3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unlike any other beer Iíve tried and not at all what I expected. The nose is quite awful really but I donít think itís meant to be sniffed. Upon drinking I was greeted with a mouthful of smokey dirt. It reminded me of the burnt bits left in the pan after roasting a chicken. If you havenít experienced peat before this probably isnít a good start as itís quite unforgiving. If youíre a fan of peat then youíll love this beer. Itís ironically quite light in colour.

Bottle; Ale House; Chelmsford. 21st March 2015
Iodine aroma, peat, TSP. Golden pilsner base. Very clean. Really interesting use of whisky casks. Finish is alcohol and fruits. Itís fascinating. Just not a fan of this but it is well-made.

Big peat smoke aroma that to me is like band aids. Flavor redeems things with a more scotch whiskey character.

330ml bottle. Pours yellow with almost no head. Smells like a sweet smoky scotch that doesnít know itís actually beer. Lots of peat in the taste as well. Rather an experimental beer than anything else though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is all Islay, with tons of smokey whiskey. Flavour is intense, with nothing but smoky Islay. What a monolithic beer. Not exactly good, but a cool beer to try.

Yes, itís peaty... hello?! Easier with a blocked nose, like mine, but still... Perfectly drinkable, and I like the unique, smoky after-taste, so there.

Bottle share. Thanks Amanda! Cloudy yellow. Aroma is earthy peat, straw, honey. Taste is sweet. A bit thin but really interesting and great aroma.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle - Sweet peat, smoke and BBQ. Clear gold with a decent white head. Just like it smells, lovely peat, a total smoke bomb. Love it long time.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tastes like someone dropped an Islay malt in a lager. Briny, heavy peat flavour but with thin texture. Smells like stale hobo sweat, like fermenting body odour. Points awarded for creativity and experimentation but it?s challenging to get through a bottle. Still worth a try.
