Bottle shared by a friend, thanks Kevin! Best by 2009. Clear golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of peat, aged floral, gasoline fumes, industrial cleaning solution. Tastes of peat, aged floral, stale smoke. Light body with a dry finish. For a 9-10 year old bottle, the peat held up well, that's my only compliment. As one of Kevin's friends said: "This tastes like the shittiest burnt piece of bacon."

Bottle. Best by 2009. How combustible is peat moss? I know this bottle is from 2009, but it has retained that peat Scotch character with a dose of char. Wow, I'd rather just drink some really peaty scotch. This held up, but wasn't good.

Too bad its older than the trend because it tastes like tide pods. Certainly laundry detergent. Some smoked peat. Sticks with you in a bad way. Bottle.

Bottle. Pale gold in colour. Peat and smoke very noticeable in the aroma. Taste is totally dominated by the heavily peated Islay whisky; peaty, earthy, smokey, tarry, salty, woody; giving a medicinal iodine taste. Hoppy; yes, apparently New Zealand hops, but the IPA gets rather overwhelmed. Bitter salty dry finish. Very unusual beer! Perhaps a BrewDog experiment too far. (2009-02)

Pure Islay – Iodine, smoke, peat it’s all there for me. This is to me (an Islay whiskey lover) what a hop bomb is to a hop head. I like the whiskey flavors, even though there is not much of a beer presence. 2/11

Holy Crap what happened!? Pretty much smoky peanut butter and some weird kind of malts... Islay pest smoke comes through a little bit but for the most part yeesh... Definitely a dump it. Drinking it with a nice smoky scotch makes the beer a lot more palatable but it kind of Ruins the scotch... Best by 02/02/10.... Maybe part of the problem. But why are so many of these popping up now. This is so mysterious...

Well the bottle says best before 2/2/2010 and it?s 12/21/2015, so almost 6 years old... And yeah... I think it?s long past its best by date... Unfortunately I think I need to dump it.

Mark this one as a re-rate needed as the label said best before 21012 and this is 2015. I don’t believe Brew Dog would release a beer this bad. This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of frothy fine to medium sized clear colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange brown colored body and a poor lacing. The strange aroma was old ale musty dirty and mildly malty. The flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow malty dirty aftertaste. The weak flavor contained notes of dirt cardboard old ale breads and malt. A horrible one that I would rather not drink again.

TEJA (3434) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget sweden. No head over a clear amber beer. Big aroma from a cheap whisky. The whisky also dominate the taste. A bit thin body so the beer is rather one dimensional.

zoucrew102 (2360) - - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle, randomly found with best before 1/1/10. Should have looked at the date before purchasing, oh well. Very strong smokey peat aroma, much like an Islay scotch, but also had very subtle fruit esters. Pours hazy golden colored with an almost nonexistent white head and very little lacing. Light fruit esters to start, but these do not last long. The heavy smoke and peatiness of the Islay come through overpoweringly strong on the finish, wiping out any other flavors that were there. I like a good Islay, but the flavor of this wrecks the palate beyond recognition. Would have liked to try it fresh.
