Peaty start malty middle and then the smokiness to finish. The nose is straight up single malt Scotch whiskey. This drink is silky smooth the whole way through.

This might be the first and last time I will be giving full score. Perfect balance off great beer and whisky. This is defenitely the best beer I have ever tasted! Taking a sip envelopes you into a great adventure of rich flavors that keep on coming and changing for minutes long. It will grab your attention every time again.

Linnet (1030) - Umeå, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2012
Ar: Ardbeg smoke a plenty! Peat, ashy, tar, like licking a sailboat! Just lovely! Ap: black colour, no head. F: heavy, heavy oak aging, This is intense! Smokey, completely dominating the other notes, ashy, peaty, sweet, boozy, rich as you can’t believe, coffee, roasty, licorice, soy sauce, woody, lovely! Ending in a warming and extremely smokey note. M: Soft carbonation, like velvet. T: This is awesome!

Una produzione di eccellenza. La presenza e la raffinatezza dell’invecchiamento è uno degli aspetti più riusciti. Il palato persiste e muta senza scomparire. Da provare assolutamente.

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle @ ACBF 2012: pitch black with a small mocha head, smell is very heavy on the peat, chunks of peated earth, almost edging towards burned plastic, burned malts, taste is sweet upfront, molasses, chocolate, brown sugar, creamy malts leading up to a very strongly peated finish, idione, ink, peated earth, almost too much at first but once your pallet adjusts to it, it becomes very well balanced & you get both sides of this beer, thick, peaty body, low carb. very nice hybrid

Pyobon (862) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 20, 2012
(on tap) An extraordinary beer. Very black colour with little beige head. The aroma is intense whiskey peatiness with hints of caramel. It is smooth, almost sticky with modest carbonation. The flavour is extraordinary, again dominated by the whiskey peatiness, but with a complex mix of complimentary flavours including dark toffee, chocolate, oak. Overall an exceptional beer.

Moolesen (108) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Number 5 of a range of 7 Emelisse IRS. What an evening... Very nice big head. Perfect match of peat. Top beer. More peat than iodine. My kind of beer. Well done.
