4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black, no head. Aroma of peat, medicinal, turfed malts, roasted, light sweet mocha and cacao. Quite sweet flavour, light smoke, light astringent wood. Lots of peat, light vanilla, red berries and wood tones. Creamy, very light carbonation. Light sweet finish, smoke and peat.
Nice, love the pronounced Laphroaig while still having some balance.

The taste is strong sweet wood, some chocolate syrup and coffee cake. Smooth, oily body, viscous. Full, rich. Overall, pretty excellent. Much better than I thought it would be!

No head, just some blacki bubbles on top of an almost back colored beer. There’s some dark red amber shining through.
The smell has lots of iodine and jodium inside, there’s also some band aid, smoked oak. A bit medicinal.
Taste is earthy with nuts, iodine/jodium, roast, roasted/burnt wood, roasted malts, ash. Different but nice.
Aftertaste is bitter, roast, iodine, and some burnt wood and barleys.
Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and an oily texture.

Tap @ Borefts 2012. Black and opague. Laphroaigh! One of my favorites. But it didn’t dominate as much as I expected. Chocolate and soft peaty notes in both aroma and flavor. Dried red fruit, licorice. Sweet with hints of alcohol throughout the peat. Good!!
