heman (171) - Tychy, POLAND - DEC 28, 2014
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 słodw palonych. Od pierwszych łykw 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.

Bosbouw (1872) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Mooie zwarte kleur met weinig schuimkraag. Volle geur van koffie en chocolade. Goede volle peated smaak en een koffie tint. Iets alcohol nasmaak.

Vaiz (3817) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Pitch black pour, thin tan head. Aroma is roasted, vanilla, peat, leather, slightly burnt malts, licorice, tar and loads of whisky. Flavor is very bitter, burnt and roasted, but still remarkably smooth. Thick body, very low carbonation and quite silky. Great brew.
