En stor besvikelse. Luktar och smakar som ett askfat dagen efter eller som en dammig värmefläkt som överhettats. Rökigt och beskt utan en kropp som håller ihop det. Troligtvis betydlig bättre om något år då beskan rundats av.

Bottle given as I graduated my master thesis, shared with Plovmand. It pours hazy mahogany with a tan head. Didn’t expect this at all! Smoked whisky, caramel, raisin and fruits in the nose that get even better as it gains temp. Flavour is smoked whiskey, caramel, pine and fruity hops. Different in a good way and very interesting! :)

Bottle. Thanks Anker for sharing! The beer pours almost clear amber with a creamy off white head. The aroma is truly Laphroig whisky with notes of peat, smoke and then a strange note of hops that makes it quite different from other smoke barleys I had but I really like it! The flavour is heavy peaty and truly Laphroig like with notes of sweet caramel, sweet malt and some hops. A true Islay Barley Wine. I like this ALOT!

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2011 AROMA: hay, smoke, raisin, hint of alcohol, whisky, wood, WOW APPEARANCE: dark brown, clear, frothy head that disappears. TASTE: light sweetness, lightly bitter, umami PALATE: full body, sticky, lively, long finish filled with smoke OVERALL: this is a complex beer, very well put together as very strong aromas are balanced out (the smokiness from Laphroig is quite pronounced). Very strong, but the alcohol is well hidden.

Sampled at CBF11 Clear amber. Tan head. Loads of smokiness; leather. Some notes of chlorine. Light bitterness.

Draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Brune foncée allant sur l’ambrée, col beige. Arôme houblons américain et zélandais, agrumes léger, le tout avec qcq fruits noirs; date et figue. Neslon Sauvin est modéré et le profile de ce raisin blanc est en retrait avec le côté tourbe et cendre du whisky Laphroig. En bouche, on reconnaît de suite cette influence de Brewdog avec un profile tourbe et charbon cendré du whisky dans la lignée des Islay. Ce dernier ajoute une belle tournure à une bière donnant un léger profile houblonné, d’agrumes et pamplemousse. Malt est présent donna tune pointe de chocolat et grains, sucre brun et caramel avec le houblon en retrait, et encore cette tourbe qui pointe son nez. Le Nelson Sauvin y est présent quoique le volume de cette bière ainsi que l’ajout de ce malt fumé font que les qualités de ce houblon s’en retrouvent être trop en retrait. On discerne néanmoins des pointes de raisins blanc mais qui pour moi auraient été plus justifiées dans une IPA. Bière osée, et dont malheureusement le style Islay ne me fait pas accrocher à cette collaboration entre ces deux brasseries.

Sigmund (5726) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2011
330 ml bottle, batch # 096(?, print unclear), Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 11.5%. Chestnut colour, large cream-coloured head. Medium strong aroma of peat-smoked malts, not much else comes through. The flavour is medium sweet with notes of peat smoke and ashes, moderate hops in the finish. A bit one-dimensional. Why the heck must a delicate hop like Nelson Sauvin fight an impossible battle with Laphroaig peat-smoked malts?

Bottle from Euston Tap. Pours dark copper brown with a stable head. Intense caramel, smoked malts, iodine as well as tropical fruits. Laphroig leads the way in the mouth with some smoothing caramel. A new style is born.

kryon (1884) - SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2011
Pours copper brown with a thick head A distinct aroma of smoky islay cask, raisins, brown sugar and hints of sour fruits. The oaky and smoky flavor is there. I would say more oak than smokyness in taste. Very bitter ending. The 11.3 % alcohol level is actually not very present which is a big plus.A very special beer. One of the better barley wines I´ve had.

Bottle enjoyed at home in a nosing glass.
I’m really excided to try this beer. Brewdog is one of the portals of my beer fascinations and FFF i’ve only read and heard of but they’re legends - so what can they make together?

The beer pours a dark redish brown topped with an amazing tanned head. Really neat. Aroma has ripe fruits and peaty smoke. Taste confirms the smoke and peat. Pow, smokorama! Peat, smoke and tar. Good malt characters known to barleywines and nice sweetness. Alcohol is very good hidden. Feel is quite oily as should be. Nice. The finish has power hop bitterness from nelson that is quite grassy. Very interesting indeed that the smoke dominates totally at first but then lets the grass bitterness to overtake and dominate. Some herb notes apply. Very nice BW - very scottish indeed
