I’m always a bit impressed with peated beers like this. Halfway between a nice scotch flavor and a campfire. Obviously, the peat dominates the aroma and flavor, but there is a slight sweetness that moderates the punch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a big tanned head on top. Creamy head that lasts long. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Alcohol detected. Flavour has coffee and loads of alcoholic flavours. Full flavoured, some chocolate but most of all is alcohol. Second pour gave me a huge head that wrecked my keyboard... Overall a decent beer, but a bit too much on the alcohol, even tough is an 8% beer.
