Nice..... amazing taste evolution. First sip is coffee/dark chocolate but it then turns into earth/ground coffee. Very special. Deep dark beer with almost no head. Bought at the De Molen bottle shop during the Borefts Beer Festival 2011.

Bottle @ BBF2011. Black pour, no head. Aroma full of iodine, peat, some burnt malts, ash, tobacco and alcohol. Flavor is bitter roasty, full of whiskey. Somewhat thin body and a bit messy. Still nice.

Deze had natuurlijk lekkerder moeten zijn dan de variant met Jack Daniels. Laphroaig is mijn favoriete whiskey. Maar na de rijke smaak van de Ola Dubh is dit bier toch beduidend minder. Wat vooral opvalt is de houtige afdronk. Als het bier net in je mond zit voelt en smaakt het rond met whiskey en chocolade, maar zodra het over je tong naar achter in je keel glijdt, neemt een overheersende houtsmaak het over. Niet vies, zeker niet. Een mooi bier om bij een kampvuur of voor de open haard te drinken.

Sampled at Borefts Beer Festival @ De Molen, Bodegraven. Pitch black, opaque, no head. Smell shallow, only smell lightly smokey and some coffee. Tastes winey, BA, lightly coffee, some bitter. Warming alcohol, a bit thin texture. Low carbo, full body.

Bottle at borefts 2011. Hello Laphroaig what are you doing in my beer, well apparently truly enjoying being in there cause it works out really well. The normal imp. stout by Emelisse is already a great beer. But this version, well bring on the winter, snow and a roaring fire and Ill kill some time with it.

On tap @ Borefts 2011. Black with a small beige head. Aroma is whiskey with hints of coffee and blackberries. Medium body, oily on the palate with a slight bitter/harsh note in the finish. Taste is burnt sugar, coffee but slightly dominated by the whiskey.
