Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 2, 2012
33cl bottle pours very dark mahogany with tan like head of foam. The aroma offers up a mild level of chocolate brownie, dark roasted maltiness and then pretty bold peaty band aid like notes. The taste has rich dark roasted malts to burnt malts as well as a mild band aid nuanced peat. Into the finish it picks up pretty firm and bold peatiness that goes hand in hand with a smooth rich yet mildly rubbery band aid finish.

BREWMUSKCLES (2154) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Guess it’s been awhile since "JACK DAYS" cause this brew reeks of it. Sweet bourbon and charcoal complete with lighter fluid. Mellow Fishy finish with accompanying anise, chlorine and fruit.

dEnk (3463) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is well, peat and jd, but in a very nice balance. Some roast shining through. Flavour starts with an intense peat and roast bitterness, followed by some jd sweetness, followed by some alcohol, followed by malt and roast. Lingering on and on. Awesome, the peat and the jd really are a great combo.

laiti (4943) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2012
33 cl bottle (9,5%) @ home, BBE 09/2013
Aroma has peat, vanilla, tobacco and some urinal cake. Flavour has lots of tobacco, some ash, salty licorice and peat. Interesting stuff, something here disturbs me a bit. Maybe it is the peat and tobacco.

330 ml bottle. BBE 09/2013.
Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head. Strong aroma of peat, tar, tobacco, licorice and some roastiness. Strong flavour of roasted malts, peat, tobacco, salty licorice and quite heavy bitterness. Smooth bourbon as well. Full bodied and a long, bitter, peated finish with loads of roastiness and salty licorice. Quite an aggressive package really, loads of roasted malts, peat and bitter hops.

Flavor is lightly sweet, with again peat, roast, chocolate. Alcohol feel is strong at first, but gets milder on the way. Soft carbonation. Finishes leathery and bitter. Very complex and very good.

Pours pure black with small tan head. Nose is mildly smokey, chocolate and some dark fruit. Tastes is smokey, sweet and bitter on the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy yet sharp, heavy body. This is so much better than I had hoped for.

tiong (3069) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2011
330ml bottle from Cracked Kettle

Pours pitch black with a tiny and sticky light brown head. Strong aroma of peated and roasty malts and hints of smoke, oak, vanilla and whisky. Taste is quite fruity and roasty with whisky notes coming in in the finish. Notes of vanilla, oak, peated malts and fruity hops. Finish is strong with whisky notes and roasted malts. Okay, quite strongly peated imperial stout but the whisky notes fit in quite nicely.
