Bottle. Trade with Kermis. Thanks. Pours black with a small creamy head. Heavy peated nose with a touch of salty liquorice beaneath. Flavor is peat - ashtray and leather. Vinous and slick. Base beer is genius - this is defenetly not one for me.

Aroma is nice with peaty notes, smoke and hints of licorice. Flavour has salty licorice, peaty notes and smoke. Quite strong on islay whisky and almost nothing else. Some stinging alcohol (or whisky) also occurs.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
330 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a black colour with a small head. Aroma is really intense with roasted malts, peat, tar and whiskey. Flavour of roasted malts, green apples, peat, grassy hops, coffee and some vanilla. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and a long, lingering, peaty, malty finish. Heavy stuff indeed - if you don’t like Islay, this beer isn’t for you.

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2013
bouteille 33cl, bottled 05-09-2012. Noire, col fin café au lait laissant un filament doré au verre. Arôme de barrique, boisé avec tourbe qui domine ici aussi tout le bouquet pour un tourbé typique. Palais est ici aussi tourbé à souhait suivi d’un léger boisé, malt caramel, pointe de chocolat sur une pointe épicée. Garde aussi ce profil houblonné léger qui contribue à un ajout moyen d’amertume fleuri et citronné mais qui fait de suite place au tourbé. Palais reste épais, voire sirop avec une note de café sur la fin. Encore une fois, trop tourbé pour moi et qui gâche l’ajout des autres ingrédients.

caesar (5118) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Black color, short fluorescent brown head. Hmm, when I start smelling, I smell the peat. Why am I punishing myself? Because I’m ready for a peaty medicinal whisky BA impy perhaps? Oh right, lets go then! Hit me, hit me hard! Huge thick peaty aroma, smoked, almost impossible to breath through. It is almost choking. I am choking. Do I dare to take a sip? Eyes closed, nose closed, small sip. Thick black oil down my throat. It’s really thick. And dry. And it’s peated and smoked. Ashes. When the smoke and peat fades away, my tongue gets dry. So the alcohol can burn. Medium alcohol burn, fits the style. Ok, I was ready, still it hit me. For a huge mofo peated whisky RIS, it does ok though. I rather be hit with that, than with a weak Belgian style blond. It’s good though there’s a H&V backing up all the peat from the bunnahabahabawhatever, otherwise it would be pure spirit on oak. As some of you know, this is not my favorite style and probably will never be. But sometimes we ratebeerians like the pain. I’m actually enjoying it.

Bullit (4007) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 10, 2013
Bottle @ Rooie Dop brewdungeon. Black colour, tan head. Nose is peaty, roasted malts, and chocolate. Flavour is roasted malts and chocolate, peaty, whisky, slightly alcoholic. The peat is too much present for me.
