Quite liking this. Full confession I just finished drinking an oz or two of lagavullin so not sure my pallet is very fresh! Pours clear amber with a nice initial head and very little lacing. Nose is toffee and campfire. Notes of light fruit, some smoke, some toffee maybe some breakfast tea.light scotch peat notes as well. Tastes are med sweet, light bitter. A bit of a sticky body with lively carbonation. Alcohol is very well hidden. Donít know why but I had low expectations for this, but Iím pleasantly surprised.

Reddish copper pour with lots of foamy white head. Boozy hoppy fruit smell. Very strong taste. Smoky. Very smoky. Raisin. Malty. Highly carbonated. Sweet. Cannot place this aftertaste. My wife who Iím sharing it with is not enjoying it. She just described as Luke warm human spit with coors aftertaste.
The good bit is that I Luke it so I get to finish her beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Large bottle from the LCBO. This one was interesting - made me think of screetch even though its aged in whisky (probably just because when I think of young and hot whiskey screetch is the profile that comes to the forefront). Huge amount of peat, alcohol. tobacco and some bacon. Alcohol and peat overwhelm the palate - curious if there were different batches or what because the reviews seem to be split on this one. Think with either some time or a more balanced approach this could be quite tasty; but can only rate what I had.
