COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with the most heavily peated malt in the world from the Bruichladdich distillery. Almost pitch black and opaque, small head. Furiously peated aroma, hiding the malt, licorice and dark chocolate somewhat. Very full bodied, thick mouthfeel, like fluid bread. Dark chocolate, loads of peat, lapsang souchong tea, chocolate cake, culminating in an almost endless aftertaste that also has licorice.
Alcohol varies by batch.

Röstmalziges Aroma der Extra-Klasse. Der wenige Schaum auf dem schwarzem Bier ist schnell verschwunden, dennoch absolut geile Optik. Likörschwerer Antrunk, die Süße weicht schnell Richtung Kaffee, Kakao und Zartbitterschokolade. Röstmalziger Abgang, der auch leicht torfig ist. N1ce!

"The most heavily peated malt in the world". Different, which is good, to other imp stouts I’ve had. It’s like a burning Yorkshire moor, with added alcohol and definitely some licorice in the end. However, roast is hidden too much behind the peat. I think Pete is a name that should make a comeback. I take that back. I don’t. Pete didn’t like me and I just had to accept it. Pete’s loss.

Gorm (1899) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2013
Kraftig øl med mye aroma. Bitter smak av humle og masse malt. Sjokolade, malurt og kraftig røyksmak. Ikke helt min smak.

nilsas (2846) - Bryne, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2013
Et øl med en skarp ubestemmelig smak. Noe skarp på smak og skarpere på ettersmak. Et godt øl til riktog rett.

cbfobes (2845) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Poured from 2011 bottle, pours pitch black with a pretty thick light brown head and lacing in the glass, aroma is of dark chocolate with a good amount of sweetness and malt, the flavor has a nice chocolate front with some of the peat and smoke in the finish, the abv is pretty well hidden, doesn’t blow me away but is still pretty solid.
