Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are lots of peat, smoke, wood, roast malt and hops. Way too peated for me.

Moolesen (286) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 Bottle 33 cl. Number 4 of a range of 7 Emelisse IRS. What an evening... Strong nose of iodine and peat. Extreme peated tast. It’s strong in aroma but even stronger in the taste. This is a beer you either love or hate. There is simple no mid way. After 15min. In the glass (needed to get used to it) the aroma went from extreme to very pleasant. Smoked bacon, peat and iodine are strongly present, but now forms a really nice beer.

gEUS (1345) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Pours extremely deep brown to black with a creamy small darkbeige head. Highly roasted aroma, burnt wood, oak, smoky peat. Big body with nice roasty notes, sweetness in the middle, bitterness towards the end, peated aftertaste. Other taste components are salt, soy sauce, burnt suger, oyster sauce. Excellent beer.

Bottle from brewery. Black colour, brown head. Full oily body with soft carbo makes it great to drink. Lots of peat and a nice malty backing with chocolate and some coffee.

allmyvinyl (5434) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours blackest black with a tan head. Aromas of TCP, peat, vanilla. Taste is like chewing a stick. Too woody for me by far. Much better aroma than taste.

McNeillR (1594) - SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Dark treacley brown with a thick but thin spread tan head. Big smoky TCP nose, clean profile of the Bunnahabhain rather than being softened by the beer though - and a tidy Whisky it is. Nice oily and gravelly smoked. Cold potato skin peelings, very woody middle. Gristley finish. Decent enough, would like to see a bottle softened in a few years.

Bottle, Black Friday Tasting
