Marko (4068) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 7, 2008
RBESG08 grand tasting.
Pale yellow body, filtered. White head. Whiskey and smoked ham in the nose. Taste... ash, dirt, smoke. Some hops show up for a second and then are gone. A failed experiment I guess.

ekstedt (5636) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2008
Sampled at the RSBEG08 grand tasting. Clear golden with medium white head. Disgusting smoked smell, I really love Islay Whiskys but this is just weird.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle with TimE at Bulldog pub in Tokyo. Given as a free gift from owner. Cool. Batch #1. Small to no head. Peat in the aroma from the barrel. Very interesting for some bonus points even though it is not that good.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Bottle at Chris_O’s 19th April 2008 tasting. Clear light blond appearance but a heady, ultra-peaty whisky aroma. In the mouth, you’ve got the same great Islay peat flavours combined with hefty hopping, which leads to a long, smoky finish. A very interesting beer and one that can be pretty divisive - don’t expect to agree with your friends on whether it is any good!

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2008
Courtesy of Mes @ WSF. Clear golden with tiny white head. Smoky and viniuos with notes of hops, caramel, whisky and grapefruit.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 6, 2008
Bottle, thanks a lot Mes for sharing! Clear, blond body. Complex aroma of spices, medicijen cabinet. Quite weird aroma but nice anyway, in its own way ... Heavily bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Heavily bitter finish. The flavour is just very incoherent, it makes no sense at all, but I wouldn’t call it bad at all, just one big WTF?

Bov (9815) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 courtesy of Laurent Mousson - clear bronze colour with a little persistent white foam; robust fruity hoppy nose, estery and with a touch of wood; quite oily, solid malt body, very bitter and dry aftertaste showing solid notes of gentian - subtle and very original

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 Bottle. Clear yellow coloured with a snall white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, butterscotsch and hops. Flavour of malts, caramel, smoke, hops and grape fruits. Dry hoppy finish. Not very fond of the combination of IPA and cask aged whisky.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle from Magic Dave, thanks! Heavy aroma of peated malt. This beer must be firmly hopped, but apart from some grass the oak, peat and iodine flavors totally overpower all other flavors and aromas. The balance may be totally gone, but this beer is absolutely delicious.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2008
Bottle@SpontaneousWeekend08. Very peaty and idione aroma. Golden color, white head, fair lace. Very very peaty, bitter, iodine, some malts. Very dry mouthfeel. This is too much and doesn’t go well with a ipa imo. Still thanks Mes!
