bought a bottle at etre. pours black with a small tan head. nose gets coffee, nuts, oak, and alcohol. taste of chocolate, a slight bitterness, and a good taste of the Laphroaigh. would say that the ABV is a lot higher. for me this is the best white label IRS from emelisse

@haandbryggeriets ølfestival. Dette er nok den beste barrel aged imperial stouten jeg har smakt, og by far den mest interessante. Jeg er glad i laphraig og liker torvsmaken i den. en meget interessant og kompleks whiskey, ølen ble minst like kompleks. jeg kjente veldig godt igjen fatet i ølen. noen sier at den er "overdone", men jeg synes denne var helt fantastisk.

This beer is growing. Yes literally. Extremely much scent. Heavy flavor that tastes much barrel. The aftertaste is too heavy and would never end. May be the heaviest I have been drinking.

subcombicio (167) - Marghera, ITALY - APR 1, 2013
Grande abbinamento di gusti tra la imperial russian stout e il gusto del laphroaig, dove emerge chiaramente la nota torbata che la rende intrigante. Da meditazione.
