sic1314 (3818) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2013
Poured an oily black with a small, tight tan head which quickly disappeared. Aroma of peatyness overpowers everything else in the nose (good job I like my Islay malts). Smooth, creamy medium body. flavour is of the peaty roasted malt dominating, with a very dry, bitter aftertaste. Excellent for what it is, but a very acquired taste.

Svesse (6297) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2013
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 27 July 2013) Black colour with foamy, brown head. Smoky, roasted, malty nose with oak wood, Islay whisky, peat, tar, soy sauce and roasted malt. Malty, roasted taste with notes of oak wood, peat smoke, liquorice, soy sauce, dark bread and a certain roasty bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Hardly in exceptional balance, with the oak wood and whisky character taking over a touch too much. But then I love Ardbeg whisky, so I can’t really complain. Quite extreme, but in my opinion very nice.

Niller (742) - Hammel, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from Voldby. Black colour with a small off-white head. Smoky aroma of roasted malt, licorice and notes of chocolate. Very smoky taste. Roasted malt, some licorice, chocolate and maybe some coffee too. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Smoke and licorice in the finish.

gyllenbock (5031) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle, thanks Eddan. Black with a small tan head. A lot of whisky both in the aroma and taste, also salt, peat and licorice. Not balanced but a nice beer to sip. The body was full and the aftertaste very long. Not a beer for the weak ones.

Black coloured. Has a light brown head. Heavy dark aroma, phenolic, transformer oil, some dark sweet sugars too.Great. Flavor is heavy sweet, some laqurice, soft, light phenolic notes again, moderate bitter finish, still nice. Syrupy texture.

tom10101 (3104) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Black with a small ring of beige foam. Aroma is heavily peated with tobacco, light chocolate and caramel. Taste is also heavily peated with tobacco, chocolate and caramel. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Lingering peated finish. The good thing about the peat is that it hide the alcohol. The bad thing is that it also hide almost everything else. Balance isn’t perfect at all, but it isn’t horrible either. Really peat forward. It’s still a pretty good RIS.

JulienHuxley (3482) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle at Tom?s apartment. Opaque black with thin but lacy brown foam. Aroma is really smoky, peated, but with some chocolaty notes as well, even a bit of vanilla. Taste is smoky, peaty, the strong sweet imperial stout flavors seem able to support the load however, lending some "balance" to the mix. Palate is heavy, full bodied with light-med carbonation. Quite nice once you can tame the peaty aroma.
