look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into glass. No bottling date information found.
Cloudy, deep amber colored body. Hard pour results in minimal head, with settles to the most minor of rings (fed by carbonation bubbles). Just a few spots of lacing that disappear.
Aroma of sweet and caramel malts, and peat/smoke with iodine.
Taste of sweet malt, but also slightly charred/slightly bitter malts, with smoky peat/iodine that can be interpreted as metallic/medicinal. Not much of a lingering after taste.
Thinner mouth feel.
Certainly has peat contribution as described on label.

Amber color, thin collar that disappears quickly leaving only an edge of glass foam. Slight peach aroma. Initial sweet beer taste that transforms into a metallic taste that lingers in the mouth.

Very nice flavor. Reminded me of a bourbon barrel beer but a little milder

Pours a deep, dark amber. A bit lighter than most Scotch Ales. Crystal clear (I can read this review through the center of the glass). Moderate head but it settles quickly. Some minor spotting on the glass for lace.

Caramel sweet with a toasted bread touch. I also get a slightly soured milk nose.

The taste hits the right notes with a heavily malted flavor. Again, it is predominately the sweet caramel and toasted bread that comes through strongest. The body is not as rich as most in this category, but the carbonation is sufficiently muted to give the beer a fuller feel. The finish is slightly off--I get a little metal, some hop (surprise!) and more of the tartness identified in the smell.

Pours cloudy, brown with a nice bold head. Aroma is a pleasant peat and sweet malt. Nice crisp bold taste with a smooth finish...got this with a Beer of the Month selection....I have never seen this brand on Long Island but would buy it if I could....This is a good one, give it a try!

Pours a reddish amber with a persistent head.
Smell is smokey peat with a little spice.
Taste is caramel malt with a bit of banana. A bit of an alcohol/medicinal taste.

Pours a cloudy, brown color. 1/6 inch head of an off-white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of strong sweet malt, smoke, slight alcohol, slight pale malt, and a hint of caramel malt. Fits the style of a Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of strong sweet malt, smoke, slight alcohol, slight pale malt, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, poor appearance, good aroma, body, blend, and feel.

Murky, dull orange color.

Minimal head; minimal lacing.

Smoke hits your nose like a prizefighter. Holy shit. Subtle raspberry smell underneath.

Murky, dull orange color.

Medium mouthfeel.

That smoked peat isn't hiding anywhere in the flavor either, it practically numbs your mouth. Again, raspberry reveals itself after several quaffs. Smoked beer done right; this is a palate wrecker but an enjoyable one. A medicinal aftertaste is present; somehow enjoyable. What a pleasant surprise; one of the better smoked beers I've had.

The coolest part of this beer is how you can taste the peat smoke in the malt used. It is interesting, but a much lighter body than I was expecting.
