PotjeBier (1641) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2010
On tap @ In De Wildeman. Almost black, no head. Smells of whisky/bourbon, wood, chocolate, coffee. Taste is malty sweet with hints of smoke/peat/ash. Finishes with more roast, ash, bitter. Quite easily drinkable because of little carbonation.

bierkoning (10155) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2010
From tap @ BBF 2010. Dark chocolate and peated whisky notes in the aroma. Very sweet, malty flavor with candied sugar and the peated whisky notes of authentic Bowmore. Oaky. Excellent!

Vaiz (3330) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2010
Tap at 2nd BBF @ De Molen. Thick whisky aroma with loads of hops added. The barrel aging added some intense peated and iodine flavors. Lost some body and carbonation though. Very tempting and interesting brew but quite hard to drink. Medicinal and rough. Still nice though.

Draught at Borefts Bier Festival 2010. Pitch black coloured with a small beige head. Sweet and roasted aroma of dark chocolate and berries with notes of whisky. Sweet and roasted flavour of peat and whisky with notes of dark chocolate. Roasted finish.

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2010
Beige hea, as soon gone as formed over liquid that looks like ink for all the world. Liquorice, black cardemom peel, dry coffee, hints at peat and fusels. More whisky in the flavour, quite dry initially but with a sweeter sequel. Again liquorice, wood, mushrooms. Retronasal the fusels, the benzene-like aromas come out in force, whilst the ethanol strengthens the sweetness. Velvety MF, but the fiery throatwarming reveals the alcohol. Too light to be viscous, but oily at least. A very nice sipping beer, but somehow, the 75cl botlle seems a rather daunting prospect. I put an evening to it... I liked the fine peat aroma especially.

Cask Stillage at the GBBF, Earl’s Court 04/08/2010 Some whisky aroma. Black strong in alcohol very smooth and a little sweet on the palate. Hoppy with a hint of dryness in a coffee roast and whisky finish.
