I like this better than most of the other BAs it seems. Pours a clear golden orange color with minimal head and lacing.

Aroma is definitely medicinal and peaty! Loving it. There's some vanilla in there also.

Tastes really interesting- definitely is a mix of Islay scotch and lager. Definitely some light malt sweetness like a bock, and lots of peat smoke. Some vanilla and caramel also from the barrel aging.

Medium bodied with light carbonation. This is an interesting beer and if you like Islay scotch you should get it.

From a bottle, pours a hazy orange, light brown, not much carbonation.

The smell is all smoke, peat, burnt rubber bands, a little sweet bourbon, but honestly, it has this linger melted plastic smell. The flavor is not much better and is all over the place. Peat, bandaids and rubber bands, a little salt, and caramel sweetness. It even has a little bbq sauce smell to it.

Honestly, I think this is gross. I love smoke beers and BA beers, but man, these are just not coming together. It's a mess.
