Sample kindly of Kees, headbrewer @ Emelisse. Holy smoke, this beer rocks! This beer might have reconciled me with Islay peated beers. Brune foncée laissant une fine pellicule dorée sur le verre. Arôme de tourbe et Speyside gardant aussi ce bouquet de stout, chocolat et malt grillé avec une légère torréfaction. En bouche, pas mal de tourbe et cendre, alcool réchauffant avec en retrait une douceur agréable de malt grillé et caramel aux notes de café. Je ressens aussi une présence de fleur presque de bruyère le tout gardant ce côté cendre.

33 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a small to no head. Aroma is tarish and burne dark malty. Sweet malty, tarish and dark roasted malty flavoured. Dry and roasted malty finish, lasting tarish note.

abemorsten (3263) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2012
From bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Black with no head. Mostly smoked peat whiskey onthe nose but also sweet and roasted notes. Heavy ash and fireplace notes on sweet roasted flavors. Full bodied and smooth to drink but a dry mouth at the end of the lengthy finish.

MrHangover (3302) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Pitch black color, beige head. Aroma of judain, peat and lots of whisky aromas. Flavor and mouthfeel are quite boozy but still very nice to drink.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is black with a thin beige head. The aroma brings a grandiose serving of Ardbeg. For you single malt scotch aficionados, especially those who favor those great whiskeys from Islay, you will likely enjoy this. Those less inclined to sip a peaty scotch on a rainy night may find this offering harsh and offensive. The flavor offers notes of chocolate, oak, vanilla, peat, smoke. A young Ardbeg character really dominates every aspect of the beer. Some searing alcohol heat in the finish with lingering sea salt and maritime character, medium to full bodied, fairly viscous. I really enjoyed this, though this is certainly not for everybody.

Bottle from jmgreenuk - thanks John! Whoa - totally different flavour to the Wild Turkey version, but hey, I guess that’s the point eh? Duh. Dry, full of whiskey vapours like the boozy whiskey experiences of my misspent youth. Papery, inflammable quality. Slightly less beige head than the Wild Turkey. Antiseptic scent.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 Keg at Arendsnest, 28th March 14. Black, nose is whiskey, some peat, a little smoke. Taste is whiskey, lots of peat, bitter, lingering finish. Too much peat for my taste, over powered the other elements I like, such as liquorice and leather, still an enjoyable drink

In brand bulb glass, pours pure black without any real head till the last bubbles float up. Smell immediately remembers you what’s on the label: the smell of peaty Ardbeg whisky combined with some sweeter notes. Tastes sweet, ending in a very long bitter finish. Aroma’s of dark chocolate mixed with whisky and some hint of peaty smoke and wood. Very light carbonisation. This makes he hunger for Ardbeg as a desert. :) Best of whisky and stout.

xlts (76) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 27, 2015
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 Pours black, tiny, beige-to-brown head. Aroma is EXTREMELY peaty and smoky, hints of dark malts. Taste is dominated by peated whisky notes balanced by a fair amount of sweetness. Some hints of dark fruit and caramel, but it definitely is one smoky monster. Great, bold and complex stout.
