COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is brewed with 100% Scottish peat smoked whisky malt. This malt generates an intense smokey flavor and aroma. In fact its intensity makes this beer almost undrinkable, unless you blend it with other ingredients. We recommend to use this product to give a balanced smoked note to foods and drinks as oysters, sauces, marinades, sausages, fatty fish, chocolate and dark beer. Improve your world by giving it a hint of smoke.

SaintMatty (6959) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2016
250ml Bottle (Thanks Cunningham) - Dark amber in colour. Smells and tastes like an ashtray. Awful and no balance. At least they were honest on the label!

Martinus (4560) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2016
Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of whisky and peat. And lots of it. Light sweet flavour, smoke and peat. Peated finish. One Trick Pony, but I rather like it.

jaghana (5603) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 30, 2016
Bottle 25cl shared bu Stephane thanks. A copper and cloudy beer with low head. Nose is intense on smoked malt, very peated. Aroma is very smoked, medium sweet, licorice notes, alcohol is well present. Nice stuff, typical peated whiskey notes, may be less powerful as 4 years old.

MarcoDL (4309) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2016
Bottle. Orange pour. Aroma of strong peat, smoke and malt. Taste of heavy peat, smoke, sweet malt, caramel and ripe fruit. Better than expected, but a bit one dimensional.

Mesjasz (1154) - Lodz, POLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle. Strong aroma of bitumen, burned electronic, earthy, basement. Taste even more extreme than aroma. This is good stuff, but only for people with specific taste :)

Garlic_of_Doom (628) - SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle from the Knutsens, thanks! Amber with a minimal white foam lid. Some foam clinging to the glass. Nice. Aroma has peat, peat, peat, smoke and some fruity notes in the background. Taste is smoky with peat, slight bitterness and no alcohol. Medium body, low carbonation, dry mouth feel. Dry peaty after taste.

One sided but tasty.
