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.

Shared 0,25 l bottle at Cardinal. Clear golden with a white film. Aroma of brick fireplace. Smokey, malty, chemical sweet. Medium to full body.

DuffMan (6554) - 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.

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 (3148) - 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 (3449) - 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.

Smell remindes me of when I was young and worked on my Mustang. Warm metal. Let it air for a while and it will sweeten up a bit. Interesting!

RichardGretton (4229) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy amber beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is like TCP, probably meant to be smokey. The aroma is malty with some roastedness, bitterness and spice but with still that smokey TCP characteristic. Overall a drinkable beer but strange in parts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2014
Flaske 0,25l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Batch 879. Lysebrun. Klar - men veldig uklar når klumpsedimentene i flaska tar løs. Nesten ikke skum. Kraftig aroma av røkt torv. Heftig. Smaken er lær & røkt torv. Ikke særlig annet. Som øl er det så som så (men vi blir jo advart) - men som smakstilsetter må det fungere veldig bra. Artig.

czar (4159) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. cloudy pale yellow greyish pour with a nice off-white head, some retention and lacing. strong peated malts (duh), iron, sweet honeyed and lightly spicy maltiness, some berries, coffee berries, pepper, honey-like sweetness, astringent woodsy notes. average to moderate carbonation, light body - oily and a bit sticky, slightly boozy, harsh grassy-spicy-smoky-peated finish. btw, i do like peated scotchs but this is horrid.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Rubber-scented band aids and floral peat protrusions battle it out in this extreme brewing experiment.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the blond gown.
-The mouthfeel is actually refined for such an experiment. The aromas and flavors are the sole purveyors of nastiness.
-If you love Lagavulin-like flavors, you might like this. If you don’t, you might feel like throwing up.
-Effervescence helps the sipping.
-What the saying of ’too much of a good thing’ yadda yadda?

Bottle.

Bottle at Brew Beers and Ciders, Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium amber with a bubbly white head and a little lace. The aroma is 100% earthy, smoked peat, medicinal. The flavour is rich earthy peat medicinal with a neutral veggie mineral palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
