Bottle share in the lobby at the RBSG. Poured amber. Nose of smoke. Medium plus body. Flavor is sweet and the barrel aging is interesting Different for sure and not bad. AdamChandler (5178) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 23, 2016

RBSG 2016, hotel lobby share. Bottle. Light golden amber, a bit hazy. Massive leathery peat aroma, crazy peatiness!! The palate is cloyingly sweet however, which clashes with the amazing Ardbeg character. The base beer here does not pair well with the barrel character. Very interesting though. jtclockwork (17264) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Bottle - no label taken - pours blonde - nose/taste of peat whiskey, molasses, cigar box, sweet fruit - medium body djd07 (15544) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle at RBSG Lobby Share. Pours a hazy copper with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong scotch, wood, leather. Medium body, peat, scotch, lots of heat.

Bottle - Peat, smoke and iodine. Clear gold. Sweet Woody peat and some vegetal notes. Wish it tasted as good as it smelled. Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Sampled at rbsg. Coppery and hazy. An off white head. Whiskey aroma. That and grain are tasted. Big obtrusive smoke. Meat. Some interesting fruit. Not a fan of the smoke. Without that I would like this a lot. TimsRatings (421) - - NOV 15, 2014

For some reason I'm not picking up the peatiness others have described. It is a good beer, especially for a chilly Saturday afternoon.

750ml bottle, amber brownish color with a small beige head. nose: peated is dominating, hints of cacoa butter, caramel but also earthy. Taste is heavily peated, definitely an Islay whisky. Alcohol is very well present. Finish is initial bitter, then sweet. Carbonated. Okey Barrel experiment, but too peated, too one-dimensional.

75cl bottle courtesy of tderoeck @ RBBSG II. Appears golden brown with a small loose head. Smell is peat and some sweet malt. The taste is super sweet malt, peat and grass. Medium body with mild carbonation.
