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.

Draft 0.15l at Proeflokaal Arendsnest Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 03.06.2016. Taste with cika Boban. Pour it dark color with small black head. Aroma of coffee, some red fruits. Taste starts with maybe too much smoked woody feel for me, continues with coffee, at the end good balance, long finish with sourish after taste. Good

Arômes de chocolat, robe noire, mousse beige stable, faible carbonation. En bouche, cacao, amertume et grains torréfiés. Corps onctueux qui soutien le tout.

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!

Soft and creamy in mouthfeel, a lots of smoke in the taste. Good blending with the very nice imp stout

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!
