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. Can’t really get into it.

olio (5895) - 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 isn’t quite as nice, tar and bourbon notes feel a bit rough, very little vanilla present. Laphroaig can be found on the taste but didn’t 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.

fiulijn (14315) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle from De Molen beershop, Bodegraven, bottled 19 March 2013
Dark brown color, not yet black, with small frothy head. The aroma is dubious, there is some peat, but also some vinegar, fruits, dust, light chocolate. Good body structure; nice flavor of caramel and some chocolate, with light sourness that adds dynamics; correct bitterness, with a lightly dusty final.
Good but dirty.

Aniela (2305) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle at home. Dark brown beer with a minimal offwhite head. Tar, dried dark fruits and Laphroaig whiskey aroma. Ashy, smokey, tar flavour with much alcohol taste. Laphroaigwhiskey is not my favourite and this beer feels like a thin version of that whiskey. I wished for more beer-feeling in this beer....

Beer4000 (4399) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2013
Sampled @ Haand 2013. Deep amber body with a nice, dense tan head. Strong aroma of sweetish Islay whisky, peated malt, some berries and wood. Flavor is sweet peated malt, lots of whisky, roasted coffee and too much oak. Fine body and boozy aftertaste. Promising in aroma but too boozy and unbalanced in flavor.
