3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is very complex, amazing what you can do with one single style. This beer is very smokey, herby and most of all peaty. For me personally a litle too much but it is a fairly amazing beer nonetheless, something I have never tasted before. Bottle from De Bierkoning.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Bottle at home. Black pour, thin dark brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is harsh, ashy, roasted, iodine, medicinal and wet sigar indeed. Flavor is even more wet sigar, very ashy and with tar. Quite offensive brew. Out of balance. Still unique and intriguing.

Dark brown body and tan soapy head. Loads of whiskey, tobacco, peat and roasted. Rich taste, well pronounced but not really my thing with all that whiskey. (33cl bottle at MrHangover’s tasting)

smoke, nuts, roasty, black, cloudy, minimal head, brown foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, full body, slick feel, soft carbonation, long finish, Smokiness, malt sweetness and hops bitterness are very balanced, although the sweetness and bitterness are use to fight the smokiness as this is very strong. Smells like a islay

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Bergen, Norway. Extremely foamy stout! When settled it appears promising. The odour is tantalizingly awesome: lovely smell. Nice stout though unfortunately only with a inferior Ardbeg-touch present.
