"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

Nice bottle but without any information about the malts, hops and drinktemperature. Clear amber beer with a very small cream-colored head, smell is light sweet and after vanilla, flat carbonation, thin texture, bitter, long finish and very bitter, (I have 0.5l bottle with best-before 20.07.2017)

Clear amber color. Medium carbonation. Lots of smoke, toffee, caramel, fruity British yeast character, little-to-no hop aroma. Has a bitter smokey flavor, malty start, but finishes completely dry. Has some fruity tones in there too. Can be a bit too harsh. I actually hated it on first taste, but it grew on me. Tastes like a good british bitter with some smoke added. Not bad.

Blueshawk (387) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- helle bernsteingelbe Farbe mit geringer Schaumbildung - leicht würzige – aber leider etwas undefinierbare – Aromen - auch geschmacklich bleibt das Ganze irgendwie indifferent, nicht fassbar und ohne eigenen Charakter - auch der Abgang bleibt geschmacklich nicht fassbar und wassrig Fazit: Seltsames Gebräu

Aroma of caramel. malt,bread, grass and a hint of smoke and fruits. Amber with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Overall a nice ale with a plesant smokey finish.

Fules (827) - 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.

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 (682) - 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.
