BeerBaboon (1808) - 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 (3235) - 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.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 19, 2012
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours a black beer with a weak beige head. The aroma is weak with malt, fruit, roasted, dried fruit and alcohol. The flavor follows the nose with additional peat and smoke. The palate is smoke, roasted and sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Pyrmir (4737) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle at ÖÖWF 2012. LOTS of Ardbeg in the nose, together with syrupy sweetness. Taste: Sweet as hell itself, ashes, lots of whiskey. "tastes like cigarette butts drenched in beer" someone said.

tiong (5407) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2012
330ml bottle from Bieresgourmet. Vertical with Sorachi Ace version

Pours pitch black with a light brown head. Aroma of strong peated notes, roasty malts, hints of smoke and licorice. Taste is strongly peated and smoked with some hints of roasty malts, licorice, vanilla and oak. Finish is again heavy on peaty notes, with some smooth licorice and wooden notes. Awesome if you like Islay whiskies, but the peatiness dominates perhaps a bit too much.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2012
0.33l bottle shared with Ina. This one is as black as the knigh, and it has a small light bubbly chocolaty tan head. Smells really smoky. Woody, peat and salty tar. Some roasted hints but the rope sea-smoky thing totally dominates. I like it. It’s thick and oily on the mouthfeel with a soft to average carbonation level. The taste is even more dominating on the smoky flavor. At times, perhaps a bit to much for my tongue. Peaty smoke, some saltiness and deep roastiness all the way. A bit one dimensional perhaps, but tasty. 22.09.2012

@ Basunen. Trevlig och tydlig whiskydoft. Smaken är inte alls så rökig heller ganska len och mjuk. Mycket fat men ändå balanserade toner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
