DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Tom L. Black with a tan head. Aroma of whiskey, roastiness, a bit of vanilla, wood, chocolate, cookie notes, peaty notes and some smokiness. Sweet flavor, smoky, somewhat peaty, with chocolate, whiskey, wood, roastiness, and a finish with some coffee and a bit of alcohol notes. Rather full-bodied, kinda silky.

Thick black full oily beer with an incredible brown head with lacing. Roasted coffee flavours with a little smoke. Sweet beer. Warming alcohol, nice winter beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jimmythespoon (455) - CYPRUS - DEC 11, 2013
Shared this bottle. Pitch black oily and very smokey. Full body and the smokiness from the barrel is incredibly intense. But still a good beer.

Prokroustis (685) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - DEC 7, 2013
Black body, small brown head. Excellent alcoholic malty aroma with caramel, dark chocolate, licorice, whiskey, hints of strawbberies. Incredible, smooth, warming palate. Excellent, balanced roasted malty flavour with dark chocolate, whiskey, vanilla, honey, a great bitter finish.

A dark brown beer, with a good light brown head. In the nose there is peat, roasted malts, coffee, sweetness of the alcohol and coffee. It is full bodied beer, with a nice carbonation. In the taste there is peat, oak, tanine, coffee and alcohol. The aftertaste is peated, dry and light sweet of the alcohol. A nice BA version of the IRS. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jur (296) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle @ home, from Mitra Beukenweg. Pours, thick dark brown, near black. Big bubbled chocolate brown head, which quickly fades. Nose is charcoal, liquorice, marshmallow. Full taste, thick mouthfeel. Quite bitter and smokey, with sweet undertone. Boozy. Nice.

greenclansman (787) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - NOV 27, 2013
Deep oily black color, with beige foam. Aromas of wood, whiskey, smokiness. Roasted malts, a hint of vanilla, smoked malts and whiskey in taste. Strong long alcoholic aftertaste. Very nice beer, but for sure a one to share,

Tomy63 (190) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2013
couleur très noire, peu de bulles. Nez sur le café, très fermier, un peu iodé, fruits cuits (prunes) à la Rochefort 10. Bouche très sucrée, sur le café, la tourbe se sent enfin, un peu d’amertume, texture très épaisse. Finale très longue, encore plus de tourbe, sur le café, très sucrée, un peu écoeurante quand même.

sir__v (625) - Lille, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2013
Color: nice deep black beer with no carbonation and small brown foam. Smell: licorice, sweet, malt and good peat presence. Taste: high malt and peat domination with sweet and sugar. Aftertaste: nice licorice and peat.
