COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Osprey87 (1611) - WALES - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle, 2 years old, batch #110. Clear golden orange, highly sparkling with a very large foamy white head. Aroma is heavily peated, fabric plaster, slightly sour, smoke. Body is light, foamy, some spritz. Taste is heavy smoke, peated whisky, a little sharp in the finish. I actually quite liked this. Certainly not ’undrinkable’ as advertised.

mkel07 (3339) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique July 2013. There is a lot going on in this beer with lots of earthy aromas mixed with a smokiness. Long smokey finish, great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Yorker (1167) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2014
25 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy amber with quite a bit of sediment and an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are peat, smoke, caramel, and iodine - with a dry finish.

pilsnerrogge (2491) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2014
Bottled:
Pours amber with a slight haze. Large, thick head.
Aroma is loads of sour peat. There’s also smoke and some tar. After awhile some weird notes of detegents and cloth shows up.
Taste is more sour peat, sour smoke, tar and detergents.
The label said: "almost undrinkable". Well, the label didn’t lie. This was a tough one.

Lisowczyk (48) - POLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Butelka W barwie jasny, mętny pomarańcz. Piany praktycznie nie ma. Aromat niesamowicie torfowy, nuty dymu drzewnego, wędzonej ryby, niektórym może się kojarzyć minimalnie z lizolem. W smaku silny torf, do tego rewelacyjne nuty dymu, płonącego drewna, popiołu, wędzonych potraw zwłaszcza szynki, ryby. W tle nieco owoców. Goryczki zasadniczo nie wyczuwam. Niskie wysycenie, ściągające na języku.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Light-medium golden colour, frothy, clingy white head. Aroma is intense leathery peat, off the charts, wow! I happen to love peaty scotches so this is right in my wheelhouse. Heavily peaty, tannic palate, tons of earthy leather, matched (rather surprisingly) with pale malts that have a sweet and slightly sour quality. This would certainly be as the label indicates "almost undrinakable" for the vast majority of consumers, beer geeks included, but it worked very well for me. An unusual experiment that I enjoyed immensely.

motelpogo (6559) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 23, 2014
bottle sample from the nogne o stand at braukunst live 2014 in munich. clear golden with a minimal head; certainly a very peated aroma, woody; tastes a lot like whisky and soda; interesting stuff

Grzesiek79 (3181) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Small bottle 250ml. To bardzo pijalne piwo az powala zapachem zweglonego torfu, dymem drzewnym, weglem i spalonymi tostami. W nozdrzach taki zapach ze mozna zaczadziec. Piana OK, trwala, kolor lekko metnawy ale niebardzo, bursztynowy. W smaku torf whisky oraz drzewna wysuszona kora. Te aromaty dominuja totalnie. Nie dla kazdego to piwo ale dobrze ze ostrzegli o tym na etykiecie:)

Enjoyit (3455) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2014
Unclear golden of color with a white foamy head. An aroma of smoke, weak sweets, peat and smoke. A flavor of smoke, peat, smoke, peat and weak sweets.
