Pours a mostly translucent ruby amber with a medium creamy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, smoke, woody, some chocolate and sweet maltiness. Flavors of smokey, peat, earthy, candy sugar sweet malts. Some creamy vanilla notes, woody and some caramel. Nice flavor on this one. Well done.

22oz. bomber. Pours a cloudy dark copper with a light tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of caramel, roasted malts, pears and a hint of peat. Flavor is of smoked malts, caramel, toffee and a slight fruit finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety. Nice brew.

22ozíer ... poured reddish-brown with just a thin whisp of a top, quite still and sheeny. Wow, this has a butt-kicking aroma, full of smoke, peat and rustic atmosphere. The promise is delivered in the first sample ... ashy and peaty, this is a smoky, flavorful brew. I need some cheese in a bad way with this beer. Bit on the thin side, perhaps, but this is a darn good beer! (#3209, 11/18/2007)

Pours deep amber into a stem glass. Off-white Smutty head. Dark caramel aromas. Creamy and fizzy with upfront 3 musketeers -- turns quite smoky - almost Rauch-lite. Very nice.

22 oz bomber. Pours a reddish/brown with a small off whiteish creamy head that coats the body very nicely. Big smokey aroma of peat that makes me think this should almost be a ruachbier but hey it isnít. So we have a peat smoke aroma with notes of amber malts, honey, and a slight hint of chocolate. Flavor of smoke, I know it isnít a rauchbier, citrus hops, chocolate and a little touch of alcohol. Nice stuff..

PilsnerPeter (3034) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Tap at Barcade: Amber brown pour topped by a tan dense film. Nice thick velvety carbonation, smooth on the palate. Aroma of earthy, lightly smoked malts and cholate-nut hints. The flavor has a roasted peanut character with a light vanilla hints in the background; along with caramel, peat, and a nice smokey finish. A well crafted Scotch Ale.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma is medium sweet. Smells malty with notes of grains, nuts, light wood, brown sugar, caramel, and a hint of chocolate. Poured dark brown with hints of ruby and amber and a large, creamy, khaki head that lasted throughout. Small lacing. Hazy with many small floating particles. Not sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of chocolate, toasted malts, hazelnuts, smoke, and wood. Medium body. Texture is chewy and a little sticky. Average carbonation. Toasted, malty finish.
