Color naranja amarronado, opaco debido a su turbidez, sin espuma (alguna burbuja grande que se disipa al instante). Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Aroma ahumado, acaramelado, ligeramente especiado, licoroso. Fruta madura, caramelo, mucho ahumado, especias, licor. No capto nada salino. Final ahumado y ligeramente licoroso. Un desastre.

Kleurplaatje (212) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2017
Pours hazy brown, minimal head and slight residue. Nose is smoke and peat. Some caramel notes, but its predominantly peat. Taste is sweet. Clear caramel, vanilla, smoke and peat. Spicy, yeasty, fruity (overripe fruits). Bourbon notes, some notes of gin as well... Love it. A true explosion of complex flavors. Full bodied, low carbonation. Would love to see this one aged to (further) perfection).

Interesting experiment - peated with dry fruit notes. Same on the pallet with barely noticable saltyness and some alcohol warmth.

330ml bottle. Thanks to restaurant Harmonia! Pours amber colour. No head. Strange, but smoked sprats come into mind then talking about the aroma of this beer. Ok. Smoke. Lots of bourbon. Peat. Slight sourness. (Aroma). Caramel. Smoke. Caramel. Berries. Sourness. Apples smoke. Smoked wood. Burnt caramel. (Taste). Smoke in the aftertaste. Apple wine as well. What to say? Quite confused. Bit amazed as well.

Hazy reddish - amber beer, decent cream colour head. Palate is smooth and fairly dry, decent fine carbonation. Smooth dry malts, some cream and caramel but not that sweet. Fair bit of spice. Mellow smoke ever present. Dried fruits and ripe fruits. Light dry finish. Drinks fairly easy for the abv but it never really takes off for me.

Czerwone, niska piana. Karmel, sól, wędzonka, wanilia, alkoholowe pieczenie, rodzynki. Piwo jest gęste i treściwe.

Drank 28-3 @Majid the night before going to Struise. Interesting beer. Uncommon taste. Sweet, smoked, peated. Nice. Little too peated for me, though.

Totalnie odjechane piwo.

Aromat: wędzonka, wanilia, nieco kokosa, nuty winne czy lekko dzikie oraz alkohol. Ze słodu oprócz torfu także chleb, karmel i słodka skórka ciasta.

Wygląd: barwa głęboko pomarańczowa w stronę czerwonej, z ładną beżową pianą. Byłoby idealnie gdyby nie mnóstwo osadu, który pływa w całej butelce (nie ma możliwości nalania bez niego). Dosyć gęsta i oleista konsystencja.

W smaku spora słodycz kontrowana solą i duża doza alkoholu. Oprócz tego wyraźna nuta wędzona, przez co czuć raczej whisky niż bourbon. Dodatkowo nuty karmelowe czy chlebowe, trochę przypraw i akcenty owocowe - cytrusy, co faktycznie smakuje, jak połączenie imperialnego saisona i barley wine. Goryczka niewielka, mało wyrazista (alkoholowo- wędzona). Krągła do tęgiej pełnia, umiarkowane wysycenie i wyraźny posmak whisky na finiszu z nutą alkoholową rozgrzewająca przełyk. No i znowu te owoce. Nie do końca mi te połączenia smakują.
