"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 shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a light blurry honey-golden body with a small light bubbly and sidesticking white head. Smells definitely smoky, with peat and sweet ham. Wet gunpowder moshed between two rocks and added black leather. A strange description, but yeah. It has a really thin and light mouthfeel with a soft to average carbonation level. Peated smoky flavors. It really lack some mouthfeel this one. There is also a faint fruity hint hidden behind all that peated woody smoke, but more subtle. Subtle peaches actually. Ends more watery and quite blend. Peat all the way, but I wish it had a bit more body to follow up all that smoke. 24.09.2012

rikstar (656) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2014
0,5l fles van speciaalbierpakket.nl. Amberkleurig met een zeer bescheiden schuimkraag. Geur is gerookte mout met een klein beetje een zoetzuur fruittoontje. In de smaak ook overheersend de rook met op de achtergrond iets van appel. Body is licht nasmaak blijft wel lekker hangen. Erg lekker rook bier. James dat het zo doods het flesje uit kwam.

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Langnes. Mørk gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum med kniplingslacing. Skummet daler sakte. Litt tung whiskyaroma. Smaken er røkt torv - på grensen til fjøs. Lite annet. Ikke helt vellykket.

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

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%.
