Black with a dark brown head - Strong aroma of peated malt - Strong flavour of peasted malt with some hint of wood - Long lasting peated malt finish - In my taste this was a little bit over the top with peat, but it was still ok

Leighton (11860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Colin. Pours black-brown with a creamy, tan head. Heavy peat in the aroma with some chocolate, modest roast, dark fruits. Medium sweet flavor with rich, intense smoke, burnt bacon, earth. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Fairly chewy. Warming on the finish with lasting peat, smoke, black pepper, scorched earth, light cocoa. Pretty OK, if a bit heavy on the peat.

angel77 (1092) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUL 2, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de zombier, tomada en junio de 2013. Embotellada el 07-09-2012 para 25 años. Color negro con espuma oscura. Aromas y sabores intensos de maltas tostadas con cafés y chocolates y final de maderas empapadas en licor, suaves y no muy pronunciado. Cuerpo medio a fuerte con unos impresionantes 15.2 vol que le dan una muy buena sensación de licor. Para repetir de nuevo sin duda, muy buena.
