What an extreme taste. Strong notes of peated whiskey in this dark and oily IRS. Drinking this is a special experience.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ caesar, from brewery. Black colour, tan head. Nose is peat, roasted malts, band aid, faint coffee. Flavour is peaty, roasted malts, a bit smoky and ashy. Finish is dry and peaty. Not a big fan of the peated whiskeys, especially when it overpowers everything else.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, medium sample. Pitch black, short brown head. Aroma is heavily peated, some peat, more peat and even some more. Some bready roasted malts in the back. Again the smooth milk chocolat from the base beer is completely overpowered by dry and peaty whisky. Why? Not my kind of ’beer’.

Bottle. Pours black with a finger thick mocha head. Aroma is smoke, peat, oak, oil, tobacco and tar and probably a good deal of pirates’ ballast. Wonderful! Body is full and creamy, with soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with chocolate, tobacco, leather and oak barrels giving a sweet chocolatey finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, reawakening, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Aroma has intense whisky notes, leather, tar, peat and - eh, yes - leather, surpressed dark malty notes with a touch of treacle and, not to forget, leather. Taste is initially moderately sweet dark malty, constantly intensening whisky notes come in, take over and predominate the long lasting finish: leather, peat, tar, petrol; intense, though still integrated really bitter hop notes accompany and support the whisky flavours in the finish; oily texture, slightly sticky palate, relatively light body. My criticism of BA Impy Stouts has mainly been guided by a distinction between integrated BA flavours / predominating resp. masking BA flavours until now. This is the first case of a real development, i.e. a rush of the BA flavours which still remain integrated even in the finish. Lovely, brilliant example of a BA Impy Stout.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Zwart, schuimige bruine kraag en schenkt als motorolie
Aroma: moutig, koffie, caramout, gebrande mouten en een mega aroma van turf/veen
Smaken: zoals het aroma al doet vermoeden is de smaak gigantisch overdreven qua turf, stevig zoet, matig bitter, te sterke smaken, stevig gemout( aardse-, gebrande-, geroosterde en caramouten), rokerigs
Zacht mondgevoel, medium tot volle body, olieachtig/glad in de mond
Één van de meest extreme biersmaken, kan niet zeggen dat ik hem erg waardeer daar ik het allemaal veel te overheersend vind smaken naar turf.
