Yeah. I didn't realize it had peat smoked malt in it until I took a sip; quite a surprise. It was unique, but not something I truly enjoyed. My homebrew buddy has been trying to talk me into a peat smoked beer, but I've been resisting. This didn't do him any favors, but I'll certainly let him try one of the other bottles I have sitting around.

The wife and I cracked a 2011 DL while watching T2 with some friends last night. I enjoy the beer enough, but wish there was less of the soy sauce component. Certainly sweet and thick enough to be a long slow sipper though.
