That’s smokey. Sensory overload really. If you like smoked meat then this beer is for you. I would not suggest eating with this beer.

330ml bottle from Oak Barrel, Sydney. Pale golden pour with a white head. Prominent smoky nose with peat and medinical notes that fortunately is not reflected too much on the tongue which is surprisingly mild comparatively, although smoky bacon and woody elements are still there to be enjoyed. Finishes dry with a subtle lingering smokiness. This is not a style I naturally warm to but this is one of the better smoked beers I have tasted.

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

330ml bottle. Pours yellow with almost no head. Smells like a sweet smoky scotch that doesn’t know it’s actually beer. Lots of peat in the taste as well. Rather an experimental beer than anything else though.

Hazey dark straw colour with thin white head. Peaty aroma. Aged whiskey giving slight tangy flavour which is difficult to describe.

cloudy light orange,solid head/lacing.
I fucking sniffed it,my bad and it was spearmint/evergreen/bandaid smoked bugspray with campfire with some slight sweet fruit.
Taste is some sweet malt,with weird smoked tones like someone just threw their whole campsite food and tents into the campfire and bbqed it. Finish is tobacco ash linger Like a weird night where you accidentally drank a cig but in a can of beer weird... but better.
If you camp and smell your clothes the next day, this is what it tastes like in your mouth after drinking it for a while.

Bottle shared by ajax25g. Pours lightly hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy peat, pear esters, earthy hops. Flavor is medicinal phenols and smoke, peat, pear esters, light malt and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL. Pours a clear straw with white bubbles, no head. Nose is ridiculous Islay single malt Scotch style with apple pie, mega peat, chamomile, iodine. Taste is way overpowering though with no body to match the intensity. Comes across as too chemical with turpentine and formaldehyde, soil, and ash. Headache inducing.

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

330ml bottle. Wow it took a while to work my way through this one. Murky hazy amber colour and the look of this beer does nothing to prepare you for the full on big smokey aroma, wet and peaty like mud but not in an unpleasant way. The flavour is like you licked an ashtray or just smoked a packet of cigarettes. Certainly has attitude.
