Deep oily black color, with beige foam. Aromas of wood, whiskey, smokiness. Roasted malts, a hint of vanilla, smoked malts and whiskey in taste. Strong long alcoholic aftertaste. Very nice beer, but for sure a one to share,

Tomy63 (193) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2013
couleur très noire, peu de bulles. Nez sur le café, très fermier, un peu iodé, fruits cuits (prunes) à la Rochefort 10. Bouche très sucrée, sur le café, la tourbe se sent enfin, un peu d’amertume, texture très épaisse. Finale très longue, encore plus de tourbe, sur le café, très sucrée, un peu écoeurante quand même.

Color: nice deep black beer with no carbonation and small brown foam. Smell: licorice, sweet, malt and good peat presence. Taste: high malt and peat domination with sweet and sugar. Aftertaste: nice licorice and peat.

Bottle from Bier&zo, Rotterdam. Jet black. Blacker than the night, my friend. All that barrel is right there in the glass as it pours - savoury smoke. Little brown head. Thick in the mouth, carbonation spot on. Layers of rich, deep roast - everything from new shoes to a joint of beef in the oven. Then the finish is pure Bowmore - iodine, salt, big smoke and charred wood. Superb.

orzech (48) - Resovia, POLAND - NOV 4, 2013
0.33l bottle. Deep dark brown color, thin dark beige head. Aroma of whisky, alcohol, perfume, spices, and burnt malt. On my tongue I can feel respectively: sweet caramel, burnt malt, and bitter hopped whisky with coffee. The closing one is really heavy and lasts pretty long. Overall, this thing is strong and drinkable, so be circumspect...

bursprak (780) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2013
Tasting @ Voldby. Smukt skum. Olieagtig konsistens. Blød fin smag uden at alkoholen brænder igennem, en af de bedste indtil videre.

Habanero (2756) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2013
Bottled. Pours opaque black with a huge, lacing beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, coffee and whiskey notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with bitter notes. Full bodied, creamy text. and flat carb. An excellent impy. indeed.
