3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I wasnít a fan of the other Bitch Please, so I was anxious to tackle this one. Pours dark amber with a medium low head. Aroma strong cask smoke, almost like a whiskey. Slight sweet taste with a hint of peat. The alcohol comes through, but not annoyingly. Medium strong palate. Very much nicer than the non islay version. Not Bad.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2012 (Bottle) Pours dark brown with orange and red hints. Off-white to sand colored head. The aroma holds boat loads of smoky whisky up front with undertones of bready/caramelized/light roasted malt, earthy/citric/grassy hops and numbing alcohol. A tiny whisper of berries. The flavour is light to medium sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with smoke, meat, whisky, alcohol, dusty asphalt, salt liquorice, clean/medium roasted malt and a touch of berries. The mouthfeel is too clean and numbing with a soft carbonation. Medium to full bodied.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle courtesy of Hugh (non-RB).ours dark reddish wooden brown with a rather small offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving lots of trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and heavy smokey with peat, burnt wood, salty seaweed, alcohol, Islay whisky (obviously), sweet very dark bread (pumpernickel), mineral rich soil, sheet metal, plums, sawdust, orange peal, burnt caramel, salty liquorice and hints of tar, asphalt and smoke. Taste is sweet and bitter with peat, smoke, mineral rich soil, sheet metal, prunes, raisins, single malt whisky, alcohol, smoke, burnt wood, burnt caramel, seaweed, wet rock, moss, pumpernickel, asphalt and orange peal. Mouthfeel is intense, boozy, sticky sweet, tiny tart and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and slightly bitter with peat, alcohol, orange peal, plums, caramel and sweet dark bread. Drinks like a carbonated "low" alcohol Islay whisky. Not 100% sure if thatís good or bad. Too extreme to grasp...

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is exactly the beer I thought it would be-like sucking the whisky right from the Islay staves. I anticipate this beer being very polarizing. If you arenít a scotch drinker, which Iím not really, you probably wonít like this. There are definitely high phenolics swirling around here that could,knock you out. Sme might call it burnt rubber and so on but, again, this is exactly the beer I expected it to be and not disappointed.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brewdog shop. Dark brown color, small white head. Strong, peaty whisky infused taste with raisins and some coffee. Very different, but good brew, especially if you like islay single malts.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Chestnut brown with an off-white head. Nice Laphroig aroma. It really takes over. As if youíre sniffing a dram. The flavour is pretty poor. Smoky Islay whisky dominates the flavour but thereís also some unpleasant sweet alcohol. Itís badly realised as a concept. I do like the smoky, peaty nature of Islay whiskys so itís not a complete write-off.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
[330ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Opaque brown beer with a thin white head. Aroma of smoky peat, furniture polish. On the taste, the Laphroaig flavours come out from start to finish - smoke, peat, thick tar, huge alcohol comes over more as large amounts of phenol. Rising sticky sweetness couples with that phenol - not for me

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark orange brown with a lacy tan frothy head. Smells like a 10 year whisky. Wood, and alcohol. Medium prickly oily body. Taste of whiskey with a light vanilla finish. Nut, charcol, dark fruit. caramel and wood with hints of pine and some sweet notes on the finish. Gut warming. I know this is suppose to be a complex beer which it is but it feels more like a whisky then a beer. Very intensive for a nonspirit drinker. As I drink it, it becomes easier to drink. Be prepared for some serious drinking.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle. Pours dark honey or chestnut in colour with a thin layer of lace. The nose is definitely whisky and in fact you can definitely Islay whisky. There is also a praline note. The taste is quite overpowering though not as overpowering as the non-Islay version. There is still a nuttiness that I like but there is extreme alcohol burn.

Bottle shared. Orange brown pour with ting head. Aroma is wood, caramel and vanilla. Peat comes out in the flavour with caramel and wood in the finish. Prefer this to the original version
