Camons (7614) - 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

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 (1200) - 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.

The_Osprey (3227) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Mar 2015 - 330ml bottled Sep 2012 at 15.2%, red wax. Thick, oily pour. Pitch black with no head. Aroma is sweet with whisky smoke, some booze, vegetable stock. Body is medium, smooth, touch of carbonation. Taste is semisweet, rounded molasses-like malt, some smokey whisky, warming booze, soft understated peat, salty finish, enduring whisky mustiness. A bit on the sweet side for my taste, but a very nice flavour nonetheless. Drinking well, but could potentially improve for a couple more years.

skortila (4826) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2015
Bottled. 7sept 2012. The aroma has moderate peat, roast, chocolate. Black coloured beer with a thin and diminishing, beige head. The taste is moderate bitter, bit sweet, has roast, some medicin/peat (not overwhelming) chocolate. Medium-full body. Good example of just the right amount of peated whisky barrel aging.

HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2015
Dark, oily black colour. Complex and full body. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malts, smoke and some sweetness. Whisky. Enjoyable if you are into sippers

Bottle, 2,5 years old, filled to the edge. Black oily pour, no head. Aroma of peat, coffee and chocolate. Taste has peat, smoke, ash, roasted malt, coffee, oat, red fruit, some vanilla and a warm boozy finish. Wow, rich and powerful beer. Bit too alcoholic, but very tasty.
