Draft at De Molen tasting. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet with roasted malts, some whiskey and not much alcohol surprisingly. Taste is sweet with roasted malts, whiskey and molasses.

Holmen1 (3652) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2015
Fra flaske ombord på Fridtjofen (RBHD!) aug-15: åpner lydløst. Ut fra denne lydløse flasken siger en brunsvart væske helt uten skum seg ned i glassene, og vi venter andektig. Kraftig viskøs smak med mye torvrøyte whiskytoner, vanilje og noe kaffe og mørke bær. Samme i aroma. Kompleks og de luxe velsmakende selv uten karbonering.En flott nightcap, superfed og blød.

abemorsten (3266) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2015
Svart og tyktflytende. Deilig aroma med toner av peated islay whiskey. Svart kropp uten skum. Kraftig tørvrøykte smaker på toppen av masse malt. Kraftig fylde, flat og myk. Delt 0,33 l flaske på RBHD-samling på Fridtjoffen, august 2015.

Shared bottle at RB/HD on board Fridtjofen 23.08.15. Ebony. A few brown bubbles constituting a head. Aroma of whiskey, dark malt and burnt print cards. Lots of whiskey, peat and burnt print cards in taste. No carbonation. Very smooth. Excellent aftertaste.

gunnar (6631) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2015
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours black with a thin head. Aroma of peated malts, loaded with malts and whisky. Oily thick mouthfeel. Taste is thick malty, lovely round peated, lingering goodies, very good.

Sigmund (5800) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2015
Shared 330 ml bottle. Black colour, no head, no carbonation. Aroma and flavour of Islay Scotch whisky, strong notes of peat smoke and iodine. I have yet to like a beer aged in very peated whisky cask, and this one did not make me happy either. The lack of carbonation was also off-putting.

Camons (7787) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle @ Christers. Pours pitch black with a very small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, salty licorice, peat, whisky, wood, little dark fruit, alcohol. Flavor is malts, caramel, peaty, smoke, wood, whisky, licorice, some alcohol. Medium body, soft carbonation, alcohol well hidden for the ABV, but shows with a little warmth. 250615

saxo (14997) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle. No head. Color is black. Aroma and taste are peat, tar, roast malt, chocolate, alcohol, smoke, wood and has a nice oily palate. Nice beer, but wrong barrel... I am not a fan of Bowmore.

tdtm82 (1260) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle; sourced by my beer fairy. Beige lacing on the edge of the glass. Opaque. Aroma is off the scale Bowmore, chocolate, marzepan, oak, leather, grains, blackcurrants, Motor oil. Tar. Taste is blackcurrants, black liquorice, leather, peat, Bowmore, amazingly not TCP, chocolate, Belgian truffles, cream, marzepan and slight vanilla. Stunning. One of my favourites.
