look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours deep red/orange with a lasting thin head that leaves lines of lacing.

The smell is sour with caramel backing and peat smoke.

The taste is of sour with caramel, peat smoke and a hint of dried fruits. The sour is strong, as is the peat smoke but doesn't overpower the sweet caramel and dried fruit (apricot?). Complex in a layered way.

Very smooth, dangerously drinking, the alcohol is very well covered - almost undetectable.

A complex, easy-drinking "sipper". Sour, smoky and sweet, this is an exceptional brew!

4/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

750ml bottle, not sure what the bottling date is; poured into a CCB snifter 7/19/2014.

A- Dark mahogany brown-reddish body with a thin, half-finger off-white head without much staying power. Not much lacing. Sort of looks like plum juice.

S- Acetic dark fruits, caramel, tapioca, oak tannins. Cherry, raspberry and plums make up most of the dark fruit character. I don't get a lot of smoke or peat character here but I won't complain too much. But right, this smells fairly sweet but somewhat acidic.

F- Dark fruits- raspberry, plums, figs more so here than in the nose- added onto a sweet malty base with caramel and toffee- mixed in with some lactic acid. Again, not a ton of smoke, but there is a little bit of burnt grain. Finish is oaky and acidic.

M- Medium in body, average carbonation. Could use a little more pep, but otherwise it's quite drinkable. I did not notice it is quite high in ABV until later; it hides it fairly well but when it warms up, I got a slightly astringent boozy character to the finish.

O- This worked out as well as you'd expect a sour peated scotch ale to work. I'd recommend giving it a try if you're feeling adventurous.

Bancreagie Sour Peated Ale pours a dark reddish color with a nice big lacing head. There is a sour aroma with big sour grape flavors, almost like a wine. The taste has noticeable, but mellow, sour flavors, sweet and fruity, with some aged wine flavors. Good feel, and not too sour. Overall its very easy drinking and flavorful sour ale.
