Nice fig, raisin, and plum notes on the nose. Smells fresh, and surprisingly hoppy. Not too bad overall.

Appearance was muddy brown with a very light tan head. Not very aesthetically pleasing, however, I poured the yeast by accident. It looked a lot better before the yeast shot, so I'm giving it a moderate score.

Booze, front and center. Followed by a charred woody taste, as if I am gnawing on a piece of burnt wood. Its incredibly hard to taste anything else in this beer. Its really like a boozy campfire in my mouth. Carbonation isn't bad - nice and moderate, and it has a full body mouthfeel to it. I wouldn't seek this one out again, unfortunately.

Pours brown, very little head. Maybe a little cloudy. Smells of scotch, peat, smoke, with smoke the dominant tone.

First taste is Very sweet, but not round. Smoky. Effervescent and/or acidic. Very much like scotch - harsh, requiring small sips. Long peaty finish. Sharp and sweet. Drink it slow!

Amusing note: the label. Promises a CA cash refund, 5$ (sic) in VT, ME, CT, MA, etc., 10$ (sic) for MI, OK+, FL

Pours copper with a large, fading head.
Nose shows tons of peat. Almost rauch-like in its smokiness. Also lots of caramel and golden syrup. Lots of woody notes.
Very whisky-like flavours. Lots of peat and woody notes, along with some booze and more caramel. Definitely a sipper.
Good light carbonation and a slightly syrupy body.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

APPEARANCE: This looks a lot like a Barleywine, browner than usual and verymurky with a surprisingly big head that fades quickly. The lacing is strong.

SMELL: There is a ton more citrus that expected from an American-style Barleywine, but a lot of the typical Barleywine aromas push through, sugar, banana, bread.

TASTE: Whoa! In no way, shape or form is this a typical Barleywine - American or otherwise. This tastes like I just cut my grass. It's insane. That said, even though it is super grassy it's also very peaty, mossy and smoky.

MOUTHFEEL: Dry, crisp and...well...not so clean. There is a lot more sparkle than expected, but it isn't overwhelming.

OVERALL: This is the "Scotch-iest" beer the world has ever seen. I can't tell if that's awesome or awful, but either way it certainly is unique.

Murky, brown colour with a smooth, foamy, light tan head. Nice lacing if not a lot of head.

Immediately peaty on the nose followed by a clean sweetness, dried fruits, herbal notes and caramel. Very nice.

Smoky with all the peat you would expect backed up by a herbal, fruity character than adds depth. There is a touch of bacon like character and then lots of sweetness. A really interesting beer with the phenolic from the barrel working nicely.

Medium-full body with moderately-high carbonation. Surprisingly spritzy.

A really good beer. I love the peat character and while not for everyone, this is simple cool.

Pours a red-brown sort of colour, mostly red. Head is beiege, foamy but quite decent. Nice lace; looks good.

Smokey. Charry, burnt, smouldering actually on the nose. So much aroma, and history, and evolution in that smell. It's all of one family but so much character. Wow.

Taste is hugely burnt, charred and smokey. Not meaning to channel Ralph Wiggum but "it tastes like burning". Smouldering, peat-filled, smokey malt. Slight spice and caramel at the back adds a touch of sweetness, but it's really just mostly that smouldering, day-old ash heap; that's the flavour.

Remarkably smooth for the size; big body but pretty good.

Hugely burnt, almost spicy, carbon-burning flavour. I love it of course but it's just so deep and complex and yet there's a smoothness to the construction. Pretty amazing beer.
