Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, - NOV 18, 2012
Tap, pours a nice black, with a nice froathy head, aroma is a nice dark roasty, maybe a little bit of whiskey/scotchy. The flavour is a nice roasty.petty, the flavour of the barrel aging as it warms and becomes some what rough around the edges. Overall, pretty decent.

sjogro (2089) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2016
At Maakun’s. Maakun’s share. Black with thin tan head. Roasted chocolate malts, alcoholic, peated, whiskey, toffee. Medium sweet, light bitter. Medium body, (chocolate) milky texture, no carbonation. Bit boozy and unbalanced in regard to the barrel aging, still nice though.

Maakun (2867) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Black with small bubbly light brown head. Earthy, peat, coffee, dead leaves, miso, hay, cocoa powder. Light sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. The barrel is a bit too much here, slightly disappointing.

Marduk (5380) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 26, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Very dark brown color. Small size, brown head, stays as a ring. Roast, peanuts, biscuits, malty, sunflower oil, bit of peat in aroma. Smoked peat, bit ashy, roasted, oily, peanuts and bit of toffee in taste. Ashy roast and oily peanuts in aftertaste. Oily and ashy mouthfeel. Rough, but nice. Excellent brew.

FatPhil (12760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 25, 2016
330ml bottle - bottled 2013/07 - at 11%
Nice peanutty aroma, but with a nice dry smoky aspect. Black, small tan head. Rich palate, smooth, very full, lovely soft carbonation. Really deep roast, but not harsh. Lovely dry smoky whisky too, at the fore, dominant even, but not aggressive. Lovely sipper, managed to stretch it out over a very long time, and was sad to have it end. Finish smoky, as per taste, just stretches the taste out nicely. Bye bye, so long :-{

markextrae (3199) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2016
sample from bottle, murky dark brown to black colour with a tanned head on top. nose of bitter chocolate, roasted noats, salty licorice, charred oak, smoke, and salted peat smoke, pretty heavy on the peat notes. masks te base beer pretty much

bytemesis (6139) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle thanks to MrH! Pours dark black, small brown head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Nose is hella smoky, peat, light roast. Flavor is the same, super peaty with a light stout roast peaking through. YOu would have to love peaty scotch to dig this one. Medium light body. Disappointing in terms of how much of the base beer is lost in the peat.

stouby (4334) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear black with a small light tan head. Aromas heavy malty (caramel, roasted, licorice, heavy smoked whisky and barrel, notes of cherries). Flavor lots of alcohol, smoke, wood, licorice. Almost full body, quite flat.

12oz bottle pours a murky, dark brown with some clumpy, brown head. Nose has peaty scotch, salted peanuts, molasses, smoke. Flavor is rubber band, black pepper, tire fire. Smokey/salty finish. Too much.
