On tap at Haand Festival 2013
Black, tanned head. Aroma of roasted malts, oak an Islay Whisky. Medium sweet, roast and toast, coffee and whisky, some booze. Moderate bitter. Nice Imperial Stout; still i can’t say i’m able to tell the difference between Caol Ila and Laphroig in an Imperial Stout :)

Black pour. Slim tan head. Little bit of splotchy lacing. Smoky aroma with some prunes and malt. Taste is an earthy malt and watered down Scotch. A slight acetic note. But not overly so, yet. Would be afraid to let this one sit too long because of that.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 Bottle @ de molen. Aroma is big iodine, peat, slight smoke, Flavour has a sour note, also peat, iodine, rasputin almost totally pushed away, which is a shame imho.

Bottle shared by the Bierkoning crew, thanks! Pours pitch black with a small off-white head. Aroma is strong whiskey, not much roastiness or coffee. Taste is some whiskey, again not much roastiness or coffee and quite a lot of sourness. Not sure this was intended.

Sampled from bottle thanks to the Bierkoning crew @ Amsterdam. Dark brown color with a dark red glow coming through, small off white to beige head. Smell a lot of whisky, wood and alcohol. Taste malts, sour, some whisky but a lot of sour. Intended? Hmm not sure...
