"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.

Fľaša. Zlatá farba, biela pena. Vôňa sladová, jemne oriešková a medová. V chuti sladová sladkosť. Jemne karamel a ovocné tóny. Najmä však zľahka nadymovaná chuť. Stredé telo, vyššia nasýtenosť.

Gurthnar (2926) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 3, 2015
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Simple malty honeyish aroma, light ambiguous British hops. Then peat comes out. Clear golden to orange colour. Taste is mostly interesting by the peat, which is moderate intensity. Simple, but the peat needs more complex malt bill to accompany it IMO. Still good.

Bottle from Seoul plaza, Bratislava. Golden color with minimal white head. Aroma of peated malt, smoke, whiskey. Sweet malty taste with whiskey, smoke, caramel, wood. Pleasant beer.

McTapps (5553) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle from Beer - Bier in Düsseldorf. The beer has got a clear deep brown colour with a low head and medium body. Aroma of peat, smoke and acid smoke. Taste of big and heavy smoke, smoked cheese, bread and peat. Smokey-peaty finish. Not my kind of beer.

There are beers out there being smokey and...well...drinkable. Some of them are even quaffy and you choose to drink a second one because it kept you warm and made you drunk. THIS ONE here is smokey, bitter and every sip tell´s me:"Stop drinking that one." It indeed is disgusting. I cannot even describe what´s most annoying about that one. The smoke, the skunk, that unbalanced and badly suprising bitterness ? Does not matter.

Hrc_Cro (244) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 9, 2015
0.5l bottle. Clear light orange color with almost no foam. Aroma of smoked ham, wood, leather and fruits. Taste is nicely bitter with smokey flavor that stays for a while. Nice beer, but not that special.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose. Poured a clear copper, with a thin white head. Big aroma of peaty whisky, iodine and sweet malts. Some smoky notes in the flavour, with dried fruit and straw. Finish was earthy, with light vanilla and more peat.

Bottle; pours cloudy amber with a thin off white head; aroma smoky with malt and hints of wood and caramel; taste is slightly sweet with smoke, wood, and malt; has a dry bitter finish; a little smokier than I expected but not overpowering; decent beer
