Theydon_Bois (8395) - 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 (2038) - 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.

From bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Black with no head. Mostly smoked peat whiskey onthe nose but also sweet and roasted notes. Heavy ash and fireplace notes on sweet roasted flavors. Full bodied and smooth to drink but a dry mouth at the end of the lengthy finish.

Bottle. Pitch black color, beige head. Aroma of judain, peat and lots of whisky aromas. Flavor and mouthfeel are quite boozy but still very nice to drink.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C. The beer is black with a thin beige head. The aroma brings a grandiose serving of Ardbeg. For you single malt scotch aficionados, especially those who favor those great whiskeys from Islay, you will likely enjoy this. Those less inclined to sip a peaty scotch on a rainy night may find this offering harsh and offensive. The flavor offers notes of chocolate, oak, vanilla, peat, smoke. A young Ardbeg character really dominates every aspect of the beer. Some searing alcohol heat in the finish with lingering sea salt and maritime character, medium to full bodied, fairly viscous. I really enjoyed this, though this is certainly not for everybody.
