COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Oak n’ Islay edition er No Name Stout lagret med egetræ, der har trukket en tid i lækker Skotsk Caol Ila whisky fra Islay. Egetræet bidrager med fine vaniljenoter, og den kraftige og røgede whisky bidrager med… ja whisky og noter af tørverøg. Nu har vi bevæget os væk fra morgenmåltidet, og er nærmest ved desserten – nyd den til et stykke rigtig god mørk chokolade, eller en god kop kaffe, og du er et skridt nærmere himmeriget.

LoFi (1593) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2011
Draught. Black with a cappuccino-coloured ring. Aroma: light peaty, chocolate, some licorice. Taste: peat and whisky, but not that much, chocolate, licorice, some coffee. Medium-bodied, a bit sharp carbonation. The Islay aging is apparent, but more laid back than I expected. Nice though.

gyllenbock (4650) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2011
On tap at SBWF 2011. Black with a tan head. A nice beer with quite a lot of whisky in it. Surprisingly sweet taste. Good and interesting but maybe too much whisky character?

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2011
Sample @ Gothenburg Beerfest 2011. 2-9-2011. Noire beige Arôme est forcément de Islay, malt grillé et ici le Islay donne une touche de tourbe agréable sans pour cela trop dominer. En bouche, bière est légère et ici le Islay reste présent mais appréciable dans son profile tourbe. Un whisky que j’ai du mal à apprécier pour son côté très peat/tourbe cendre mais qui ici est vraiment bien dosé. Une note de vanille, liquoreux sur la fin.

Sigmund (5119) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 2, 2011
500 ml bottle, as The Black Rooster Stout Oak’n Islay Edition, from Ølkonsortiet, Aalborg. ABV is 6.7%. Pitch black colour, large to moderate brown head. Nice aroma, roasty, coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, tar, liquorice, Islay whisky with notes of peat smoke, oak, vanilla, sea water and old rope. The flavour is medium sweet (or medium dry, if you like), with strong notes of peat / smoke, ashes, Islay whisky and roasted malts / coffee. A slight unwanted acidity and some salty notes. The hops are quite moderate.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2011
Draught at Ørsted, Copenhagen
Black color; creamy brownish head. The aroma is smoked, peaty, but also with a medicinal component that is not very appreciated. Dry mouthfeel, with smooth roasted malt, some whiskey, peaty character, good chocolate, light liquorice, a bit salty too; and again, chemicals and medicinal; ordinary bitterness.
Controversial.

larsga (6213) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2011
Medium dark brown head. Nearly opaque black body is clear deep dark red at edges. Deep burnt smoky mealy aroma with minty earthy notes. Very clear and harmonic. Dry-sweet smoky burnt toffee taste with whisky notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dry sooty smoky whisky aftertaste with toffee and chocolate notes. Nice, but perhaps a bit much whisky taste. (0.5l bottle, Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

Pours black with a tiny brown head. Aroma is smoke, oak, liquorice, dark roasted malts, chocolate and some boiled meat. Taste is oak, smoke, bitter liquorice, hops, chocolate and roasted malts.

Sample at Lkpg Beer Expo. Dark brown with a beige head. Smells like a lit matchstick. Smoaky taste with some mud-pie. Rather dry and a bit weird.
