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)

Bottle @ Rooie Dop brew dungeon. Brown colour, tan head. Nose is slightly roasted malts, wood, roasted malts, bit of chocolate. Flavour is slight roasted malts, caramel, wood, touch of iodine but not overpowering everything. Low carbonation. Great base beer nicely aged. Very pleasant.

We loved the dark, rich flavour. We thought it was roasty, had chocolate and smoky tones, a beautiful ruby colour, minimal head, fortunately not too sweet, soft carbonation, though a pretty abrupt finish.

Iphonephan (6724) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 27, 2013
On draft at Pizzeria Paradiso Georgetown DC. Pours a murky dark brown with an off white head. Mild smoky wood aroma. Flavors of smoked peat dominate.

Light brown, smells like huge peet and oak with a hint of blueberries. Taste is intense. HUGE smoked taste, lots of pettiness, some caramel wow. over the top intense but overall, still very drinkable.

Bottle from Gator Beverage in Gainesville. Wrapped in red paper for extra super fanciness. Pours dark brown with a one finger yellowish creamy kahki head that lingers for a bit. A bit of ruby on the sides in the light. Smell is all peat, paint thinner, wood. Yikes, complex but does not smell like something you should drink. Flavor is straight up peat whiskey and motor oil. Nothing Belgian about this. A little fruit comes out after your palate gets used to the smokey peat. No reason for this to be in a bomber size. Share it. Let it warm up, too. Fruit flavors come out as it warms. Really need to be in the mood for this. I can appreciate the whiskey, but not what I was looking for when I popped a Belgian brew. Pretty much the opposite.

Pours dark with tan head. Wood and roasted aromas. It didnt taste "peaty" at all, just some wood.

I had this at Maxs tap house in Baltimore for the Belgian beer fest. it was awesome! Smokey malt and bacon flavor after-taste... This is a mans beer to sip in a relaxed state of mind. The full thick texture and presence of dark resin taste from the barrel aging makes this slightly semi sweet beer is really nice. The alcohol is well balanced and wonderful!
