COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Batch # 428. Please be aware that this is not a subtle beer. If you are unable to appreciate the flavor of Islay Scotch whiskey, then this beer is certainly not for you. Three months of aging in fresh Islay whiskey barrels did this. Certainly great for whiskey lovers, but not necessarily for those is search of subtle and balanced flavors. The timid should look elsewhere! We love it though!

Ingredients: Grimstad water, malted barley, hops and yeast. 19°P, 30 IBU.

Wow, there’s a metric shit-ton of Scotch character in this beer. Tons of booze, peat, and malt. You even get some of those sexy subtle Scotch characteristics of rose and char. The downside is that this beer gets totally overtaken by Scotch, but it’s hard to be upset about that when the Scotch is this good.

Bottle/Fest. A- Smoke, wood, mild whisky, peat. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, tan head. T- Wood, smokey, peat. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, smokey finish. O- I was ecstatic when I got to try this one and wish it was still available to find easily, as I want more. Definitely resembles a Scotch Whisky. Lots of smoke, woody notes, and peat. It was different but I liked it a lot.

Svart med lavt lys brunt skum. Lukter cherry, mørke frukter, trevirke, noe papp og blomster. Dyp søtlighet, fruktig med middels bitterhet. Også cherry feeling i smak. Middels lengde.

Dark brown in colour, the aroma hit you like a steam train right after opening the bottle, smokiness, tar, peat, whisky, ashtray. If you like your beer that includes the following then this is something for you, peak, tar, salt, smoke, wood, ash, liquorice.

HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2015
Pours black with a smoky aroma and a decent tan head. There is a very smoky treacle flavor, slightly sweet with a whiskey finish. Too whiskyboozy for me
