In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Creature Comforts The Silent World

Aroma: “Nice amount of roast, subtle smoke, black licorice, barbecue-pit whiffs mixed with peat smoke and bready malt. No discernable hops aroma.”

Flavor: “Upfront roast with notes of coffee and charred malt with no astringency or unneeded lingering. Toasted bread crust. Very crushable. Peat smoke and bready malt lead to a smooth and balanced finish that is remarkably clean and refreshing.”

Overall: “Wonderful roasted-malt character that is not heavy-handed, but still assertive. The body and slight sweetness balance the mild phenolic notes, resulting in a beer that both has some tooth and is easy to drink. Sort of a peaty Scottish meets a dunkel, in the best of all possible ways.”
