DwarfeD (1039) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
33cl bottle from BierNavigatie. Dark brown (almost black) with a small tan head. Full body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with some coffee and herbal tones. Coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, wood, herbs, warming alcohol and dark fruits. A woody imperial stout with a nice whiskey vibe.

Garlic_of_Doom (474) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a fizzy creamy head, rests down to a ring. Aroma has peat, smoke cigar, slight alcohol Taste is sweet up front followed by peat, cigar roasted malt, slight hop bitterness. Full bodied, low carbonation, thick mouth feel. Peaty, smokey after taste.
Sure, the barrel ageing takes a bit over hand but hey, I love peaty stouts. :)

Maarten1993 (331) - - JUL 9, 2014
Drank in Tilburg 08-07-2014. Good beer. Hardly any carbonation. Smells like oak/roasted and smoke (strong smoke). Different BA taste than normal, hardly any sweetness or bourbon hints. Very complex taste of dark chocolate, coffee, slightly roasted, smoke and a lot of other flavors that I can’t name very good. Nice.

sebletitje (6750) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011
Sample kindly of Kees, headbrewer @ Emelisse. Holy smoke, this beer rocks! This beer might have reconciled me with Islay peated beers. Brune foncée laissant une fine pellicule dorée sur le verre. Arôme de tourbe et Speyside gardant aussi ce bouquet de stout, chocolat et malt grillé avec une légère torréfaction. En bouche, pas mal de tourbe et cendre, alcool réchauffant avec en retrait une douceur agréable de malt grillé et caramel aux notes de café. Je ressens aussi une présence de fleur presque de bruyère le tout gardant ce côté cendre.

yespr (31470) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
33 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a small to no head. Aroma is tarish and burne dark malty. Sweet malty, tarish and dark roasted malty flavoured. Dry and roasted malty finish, lasting tarish note.

Travlr (12260) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 7, 2012

Countbeer (4517) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2012
Botte: Medium fluffy tan head, disappears slow and leaves a sticky foam on the glass and vast tan lacing on top of a black colored beer. Smell glue, wood glue, whiskey tones, hint of sharper plastic and hints of coffee, cream and vanilla. Taste lots of earth, some roasted barley malts, bitter, light creamy sweet tints, wood, tar, wood lactose bacteria, hint of clay, woody herbs, some chocolate. A bit weak aftertaste of earth, medium bitter, some bitter chocolate and roasted herbs/hops. Low carbo, soft oily mouthfeel, full body and a creamy oily texture. This beer is ok, maybe a bit out of tune, but guess that they have to figure out how long to add these Imperial Stouts to such specific barrels.

lusikka (6340) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 06/2015.
Pours a dark brown, black colour without a head. Aroma is really intense; tar, smoked wood and peat. Flavour of strong smoked wood, peat, salty licorice, burnt malts and whisky after a while. Mellow sweet toffee in the back. Full bodied, oily smooth mouthfeel and a warming smoky finish where the whisky dominates. Heavy stuff and works well for me.

TBone (12815) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2012
Bottled 330ml (PBF, BB 03/2015)
Opaque black color, small beige head. Beautiful Ardbeg smokey aroma. Medium-bodied. Lots of wood, islay whiskey, roastyness, alcohol. This is full of Ardberg which is not bad ... it is excellent.
