@ Ölkväll och bryggning i Källna. Väldigt mycket rök, både i doften och smaken. I doften finns även lite syrliga toner. Smakar som en Islay-whisky precis när man får in den i munnen, men sedan saknas naturligtvis whiskyns alkoholsmak och kraft. Lite spritig är den ändå i smaken. God och spännande, men det räcker med ett glas.

gEUS (1055) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2013
330 ml bottle at home - bottled 5/09/2012. Pours pitch black with a small lingering head, beige.Aroma of vanilla, slight peat, dark chocolate, soy sauce, candi Sugar. Medium body, no carbonation, lots of alcohol heat, taste is a mix of varnish and green paprica. Original hel & verdoemenis is gone. Hmmm, okay I guess, certainly not the best BA version of H&V.

ansalon (1391) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2013
Pours absolutely pitch black. Aroma is pure peat. Peat with some vanilla and liquorice flavors along with some honey. Taste is also peat. Present also charred wood, tar, roasted malts, honey, vanilla. Perhaps a bit much on the peaty side objectively, but for someone who just loves peated single malts this sits just fine!

vipinvelp (2191) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2013
Black with small light brown foam ring. Aroma is very smokey, like a old wet cigar, taste is likewise, very smokey. Little bitter. Strong aftertaste. (Velp 201310) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pinball (10844) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2013
bottle from ølbutikken. pitch dark, small brown head. tar, wood, islay peat smoke, roasted malts, islay whisky in the aroma. head peat smoked roast dominates, some wood too, and then roasted malts. Well rounded and delicate is not really the words that pop up in My mind when sniffing this... but it’s lovely. flavor is wood, roasted malts, tar, charred wood. flavors from the barrel and the peat whisky has taken over almost entirely, leaving not much room for the now seemingly mild and no so potent imp. stout. reminds me in some ways of some of the brewdog paradox series.

RasmusOtt (1114) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Pours black with a dark espresso head. Aroma is smokey with burnt sugar, burnt malts, woolen sweaters, used robes, pirate-like maritime, tobacco and the regular HV behind. Taste is peat, smoke and rather dry with notes of tobacco, roasted/burnt malts, savory, earthy and with lots of coffee, salmiak and other qualities from the regular HV. I actually like the balance in this. Interesting barrel!

Vestergaard (372) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Pitch black. Light brown fluffy head. Smells like ocean, burned sugar, lots of smoke and peat, and some of the same caramelly notes you get from smoked barrels. Taste is pretty dry at first. Really really peaty. Truly another direction of beer than the bourbon barrel aged versions, but this is in my opinion a better execution. The smoke blends really well with the beer despite being quite strong. I am still not that much into smoked beer, but this definitely makes sense to me!

Un magnifique assemblage de saveurs entre l impérial stout extraordinaire et le barriqué whisky superbement fumé

Bottle in Ølbutikken. Dry with some sweetness. Loads of peat aromas with some dark malts and hints of alcohol and crayfish. Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry finish.
