Christian (12205) - 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

GothGargoyle (1952) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2014
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 (3569) - 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 (1766) - 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.

ShivanDragon (2793) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2014
zwart bier met minimale bruine kraag, aroma wat redelijk is, caramouten, gebrande mouten, zoet en de whisky komen door. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, licht bitter, zeer sterk, redelijk moutig van oa de geroosterde en de gebrande mouten. medium tot volle body, glad in de mond, stevig alcoholisch, aardig maar over het algemeen valt deze mij een beetje tegen.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
> Volatile but successful Islay Scotch and coffee version of this classic

[ Bottle ][ Etre Gourmet ][ 33cl ][ $20 ][ Woodshop Snifter ][ 3/22/14 ]
>> Pours clear sepia, weak but present yellowish foam. Tahnkfully not flat like some other H&V BA variants. Nose is muted smoke, savory meat, coffee, real maple syrup, brown alcohol. Assertive. Taste is bitter coffee, rich dark chocolate, no sugary sweetness or tomato, spicy, coffee liquor..Kahlua. Low formaldehyde style "smoke" from the Islay Scotch barrel that has ruined many a beer. Slightly anesthetic. Powerful espresso bitterness. Pretty nice one overall, successful. As it gets flat and warms up, the formaldehyde takes over only with more soil. Not really drinkable anymore.

>!< Don’t allow the carbonation to die and oxidize, low carbonation, formaldehyde is retrained but breaks through as it warms
