BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2013
Dark, almost black, colored beer with a small head. Smoke dominates the aroma. Flavor is smoked too, some malty sweetness, chocolate and coffee popping up. Some woodnotes too. Smooth bitter sweet finish.

Kikuzzo (143) - Bologna, ITALY - JAN 10, 2013
Incredibile, impenetrabile e avvolgente... esperienza da godere senza fretta. Mi portato indietro a quando mio padre fumava la pipa e la domenica mattina prima di pranzo usava il tabacco leggero, dolce e un po’ vanigliato.

sic1314 (4776) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2013
Poured an oily black with a small, tight tan head which quickly disappeared. Aroma of peatyness overpowers everything else in the nose (good job I like my Islay malts). Smooth, creamy medium body. flavour is of the peaty roasted malt dominating, with a very dry, bitter aftertaste. Excellent for what it is, but a very acquired taste.

Idiosynkrasie (5029) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear darkest reddish glowing black colour with almost no head, just a reawakening thin tan layer remains. Aroma has extreme whiskey notes, tar, peat, leather, oak; no hints of malt or hop detectable. Taste is surprisingly different; more compact, earthy, swampy, peaty, some leather, tannin, a nuttily touch; flat carbonation. Although the BA flavours predominate, the taste gives the feeling of a unit.

BeerBaboon (1780) - FINLAND - DEC 19, 2012
Emelissen Ardbeg-viskitynnyreissä kypsytetty imperial stout kaatuu lasiin mustana muodostaen vaalean ruskeaa vaahtoa. Tuoksu muistuttaa Ardbegista ja on myös kahvinen, savuinen ja paahtunut. Maussa puolestaan on kahvia, lakristsia, paahtunutta mallasta, lääkkeitä, savua ja lisää viskiä. Islay-viskeille tyypillinen turpeisuus tulee hyvin esiin sekä tuoksussa että maussa. Alkoholin maku tulee esiin vain viskimäisesti ja onkin poikkeuksellisen miellyttävää. Toisin olisi, jos maku muistuttaisi esim. kossua. Vähähiilihappoisuus ei tietenkään tällaisessa oluessa vaivaa ja olut soljuu alas kurkusta paksuna ja liukkaana. Viski on tässä tynnyrikypsytetyssä keskimääräistä vahvempi elementti, mutta ei hautaa muita makuja täysin alleen. Toimii siis vahvan viskiseksi olueksi erinomaisesti.

RexTalionis (3112) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. BBE 09/2015. Pours black in color with a bubbly tan head. Peat, tar, smoked wood, whiskey notes in aroma. Feels a bit like sniffing on the cork to an Ardbeg bottle, but with some mellower indications, perhaps some bitter chocolate or licorice behind that. Light smokey, salty licorice and burnt wood in taste at first. Oily, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Very warming and something that leaves burning on ones tongue for awhile in aftertaste. Slightly sweet as in some dark chocolate, but mostly some smoke and peat. Nice one. A real winter warmer that takes several hours to finish it.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Bottled 33cl. Strong smokiness. Leather showing up. Full bodied. Band-aid reminiscence throughout. Very nice.
