Bottle shared with Dutchdrebus. Slightly unclear yellow color, small white head that diminishes quickly but leaves fair lacing. Lots of peat in the aroma. Taste has even more peat, peated whisky, slightly fingerpaint I used as a kid and malts. I think it’s exactly what was intended and I guess it’s nice if you like peated beers but it’s not my thing.

Lowenbrau (2348) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 14, 2014
500ml bottle. @home 14-07-2014.
BBD: out of date for one year.
In short: smokey one.
Pours hazy dark gold with little white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Intense smokey aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is basically smokey, some lingering sweet notes. Unbalanced.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein helles rötlichbraunes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr rauchig, leicht röstmalzig süß, fruchtig. Geschmack sehr holzig, fruchtig, röstmalzig, dunkle Früchte.

tmrmwel (1078) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours light golden with a very big creamy head. Aroma is burned malts and pleasant whiffs of whisky. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is roasted malts with peat and smoke, as well as caramel and grain, and with a long smoky finish. Surprisingly nice.

Smoke aroma. Very peaty low sweeterness. Appearence little foggy. Smells like a whisky but tastes like a beer.

vipinvelp (2446) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2013
Clear light copper yellow with small white foam ring. Arom is dominated by smokey charcoal. Taste is quite smokey, but still very fresh. Aftertaste is lasting, nice bitter. (Velp 201307)

A smoked good beer. Different from what I expected. A beer that seems a whisky. Good for reading drinking...

bhensonb (11685) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle from the Utobeer stall in Borough Market. Pours light copper with a slight white head. Aroma is peat, but not at a Paradox level. Flavor is very smoky/peaty and it’s difficult to get much else out of it. Great ale for a smoke fix.

Borresteijn (5009) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2013
50cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of peat, whisky malts, hint of earth, hint of lager-like notes. Flavour is light-sweet peat, minerals, light sweet malts, bitter and peaty finish. Very watery, still tasty enough because of the peat, but no depth at all.
