Cask at GBBF. Nose of peat and sea water, medicine. black with fine lace. flavor is sweet chocolate, peat, sea water, salt. big, raunchy peat is too much for me. interesting, though.

Pitch black color. Very big, no I mean huge peaty nose, nothin g but whiskey in the nose. Insane. Big peaty smokey mouth really rich. Over the top. Some imp stouts have stout flavor. This doesnít. Insanely big peaty and smokey, definitely speyside, but not my top choice. Still one of the most over the top beers you can get. Wow. Donít forget about the tar

Pours a beautiful black beer with a good very slow growing brown head. Like the smell. Smells a bit like glue. Coffee and roasted. Tastes very good. Nice roasted smokey coffee taste. Bit too low on the carbo but nice thick body and a dry texture.

Mooie stroperige zeer donkerbruine kleur met een creamy schuimkraag. Zware roasty koffie geur met tonen van chocolade en alcohol. Stroperige mondgevoel. Heeft duidelijke whisky tonen. Iets peated en ook een fijne rooksmaak. Proef de whisky beter dan bij de BA Bowmore. Verder koffietonen en een brandende nasmaak.

33 cl. bottle sampled @ Kraddel does 1K tasting. Procured by Kraddel. Cheers. Pours a blackish dark brown with only mocha bubbles for a head. Nose is heavy iodine, almost salty, thick soy sauce and dark fruits, simplistic. Taste is a bit dominated by soy sauce, iodine, thick black earth, bitter herbs and light dark fruit, reasonably peated. Rather flat and feels a bit almost watery as a consequence of this. I am a bit fan of the White Label series, this is still solid by far bellow the other in quality.

Donker/zwart bier heerlijk rook whisky lucht. Als je ogen dicht doet is het net of een islay whisky drinkt. Super bier. Ga nu verder met genieten. Thanks Bryan was het hameren wel waard ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

courtesy of fiulijn - black beer with no head retention; pretty smokey whisky-like aroma, notes of almonds and caramel; full-bodied, assertive and very tasty, some sweetness and a robust bitterness, peated, ashes and cacao

Bottle from Speciaal Bier Winkel, Bodegraven, bb 03/2015
parallel with the Bowmore version

Black color, with sparse bubbles, not yet a full head. The aroma has clearly more iodine and sea character than the Bowmore. Full bodied, with very good chocolate flavor, light dusty touch, some liquorice, some iodine and peat (less than suggested by the aroma); quite strong bitterness, but well balanced overall.
Very good, a bit too roasty and dusty though.
