"Whisky Beer"
A superb balanced beer with ’smokey’ overtones from peated malt. With a measure of English Whisky from St. George’s Distillery in Norfolk, it is rich in flavour.

Tasted and smelled very much of iron. Horrible. Had to hold my breath while drinking. Won’t have this again.

mike_77 (3128) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2014
Hazy blond colour with lots of left over yeast in the bottom of the glass. Strong smokey, peaty aroma. A bit salty. There’s a flavour of dry, hoppy beer with salty, smokey, meaty taste. Some sweeter, softer malt flavours come through in the finish. Lots of flavour in beer of only 4.8%.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
[5232-20130418] 500mL bottle. Whiskey barrel peat aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Smoked wood peat flavour has a long charred peat aftertaste. Medium-full body. Overpoweringly smoky peat everywhere. My husband is super awesome and totally didn’t write this part himself. (Ahem!) (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1

Sissio (604) - Orsenigo, ITALY - FEB 23, 2014
nice clear light copper, minimal white head whiskylike aroma, some smokiness, roasted malts, caramel Aroma is better than taste. Too much bitterness due to peatyness, some caramel, malts all covered by bitterness
