Absolutely my favorite. The peated malt gives it a smooth flavor close to scotch.
Absolutely outstanding. A very solid base for a British style amber with a Northwestern US kiss of Alderwood smoke. Adding the maltodextrin with dry malt extract resulted in a very rapid build up of foam, making the process of returning to a boil a challenge. Had to use a spoon to constantly strike down the foam. (Also added 1 lb Belgian Candi Dark beet sugar) And it was worth the brief battle. Enhanced the hop schedule to; (2) oz Kent Golding (UK) @ 59m, (2) oz (UK) Challenger at 30 mins, (1) oz. Glacier with Whirlfloc and yeast fuel @ 15 before burnout and finally (1) oz St. Celia (Golding) hops of Slovenia. The rare type provided with the kit was even more regional. Cool. The brew is incredible. Has a saddle leather and old skool UK start with a milky body, followed by spice and hops. Perfect body. Twas my 7th brew and one that will never be forgotten. This one is really good. Used liquid White Labs London Ale Yeast WLP013 and Danstar dry Windsor Ale yeast. Fermentation ended in 12 days. 7.7% ABV
This was an awesome brew. The hop bite hits you first, followed by smoke, and rounded out with the cream. It was perfect backyard brew for frying our turkey at Thanksgiving.
Had never tried a smoked before, but this tasted wonderful, had a nice brownish color, and was a simple recipe. Served to others at a gathering and got very good reviews. Plan to make this again.
Extract, kegged. Delightful and not overpowering smokey front end with good body and an appropriately balanced hopping at the end. Very balanced. Takes a few swigs to get used to the peaty smoke flavors but after savoring nearly the entire 5 gallons myself over a month, this one goes on the will brew again list.
