100% Peated

Nøgne Ø 100% Peated is brewed with 100% Scottish peat smoked whisky malt and has an intense smokey flavour and aroma. I was at the brewery many years ago when this beer was still in fermenting tanks and it was giving off an intense smokey aroma, I did get to taste it also but hated it back then. So I ended up with a bottle and was planning on blending it with a porter or adding it to a sauce but this never happened.

It was light brown to amber in colour, aroma is very peat dominant, smoke, oaky and sweet malt. It pretty much smells like a peated whisky in a glass, Laguvulin. If the aroma was 100% peated then the tastes is about 80% which was a relief. It tasted a lot less peaty and was a touch sweet from the malt, but still lots of peat and smoke in this monster. Did not think this was going to be drinkable when i received the bottle, even the label states this but I was pleasantly surprised and quite enjoyed it.
