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.

KØLF 240217. Golden color with an off-white head. Aroma is peat, malt, hop. Flavor is alcohol, peat, malt, hop, vanilla, caramel, fruit. Too boozy beer.

martjoobolut (4229) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2017
Tap at brewdog. Pours dark orange. Aroma is smoke, peat, sweetness, booze. Flavor is sweet and bitter, peat, ash, sugar, malt, fruits, booze. Finish is smoke and sugar with some booze. Overall: drinkable, but the booze+peat+sugar combo isn’t my favorite..

sonofian (103) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Peaty amber brew that tastes of the barrels it was aged in. Big whiskey nose cleanse and throat scratch. Oddly not too overbearing, just on the right side of balance.

Rask0lnikov (1257) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2017
On tap at Brewdog Bar. Pours golden yellow colour. Thin white head. Peat, notes of whisky, smoke in the aroma. Peat, smoke, notes of caramel, slight notes of alcochol. Peat, whiskey in the aftertaste. Woody notes, hints of vanilla. Rather medium bodied, quite smoky, moderately carbonated brew.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2017 Tap (Brewdog, Tallinn) (7+:4:7-:4-:14+=3.6)
Lovely rich chewy tarry smoky aroma, some sausage, some woodiness, sweetish but dryish. Bright orange, small tight off-white head settles to a ring. Nice full palate, present, but not over-full - exactly right for this strength/type of beer. Carbonation lightens it nicely. Drier smoky taste, again quite tarry, peaty and woody. Alcohol totally covered - this goes down very easily. Woody peat is a bit over-the-top, and beeriness is kinda hidden, but it’s a bias that works.

Marduk (7599) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 9, 2017
Tap. Clear dark amber color. Small size, beige head, stays. Malty, smoked, woody, bit rubbery, whiskey, peat in aroma. Peat, malty, alcohol, caramel, woody and smoked in taste. Peated whiskey in aftertaste. Pleasant in mouth. Solid brew.
