Une bouteille embouteillée le 5 septembre 2012. Une bière brune qui ne fit pas de mousse. Un nez de laboratoire médical, ils ont échappé le pot de teinture d’iode quand ils ont fait le test de conversion des sucres lors du «mash». Une bouche tout aussi en iode. J’aime cette offre que je qualifierais de «spécial».

33 cl. Un liquide brun foncé embouteillé le 5 septembre 2012. Un anneau de mousse à grosses bulles s’accroche tant bien que mal sur la paroi du verre. Un nez excentrique de tourbe fumée avec un parfum fort de bord de mer et de copeaux de cèdre humide. Le goût est bizarre avec ses notes de sauce soya enfumées par un bois humide et une tourbe salée. La sensation en bouche est bien intéressante. Le liquide a un beau corps impérial. La texture est liquoreuse. En finale, la fumée est envahissante, bien terreuse et bien capable de faire grimacer mon visage. Difficile à boire. Définitivement pas pour moi.

tom10101 (4528) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on July 9th 2013. Black with a small diminishing brown head and no lacing. Aroma is heavily peat/whisky forward (not too harsh) with smoked malt and roasted malt. Taste is also heavily peated with whisky, smoke, roasted malt and dark chocolate. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Sticky peated finish. Somewhat dry too. Decent complexity despite being peat forward. Balance isn’t bad considering it’s aged n Bunnahabhain barrels. Quite tasty for sure. Not the best from the H&V series, but definitely interesting.

MarcoDL (3404) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2014
Aroma almost knocked me of my feet, strong stuff. Taste is strong as well. Body of all different malts, with a stark note of peated whiskey. Some smoke as well.

yngwie (16065) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. A dark , dark brown beer, unclear, and topped by a small, dark beige head. Roasted, lightly bonfire-ish aroma with some iodine and a good dash of peat. Chololate and booze, coffee grit, charcoal and licorice. It’s full-bodied and quite warming, still feeling a bit watery. Roasted, burnt and peated flavor with some raisin notes, licorice and bonfire. Peated, roasted finish with some raisins. Too much peat and charcoal going on, I prefer the original even though this one’s good too. 140420

Taste is sweet, sticky and mildly peaty with some stingy whisky notes, wood and mild smokiness. Finish is warming, sweetish and stingy with pungent whisky notes and syrup. A bit unbalanced barrel aged IS.
