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)

Very dark, reddish black. Dark cream foam that leaves a good lace. Smoky malts, wood and whisky, reminds of Lagavulin. Dried fruits, plums, delicious malts, chocolate and again the whisky tones. Creamy and oily. Smoke, very pleasant smoke. Long, balanced finish. Really impressive. Tasted from bottle.

This is indeed a great beer, which have a very strong flavour of peat. Not to confuse it with tar or smoke. This characteristic taste is due to the use of peated whisky casks. I love the balance of the oak/peat and bitterness, which is difficult to achieve. But this is a perfect example of how well beer can be brewed. This 0.66 liter bottle, was served at aprox. 12-15 C, which I think is the perfect temperatur for strong beer. It has a great foam layer, and looks really nice in the glass. The best is still to come.... The very rich taste of this simple blow you away. It is very concentrated, and just in harmony. Hints of coffee, toast, caramel and of course peat ! comes together in a very pleasent experience. Well done. And luckily, the finish is very long. I love this beer. Nothing more to say

Deep copper/ruby pour with a thick, lomglasting head. Extremely complex and intense nose of sherry, pralines in cream, huge peat, overripe dark fruit (figs, dates, raisins) walnuts, toffee, vanilla and oak, and earthy hops. Nice lacing, and a very heavy, almost syrupy body that delivers a mouth-coating finish. Taste is even more complex with all of the above plus raisins and even bleu cheese. This beauty reminds me of NC Old Stock Ale if it had been aged on peated oak. Absolutely my new, hands down favorite smoked beer.
