dEnk (4087) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle @ home. Deep black, medium creamy tanned head. Aroma is liquorice, peat, whisky, hint of roasted malt. Flavour is deep peaty liquorice whiskey goodness with a nice roasted malt backbone. Palate is less thick than expected, but it really fits. More sweet peaty whisky and liquorice goodness in the finish. Liked the regular, but this is some awesome stuff!
