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!

Smokey imperial stout with a sharp taste of liquorice and whiskey. Warming aftertaste. Very nice.

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle big thanks to Dirty D. Slow gusher. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is rich, oily, slick peated malt action, medicinal, oily smoke, dark fruits, plum, prune, tangy and earth. The taste is tangy dark fruits upfront, plum, prune, earth, rich, smoke malt, peat, tangy action, meatiness and earth with a smooth finish. Medium - full body and fine carbonation. Smooth and I think very well balanced. Yum.

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.
