2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
