COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch # 428. Please be aware that this is not a subtle beer. If you are unable to appreciate the flavor of Islay Scotch whiskey, then this beer is certainly not for you. Three months of aging in fresh Islay whiskey barrels did this. Certainly great for whiskey lovers, but not necessarily for those is search of subtle and balanced flavors. The timid should look elsewhere! We love it though!

Ingredients: Grimstad water, malted barley, hops and yeast. 19°P, 30 IBU.

Dark brown in colour, the aroma hit you like a steam train right after opening the bottle, smokiness, tar, peat, whisky, ashtray. If you like your beer that includes the following then this is something for you, peak, tar, salt, smoke, wood, ash, liquorice.

Pours black with a smoky aroma and a decent tan head. There is a very smoky treacle flavor, slightly sweet with a whiskey finish. Too whiskyboozy for me
