No head, as black as the night. Powerful malt smell. Slightly acidic to the tongue, for an IRS. Nice coffee flavours, and the whisky is noticeable. Not quite dark enough for a higher rating, but overall a good experience.

Scopey (11343) - 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.

TimE (4695) - 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
