3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Pours light copper, with cream head. Faint aroma - creamy and suggestive of flavors to come. Taste and palate are the things. The peated malt is nicely done - others I’ve had are over top - this one is clearly present but not overwhelming, nicely integrated. Toasty, creamy, chewy, nice mouth feel, but not heavy. Overall, solid, drinkable, a sipping ale, after dinner in front of the fire beer. Whisky drinkers will enjoy this one
C-. Pours a clear brown color with khaki head. Interesting flavor. Not getting the bacon flavor. Kinda tart. ozzy70 (1334) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 10, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Pour was copper, off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, ash, caramel. Taste is bittersweet, some smoke, caramel. shrubber85 (11708) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle. Peaty scotch whisky, toffee malt, yeast, and herbal hay aroma. Dark amber with minimal head. Moderately sweet scotch whisky, toffee malt, and mildly bitter hay flavor Nice body. Pretty boozy. Patrickctenchi (6810) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 11, 2016

Caramel malt, earth, peat scent.

Pretty good. weihenweizen (4209) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2016

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2016 Bottle poured into an English pint. Caramel color and a huge cream colored head with little lacing to speak of. A whole lot of caramel malt, cigar humidor, and an earthy note as well. Taste is caramel malts, charred, and woody. A very dry finish and smoky aftertaste. Body is little watery and carbonation is low. This is an interesting one. It?s kind of like an amber with a lot of extra character. Not really something I?d want to drink more than one of. euniceradio (563) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2016
UPDATED: APR 1, 2016 On tap to pint. Pours cloudy iced tea, no head except for a soapy swirling. Aroma of malted grains and caramel. Aroma is faint with no head. Taste of scotch whiskey, some caramel, tobacco, juicy fruit and orchard fruit. Lots of apple. Finish is dry and semi-bitter. I usually don?t like smoked peat but thus brew is complex and interesting. One pint is a fun journey. The appearance is off-putting. drpimento (3815) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Kind of an odd appearance with a small head & a dirty dishwater color. Has a real odd finish. Not for me. pkbites (1006) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle. Cola brown/dark amber pour is quite lovely. Artificial smoke flavor sucks. I don’t like it at all!!! It overpowered anything even remotely nice about this. Light beer mouth feel, and light smokey aftertaste would have been alright if I imagined the artificial house fire smell and flavor weren’t there. Smelled and tasted like Resinol Ointment Salve (look it up, Junior!) Nope. Avoid! hfmejias (1297) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2015
On tap at the brewery (Marshall, MN). Copper in color, clear, small off white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of grain, some smoke and some scotch. Taste is scotch, smoked malts and grain, quite boozy. Good beer very enjoyable.
