(backlog 2013, post BBf, País 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.

caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Bottled from Mitra Bunnik, batch Sept 2013, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Almost clear dark brown color, short frothy head. Aroma of some chocolate and dark malts, slight spicy yeast, and quite a lot peaty ardbeg whisky. Slight sweet in taste, bit dry. Ardbeg overpowers the base beer quite a lot, without being harsh and dry peated, though it is still a lot of peat. Basebeer is apparently not powerful enough to carry the dominating peat. Ok stuff, but I think the Ardbeg fits stronger imperial stouts better.

Bottle. Aroma is peaty, smoke, medicinal, earthy, gobo. Interesting, boozy, smoke, and all the rest. Slightly sweet black treacle.

TimE (3191) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2014
Uber over the top peaty nose. Licking an ashtray in a smokerís compartment in a train, while someone cooks meat over charcoal would be much more subtle than this. The base beer is totally lost. The mouth is equally a shit with some sweet malt, but fuck that. Gross, unbalanced and pretty much undrinkable.

Habanero (2624) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2014
Bottled. Pours clear, deep amber with a small, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, wood, chocolate, caramel, dried fruit and whiskey notes, Sweet flavor that ends up dry with some bitterness. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carb. An excellent brew.

Pinball (10845) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2014
cloudy brown, smooth brown and white head. bottle was slighlty gushing. strong aroma of peat, booze, and roasted malts. flavor is roasted malts, peat smoked, wood, sweet notes, bitterness from wood and malts. good smoked strong ale, but you have to like peat smoked beer.

Gerbeer (1787) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
660 ml bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with moderate head. Aromas of peat and sweet roasted malts. Flavors of grassy peat, dark caramel, and sweet malts. Full. Hot for the ABV. Not as smokey as I expected (a good thing).

Abijen (1481) - ís-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Pours a brown slightly unclear beer with a lots of yeast and a good tan head. Smells light peated. Tastes peated, roasted and a bit flat. Low carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

Desverger (2095) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2014
Bottle@Yesprs - cloudy fussy brown pour with a beige head. Roasted malty, caramel, dark dried fruits, light smoke and peat, wooden nuance, light spice in the finish. Nice.
