"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.

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.

Holmen1 (3409) - 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 (1231) - 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.

jfb (4559) - Freising, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2013
(bottle) pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of heavy ash and campfire smoke, slightly medicinal, with a hint of earth, vanilla and chilli peppers. flavour is mostly the same, with notes of smoked ham, chestnuts, black pepper and a bitter finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Grumbo (858) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2013
Bottle from Woodbridge Wine Company. Pours and mid orange yellow colour, minimal head, soon disappearing. Too strong for my liking on the smoke/peat and the whiskey aspect didn’t work for me.

Clear gold beer, thin white head. Crispy light palate. Smoky whisky! Big time! Totally dominates. A little pale malt and minerals. Crisp finish. Way too much peat!

probstblueribbon (3277) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass. 13OC12.

App.: Clear deep golden/light amber with a moderate white froth. Aroma: Fairly strong peaty smoke, a little biscuit and fruitiness, iodine and brine, like a so-so ale with a shot of big Islay Scotch in it. Palate: Medium body, fairly aggressive effervescence. Flav.: Lots of peat smoke with insufficient malt support, biscuits, lightly fruity; dry with minimal bitterness and a strong peat smoke finish.

Way too much peat, Pete!
