"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.

czar (3790) - Québec, Quebec, - NOV 12, 2012
pours almost clear very pale golden with a very small white cap, little retention, no lacing. aroma is peat and weak lightly sugary malts with a hint of herbal blandness. taste is about the same. no complexity. aggressive carbonation, light body - watery, short but present grassy-citrusy finish. overall: nice peated malt, the rest is less than meh.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of peat, iodine, some malt and fruitiness. Flavor is sweet and malty with some fruitiness and peat. Medium body, average carbonation.

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

03.04.2014, 0,5l bottle @ home:
Small bubbly shoerlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, peated malts, leather, caramel, sugar, hay, butterscotch. Taste is slightly dry, peated malts, hay, grass, leather, oak, caramel. Medium bitterness, watery mouthfeel. Pretty boring!

mike_77 (2735) - 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 (5371) - 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 (414) - 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

tricksta_p (634) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
Clear amber/golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of malts, peat, oak, smoke. Flavour is similar, smoked ham and peat sweetness. This is a fair enough brew, but when it comes to beer meets whiskey, I much prefer a good barrel aged Imperial Stout.

Vighals (770) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2014
Lys gulbrun i fargen klar med lite hvitt skum. Røkt lukt/ whiskylukt. Lett bitter og røkt litt søt smak. Kort ettersmak, medium kullsyre.

Hazy golden color, small white head, average carbonation. Strong aroma of smoke and whiskey. Very peculiar beer. I had trouble drinking it though.

Iznogud (380) - CROATIA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle 500 ml from Kuca piva, Zagreb. Very unusual beer, it had weird petroleum or gasoline aroma (also could be leather). I’m not sure if there was something wrong with the bottle.
