"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.

probstblueribbon (3352) - Nepean, Ontario, - FEB 1, 2013
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass. 13OC12.

App.: Clear deep golden/light amber with a moderate white froth. Aroma: Fairly strong peaty smoke, a little biscuit and fruitiness, iodine and brine, like a so-so ale with a shot of big Islay Scotch in it. Palate: Medium body, fairly aggressive effervescence. Flav.: Lots of peat smoke with insufficient malt support, biscuits, lightly fruity; dry with minimal bitterness and a strong peat smoke finish.

Way too much peat, Pete!

No head, color amber gold like apple juice. A bit dissapointed for the lack of smokey flavour. Nose caramel barley not much hop. Taste a bit sour some hoppy biterness, a hint of whisky not much but good enough. Still the best whisky beer I had so far.

azzie (510) - - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle 0.5l from Konzum supermarket in Pula. Clear dark golden liquid with fluffy off white head. Medium body and carbonation. A hint of smoke in aroma. Taste is nice and balanced at the beginning, long aftertaste with a kick of smoke and sourness. Not bad.

Kauge (846) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle at Frank in Tallinn (€ 4). Nearly no head despite the reckless pour. Rather horrible peaty and grainy on the nose - it’s like some cheap-ass makeshift of a whisky. Tastes disgusting. Skunky bitter, caramelly, peaty. Has this boozy effect without actually being boozy... I love smoked beers. I adore a good whisky. But this here is among the worst things I’ve had the chance of consuming in a long time. Ugh.

fajry (1181) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 30, 2015
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 (3362) - 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.

McTapps (5934) - 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.
