Marduk (6011) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2016
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Pitch black color. Huge size, brown head, stays. Peat, smoky, woody, oak, whiskey, sweetish in aroma. Peat, bit earthy, oak, smoky, woody, sweet in taste. Smoked peat is everywhere in aftertaste. Long lasting pleasure in mouth. Soft carbonation. Tannin-like "bitterness". Drying mouthfeel, but then again awakes saliva glands. Fantastic brew! More!

sebletitje (9033) - 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.

Countbeer (5982) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, 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.
