The head is ok, the body gold-orange. It smells smoky-crazy, hoppy-aromatic, malty. The taste is smoky-very smoky, smoked fish, wood-bacon, alcoholic-creamy. Strange, strong and amazing! 3.8

Bottle BBE: Jan ’16. Well-chilled. Pours cloudy golden with floaters and a small, tight white head with some patchiness. Extremely high intensity aromas of peat smoke. Highly medicinal, like laphroaig, with a strong meaty smell. Some citrus hops just about make themselves heard through the smoke. Pungent. This slightly dulls the taste buds, but there is a perceptible sweetness and a medium bitterness. There is some body, maybe medium, and a dry woody texture. Carbonation is bang on, about average, and not surprisingly the peat smoke lingers in the finish. Overall this is obviously pretty one-dimensional, but it’s a worthwhile experiment and actually an enjoyable beer.

This beer smells like a dirty soi in Bangkok, with a hint of Laphroaig. Although past smell, it is pure SUCCESS.

Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very hazy gold with a creamy off-white head. Wow. The aroma is very, very smoked malt. Med body or better. Flavor is quite smoked malt. I think there’s some hop bitter in this. But it’s godawfully smoke. Like BrewDog went to NZ. Crazy stuff!

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.

Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, KL. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is heady, rich, peaty, earth, medicinal, mild acidity and big smoky laphroaig action. The taste is bitter, medicinal, earthy, smoked peat, toast, grain and dough with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation carbonation. As a fan of pleated whisky the nose blew me away, taste wasn’t bad either. Very good.
