Bottle @ Borefts Beer Festival. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is gentle peated whiskey notes. espresso, roastyness, chocolate, sweet caramel and sweet liquorice. Taste is liquorice, smoke, somehow wool notes (not on the palate though), sawdust and hops.

From bottle @ BBF 2011. Deep dark brown color. Ashy aroma with soy sauce. Peaty ashy flavor, blowing away all malt and chocolate notes. oaky with tobacco. Good, but not optimally balanced..

cgarvieuk (16795) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 23, 2011
bottle at de molen festival ... deep dark roast ... big whiskey ... deep dark roast nose ... dark malts ... big chocolate roas... dark roast ... again too much whsikey ... but solid chololate ... mix this with some non ba and it could be a winner.

Donkerbruin bijna zwart bier met kleine bruine kraag. Wat duidelijk overheerst in de smaak is "peat" zoals het etiket al aangeeft. Rook, turf, mout, whiskey, met bittere nasmaak. Het is een heerlijk, sterk bier dat net een beetje diepgang en nuances in de smaak mist om een echte topper te zijn. Maar gezien de prijs/kwaliteit verhouding gaat deze zeker vaker in de kast terechtkomen.

33cl, as Emelisse Imperial Russian Stout (with sticker ’PEATED’), new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2011, from De Bierkoning Amsterdam, complex smoked Stout, roasted and slightly bitter/fruity, not too heavy, very balanced, hazy, nearly no head, very good brew, yet expensive!

dutchbeerpages (1778) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2011
Beer with quite a kick. Dirty tasting but interesting beer full of chocolate, earth and some black berries. Almost no carbonation and hardly any foam. Finish is really dry and biting. Great.

PotjeBier (1940) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2011
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours a black color, almost no head, but what there is is brown. Aromas of peat, leather, smoky, roast, alcohol, with sweetness retronasal. Flavor is sweet and peaty/leathery. Not too much carbonation. Finishes with more peat & leather and then rather bitter. Not as good as the Laphraoig B.A. version, but still great.

Tap at Haarlem Bierfestival: Opaque black excellent brew with an good taste of roasted malts and hints of coffee, chocolate and blueberry.
