Brewed to encapsulate the flavours of mezcal, this bright golden beer smoulders with smoky notes, as well as intense fruit character. A strong ale brewed with smoked malt and smoked agave syrup, aged in both Islay and Speyside casks, some loaded with Sal de Gusano.

The resultant barrel-aged beer swings wildly between the intense Islay notes, crackling with peat smoke and toasted marshmallow, and the rich, fruity Speyside bringing peach, apricot and mango.

Bottle from surething_ii. Disappointment. Aroma of hospital. Pale amber colour, small head. Weird taste, rather sweet, some fruits, very strong taste of alcohol. It is unique, but I don't like it.

Bottle from Pivotéka Nitra. This won't be one of my favorites. Smells like a medicine, tastes like if you are licking walls of hospital. Far from impressive.

kajser27 (2087) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 29, 2017
Bit unclear, golden colored, medium off white head. Aroma is of strong peat, smoke, some caramel, slight oak and vanilla, some fruity notes. Taste is medium to very sweet caramel and malt, strong peat, some smoke and bit of smoked meat, bit of oaky vanilla, light fruity notes, medium- bitterness, alcohol and warmth. Full- bodied, soft carbonation, oily to sticky. Aged for over a year and a half, alcohol is not as aggressive now but it's mostly about peat, although there is some depth to it. (bottle)

Pours golden with virtually no head. The nose to me smelt like boiled sweets, burnt sugar and toasted oak barrels. Taste has a syrupy tequila taste with a heavy smoky peaty finish like a good cask malt whisky. There's some hoppy IPA flavours, but they are hidden.

Keg at Brewdog, Oxford, Sunday 29th October 2017 prior to going to a gig at The Bullingdon by Jane Weaver. Pours hazy gold with a slim white head. Lots of peat on the nose, the barrel ageing and abv are very apparent here. Strong beer, too much peat, germoline here for me so much so that I went off this instantly. A5 A3 T4 P3 Ov9 2.4

Gold/ copper with a solid white head. Aroma is peated nuts, malt, hop. High alcohol, vanilla, caramel, and red fruit on the body. Too much alcohol

ANZUShophunter (655) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 Bottle (online from Beer Cartel) in Belgian Ale glass. Notes of smoke from the nose through to the palate. Unique among ASA's I've sampled but not really my cup of tea.

On tap @ Brewdog Ellon A great beer. A nice whisky tastelike. Surprisingly complex but balanced

dorain (714) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 8, 2017
Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-10 getrunken. Erinnert mich sehr an schottische gemälzte Gerste. Gefährlich süffig, süßlich und mit etwas Frucht.
