I wonder what it tastes like.

I would expect an open grave (thanks Gordon).

I like my malts smoked over wood, not organic soil.  To me soil = dirt.   ;)

My first thought was along Gordon's line. Then I thought again -  I'm not so sure on the peat in beer, but I do love Laphroaig. I really like the earthiness of it.

Sadly, I rarely drink scotch nowadays as it seems to make me unwell.

"World's first whisky beer"?  It's called wash, it's been done lots. ;)

I'd try it, but I expect to dislike it.  A lot.  I really like whiskys of all sorts of peat levels, but I've never had a peated beer that was very good.

I was thinking about this the other day, as I was silly enough to order 250g of peated malt about a year ago (before I became an AHA member and learned better). I wonder what it'd be like in a really roasty stout, or maybe in an RIS? In my mind peat and hop just do not go well together so a peated IPA would be death.

The other option would be something like a Geuze - that's got weird flavor to begin with, so why not?

FWIW hopped whiskey doesn't work either.  Pretty funky tasting.
