2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Beer basically drainpoured itself when it shot out of the glass. Nose is almost purely smoke and medicine. Taste is medicinal with heavy smoked malt, yeast and light lemon. Light bodied.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Bangers and Lace. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is intense peat that imparts heavy earthy smoke, leather and a hint of bandaid. Flavor has heavy peat that gives a earthy, bog peat note with underlying leather, ashtray and smoked meats. A bit overwhelming.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Certainly a really a beer that I’ll remember. The aroma is a blast of smoked malt notes which pretty much cover everything else. I am a big fan of peated whiskey (luckily, or I would not have survived this one), so I enjoyed it a lot, but it certainly is rather extreme.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazed golden blonde ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, suoer smokey malt with wood extract, molasses, phenolics, intense. In mouth, a smooth smoked up malt with wood extracts, phenols, intense yet restrained, pleasant, would be good with ham. On tap at Ginger Man NYC, Sept 21, 2012.

Works great as a concept. But the smokey character is simply to much, thius it is to unrefined. It’s simply to hard distinguishing flavours other than peated malts.
The colour is great though!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a lively golden color with a four finger rocky foam head that sticks and laces like a champ. On the nose woooohhh. Scotish peat malt, smoked ham, cedar, wet oak and touches of vanilla bean. A very similar palate with a more refreshing mid to late profile than expected but still a bit to much campfire smokiness to really get me excited. In fact was more excited a friend showed up a sip into and I slipped a third of the brew into his glass to lighten my load. Worth trying and very amped up palate that would be lethal with the perfect salty briny pairing but alone a bit overwhelming in the flavor department.

Aroma is pure scotch whisky. The flavor is, sorry, I really don’t like scotch, I can’t rate this any higher.
