"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.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a slightly hazy orange-golden body with a medium creamy white head. Aroma is heavy peat and whisky tones, pale malts and cured meat. Taste is pale malts and whiskey/tar-ish notes, hints of nuts and muted caramel in the back. A bit watery palate, which doesn’t stand up to the peat-and-whisky assault offered by both aroma and taste. Not too bad, still.

The beer pours a translucent red-tinged gold colour with a thin tan head. The aroma is smoked malt, whisky, and grains. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is smoked malt, with some sweetness to balance it out (and fails).

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2012
(Bottle, Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon, London, 20 Nov 2012) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with smoke, apricots, citric hops and a touch of peat. Smoky, fruity taste with notes of apricots, orange peel and smoke. A certain bitterness shines through in the finish. Medium body, with some sweetness. Different, and quite decent.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagadn’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours hazy amber with white ring. Honey and peat aroma, peat, phenol, a hint of fruit in the mouth. Medium body, strong peaty aftertaste. Tasty!

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle: Poured a light clear copper color ale with a large foamy head with average retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of dry malty notes and powerful peat notes is quite something. Taste is overpowered by peat malt notes with some dry caramel malt also discernable. Body is pretty light with good carbonation. I love peat malt but this is quite overpowering and there would be advantage to have a bit of residual sugar to balance out the peat. Interesting experiment but not something I would seek again.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden beer with a very small head that dissipates quick. Aroma has peat, some smoke and overall heavily peated Scotch whisky. Beautifull. Flavour is very malty, peaty and has a smokey aftertaste.. Bit sour, almost tart like finish, but very peaty... perhaps too much but I love peat in my whisky’s and I love it in my beers.. Lovely brew...

beerandbeyond (656) - ISRAEL - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle sample. Slightly hazy golden color with a minimal head. Aromas of burned rubber, pretty intense peat, some plastic and no hops. Smokey flavors, low bitterness, caramel malts and whiskey notes. Crisp, light-med bodied, dry, long finish. Strange and interesting.

solidfunk (3585) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Definitely smell the peated malt in this - more than anything. A powerful aroma that stays with you all the way through the beer and makes hell of any other aromas or tastes. At the same time, it also tastes too much like peat moss and it’s not something I generally like to eat. Pours light orange with decent head and lacing. Not sure where the whiskey comes into this. Bottle.

cfrancis (2249) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
This is a mess. Pours a thin piss yellow with a small white ring and haze. Aroma is smoke and a slight whiskey sweetness. Taste is surprisingly peat smoke that overpowers the whiskey sweetness that is hard to pick out. I had high hopes for this with the name beer with whiskey. Smokey overtones is an understatement. This is a smoked beer. Scotch ale is pretty much undetectable.,
