Almost clear dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is surprisingly light, not very RIS at all! Light fine carbonation. A very nice tangy fruits start, it’s almost sour. Dark fruits and a whisper of brett. The smokey whisky kicks in on the back end but never overpowers. Finishes smooth with a whisper of TCP. A very unusual RIS and one of the best aged in peat whisky barrels.

rikstar (1759) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2014
0,33l fles, in het glas prachtig zwart bier met bruine wolken en kleine zwevende deeltjes gist? Minimaal bruin schuim. Zeer ongebruikelijk aroma met Mc Donalds barbecuesaus, leukoplast, houtskool en (gelderse) worst. Smaak is vooral zoetzuur met houttonen als in een wijn met veel tanines, ook iets van onrijpe bramen of blauwe druiven. Licht trekkend mondgevoel en de alkoholwarmte volgen daarna. Rook in de nasmaak. Totaalplaatje is bijzonder nu het biertje meer op kamer temperatuur komt de smaak beter in balans.

Gedronken bij joes. Bruine en heldere kleur. Beige schuimkraag. Ruikt maar jodium, zoet en een beetje fruitig. Smaakt een beetje hout, beetje fruitig en klein zuurtje

maekchu (3044) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya. Musty barrel aromas, with some smoke, burnt leather. Dark translucent brown, light tan head. Medium dark fruit / small burst of smoke, seaweed, and berries / some acidity in finish, along with light bitterness. Light body for am imperial stout, but alc. is well hidden. Barrel presence is quite definite, but it’s not really a whiskeyish one. Interesting flavors. Body seems quite thin.

Buongiorgio00 (934) - - JAN 3, 2014
Un impatto gustativo molto caldo e avvolgente che smussa l’effetto invasivo del grado alcolico. Unico difetto: il gusto di whisky è troppo carico e preponderante, e nasconde gli altri sapori. Tutto sommato una apprezzabile birra da divano. Si tratta di whisky ottimo, d’altronde. Niente di cui lamentarsi!

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle at home. Dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is full of peat, iodine, plum, tobacco, cedar, varnish and a hint of roasted malts. Flavor is stringent iodine and peat with a clear sour note. Thin body. Too much whiskey for the smooth and delicate rasputin and definitely infected. Messy.

Absolutely black with light brown foam head. Aroma is very nice indeed, tastes chocolates, toast, whiskey, rye. Nice beer, drink slowly. Short aftertaste. (Velp 201312)
