JulienHuxley (4136) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle from Belgium. Thick, thick, thick oily black pour with a creamy brown foam that lags 3 seconds after the end of the pour it takes so much time for the carbonation to surface. Aroma is really peaty, iodine, smoky with rich dark chocolate aromas as well. Taste is sweet, saline, strong smoky finish, lots of peat, dark chocolate and molasses. Palate is perfect, so thick, not cloying, just enough carbonation and just warm enough alcohol finish. Not a big fan of these Islay scotch barrel aged stouts but this one was well done.

33cl. Bottle.
Pours black with tan bubbly head.
Aroma loads of peat and smoke, caramel, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, whisky, vanilla.
Taste smoke, peat, caramel vanilla sweet, roasted coffee bitter.
Mouthfeel thick oily.
Amazing beer, the smoke, sweetness and bitter are well balanced.

Dark black oily appearance. Smokey, peaty whiskey aromas dominate. In the flavour the bittersweet dark roast malt is evident along with the earthy peat. Smooth, rich finish. Quite boozy.

rikstar (1305) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2014
0,33l fles gedeeld met nikos, inktzwart met bruine gist deeltjesz de geur vooral cacao, leer en hout en ook de alcohol. In de smaak vol en zoet daarna jodium, hout en trekkend naar salmiak en teer in de nasmaak. Er gebeurd erg veel met mijn smaakpapillen, hefti in de peat.

bytemesis (4468) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle thanks to MrH! Pours opaque black with a small secondary brown creamy head that dissipates as slowly as it forms leaving nice lacing. Aroma is peat, roasty, chocolate, scotch. Flavor is super peaty, smokey, scotch, light sweet and medium bitter. Fullish body, creamy mouthfeel. You need to be a scotch lover to like this one!

Douberd (3130) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter. ABV 11% Black colour on the body, a thin line of brown foam as head, along with big bubbles. Okay retention nevertheless, light lacing left on the glass. Lots of roasted malts on the aroma, coffee, light vanilla, light alcohol. Taste follows the nose, lots of roasted malts, vanilla, whiskey, coffee, the alcohol there but very subtle. Mildly bitterness on the aftertaste. Full body but I find it just a tiny bit thinier than other versions I’ve had. The carbonation very good as usual. Another very good one on this White Label IRS series.

antonstoop (241) - - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle 330ml. It is a deep brown to black beer with a creamy small darkbeige head. A medium to full bodied beer, with no carbonation. Nose is highly roasted aroma, burnt wood, oak, smoky peat. Taste is roasted, sweet in the middle, bitter towards the end, peated aftertaste. A good peated ba of the IRS, nice to see they took the peated bunnahabhain. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
