La "Salty Dog" è una variazione della "Dudes" la quale, attraverso passaggio in botti di Whisky torbato (in porzione Caol Ila), aquisisce le nobili caratteristiche del legno. I caratteri distintivi sono il classico torbato del whisky di Islay, ed in questo caso la nota distintiva è il sapore del mare dovuto dal fatto che la distilleria in questione è sulla baia e le botti vengono impregnate dagli aromi della baia e dal salmastro. Birra unica nel suo genere e di grande classe. Da gustare a piccoli sorsi come birra da meditazione.

Editor’s translation. Salty Dog is a version of Dudes that has been aged in casks of Caol Ila whiskey, hence taking from the barrel the smoke and salty character.

Imagine you woke up after a party and tipped all the dregs of all the leftover drinks into a glass, beer, lager, whisky, coke, everything, it will look and taste like this.

[9/26/14] Bottle sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2014 in Bodegraven. Dark reddish brown. Boozy aroma, malty, with cookies, caramel and quite a bit of smoked whiskey. Sweet boozy flavor with smoked whiskey, malt, caramel, nutty notes and some fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Too boozy.

Abio (1628) - Waasland, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
I expected this one to be barrely drinkeable for me, but it was almost enjoyable. Booze, wood, peat and roastiness. The wood and booze was good...

Palme (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2014
Sampled from a 0.375l bottle @ Haandfest 2014. Peat! Peat peat peat! Salted peanuts also detected here. Malty caramel. Lots of aroma, but the PEaT! is overwhelming all the other aromas here. Lots of flavor. A ton of warming whisky flavors here. Quite flavorful actually and more nuanced than the one-direction aroma. Concentrated sticky and thick in the mouth and it’s only prickling on the bubbles. Snickers lingering chocolate fudge tail. 24.05.2014
