Botella de 33 Cl. Para no son necesarias estas cervezas. Es humo embotellado, para eso esta el tabaco ¿no?. Mortlach (2350) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 23, 2012
21/04/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Vintage 2009, brettata. Nera, riflessi marroni, schiuma biancastra, abbondante e persistente. Al naso è brettata, con note di bacon, tostato e ciliegia. In bocca è acida con note torbate un po’ soffocate. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. E’ la seconda BZ&T infetta che becco, ed è un gran peccato. Una Orval affumicata. madmitch76 (25009) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2012

Cask at GBBF. Opaque black beer. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Pleasantly peaty malt with a sprinkle of minerals. Finishes crisp with juicy peat malt. Nice.
Trockener Malzantrunk mit rauchigen Beinoten, die irgendwie fad wirken. Das Bier ist kaum aromatisch und lässt alle Elemente der ursprünglichen Version vermissen. Im Abgang noch wenig rauchig, wässrig. Belanglos! 12/7/8/7//7

At Borefts Bier Festival 2010. Black colored brew. Tapped the first couple of glasses at the festival. First one was for me of course. Chocolate in the aroma, some oak. Flavor has peat, chocolate, roasted malts. Well balanced.

Draught at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Nice improvement in the barrel with this one, adds aroma and a bit more complexity. bierkoning (13387) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2010
Tap @ 2nd BBF. It took a while at the festival before the tap was on, but finally I got the change to taste this beauty. Deep dark brown color, opague. Soft aroma with licorice and chocolate. Malty roasty flavor with chocolate, with well integrated peaty notes. Well rounded and delicious. yespr (45870) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2010
From cask at GBBF 2010. Pours dark black with no head. Aroma is phenolic and slight acetone. Light smoked. Dry and dark malty flavoured. Mild smoked and with a slight sweet edge. Ends dry and lingering roasted malty, slight fruity. Dark malty finish. chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2010
From the barrel at the Great British Beer Festival, Day 1, August 2009. Very dark brown colour. Lots of smoky Islay notes as one might expect but not so peaty / medicinal as some of the "Islay" beers. Presumably because this uses Bruichladdich malt but is aged in a non-Islay barrel. Although the distillery has made some big changes since the change of ownership it was not traditionally one of the peatier Islay malts. All this makes for a well-balanced and nicely drinkable beer that is not too OTT on the Islay character and should be palatable even to Islay-haters.

Cask (gravity) wooden barrel @ GBBF 09, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.
Clear dark brown color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, smoke - peat, wood - barrel, light chocolate, alcohol notes. Flavor is light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is oily - creamy, carbonation is flat. Again a master work by Menno - very balanced version of his already very nice smoked beer with scotish malt and then barrel ageded it and not oak aged !
