teorn88 (3640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2013
33cl bottle, DSG and jsquire tasting at Chrisí. It pours a deep dark brown body with a medium beige foam. Aroma is straight whisky with salty notes, charred oak and some leather. Taste is full on the smokey whisky notes with more saltiness. A tad watered down body and good carbonation. Overall, this is interesting but the barrel did no good to it.

lusikka (7492) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a minimal white head. Aroma is really intense at first with smoked wood, peat, birch leaves, tar and espresso. Then the vanilla kicks in and it smoothens the aroma quite nicely. Flavour is a bit messy; roasted malts, strong vinegar notes, tar, vanilla and green apples. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and no carbonation. Alcohol comes through a lot. Aroma was near perfection, but everything else was way off.

Dark brown with an off white head - Wood and vanilla aroma along with some peat - Strong peated malt body with wood vanilla and a lot of alcohol heat - Lingering wood and peat with alcohol heat - This was a litlle bit over the top for me and not that good either

hier had ik me op verheugd, ťťn van mijn favoriete bieren is de rasputin, ik was dan ook erg benieuwd naar deze variant.

donker bruin met kaki kraag
aroma: de houten vat aromaís overheersen, waar zijn de heerlijke gebrande/geroosterde mouten etc gebleven ?
smaken: medium zoet, licht bitter, matig zuur, kolen, zacht, teer, balsamico, rook.
vreemde ervaring als je deze naast de rasputin legt, al de extremen zijn verdwenen en hiervoor zijn de zachte, vatgerijpte smaken voor in de plaats gekomen. op zich ook wel goed, maar totaal niet verwacht icm met de naam rasputin, laat staan dat dit uit het vat kwam !

Sweet & enough to put you under. band aids bloody sweetness& a bit of sour. Nice but thinner than expected. Not bad but lacks dimension.

@basunen: ganska fatpreglat doft. Smaken är inte alls vad jag väntade mig. Istället för en tung imperial stout får jag stora vibbar av brett och syrliga körsbär. Frågan än om den är off, men den smakar dog mycket bra. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - thanks Mr. Hangover! This one pours dark clear reddish black with a small tan head that dissapears quickly with some lacing. Aroma is very peaty, scotch, roasted malts. Flavor is peaty, smoky, meaty, medium sweet, almost like smoked teriaki beef jerky. Light bitterness on the finish. Medium to light body, surprisingly low viscosity for a beer of this magnitude. Canít really get into it.

olio (7956) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2013
33 cl bottle.
Pours deep dark red, almost black color with a small rapidly dissipating head. Aroma is quite aggressive and a bit stingy with Caol Ila, but only at first, some tar and wooden notes follow and soften the aroma nicely, hints of vanilla and peat linger on the background as well.
Flavor isnít quite as nice, tar and bourbon notes feel a bit rough, very little vanilla present. Laphroaig can be found on the taste but didnít notice it on the nose. Dark malts and dark fruit notes are accompanied by distant dark berries, faint salty salmiac on the lingering finish. Low carbonation, a bit thin, slick and malty palate. Expected a bit more from this, nice aroma though.
