The_Osprey (5968) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle shared at home in Richmond. 2013 vintage from my ’cellar’, as ’De Molen Rasputin Laphroaig/Caol Ila’. A little De Molen gush. Very dark brown with a red hue, foamy brown head. Aroma is very peaty as expected - lots of smoke. Also has dark chocolate, buttery whisky, burnt notes with a little fruity vinegar. Body is light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is red berries, smoke, peaty, burnt cereals. Very tasty - moreish phenolic stuff.

Scopey (12247) - 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.

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle shared in Richmond - many thanks to Daniel. Pours unclear brown with a creamy tan head. The nose has some sturdy peat, dark fruits, faint caramel. Medium sweet flavor with notes of candied ham, raw peat, ripe berries, scorched earth, hearty booze. Full bodied with average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, with lingering peat, earth, dried berries, toasted caramel. Interesting stuff. Not bad, but a little rough at the edges.

sjogro (2501) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle shared threeways. Vintage 2013/03/19. Darkbrown creme head. Stinks! Sour berries, peat, wood chips, dark roasted, wine, coffee, wild yeast, very funky, milk sour. Mild to strong sour, soft to mild bitter. Infected okay, but still interesting with a lot of good and some bad: generally has the taste of cheap woodchips/plywood recurring through everything else.

Przemek1992 (66) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Jeden z najdziwniejszych RIS-ow jakie piłem. Juz ciemno brazowa barwa zwiastuje że bedzie to cos innego niz to czego oczekuje od risa. Aromat silnie torfowy bardo fajny z nutka czekolady. W smaku olejne zaskoczenie poniewaz piwo jest wyraxnie kwaśne do tego dochodzi torf, spalone kable, asfalt i troche kawy. Dziwne, ciekawe ale warto sprobowac

PotjeBier (2661) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home, bottle date March 2013 (over two years ago). Very dark color - not quite opaque, it’s clear with a dark red hue. Light beige head with good retention. Aroma’s: iodine, band-aid, some tartness? Definitely tart retronasal, with roasted malts, chocolate, charcoal. Flavor is moderate sour with a light sweetness. Medium bodied. Finishes with roast/ash and light bitterness, but unfortunately the sourness remains. What a pity.

tandembrauer (1094) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle at home, birthday present from family. Pours brown with medium sized, cream coloured head. Aroma of whisky, dark dried fruits, medicine, sherry. Taste sour-fruity, peat smoke, sherry, medicine. Thin to medium bodied, silky mouth feel. Sour and smoked aftertaste.

fkoolen (927) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle at home, bottled on 19/03/13 (aged in my cellar). Transparent dark brown colour, brown foamy head. Aroma and taste are quite sour, fruity too; light coffee and chocolate tones, little bitterness too. Finish gets the peated whiskey, smoke, cask and dryness tones I was expecting; nicely lingering. Taste isn?t well balanced. As it warms, some porto tones come up. Low carbonation, medium body (sadly), soft mouthfeel. Enjoyable but not too spectacular.

Bottle at home. Silky smooth, whisky on the nose. Dry, peated finish. Not too smoky though.

TimE (4961) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 2, 2015
Light medium brown color. Surprisingly light for an imperial stout. Huge peaty nose that highlights Laphroaig with some sweet malt undertones of dark fruit and a hint of roasted malt. The mouth is slightly sour with lots of peaty notes. Really not much of an imperial stout and definitely lacks roasted malt. Surprising that Rasputin is the base beer for this. Sour and not too balqnced.
