fiulijn (17484) - 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 (4207) - 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....

Beer5000 (5470) - 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.

bierkoning (11679) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Malt, dried fruit and peat in the aroma. Very low on carbon. A plummy, somewhat apple sour flavor with soft opeaty and cigar notes. Don’t get me wrong, this is still an excellent beer, but I expected better.
