Bottle @ tht. Aroma is huge peat, smoke, iodine, liquorice and more. Flavour is roasty liquorice with huge peat, a light hint of sweetness. Very nice.

JulienHuxley (3936) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle at THT. Brown pour with thin ring of white foam. Aroma is very peaty, super smoky, iodine, tons of scotch. Taste is vegetal, salty iodine, smoke. Palate is med full bodied with med carbonation. Decent, but I really think all this peat doesn’t do these beers any good.

kermis (6383) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of massive peat, hospital, completely overpowering any base beer. Flavour is over moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

Poured reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma of peat, dark fruit. Full body, flavour is sweet berries, roast malt. Good example of Whisky aging.

digrod (112) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Pours almost black with foamy white head. Aromas of peat, tar, licorice, and plum. Flavors are the same plus caramel, black pepper, and alcohol. Finish is long, fairly sweet, and smoky. Really nice.

Jeroenhensen (230) - Dongen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2014
Gekocht in Baarle. Een zeer sterke wiskey geur en smaak, maar de afdronk is zeer zacht en subtiel.

Vignale (2380) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2014
Flaska från Beergium. Mycket mörkare än grundölet och totalt förändrat. Maasiv islay karaktär med massor av rökighet i doft och smak. Röklåda, torv, tjära, rökta charkuterier. Aningen sötma med torkad frukt finns under den massiva rökigheten. Häftigt och gillar man Islaywhiskey är den väl helt klockren men samtidigt lite ensidig och fmer rökig än vad grundölet tål.

bartlebier (2410) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2014
(backlog 2013, post BBf, Pa’s Bday treat) bottle 66cl, Geers. Massive amounts of trademark Ardbeg briny peat, outright charred smoke and ash have perched and then infiltrated this gentle Belgian dark ale to the core and made it into an Islay beer. Some plum and underdosed chocolate buried underneath, defenseless yeast subtlety struggling to breathe underneath that ashy oak. Brave and bold barreling experiment that is maybe best left unopened in its beautiful red wrapping paper for a few more years?

I like my Islay malts, but this is full on! Super ashy, treacle like. Some biscuit and toffee as well as stewed fruits but then a raining deluge of ashy residue smashes the tongue. Not nuanced. Fun, but in small doses.
