@ bbf 12, my first consumption, as firtst costumor, just to say how much i expected from this one.. rather very dissapointing, it tastes VERY peated, almost nothing else. if they used another beer than hel en verdoemenis , i wouldn(’t have tasted it... drinkable but dissapointing...

On tap at Borefts beer festival, de Molen, day two. Pours almost black with a thin tan head. Shares many of the traits of the regular Hel & Verdoemenis but somewhat less balanced.

Draft @ BBF’12
On the the highlights of BBF this year! Black beer with brown head. Aroma is very peaty, with iodium and whiskey. Taste is even more peaty, again iodium. Bit medicinal. Some chocolate there as well. Dry, full body. Great!!!

Borresteijn (4677) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2012
On tap at BBF’12. I guess they used Bunnahabhain Toiteach, because this was one big peat monster. Anyway, really nice to see this whisky barrel used for H&V. Black colour, thin beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malts, loads of peat, earth, iodine, sweet whisky, chocolate. Flavour is sweet, earth, peat, light ash, light iodine, sweet whisky, chocolate, hard roasted malts, peaty finish. Medium to full-bodied. Great.

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 29, 2012
Deep dark body and brown head. Alcoholic aroma, roasted coffee, bourbon, dry cacao, concentrated. Rich flavour, alcohol and enough bitterness still. Refined sweetness. Great stuff. Thanks Menno/John! Also had on tap at Borefts 2012. Even more alcohol and wiskey aromas. Too much for me. No.
