Maakun (1072) - The Hague, - MAR 14, 2014
Deep black with small tan head. Light smoke, thick chocolate, espresso, tart berries, vanilla, wood, nuts, tiny hint of wasabi and chili. Big sweetness with tartness in the middle and burnt bitter finish. Thick, syrupy body, light carbonation. Massive beer!

hopscotch (9893) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle... Pours black with dark brown highlights and no head. The nose presents burnt, caramelized fudge and a big splash of peaty, smoky liquor. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is charred, bitter, alcoholic and peaty, accompanied by espresso and tobacco smoke. There’s a small ration of cardboard-like oxidation here. Boozy, smoky, charred finish. Bottle courtesy of MrHangover!

Piwo bombarduje nas potężnym aromatem odleżanego, starego, dębowego drewna i torfu. Zapach jest przepotężny! Nie kojarzy się wprost z dymem, a raczej z suszonym torfem. Z każdą chwilą coraz bardziej dają o sobie znać charakterystyczne zapachy kojarzące się z bandażem, szpitalem i płynem do dezynfekcji u dentysty ;) Dopiero gdzieś w tle ujawniają się muśnięcia czekolady i słodów palonych. Od pierwszych łyków piwo porywa nas swą złożonością. Jest wyraźnie słodkie i czekoladowe, ze smakami drewna - jakbym dźwiakał klepkę dębową, maczaną w słodkiej czekoladzie. Pełne, gęste i oleiste z wyraźnie alkoholowym finiszem, ale szlachetnym w swej postaci. Każdy łyk pozostawia w ustach posmak czekoladowych pralinek najwyższej klasy z nadzieniem z torfowej whisky.

Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Opaque black beer with a small beige/brownish head. Roasted coffee and whisky aroma, peated, vanilla, licorice, dark chocolate, cocoa notes, caramel, nuts, leather notes, some raisins and figs. Roasted peated whisky aroma, grassy, dark chocolate, caramel, licorice, cocoa, raisins, vanilla, biscuits, hazel nits, some leather. Alcohol is well hidden. Great way of adding peated whisky to an Impy.

Overpowering beer. Intense taste of strong roasted malt, peat, a bit smoke and, surprisingly, some bitterness. Aftertaste of coffee and whisky. Nice.

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!
