On tap at Monk's Cafe Mad Monday event, 3/2014

A-Pours a hay-like dark golden color with a small creamy white head that has decent retention.

S- Port Charlotte is a heavily peated scotch, which is obvious from the atoms. It literally smells like band-aide roasted over a camp fire with a side of bacon.

T- heavy peat gives flavors of burnt rubber and smoked sausage. The peat is so strong that it's pretty much all I can taste, I can't really pick out any of the base beer's flavors

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a pretty smooth finish

O- This is one of those situations where the barrel was just simply too strong, as it was the only thing I could taste. Perhaps this would have worked better with an imperial stout? Not for me, or anyone at my table. Only recommended for fans of heavily peated Scotch

Feel. Rather high but soft carbonation. Medium body. High ABV?
Durable head over a hazy amber body,
Slight bitter/sour note in the finish and aftertaste. Soft, ripe fruit notes.
Very slight harshness (from ABV?).
