I can see why people could hate this beer as the Islay whisky influence is strong. I love Ardbeg so this is an almost perfect marriage of beer and whisky. Soft and cloying, but not subtle this is a beer that demands your attention. I would say under-carbonated but I can say I am happily sitting here like a dog lapping up peanut butter.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 Dark as the night, sweet chocolate barrel-tastic nose. Thick syrupy body, sweet dark malts, chocolate and coffee notes with undertones of tropical fruits. Finishes with a nice heavy bitterness leaving you wanting more.

Volle zwarte kleur met een goede fijne bruine kraag. Volle geur van koffie, vanille, iets peated en iets alcohol. Volle smaak, duidelijk peated, iets hout, koffie, vanillie en iets alcohol en een lekker bittertje en iets alcohol nasmaak. Dikke structuur. Lekker!

SimonTja (241) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2014
Pours deep black with no head. Aroma is asphalt, very smokey, deep roasted coffee, a bit burnt. Taste is the same, a bit ash tray about it, very very much black malt, super smoky and a lot of licorice. The carbonation is almost completely gone and the gelatin for the clearness has had its backlash - there’s a lot of chunks of jelly in the beer..
