look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: The beer is nearly jet black in color - traces of brownish amber are visible near the edges of the glass when held up to the light. It poured with a wide collar of large off white bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of smoked peat whiskey are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is very much dominated by flavors of pleated whiskey.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a low amount of carbonation along with hints of warming from the alcohol.
O: If you like smoked peat and whiskey, this is a peasant beer to sip.

Best before 10/10/09

A: Pours an opaque yet clear very dark amber in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation and moderate ruby red + dark amber highlights. The beer has a very thin sudsy/soapy beige head that quickly reduces to a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong aromas of smokey peat scotch whiskey with a light amount of iodine/band-aid.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate amount of roasted malts followed by a moderate to strong flavor of smoked peat moss, scotch whiskey, and just a hint of iodine/band-aid. Minimal amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with minimal amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: The scotch whiskey is really strong but enjoyable with this beer imparting strong flavors and aromas of smoked peat - if you do not enjoy scotch, you should avoid this beer.
