A- pours an opaque mahogany black with lighter cola brown edges and virtually no head or lacing. S- wonderful strong peat and iodine. Charcoal (from cedar), chocolate, vinyl, bandaids, dried oats, smoked malts, fatty bacon, tobacco. Most of the aroma is overwhelmed by the peat. M- medium oily body with a full tangy and smokey palate. Low carbonation. T- similar to aroma. Some vinyl, chocolate, dirt, vegetal notes and charcoal first. Mild vanilla. Peat and iodine are strong again in the middle. Some salt and seared steak. Ending is slightly bitter and has a mild aftertaste. Zinc is strong with some grass, toothpaste-esque mint and cacao. Acorn meal. O- smoke is so strong but underlying notes make an effort.

Bottle bought at Bierkoning. Appearance: Very dark brown, with a thin beige head which diminishes quickly. Aroma: vanilla, chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and a bit of smoke. Taste: very sweet and chocolatey. Coffee, milk and caramel. Smokey aftertaste with some milk. Big body, not so much carbonation. Love it!

Bottle (330 ml). Black with a medium thick quickly diminishing beige head and no lacing. Aroma is dominated by Bowmore (peat, iodine) along some wood and light chocolate notes. Taste is also very Bowmore forward with a tons of peat and iodine, chocolate notes, alcohol and light molasses. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Liquorous mouthfeel. That’s the most Islay forward beer I have ever tried. Balance is average at best. It’s still fun to drink.

Christian (11893) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2014
At Borefts Beer Festival 2013. Black with a tiny tan head. Roasted aroma with licorice and a touch of peat smoke. Sweet roasted flavour with licorice, and peat and tar in the finish. Even H&V can be ruined by peat smoke

Back with a good beige head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, smoke, leather, oak, peat. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, sweet and smoky on the palate with a long smoky finish. The smoke blends well, adding a nice campfire character to the beer. Taste is dark fruits, smoke, coffee, leather, sandalwood.

Habanero (3339) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 26, 2014
Bottled. Pours opaque black with a tan, medium sized and creamy head. Malty nose of bitter chocolate, vanilla and peat. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with alcohol. Full bodied, oily texture and flat carbonation. A delicious Impy.

rikstar (1548) - NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2014
Prachtig bier zwart en praktisch zonder schuim met bruine gistdeeltjes aroma met gist, brood kersen en ook de peat. Smaak is heerlijk vol, toch iets fruitiger dan je zou verwachten nice.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
Bouteille de 33 cl. Arômes de tourbe, d’iode et de malt chocolatés. Robe brune foncée, légèrement translucide, effervescence faible et aucune mousse. En bouche, le scotch (tourbe, iode) est relativement à l’avant-plan, mais un certain équilibre demeure avec la base maltée. Belle notes chocolatées et de réglisse. Corps moyen pour le style. Finale maltée et alcoolisée. Intéressant.
