Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours a clear dark orangey brown with a beige head. Nose has caramel, iodine and distinct peat - with a whiff of butter. Medium body, dry caramel notes and again loads of peat, tar and iodine. Ends dry and ashy with a subdued bitterness. Not the worst peaty beer. 260911

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, Switzerland
Dark brown color; medium sized creamy head. The aroma from the peaty whisky is moderate, delicate, not overwhelming. The underlying Brown Ale has a quite ordinary caramel flavor that edges on the dry and dusty side; but it’s well complemented by a moderate smoked whisky flavor; there is also some chocolate and very light roasted malts.
The final is correctly bitter, with light roasted nuts and light whisky.
Pleasant, it gives a better statement than the Special Reserve 43, but it’s less seducing than the Special Reserve 21, also because of the different original cask used.
