On draught at the Boreft Beer Festival, 2011. A dark brown ale with a brown head. A big, smoky, peaty, iodine nose. Similar smoky flavour with roasted malt, burnt toast and caramel. Great!

Pours pitch black, nice head. This brew is truly full of peat smoke. Alcohol sticks it to your nose like whiskey. Taste is incredibly peaty as well, peat smoke from the beginning to the end. Taste lingers for long. Very strong taste, actually quite sweet body, has also decent amount of hops and herbs. Really massive über-drink.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein tiefschwarzes Bier mit schöner bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch rauchig, holzig, stark röstmalzig, Kaffee, alkoholisch. Geschmack stark röstmalzig, schwarzer Kaffee, holzig, leicht säuerlich.

ansalon (1258) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2013
Pours pitch black with a medium foam head. Aroma is tar, peat, smoke, dark bitter chocolate, muscovado sugar, honey, charred wood. Taste is peat, honey, dark red fruit, honey, muscovado sugar, vanilla. Really quite good. A bit too peaty on the nose, but very well balanced!

Black, beige head, good lacing. Smells like whiskey, touch of smoke, coffee. Mouthfeel is great, full. A bit of smoke, licorice, coffee, lovely flavor. Bitterness in the aftertaste, flavors stay for a while, bitterness much longer.

Wonderful smoky aroma, coffee-like and slightly sludgy appearance, not too dark colour. Great flavour with a long dark smoky aftertaste. Not offensively smoky, though. Really nice stout.

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

Grzesiek79 (3109) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 18, 2013
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.
