4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black beer with a small mocca colored head. Smell is faint with some malty porter scents, smokey, with a light whisky aroma. But the taste is packed with flavor. After some sips the whisky really starts to come through. It has a malty base with some creamy chocolate, smokiness and light hoppiness. Quickly after it you get the whisky aroma followed with a robust roasted peaty bitter and a dry finish with the peat lingering a little bit. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. This is one heck of a good balanced flavor packed porter/stout beer. The added peated whisky really brings something special to it. Way better then their regular IRS in my book :D

Doskonaly imperialny stout. Czuc aromat whisky z daktylami i innymi suszonymi owocami. Finisz dlugi, przyjemnie alkoholowo rozgrzewajacy. Piwo ciezkie i syte geste smoliste i piekielnie wytrawne. Lepsza moim zdaniem ta wersja od podstawowej.

Poured black and viscous, small tan head. Aroma of spicey smoked malt and some sweetness. Medium body, flavour is of a muted smokeyness over the porter, quite smooth mouthfeel with a slight bitter, smokey aftertaste.

Enjoyed on tap at Torst. Peat taste is not overdone. A bit thin for an imperial stout. Not bad.
