Matured on oak casks from Laproaig. That means lots and lots of peat.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, - DEC 3, 2012
Black as night with a small brown head that quickly disappears, but the beer keeps fizzling away for a long time. Smells of whisky and smoke. The taste is actually alot sweeter than expected. Chocolatemalts aswell as the smokey taste from the laphroaig. Complex and great beer!

_angst_ (3067) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours very dark reddish brown with a very small bubbly offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet, malty and smokey with roasted malts, biscuits, burnt caramel, hay, moist soil, peat, single malt whisky, burnt wood, smoked ham and hints of lemon peal. Taste is sour and malty with dark bread, lemon juice, sour milk, peat, burnt wood, vanilla, whisky, acetone, acetic acid and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is dry, tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour with dark bread, lemon juice, sour milk, peat, burnt wood, biscuits, whisky and hay. Infected trainwreck…

rlgk (11538) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Pitch black beer, almost no head. Malty oak aroma, peat, chocolate, soot, hay, vanilla notes, tar, some cocoa, sour peat flavor, cigarettes, ash, vinous, milky, quite infected snd the heavy whisky kills everything that was good in the original Rasputin.

LoFi (1595) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2014
2012 bottle from backlog. Almost black, porous beige head. Aroma: peaty and light smoky, toffee, salt. Taste: peaty, roasted, light smoky, creamy chocolate, fudge, toffee, used coffee grounds. Full-bodied. Nice, but not a great barrel aging as it overpowers the beer a bit.

laiti (5980) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 28.08.2012, BBE 28.08.2037
Aroma is rather neat with peaty notes, licorice and smoke. Flavourn is salty with peat, smoke, islay whisky and some licorice. Confusing stuff; somewhat nice but then again a bit too salty and peaty.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
33 cl bottle.
Pours dark copper color with a small head. Aroma is strong with islay whisky, wood and malts, some chocolate notes also. Flavor of chocolate, topacco, ash, caramel and licorice. Smooth palate but not very pleasant.

lusikka (6573) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a brown colour with a small head. Aroma of peat, leather and burnt rubber. Flavour of roasted malts, loads and loads of residual sugar, burnt rubber and some wooden notes. Medium bodied and thin mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Horrible balance. Yeah, peat is there but everything else is missing.

tiong (4019) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
330ml bottle from De Molen Beershop

Pours pitch black with a tiny bubbly head. Aroma of peaty malts, roastiness, licorice, wood, oak and vanilla. Taste is sweet, peaty and woody with hints of licorice, roastiness, oak and smoke. Finish is sweet, peaty and woody with hints of sweet syrup. Quite unbalanced imperial stout, the peaty notes don’t really fit in here.
