"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

McTapps (4993) - 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 (199) - 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.

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.

500ml bottle at home. Appearance: clear ambe, with a medium, off-white head. Aroma: smoked ham, leather Taste: smoke, ham in, leather and the finish is quite bitter and harsh aftertaste. thin body, average carbonation. Aroma is o a good rauchbier, but the problem is the quite harsh inish.

Foffern (1360) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber colour with a medium, off-white head. Aroma of smoke, meat, wood and leather. Whisky in the background. Nice! More smoke in the flavour along with wood, leather and a harsh and dry bitter aftertaste. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Has a wonderful rauchbier-like aroma but the taste is unbalanced and quite bitter.
