COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

TBone (17047) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2017
Tap at Beer Hunters. Clear amber color, small white head. Strong peaty islay nose. Medium-bodied. Peaty, alcoholic, sweetish malty flavour. Whiskey overdose over pale malty flavours.

Clear amber, thin head. Just smells of whisky! Taste has fruit, some hop.... and whisky. The whisky really comes through. Lovely but a third is enough.

A little bit too far out there for me. Very spicy like mezcal or mastika. Hard to get past that to the hops (fruity and bitter) and a solid malt. Back to beers I can drink ...

Ferris (14359) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2017
Draft - Mezcal spiciness, peat and barrel notes. Clear gold with almost no head. Raw woody notes, tons of peat and a long finish. Intense but yet the heat is non existent and a pleasant finish. Complex and maybe confused but taste is long and smooth. A nice if odd sipper.

Third in brewdog shoreditch. I like this. Very evocative of a smoky peaty single malt. Also has raisin notes. Good stuff.

Geiserich (4369) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 28, 2017
Bottle: Aroma is whiskey, alcohol, smoked, some sweetness. Folden color, white head. Flavor is medium sweet, quite alcoholic, sharp, smoky bitterness. OK but too alcoholic.

Keg at BrewDog Shoreditch. Light tawny brown, clear, very little carbonation. Aroma of tequila, cherry caramel, whisky sour, tangerine peel. Strong sweet alcoholic taste with a wonderfully thick oily palate. This isnt one of my favourite BD beers but its certainly complex and has a hell of a lot going for it.
