"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 (2892) - 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!

Jimthechap (1606) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 24, 2014
As amber as amber comes with a persistent head of cream coloured foam. Some carbonation evident and excellent clarity. The aroma is of phenolicy bonfire-like peat. An aroma I have been in love with ever since I gained my black belt in whisky including marinading myself in Islay single malts. However, my impression is one of dustier grain silo than of bonfire, charry earth or medicinal herbaceous smokiness. This was a similar character in Yeastie Boys XeRReX but it was on a much more massive scale in that one. Anyway, the flavour was of that kind of peat with amber orchard malts that dried nicely and... well I was going to write about a finish, but that hasn’t happened yet and is unlikely to any time soon given the full flush of flavour currently on my palate minutes after.

lacks a little fullness but an interesting smokebeer with lots of peat smoke.

rikstar (718) - 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 (4134) - 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.
