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.

330ml bottle BB Dec 2020. Impenetrable black with nice foamy persistent mocha head. Oak and peat smoke immediately apparent in the aroma, along with vanilla, roasted meat, leather, dark chocolate. Very smoky and oaky in flavour too, with big molasses, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, dry oak tannins. Quite dry and roasty in the finish. Medium to full bodied and lightly acidic. Really good but would’ve benefited from further aging to round it.

On tap at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Pours a murky dark brown, almost black with a strong beige head. Aroma is totally like Isle Whiskey with peat notes. Taste is very complex: dark fruits, burnt malt, peat, smokey. Burnt malt, peat aftertaste. Amazing!

Marduk (6004) - 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!

330ml bottle (Uba ja Humal, Tallinn)
Black, tight persistent tan head. Really deep dry peaty burntness in the aroma, Tarry, smells like there was a fire here a week ago. Super rich full palate, hugs the tongue, pleasant carbonation stops it being heavy. Taste rich and burnt, a proper seriously stout stout. But a massive burnt tarry peatiness too, Sweetish, but not sugary or sticky. Lots of heavy in this, but amazingly it’s not that heavy. Don’t get 11% from this - in fact it’s remarkably mellow. Finish a pleasant burntness, no astringency, and some peatiness. Such a contrast against the Bruichladdich one, which was a booze bomb monstrosity. Still beer with stuff added, but good beer, and good stuff.

Bottle from Uba ja Humal. BB 12.2020. Pours somewhat reddish dark brown with a huge tan head. Looks stunning! The aroma is dominated by the peated malts, almost difficult to get any beer from it, but later on the sweet chocolaty and roasty base starts to come through. Tastes sweet, with the peat and roast giving it a somewhat black bread sourish character too. The finish is rather bitter. Silky smooth mouthfeel, subdued carbonation... So nice and soft in the mouth.... Good drinkablitiy, dangerously so - the alcohol only comes across as enjoyable heat in the throat. Superb stuff.
