Bottle at home, 20th March 14, pours black, small head. Aroma, molasses, black treacle, whiskey and peat. Taste is peat, barrel, whiskey salty liquorice. Quite whiskey forward, but not as much as the Bowmore. Better balanced than Bowmore, but not as balanced as others in the series

ShivanDragon (1796) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2014
zwart bier met minimale bruine kraag aroma komt al snel binnen als een enorme turf/veen/teer lucht. De alcohol is ook zeer duidelijk aanwezig. is ook te vergelijken met de lucht van een bruine rol tape die je gebruikt om verband af te hechten. maar over het algemeen is het té overheersend. smaken zijn matig zoet, licht bitter, zeer sterke smaken van ... jawel een mega turf/veen, hout en leder. wel vol van body, romig en glad in de mond, maar ik vind deze versie niet zo bijzonder. het basisbier wordt door deze variant volledig naar de achtergrond verdreven door de enorme turf/veen smaken. de whisky, chocolade zijn in de achtergrond wel aanwezig evenals de geroosterde- en gebrande mouten. heeft ook wel iets weg van een natte sigaar :( complexiteit valt tegen.

50belair (2488) - Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Hopscotch. Dark brown pour with no real head. Smoke and peaty aromas. Smoke and salt water notes. Soy sauce undercurrents. Bad mouthfeel. Decent body. No bueno señor.....

PriorL (1989) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle (5/9/2012), tasted blind together with some other H&V variants. Shared with Mathieu87. APPEARANCE: pitch black beer, small stable beige head. NOSE: whiskey, peated. TASTE: whiskey, peated, too much! The beer is made really nicely, but it’s not my kind of taste.

KennethArd (256) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2014
Deep smokey aroma. Black with small brown head. The taste is also very smokey with salty liquorice & black chocolate. Medium body, oily texture & low carbonation.

TET (1756) - FINLAND - FEB 19, 2014
A black beer with a medium and yelloish brown head. Strong peat and slightly smoky aromas, also roastiness and liquirice. Taste of salt liquirice, nice sweetness, herbal bitterness. Barrel and peat but these aren’t so strong as in the aroma. Full bodied, low carbonation, slippery. Strong peat and the barrel is too dominating. Not so good as the great normal Hel & Verdoemenis, unfortunately.

Diep zwarte kleur met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt iets peated, rook, koffie, vanille. Smaakt vol, hout, rook, koffie, vanille. Lekker.
