3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not real good. Nose smelled like sour bread. Appearance was typical stout. Flavor was smokey but not complex. The peat flavors were not as good as one would expect out of an islay scotch, they were muted by the beer, and the beer was entirely covered up by the cask. This was the worst of both worlds, where each component messed up the brew. The palate and the appearance give this beer an inflated score. The flavor was not that good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Profumo intensamente affumicato e torbato. Note di caffè tostato e alcoliche. il luppolo erboso è un sottofondo, non punge. Nera con riflessi rosso rubino, schiuma color cappuccino ampia e meno cremosa di quello che si aspetterebbe. Gusto caldo, deciso, torbato avvolgente. é delicata, con un finale lungo una carbonatazione medio bassa, non troppo corposa e calda/alcolica. Buona ma non eccelsa.

Got it in a bottle. Pitch black color with not much of a head. Aroma is full of whiskey, peat, and smoke. Same for the taste. Beer is nice and balanced.

2011, ik wist van te voren al dat ik deze wss niet zo heel lekker ging vinden, maar hij viel mee, wel een leuk flesje, donkerbruin/zwart bier, met een kleine beige schuimkraag, ruikt en smaakt rokerig, beetje vanille, turf, koffie
