sebletitje (6895) - 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.

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.

Countbeer (4726) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (9925) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Cask at GBBF - 08/08/12. Jet black appearance with a thin tan head that soon dissipates. Nose is full on Ardbeg whisky, a little leather and roast malt in the background and a whiff of booze. Tastes as nose, a little licqourice and a metallic tinge. Sweet tasting, Good smooth mouthfeel with little noticeable carbonation, slightly sticky and cloying in a boozy whisky finish,

Vignale (2183) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2012
Kolsvart och i princip utan kolsyra och skum. Massivt rökig charkdoft. Som att lukta på Ardbeg minus stickig alkohol. Munkänslan är len och ganska rund, smaken är kärvare, bränt trä, kol och tjära, mörkt rökt oxkött, liten sötma och antydan till bitter finish. Ett massivt och maffigt öl och det mest Islaywhisky- liknande jag druckit.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 Bottle from ABC beers Den Haag. Nice smokey aroma. Lovely rich and very smokey flavour, smooth and long lasting on the palate. A lovely beer and worth hunting down! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
