Keg at BD Sheps Bush. It pours clear red-brown with a small beige head. The nose is rich, medicinal, rich smoke, oily, jammy berry, plum, blackcurrant, cola cubes and wood. The taste is bitter, wood, earth, pepper, bitter-sweet, medicinal, toasty, spice, liquorice, xmas cake, dried fruits, smoke with a warming, lightly spiced finish. Med-full body and fine, prickly carbonation. Crazy stuff, bit I kind of like it.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog. Dark orange, hazy, small ring of white head. Aroma is TCP, smoke. Body is medium, soft carbonation, pretty smooth. Taste is smoke, peated whiskey, some light fruit. Barman was trying to persuade me this was rum BA, but clearly mixing up his beers. Peat bomb. Pretty decent in small amounts.

Keg at BD Shep’s. Pours clear amber-gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds a bit of smoke, some bread, orange rind. Medium sweet flavor with some oily hops, strong peat, grassy bitterness, citrus rind. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Somewhat chewy. Warming finish with some tropical fruits, a hit of boozy spice, more peat, drying wood. Somewhat unbalanced. OK.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Hanging Bat, Edinburgh - 08/12/12.
Hazed dark amber with a thin off white head, good lacing ensues.
Nose is light soap, TCP, faint whisky.
Taste is a massive whisky hit, wood, booze, sugars, rausch, medicinal notes.
Full bodied, soft carbonation, smokey boozey finish.
Ok stuff but a bit overpowering on the whisky front - needs a little attention to the overall balance to make it a great beer.

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Dark copper red pour (it’s not indigo. Face it.) with a very thin head that fades. Absolutely huge iodine Islay peat nose, just a little bit of floral cardamom/liquorice lurking underneath, but it’s all about the peat. Slightly sweet floral front, lightest smoke, surprisingly peachy, liquorice, light sherbet? Big medicinal peat smoke instantly hits you too, possibly a bit too much of the whisky actually. But it’s certainly fascinating, and the peat is an interesting choice to match with the other flavours. Slight alcohol burn and a hint of tannic barrel wood on the finish. Interesting.
