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.

Pitch black, big and very dense head. Incredibly strong aroma of peated malt, licorice, smoked wood with chocolate background. Taste is very dry, full of peat, slighlty smoked and chocolate. Creamy, full body. Soft carbonation. Rich and tasty beer, rather for peated-beer lovers.

Aroma of old wooden doors with that was spilled with roasted barley malts for few years. Taste is way better. Nice brew, however won’t buy again.

Bottle from Ølbutikken. Nice head still flowing from the bottle. Incredibly full flavour of peat, licorice and chocolate. One of the best imperial stouts I've tried so far. Long aftertaste, only the aroma is a bit timid.

Rich full bodied impy stout. Peat does come through but is balanced by the heavy malts,

Black colour with a beige head, good lasting. Aroma has notes of roasted malts, licorice, alcohol and peat. Flavor has notes of coffee, strong black chocolate notes and licorice. The final is mild bittery with coffee and licorice hints. Creamy and smooth on palate.

guzgorog (224) - FRANCE - DEC 18, 2013
Robe noire, plate, liquoreuse. Nez de raisin sec, alcool fort, whisky. En bouche : corps très lourd, liquoreuse, l’amertume se fait ressentir, puis une explosion de saveur : café, fruits à l’eau de vie, fumé, malts torréfié. La longueur en bouche est exceptionnelle. L’alcool est très présent. Sans doute très interessant à oublier des années dans la cave ...

Dark and oily beer. Thick body of chocolate, coffee, dark malt and bread. Like they used all the malts they could get. Tastes rich and complex. Good beer.
