66 cl. split side by side with the Peated version courtesy of Dylan/Kraddel // obtained in a trade thx. to Tinus // Peated one is absolutely round, sweet honey-like especially next to this one, way different from what I remember it being // wrapped in a red giftwrapping paper just like its brethren // only the Ardberg sticker differentiating it & obviously the impossible to mistake with anything else taste // dark brown, touches of black, tanned head // smell encompasses all of the idiosyncratic-ness of this kinds of beers, it is pure medicinal, this belongs in a freaking medicinal cabinet not in a glass, does this disinfect? pure Islay medicinal smell and oh yeah it is peated as well, some malt underneath there as well, it draws you in // taste is sweet soft chcolate malts, milk chocolate sweetness, soft milk chocolate intertwining with medicinal Ardberg, creamy, touch berries, base beer despite or regardless of the thick medicinal Ardberg layer is still very clear, soft ripe dark fruits // smooth and damn creamy // I have been critical of these kinds of beer, despite the heavy whiskey this is excellent and I cannot stop drinking it & it is not only yummy but it is weird also, def bonus // recommended - favorite version so far.

Martinus (4548) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2012
Clear dark brown colour, red hue, firm cream head. Smoky aroma, peat, chocolate, vanilla, cacao and lots of Ardbeg. Light sweet malty flavour, light astringent, wood, Islay whisky, bay leaves and liquorice. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Smoky finish, wood, Islay, dark chocolate and liquorice.
Very in-your-face Islay character, while still maintaining a sophisticated balance. I love it!
(From 66cL bottle @ a wood aged beer tasting)

Strong aroma of pest. Tastes smokey, roasted and with a glowing impressionisme of whiskey. Very good.

Bosbouw (2694) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 Troebele chcoladebruine kleur met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt vol, peated van de whisky, vanille, hout en gerookt. Smaakt vol en zacht. Duidelijke maar subtiele whisky smaak, peated, vanille, gerookt, fruit. Goede alcohol nasmaak. Erg goed.

Bottle 66cl. Pitch black with a beige head. Strong peatded nose with hints of iodine. Extreme strong taste of peat. This is a beer which you either love or dislike. For me this works great. Very long finish.

rikstar (2308) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2013
0,66l fles gedeeld met Bryanvdv. Wat een prachtig bier om tte zien en te ruiken. Prachtig diep donkerbruin bier met bezinksel en veel gist. Volle bruine schuimkraag. In de geur gerookte whisky, geroosterde mout. Subtiele start met gebrande mout, peated whisky die rustig opkomt, mooi body er gebeurt veel in de mond. Tikje prikkelend, klein beetje CO2.ook iets medicinaal.

Almost black in color, small light brown head. Smells like Ardbeg, really peated smell that overpowered the smell of the dark beer. The taste is a hard one to describe, much much going on, the taste of the peaty smoky Ardbeg is very recognizable, the beer adds a camaral sweet taste, also a bit of a port taste as it’s a aged beer. This beer is something special, someone who doesn’t like Islay whisky will not like this beer as much.
