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

The last beer I was able to fit in at Beer Revolution during the Central City tap takeover
A - Hazy red-brown, finger of head left thick consistent lacing
S - Roasty, molasses, peat smokiness with a slight sourness
T - much like the nose with a woody/barrell/rye whiskey note on the finish
M - medium body, slight sour feel, mild dry finish
O - my notes are a little sparce on this one but I do remember enjoying it and feeling it is a medium subdued version of the style which I enjoy more than some 'peat bombs' i've come across

On tap at St. Augustines in Vancouver.

A: 1/4" tan coloured head that dissipated quickly over mahogany liquid.

S: Caramel malt is predominant with a slightly smoky whiskey smell to it.

T: Peat smoke, caramel malt, and some coffee malt. The finish tastes somewhat like whiskey.

M: Medium viscosity with a medium to high level of carbonation.

O: Very drinkable and better than the heavier peated version.
