"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.

500ml bottle - decants a lightly hazed honey-gold ale with a small bit sticky cap that lasts modeately and laces the glass. Aroma is smokey-musty with grainy undertones - like a Bamberg rauchbier but more restrained. Meduim body, slick mouth feel. Ups front this ale has a wonderful 3way balance between the peat smoke, malt and resiny hops - nothing overpowers anything else, mid palate these 3 flavour form a dulcet amalgam mid palate - it then goes on to a fast finish with hop resins and light astringecy from the smoke riding just over the malt- lingering smokey bittering. All in all a very good smoked beer which is not too over powering to have 2 or so. But where this beer really shines is when paired up with sronger tasting cheeses and foods like blue cheese or old cheddar or mutton stew - first rate as a food pairing brew.

Fules (670) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 1, 2016
Kicsi, gyorsan apadó, de vékonyan megmaradó hab, kissé homályos borostyán szín. Malátás, enyhén whisky-s illatok. Malátás alap, enyhe keserű, és minden egyebet elnyomó füstös-hordós, kissé olajos whisky íz. Utóíze a korty folytatása. Testes, kellemes ital.

Flaske 0,33 liter, en ganske udemćrket whisky řl, god smag og god aroma, er lidt overrasket over dens gode eftersmag.

I_LUV_BEER (144) - - APR 25, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear golden colour with not much of a head. Aroma is malts and bread with faint whisky notes. Taste is very balanced with not much of anything, just some pleasant whisky notes. Very smooth and easy to drink beer. I would regard it more as a sessional ale though despite the ABV.

AleRider78 (588) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Poured a golden colour. Huge foamy bubbly head. Mild carbonation. Has a sorta ashtray/burnt like aroma, not very appealing. Weird smokey like flavour, most likely from being aged in whisky cask (right?) Odd mixture and to me doesn’t seem to be blending well. Not my fave St. Peters brew for sure. Still drinkable, but will not be trying again.

Bottle at THT. Clear dark amber with small off white head. Sour vegetables, some caramel, grass, light spices. Light sweet with very nasty chemical bitter finish. Medium bodied with slick feel. Yuck.

Bottle shared at THT, thanks! Clear amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of peat, big woody notes, toffee and nutty aspects. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation.

nephirem (171) - CROATIA - FEB 20, 2016
Pours clear reddish orange color with small and creamy white head. Smell is a bit smoked, whisky with some hops in the background. Medium body with soft carbonation. Texture is watery at first, turning into creamy when left on the tongue a bit. Taste is mostly bitter with some sourness to it. Aroma falls between fruity and boozy, combination of malts, hops and citrus fruits with whisky presence in the background. Finish is dry and bitter, followed by smoked but slightly metallic aftertaste which does spoil this one for me a bit. Overall, decent beer. Nothing outstanding but interesting for a change.
