Probado en Animal de Madrid. Cerveza de color oscuro, con una espuma beige de persistencia media. Sabor marcado a madera, turba y chocolate amargo. Algo excesiva me gustó más la versión original. Retrogusto largo, con toques de madera y humo.

33cl bottle at home. Pitch black with a tiny tan head. Full body with low carbonation. Smokey sweetness with some bitter tones. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso, whiskey, oak, vanilla, lots of peat and spices. Quite heavy on the peat, but still a very nice IRS.

Flaska Bishop Arms Gustav Adolfs Torg i Malmö (vilket utbud. Flera vintage!! BA i GBG ligger efter) Fantastisk arom, nästan svart! Tyvärr rumstemperatur , annars hade den nog varit ännu bättre om några grader kallare. Vilken lång rökig eftersmak!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

androman (1137) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2015
33cl bottle at home from de Molen, Bodegraven. Body is pitch black, head is very small, beige, creamy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Nose is smoke, flavor is coal, roasted peanuts, smoked cheese, old wood. Medium to heavy bitter, medium umami, light salt. Finish is long lasting smoky, roasty medium bitter, alcohol is totally hidden. Full body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. Not too heavy, extreme aroma, not delicious but interesting.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle... Pours cloudy and dark brown with no head. Great peat smoke and fudge aroma. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The flavor is crazy-sweet and peaty with alcohol bitterness and warmth, but no scorching alcohol heat. Unfortunately, there is some cardboard here. Finishes sweet, peaty and warming with an unfortunate cardboard aftertaste. Everything is great here except the annoying, overbearingly sweet, peat smoke flavor. Bottle courtesy of MrHangover!

Bov (10914) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 20, 2015
from Erzbierschof - black beer under a modest foam left; a fair peated whisky aroma with notes of caramel, roasted coffee and black cherries; full-bodied, thick and with a low carbonation; fairly sweet and with a late but solid bitterness; decently dry and very peated whisky and chocolatey aftertaste with a warming alcohol presence

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 16, 2015
330 ml bottle courtesy of Benzai. Thanks. Pours an opaque black color with a small tan head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma is strong with peat smoke and chocolates. The flavor, like the aroma, is strong with peat and dark baking chocolate. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry. Overall: Loved it.
