Notes

On the nose neat we discovered a fascinating mixture of salty and briny aromas making this a very maritime experience. Barbequed langoustines, scallops with seaweed butter and sweet pickled herring were well balanced with the rich malty aroma of a dark wheat beer. The taste neat was intense, intense sweet and intense peat - black treacle and tar, roasted sweet potatoes with honey and cinnamon while in the finish, the smoky and malty character of a classic Rauchbier. Diluted it felt like dousing a peat fire with sea water and on the palate the perfect balance between salt, sweetness and smoke.
