Tasted at Borefts 2012. Pours pitch black with no head at all. Aroma of peated whisky and roasted malts. Thick soy like mouthfeel. Taste is malty, some good liquorice, tar and whisky which makes a light burn at the final.

Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Big TCP nose, not pleasant. Palate is smooth and dry with mild fine carbonation. Smooth semi dry dark malts. Mild alcohol spice. Touch of dry lactose. Dominated by big TCP. Dry finish. TCP lingers on. Way too peaty TCP for me.

Black, no head. Aroma of smoke, peat and leather. Flavour is dry, woody, smokey. Has an oily texture with no carbonation. Overall it’s too peaty and smokey. Somewhat out of balance.

Iznogud (888) - CROATIA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml at Café Buitenlust, Oirschot. Pours black with beige head. Peat, smoke, roasted aroma. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, peat, smoke, whiskey. Warming alcohol. Complex. My first BA beer and I loved it. Great stuff.

Pitch black oily color. Nice smoked-peated aromas. Roasted malt taste...smooth smoked aftertaste.

jookos (2624) - FINLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Black, tan head. Deep dark roasted, charred, barley, old oak, bit acidic peat, dry chocolate. The aroma doesn’t really impress that much. Rather messy, over roasted, slight alcoholic. Fulll body. Roasty, sweets, bitters to leave a dry finish. Messy, but intensive. Feels like a homebrew actually. Not bad, just sort of chaotic.

maruno (33) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2014
In brand bulb glass, pours pure black without any real head till the last bubbles float up. Smell immediately remembers you what’s on the label: the smell of peaty Ardbeg whisky combined with some sweeter notes. Tastes sweet, ending in a very long bitter finish. Aroma’s of dark chocolate mixed with whisky and some hint of peaty smoke and wood. Very light carbonisation. This makes he hunger for Ardbeg as a desert. :) Best of whisky and stout.

g_georgiou (291) - CYPRUS - NOV 2, 2014
Dark brown to black body. No head except a brown ring. Heavy roasted malt aroma, wood, smoke. Taste is heavy sweet, light bitterness, smokey. Carbonation is flat, full body, long finish.

This beer really gives you the taste of the smokey whiskey whence it was bottled in. Unfortunately Ardbeg ian’t my favorite, but still an amazing beer.

MonsterMagnet (330) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle, bb 12-15. Pours black & tan. Aroma: peat, iodine, wood, liquorice. Taste: peat, dark chocolate, wood, coffee, almond, ash. Full bodied, creamy, velvety mouthfeel, sweet, with a loooong lasting roasty bitter, boozy finish with woody dryness and peaty goodness. This is one for peat lovers!
