallic and a nice wooden tone. Hint of plum as well. T: heavy smoke flavour with some tart berry flavour. Single malt flavour. O: Nice!

Saeglopur (1576) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - APR 2, 2016
500 ml bottle bb 05/16 from my EU Local Swap 1/2016 sender omhper, thanks!
Dark copper body, with a medium, fluffy, lacing, light beige head.
Aroma of dominant peat, wood, some spices, some caramel.
Tastes also of dominant peat, smoked wood, spices, caramel, some dark fruits.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes smokey, wooden, dry, a bit sweet, a bit fruity.

OK, but not my cup of tea, as I don’t like peat. The nose is almost only peat, taste is a bit more varied, with some dark malts and fruit notes. If you like peat dominated beers, this is perfect, but I’m not one of those people.

brokensail (15203) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Thanks, Viktor. Not sure why I even bothered trying this...well, I know why, it’s just not a very good reason. Amber beer with some khaki foam. Pretty much what I expected here. A lot of smoke, plastic, rubber, and soap. Holy smokes. Big time herbal quality to go along with it. Some grass, baked apple, peat, and moss. Very strong smoke to the flavor. Perfumey, too. Not a fan.

phaleslu (8969) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle shared by one of the Swedes, presumably, at the RB Best Awards - thanks again, Viktor or Christer! Pours an amber color with a small off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves ropes of lace in the glass. A little rubbery atop notes of smoke, caramel, peat, oak, juniper, and earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a peaty, sweet mouthfeel that finishes dry. Good peaty smoked ale.

joeneugs (5269) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle at RBWG. It pours an amber color with a tan head. The aroma is smoky with some peat and a little ham. Plastic notes. The flavor has peat smoke, plastic and some herbals near the finish. Very strong flavors. Weird stuff and kinda harsh on the palate.
