2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Proof. Hazy amber pour with a small white head. Heavy peaty smoke aroma with mild astringency. A bit a malt sweetness on the tip of the tongue fading into a lot a peaty smoke with no real finish. Too much and not well put together.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [11.2oz]. Pours a cloudy gold with a huge fluffy white head. Minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma is all peat -- really, it’s just peat. Flavour is all peat all the time along with maybe some fruit and malt in there. Medium bodied. Funny story, when I popped the cap my dog instantly looked up, started sniffing the air and proceeded to get up and go nuts and sniff the air continuously. I figured out it smells just like the Denta Sticks we give him. An interesting beer for sure, I liked it.

Odore di torba che si conferma poi in bocca. Lascia un gusto affumicato che fa innamorare.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Holy cow, I wish somebody had warned me about this one. But everyone made fun of me after I ordered it. Pire peat and smoke, through and through. And the bar I’m at can’t take food orders now because they’re busy and the kitchen is stessed out. So I’m stuck with this one. Oh well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 0,50L. Hazy and fraught yellow clear color, optimal bubbly presence and great creamy foamy head of lond duration and volume. Unusual smoked nose, little spiced and crisp; notes of smoked cheese, malty, honey. Fresh start in mouth, discreet alcoholic impact and realy prickly and lively taste. Very arid and bitter end with notes of ash and roast wood. Irregular but at the same time palatable.
