CraftBeerNick (1538) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
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.

Ungstrup (32202) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has smoke, whiskey, roasted malt, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of iodine, smoke, chocolate, alcohol, roasted malt, and soy sauce, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

Bottled@PBF2012. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is peated malts, some smoke as well as mild liquorice and mild herbal notes. Flavour is liquorice, peat and some mild smoked notes. Very balanced and nice mellow Ardbeg flavours (Though the Ardbeg notes are very evident).

LoFi (1700) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle, thanks to MrHangover! Black with a light brown head that dissolves quickly. Huge aroma of peaty whisky, also chocolate and licorice. Taste: peaty whisky with notes of light tar and seaweed, coffee grounds, cocoa powder, salty licorice, light grapefruit, quite bitter. Full-bodied and smooth. Ardbeg is my favourite distillery, and I must say that those flavours go really well with the chocolate and licorice of the base beer. I am sure the same goes for the Caol Ila version, so I will be looking for that one.
