Hereandbeer (12) - BELGIUM - APR 25, 2014
UPDATED: APR 26, 2014 Dark as the night, sweet chocolate barrel-tastic nose. Thick syrupy body, sweet dark malts, chocolate and coffee notes with undertones of tropical fruits. Finishes with a nice heavy bitterness leaving you wanting more.

Bontus (625) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle @ ACBF2012. Pours ink black, a bit shiny. Peated nose, very strong one dimensional aroma’s, but in a good way. Chinese ink & soy sauce up front, something iodine like in it. Slick MF, a bit salty taste. Very balanced, more a Porsche than a Dodge Viper.

dEnk (3734) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2012
Draft @ acbf. Aroma is huge roast, coffee, liquorice and more. Thin layer of peaty ardbeg covering the whole. Nice. Flavour is a nice balance between the beer and the whiskey. The roast had some smoke over it, the malt some peat, the coholate some wood. Nice one.

skortila (4433) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2012
The aroma has chocolate, peat, roast. Black coloured with not much head. The taste is slightly bitter, bit sugary sweet, has chocolate, whisky, peat. the peat is not too overwhelming considering the Ardbeg. Nice one.

esp0r (1908) - NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
Sample from bottle at Haand Festival 2012
Black, thin laced tanned head. Smells of peaty and smoky islay whisky, some liquorice, coffee and roasted malts hidden behind that islay wall. Fantastic aroma i must say. Nice malty body, heavy sweet, then there really is some nice dark flavors ruled by the peaty whisky. Full body, soft carbonation, some bitter finish. This is beer for the whisky lover for sure

On draft @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. Black body with a small beige head. Nice aroma of dark peated malt, roast and whisky. Flavor is sweet roasted malt, peat, whisky, oak and a nice bitterness. Full body and peated whisky in aftertaste. Very nice.

tmrmwel (856) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours very dark, almost black, with a very little but coloured creamy head. Aroma is definitely smoky, with notes of burned malts, peat, BA oak and some sweet toffee thrown in. The body is full and oily, with a very soft carbonation. Flavour is nice and dark with chocolate, liquorice and coffee. Nice finish.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Black, tan head. Chocolate and beef jerky on the nose – a good amount of peat in here overlaying the cacao and molasses. Flavor is a bit boozier, with the smoke holding out until the end. Not too thick, very drinkable, with a really lovely peat overtone. Really nice – great balance between the peat and sweetness of the underlying stout.
