Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours a black beer with a weak beige head. The aroma is weak with malt, fruit, roasted, dried fruit and alcohol. The flavor follows the nose with additional peat and smoke. The palate is smoke, roasted and sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Had this one right after the Moine BA version. Less smokey, but more towards licorice and more chewy / full bodied I think. Still has a lot of the peated earthy flavor as well. It?s a matter of personal taste which one is better. I like my stouts smoked and loved the earthy flavors of the Moine version, so I will go for that one. This one is a bit overkill for me.

Sooo much smoke on the aroma. Earthy peat. Not much else. Taste: good lord this is one hell of a full-bodied stout!! Lots and lots peat. Roasted malts. Little bit of coffee. But damn, so much peat.. Seems almost like a crossbreed between an Islay malt and a coffee stout. Strong stuff. I like it.

This is awesome. Smells and tastes quite smoky/peaty. This tastes so much like the Ardbeg that was in the barrel that I doubt it was empty when they barrelled the stout. Aftertaste lasts a long time.

ej (997) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours a viscous black body with a small bubbly dark tan head. Heavy peat and whiskey on the nose along with roasted malts and a whiff of alcohol. Taste is peat and roast. Bitter ashy flavors, notes of tar, leather and more peat and wood. A warming finish, along with a lasting peat flavor. Fairly flat, slick on the palate and medium to full bodied. Very nice if you like Islay whiskeys.

xlts (76) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 27, 2015
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 Pours black, tiny, beige-to-brown head. Aroma is EXTREMELY peaty and smoky, hints of dark malts. Taste is dominated by peated whisky notes balanced by a fair amount of sweetness. Some hints of dark fruit and caramel, but it definitely is one smoky monster. Great, bold and complex stout.
