Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has smoke, whiskey, roasted malt, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of iodine, smoke, chocolate, alcohol, roasted malt, and soy sauce, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2012
Bottle from De Bierkoning. OIly black body with razorthin tan head. Nose of chocolate, malts, whiskey. Taste is dark chocolate, lots of peat and oil in there. High octane stuff. Some bitter and licorice in the finish. Very good but hardcore.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 28, 2012
Bottled@PBF2012. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is peated malts, some smoke as well as mild liquorice and mild herbal notes. Flavour is liquorice, peat and some mild smoked notes. Very balanced and nice mellow Ardbeg flavours (Though the Ardbeg notes are very evident).

LoFi (1550) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle, thanks to MrHangover! Black with a light brown head that dissolves quickly. Huge aroma of peaty whisky, also chocolate and licorice. Taste: peaty whisky with notes of light tar and seaweed, coffee grounds, cocoa powder, salty licorice, light grapefruit, quite bitter. Full-bodied and smooth. Ardbeg is my favourite distillery, and I must say that those flavours go really well with the chocolate and licorice of the base beer. I am sure the same goes for the Caol Ila version, so I will be looking for that one.

Embrouille (2819) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Bottled 33cl. Strong smokiness. Leather showing up. Full bodied. Band-aid reminiscence throughout. Very nice.

sic1314 (3048) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2013
Poured an oily black with a small, tight tan head which quickly disappeared. Aroma of peatyness overpowers everything else in the nose (good job I like my Islay malts). Smooth, creamy medium body. flavour is of the peaty roasted malt dominating, with a very dry, bitter aftertaste. Excellent for what it is, but a very acquired taste.

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2013
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 27 July 2013) Black colour with foamy, brown head. Smoky, roasted, malty nose with oak wood, Islay whisky, peat, tar, soy sauce and roasted malt. Malty, roasted taste with notes of oak wood, peat smoke, liquorice, soy sauce, dark bread and a certain roasty bitterness in the finish. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Hardly in exceptional balance, with the oak wood and whisky character taking over a touch too much. But then I love Ardbeg whisky, so I can’t really complain. Quite extreme, but in my opinion very nice.

Niller (536) - Hammel, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from Voldby. Black colour with a small off-white head. Smoky aroma of roasted malt, licorice and notes of chocolate. Very smoky taste. Roasted malt, some licorice, chocolate and maybe some coffee too. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Smoke and licorice in the finish.

gyllenbock (4398) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle, thanks Eddan. Black with a small tan head. A lot of whisky both in the aroma and taste, also salt, peat and licorice. Not balanced but a nice beer to sip. The body was full and the aftertaste very long. Not a beer for the weak ones.

Hansen (6437) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2014
Black coloured. Has a light brown head. Heavy dark aroma, phenolic, transformer oil, some dark sweet sugars too.Great. Flavor is heavy sweet, some laqurice, soft, light phenolic notes again, moderate bitter finish, still nice. Syrupy texture.
