COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wrapped bottle, striped red paper with sticker "Peated whiskey cask" on the lower right end of the "logo"
An 9% ABV beer in which the fermented sugars were all obtained from malt (20 degrees Plato). A generous dose of hops and a long maturation time makes this beer best of the best. This beer is bottle conditioned and will go through taste evolution during many years. Selected by the brewer from his best peated whisky casks. Matured for a quarter of a year. Winner of the Zythos Beer Festival (ZBF) consumer prize 2011. (Translation by Martinus)

Oldmanriver (59) - Freiburg, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
Super complex and delicious. Pours dark brown/black. Relatively flat looking light on carbonation. Nice peat aroma (not too strong, but noticeable) on top of dark malt, plum, oak, honey, tobacco, and leather. The mouthfeel is on the light side, earthy, malty, grainy, and deep. The smoke flavor was wonderfully subtle. More of a complimentary element rather than a dominate bacon in a bottle. It is rich in flavor and complexity. finishing relatively dry with a slight ash astringency.

SimonBeer (113) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2014
(Drinking date: 28 February 2014) The beer is pitch black, no light comes through. Thin layer of foam on the head. The beer smells a lot like whiskey, a lot of wood and smoke in the aroma. I don?t really like it. The carbonation and the mouthfeel are good. The taste is better, but still a lot of smoke and wood in the taste. I think this is a really good beer, but it is not my type of beer. So I rated this beer how I personally like it, so that?s why this beer gets a low score unfortunately. So overall this beer has a powerfull wood and smoke aroma and taste, which I personally don?t like. But I think that other people like this beer a lot. So it?s not a bad beer, it?s really good, but I personally don?t like it :( That?s why it gets the total score of 2.9 (Unfortunately I threw this beer away)
