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.

azzie (768) - Pula, CROATIA - APR 9, 2016
Bottle 0,33l from Hoppiness beer shop in Koper, Slo. Dense black liquid with small tan head. Roasted smoked smell, wooden note. Full body, light carbonation. Strong smoked taste, a hint of wood in it, medium sweetness, a hint of coffee, very long finish. Can taste some alcohol in aftertaste, but doesn’t bother me. Opened 2 years from the day of bottling. Very nice.

rami_pl (1655) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 2, 2016
butelka, warka rozlana 28/11/2014. geste i prawie czarne juz przy nalewaniu, praktycznie bez piany. aromat intensywnie wedzony, pol na pol - wedzonych sliwek i drewna. w tle jakies czekoladowe nuty, jakies rodzynki, pewnie cos jeszcze, ale chowa sie to za wedzonka. W ustach pelne, lepkie, slodkie, smak to powtorka z aromatow. wedzonka okazuje sie taka... fajna, smakowita, jedzeniowa. dlugie posmaki, dosc mocne rozgrzewanie w przelyku. klasa

mariuspoenari (1311) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark brown pour with a thin beige head. Smells of dark cherries, chocolate, roasted malts, smoke, bourbon, cocoa, caramel and dark berries. The taste is well balanced, with notes of roasted malts, peat, cherries, chocolate, some coffee and whiskey. Very nice balance, all the notes are kind of mellow and toned down.
