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.

ShivanDragon (2001) - 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.
