Cuso (4756) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle from trade with Countbeer, many thanks. Almost black color with small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, peat, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, earthy notes. Taste, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, medicinal notes, licorice, peat, wood. Alcohol is well present, but not in disturbing way. Tasty, full bodied beer.

Taste comprises charred wood, bitter chocolate, earthy, dirt, tar, ash, smokey notes, TCP. Medium bodied with bollocks, fine carbonation with a subtle warming alcohol burn. Decent PIS (Peated Imperial Stout - yeah I crowned that fucker!). Alcohol is well integrated.

Scopey (7079) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2013. It pours near black/darkest brown with medium tan head. The nose is rich, roasty, medicinal, peat, earth, juicy, whisky, seaweed and toffee. The taste is rich-roasted malt, coffee, earth, peat, medicinal, ash, good bitterness, warming alcohol, TCP, wood and seawater. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Big Islay character. Rather delicious.

Shared a bottle with peltmeister. Zeer donker bier bijna geen schuim. Geur is koffie, chocola, alcohol. Smaak is gebrand, duidelijk in de smaak terug te vinden dat ie op whiskey vaten heeft gelegen. Heerlijk stroperig met een mooie body die blijft hangen.

KyotoLefty (6574) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2013
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.

TimE (3263) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2013
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 doesn’t. 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. Don’t forget about the tar

From cask. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is iodine and dark tarish. Thick malty, iodine and tarish. Lasting dark smoked and thick peated.

Abijen (1501) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2013
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.

Bosbouw (1305) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2013
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.
