From Church-Key Brewing Co,
A peat smoked Scotch ale. This unique brews heart is that 10% of the malt is kilned over a peat fire, giving beautiful, deep rich smoky tones to the beer. It pours dark brown with a light tan head. It is low in hop bitterness and its profile is dominated by the sweet and smoky malts.
Appearance | Pitch black with a dark ruby glow. Creamy head that settles quickly into lacing.
Smell | Smoke, peat, roasted grains, brown sugar, and malts.
Taste | Smoke, peat, malts, earthiness, sweetness, and dark chocolate.
Aftertaste | Lingering notes of smoky, chocolate malts, and peat.
Overall | Holy Smoke lives up to its name. It’s a nicely balanced, low carbonated, medium-bodied brew that’s very smooth and smoky. It will remind the drinker of a campfire on a crisp fall evening. For the brew patron that is not usually adventurous, it is recommended to get a sample of it before purchasing a whole pint or bottle. While it’s delicious, it is undeniably unique and may be a very acquired taste for some. Check out a local pub, if they have it, and ask for a quarter pint first. This brew would be sensational with Thanksgiving dinner.
