dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Pours black and looks a bit thin. No head whatsoever. Air bubbles is all I got from a very vigorous pour. Nose is heavy peat scotch smoke. hard to smell anything else through the smoke but I am getting a hint of apple or pear. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter throughout until the end when the smoke hits and leaves a long bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. I’m not a big smoked beer fan but I am starting to like them more and more thanks to this kind of beer. It’s a good one.

ClubGonzo (3985) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Jet black body, small off-white head. Aroma is crazy Islay whisky action, wood, licorice and hints of chocolate. Too much, but still nice in a perverted sense. Taste is ashes, smoke, peat, tar, dark chocolate and hints of licorice. Full body, soft carbonation. Nice despite its extreme BA profile.

wow! looking at the glass from far away didn’t convinced me but when my nose dipped in the glass I felt in love. great intense and complex taste, strong persistance. A beer to drink in a special occasion.

ShivanDragon (1518) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
flesje bij de mitra, zwart met minimale bruine kraag, met een moutig karakter in de aroma ( gebrande- geroostede- en turf/veen mouten). De smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig tot redelijk bitter, zeer sterke smaken, zwakke fruitigheid, redelijk kruidig. volle body, romig in de mond, lage co2, en een afdronk die kruidig is. Ken de Ardbeg whisky verder niet, maar blijkbaar een enorm turfachtige islay-whisky, dat is iig goed te ruiken en te proeven, behoorlijk complex, de overweldigende turf/veen/teer/rook en as vind ik iets té sterk aanwezig.
