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.

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.

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks Naama. Black with a light brown head. Smoky peaty aroma with iodine. Sweet flavor with dark chocolate, peat, iodine, and a smoky burnt bitter finish. Full-bodied. A bit over the top, but still very nice.
