"Whisky Beer"
A superb balanced beer with smokey overtones from peated malt. With a measure of English Whisky from St. Georges Distillery in Norfolk, it is rich in flavour.

Cant quite work out the smell? is a golden colour with no head, taste is disgusting with a rank cloying taste at the back of the mouth. i usually like st peters but this is foul.

500ml bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a low to medium slightly off-white soapy head with low retention. Light to medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Bitter smokiness with some sweet tones. Smoke, roasted malts, spice and grain. A decent smokey ale.

As amber as amber comes with a persistent head of cream coloured foam. Some carbonation evident and excellent clarity. The aroma is of phenolicy bonfire-like peat. An aroma I have been in love with ever since I gained my black belt in whisky including marinading myself in Islay single malts. However, my impression is one of dustier grain silo than of bonfire, charry earth or medicinal herbaceous smokiness. This was a similar character in Yeastie Boys XeRReX but it was on a much more massive scale in that one. Anyway, the flavour was of that kind of peat with amber orchard malts that dried nicely and... well I was going to write about a finish, but that hasnt happened yet and is unlikely to any time soon given the full flush of flavour currently on my palate minutes after.

lacks a little fullness but an interesting smokebeer with lots of peat smoke.

rikstar (2563) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2014
0,5l fles van speciaalbierpakket.nl. Amberkleurig met een zeer bescheiden schuimkraag. Geur is gerookte mout met een klein beetje een zoetzuur fruittoontje. In de smaak ook overheersend de rook met op de achtergrond iets van appel. Body is licht nasmaak blijft wel lekker hangen. Erg lekker rook bier. James dat het zo doods het flesje uit kwam.

Finn (7038) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
Flaske 0,5l fra Vinmonopolet, Troms Langnes. Mrk gyldenbrun. Hyt luftig skum med kniplingslacing. Skummet daler sakte. Litt tung whiskyaroma. Smaken er rkt torv - p grensen til fjs. Lite annet. Ikke helt vellykket.
