This beer is brewed with 100% Scottish peat smoked whisky malt. This malt generates an intense smokey flavor and aroma. In fact its intensity makes this beer almost undrinkable, unless you blend it with other ingredients. We recommend to use this product to give a balanced smoked note to foods and drinks as oysters, sauces, marinades, sausages, fatty fish, chocolate and dark beer. Improve your world by giving it a hint of smoke.

Light brown to amber in color, aroma is very peat dominant, smoke, oaky and sweet malt. Taste is less peaty and a touch sweet from the malt and has some light raisins. Did not think this was drinkable and even the label states this, was pleasantly surprised and quite enjoyed it.

Thanks to erzengel for sharing!! Pours a deep yellow with an off-white head. The smell is smoke, chloraseptic, toasted malt. The taste is caramel, smoke, sweet fruit, chloraseptic and a dry ending.

Erzengel (5644) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2015
Great prayed nose like an intense Scottish whiskey. Nice floral fruity beginning. Nice smokey body with sweetish grainy malt. Not too sweetish, quite easy to drink. Peated-bitter aftertaste with hints of smokey sweetness. Not too bad! I like it - even great sessionable!

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A hazy amber beer that pours with a white foamy head. It has a very strong peat, smoked beechwood and iodine flavour followed by a spiced earthy, chemical and smooth almond finish. Far too high an ABV for the flavour.

Bottle 25cl. Orange to pale amber, hazy color. Aroma is intensive smoked, bacon, peat, wood fire, coal. Flavor is malty, sweet, also very intensive smoked with wood fire, heavy smoked bacon, whiskey, hints of fruits, roasty smoked bitter finish. Very good and for sure easy drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlovakSniper (3980) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Brygget: 25/10/12. Bäst før: 25/10/14. Batch nr.: 879. Liquide orangé sur lequel flotte une mousse qui ne veut pas mourir. Au nez, une fumée tourbée intense mais pas excessive ou désagréable avec des pointes d’iode, de fruits, de charcuterie polonaise et de miel. Au goût, fumée complexe et douce, bonne pour mes papilles mais pas extraordinaire. Crime, ça marche ce truc de fou. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps moyen-fort avec un jeu modéré à faible des bulles et une texture assez épaisse. En finale, ma langue nage dans la fumée mais elle peut aisément sortir la tête pour respirer. Un point bonus pour le flacon de 25 cl.

Not sure what points to give to this beer. Peat all over. Smoked peat in it’s purest beer form. It had to be well brewed to get it out. After that the beer is moderately sweet. The peat pulls out the flavors of smoke, alcohol, esters. Very interesting. Before I finish the bottle I’m gonna blend it with something. Not sure with what yet.

Bottle. Dark amber body with offwhite head. Aroma is smoked with hints of malts. Taste is also smoke. Aftertaste is also malty smoke. As this is not recommended to be drunken pur it drinks really nice, if you like smoke. Nice.
