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.

Pours dark black into a snifter. Mocha head recedes to coat surface leaving trailing sheets. Sweet smoky chocolate and espreaso aromas. Dry and frothy with chocolate upfront turning to espresso and bandaids in the lasting smoky finish.

NikkTwist (2779) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Draft at Monks Cafe. Opaque with a large pillowy tan head. Strong smoked peat aroma, much like a whisky. Full dark malty flavors. Dark chocolate. Kerosene infused charcoal. Tar. Strong black tea. Anbesol. Burnt sugar notes but also a hint of lighter vanilla caramel. Warms up to a bit of red fruit, but smokey dark malt flavors dominate. Very full body. Feels like a meal, or at least a glass of very rich and decadent mousse.

kermis (11268) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle shared at tasting. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is peaty, chocolate, burnt malt, coffee. The peat comes out nicely in the flavour, not overpoweringly so as can be the case with some BA beers. Heavy sweet and bitter with roast, chocolate and licorice going into the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
