"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.

Palme (3637) - Bergen, - OCT 7, 2012
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

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 (450) - - 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.

kermis (9070) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2016
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 (113) - 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.

pityu (483) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle - Clear light amber color, small white head with poor retention. Smoky aroma with some roasted malts. Taste is mostly sweet malty with too offensiv smoke character. I think, on a blind tasting i would mistake it as a rauchbier from Bamberg. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture, smoky finish. Not really good, but it is not so bad if you dont except whiskey flavours and aromas.

Bottle 0.5L. Clear, deep golden body with an average, frothy, white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Moderate malty (roasted) aroma with evident smokey character. Light-to-moderate sweet flavour with light-to-moderate bitterness in the finish. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; soft carbonation.

Erzengel (7130) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2015
Old rating, best before 20 June 12. Nice intense smoky nose. The beer starts with an extreme but great peated aroma, great intense smoked malts on a smooth but a bit sweetish body. Moderate bitterness, the smoke is great, the beer is moderate. Ok but very interesting stuff!

tdtm82 (1699) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2015
Bottle, present from Clayfiish which I’ve finally got around to opening. Thanks, mate! Poured into EurHop! glass. Nice white lacing. Carbonation is really lacking. Golden appearance. Huge Ardbeg whiskey and peated malt aroma as well as TCP. A tad hot too. Taste is citrus, lemons, Ardbeg, some iodine, TCP, some soft biscuity malt, some toffee crisp biscuits, some caramel. Not particularly amazing but interesting for sure!
