Bitch please pours out a nice dark amber color. While pouring a head forms but not aggressively. The head is a tan colored with tight micro bubbles and fades away to just an island patch and a subtle cream slick over the entire surface. The beer smells nice and smokey. The smokey smell of the beer is quite dominating and I cannot detect much else. The flavor is much the same in that it is completely dominated by the smoke. It's like drinking a camp fire. I was hoping for some alcohol notes or something other than just smoke. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

Overall I like the beer but it did not turn out as I was expecting. I think that the aging was a useless time since any subtle flavors that would have been left by the barrels are completely wiped away from such a strong smoke. There are so many other good smokey beers out there that are less then half the price of this single I purchased this for. If you want to experiment try it and if you think its a little pricey skip it as you're not missing much.

According to the bottle, this beer was brewed in August of 2010 and is best before 2016.

Not a particularly appealing beer looks-wise, this beer has lots of sediment visible in the cloudy, muddy brown liquid. The head was about a quarter finger thick, fizzy and rapidly dissipated into a thin lace at the center of the beer. There's steady carbonation apparent and not much else of note.

I get a lot of raisin on the nose, as well as the peaty aroma of whiskey, some boozy astringency and dark fruit. The raisin and peat are most prominent. There's also a bit of a smoky charcoal aroma.

Woosa, this beer is very whiskey-like! A huge, smokey, peaty flavor hits the mouth immediately and lingers strongly on my tongue. With the highly carbonated mouthfeel, this adds a tingling tongue sensation that almost reminds me of what a Seven and Seven would feel and taste like. There are some sweet caramelly notes and earthy hops in there too, it just takes a minute to discover them with the intensity of the previously mentioned flavor notes. As I continue to drink, the raisin notes from the nose emerge a bit as well.

I don't detect any alcohol astringency, despite the whiskey presence, so the beer drinks relatively smoothly. The aftertaste is intense and not faint for the heart, if smokiness and charcoal don't sound appealing to you, I don't advise drinking this, however, I am enjoying it.

I'd say there are deficiencies with this beer and it's not perfect, but it is quite an adventure and a beer I'm not likely to forget. However, I think I paid a pretty penny for this beer and can't justify that again.

3.21/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

The colour is brown-red (50 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger thick beige head sinks slowly leaving no lacing on the glass.

The smell is sweet-tart with some smokey notes. Band-aid, cream, gooseberries, red currants and some toffee. Quite a lot of alcohol.

The taste is very woody. It is dry with distinct high alcohols. Whiskey, salt and butterscotch. Quite a lot of oaked notes and some green fruits. Medium body. The aftertaste got hot alcohol, oak and whiskey flavours. The finish is rather smooth with wooden notes.

The carbonation is quite strong. The small bubbles are long lasting in the mouth. The liquid is dry and a bit harsh.

An experimental brew that probably was more fun to make than to drink (at least after a few years).

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Murky brown color with a fluffy two finger head with low retention and floating particles.
Predominant aroma of smoked ham, earthy hops, spices, caramels and peat-ashes duet.
Taste follows nose and definitely a sipper. Flavor of peppery yeast, peat, vanilla, oak, whisky, lots of resiny hops and a citrus, sulfur and earthy hint. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 11.5% abv is well hidden.
Not that complex, but still an excellent assertive choice of Barley Wine for whisky lovers. Nevertheless, if you never liked good Scotch and it is expecting a fruity Barley Wine, don't pour it in the drain, simply don't open the bottle and send it to my address. We'll both be thankful.
