"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.

Marduk (3200) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 26, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear golden color. Tiny head, stays. Massive smokiness and peat, but also some leather in aroma. Peat, smokiness, malty, sweet, mildly ashy flavor. Nicely balanced and quite easy to drink.

FatPhil (9817) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Lovely soft smoky whisky aroma, pure guilty pleasure. Typical paleish beery colour, large tight head. Slightly watery palate, crisp carbonation. Touch wooly in the taste, as it warms it fills out and is nicely full and malty. Dry woody smoky bitterness builds up too. Dry finish, whisky. Quite simple, but very tasty.

jercraigs (8153) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
2013-04-18. Crisp golden body, nice white head. Really strong aroma of peaty iodine. Flavour is similarly powerful peat smoke. Interesting notes of malt and pleasant bitterness in the finish but each new sip brings another wave of intense peaty smoke. Average bodied palate. Intense, not at all to my tastes. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

Peaty smell, nice for a whisky lover like me. Some caramel and sweetness. Nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bhensonb (11786) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle from Utobeer Market Stall in Borough Market. Pours light copper with a slight white head that was quite transient. Definite smoke aroma. Med body. Flavor is mostly peat. Hints of caramel. Perhaps a little bitter, but it’s really peat in the finish.

Christian (11380) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 13, 2013
Golden with a lasting white head. Aroma of dominated by peat smoke with bready malt. Sweeetish malty flavour with lots of peat smoke and little else

artyom (593) - Osijek, CROATIA - APR 13, 2013
0,5l bottle. Whiskey color. Almost no head. Aroma is mostly peated malt. Taste is peated malt, some whiskey and smoke, similar to smoked ham. Medium bitterness. Very interesting and tasty combination.

PeatyPete (426) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Whisky beer. Nose: sweet malty smoke. Taste soft bitter with a smoky aftertaste that lingers. Almost no foam.

Holmen1 (3022) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff nov-11: iflg Sigmund så var det som å sleike bunnen av et nettopp tømt askebeger. Under tivl verdt et nytt forsøk (min aversjon mot røykmalt tatt i betraktning). Men jeg liker jo Lagavullin...

tmrmwel (1108) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle. Pours nice clear amber, with an airy head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, toffee, peat and oak barrels. Full body with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with burned malt and whisky notes, as well as some butter scotch and notes of diacetyl with a smokey finish.
