330ml bottle. Pours yellow with almost no head. Smells like a sweet smoky scotch that doesn’t know it’s actually beer. Lots of peat in the taste as well. Rather an experimental beer than anything else though. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is all Islay, with tons of smokey whiskey. Flavour is intense, with nothing but smoky Islay. What a monolithic beer. Not exactly good, but a cool beer to try. PetesBeers (38) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2014
Yes, it’s peaty... hello?! Easier with a blocked nose, like mine, but still... Perfectly drinkable, and I like the unique, smoky after-taste, so there. XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle share. Thanks Amanda! Cloudy yellow. Aroma is earthy peat, straw, honey. Taste is sweet. A bit thin but really interesting and great aroma. Ferris (15003) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle - Sweet peat, smoke and BBQ. Clear gold with a decent white head. Just like it smells, lovely peat, a total smoke bomb. Love it long time.

Tastes like someone dropped an Islay malt in a lager. Briny, heavy peat flavour but with thin texture. Smells like stale hobo sweat, like fermenting body odour. Points awarded for creativity and experimentation but it?s challenging to get through a bottle. Still worth a try. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 26, 2014
smoky peaty aroma, taste is ash smoky strange, finishes bitter dry smoky, not that drinkable really hank37 (194) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2014
bottle from copper and oak. Let’s not get it twisted - this beer is a curiosity, and that’s it. Don’t get me wrong - it’s interesting and unique, but i’d never buy another.
pours a pale,piss-weak yellow. Smoky aromas, the one you’d get at the end of a bushfire, and a smoked salmon whiff. Solventy - but not in the way alcohol is traditionally...think...textas. RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 16, 2014
STOP - you need to plan when you’ll have this. This is a PEATY beer - think Islay whisky: Laphroaig, Ardbeg etc. Smokey peat is the overwhelming flavour. Ideally you can give ~20 people a small taste from one bottle. You’ll die if you drink a whole bottle yourself. I wouldn’t drink more than ~50 ml of this beer but I appreciate it for being a remarkable beer that shows the limits of what beer brewing can achieve. Blairgus (4535) - California, USA - JUL 28, 2014
28 July 2014, bottle. sickly mild yellow, faintly cloudy with some sediment or malt bits in the bottom. nose is huge peat and smoked sausage. like huge peat! not a great thing. med body and moderately fizzy. whole wheat bread, really big peat, smoked sausage. it tastes a bit more moderate than it smells but the peat is still huge. The more i drink the more the alcohol helps temper the initial big peat hit. This is the kind of beer i could drink occasionally but not regularly. It’s not too heavy but the peat really makes it a beer you need to choose the occasion for.
