Medium, dark beige-brown head over black beer. Coffee, peat, peated whisky, tarr, phenols, earthy - but everything rather brusque. Sharp, burning and phenolic, tarred and burnt flavours. Somewhere, somehow mint. Unrefined. Very well-bodied, viscous-slick, fiery alcoholburn. The right flavours are all there, but, as said, quite unrefined. Mind you, I’d never heard about this Mull whisky before.

Bottle shared during Scopey’s 5K tasting - Croydon, London. Many thanks to Josh! Pours deep brown with a tight, beige cream head. Heavy peat aroma, with little else. Medium to big sweet flavor with more dominant peat character, moderate chocolate, alcohol, burnt wood. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with further hefty peat, dark sugars, dried dark fruits, cocoa. Good stuff overall, but you would need to enjoy peat.

Thanks to Marcelo for sharing this one - pour dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has fresh earthy healthy soil, rich peat, some roast and fresh cut grass. It has a medium / full body with soft carbonation. The flavor starts with more roast, but still crazy earthy peaty campfire notes. There is a weird earthiness I can’t really put into words. The finish is on the rough side. Not really for me, but glad I got to try it - does seem like it would be good for those that like the peaty thing though.

Brutale Geschichte, die ich so nicht nochmal erleben möchte. Durch und durch Leder nebst Rauch. Krasses Zeug, dass einem den Mund brutalst verzieht. Vielleicht etwas für notorische Kettenraucher. Brrr....

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle bought in Eindhoven. The beer has got a deep black colour with a small head and smooth body. Aroma of leather and handbag. Taste of handbag, leather, cigars and peat. Handbaggy finish. Couldn’t drink it.

330 ml. bottle BBF 03/2016. Pours pitch-black with a hue of extremely dark brown, head is super creamy whipped mocha, gorgeous. Nose is very heavy on the whiskey, the first thing that hits your nose is just pure whiskey basically, light iodine, peat and in the back you get light licorice, molasses & roast. It should be bad & unbalanced but the whiskey is actually quite nice and of good quality, the base doesn’t feel watery or anything, oddly I find it quite enjoyable. Taste is big warming great quality whiskey mixed with very creamy mocha, chocolate mousse, chocolate milkshake, light sweetish roast, lightly bitter molasses & burned herbs with light peat in the back, faint burned tires (peat-style), warming, light iodine, faintly salty almost. Super creamy body. The peat is low at first but really starts building up the more you drink of it. Very intense but in a fascinating & good way. This is almost fine whiskey with a hugely creamy chocolate mousse & milkshake body. The whiskey is very big on this one in a good way. The alcohol feel on this one is big but it just reminds you of a fine whiskey. It is an interesting beer, a wonderful exercise in excess & non-balance but in a way it is balanced, the characters do complement each other and add other elements, the whiskey gives it most of the taste & the beer gives it a substantial and creamy quality. This is the 5th beer that I try from this series & it is very easy the one that impressed me the most. Fascinating beer, Het Uiltje makes beers with very extreme and confronting flavours but they do them in a very unique and approachable (very often successful fashion). Let us hope that they continue doing that & not turn into a caricature because they are walking a very fine line here. This one is a very slow sipper, intense to say the least.

Black with a nice chocolate head that leaves some good lacing. Aroma is smoke, wet wool, fireworks, whiskey, dark fruit. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, smoky on the palate with a peaty finish. Taste is smoke, leather, chocolate, dates, whiskey, peat.

Sarlacc83 (1540) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle thanks to Marcelo. A: Thick black body, mocha head, light lacing. N: Black olive, peat, campfire ash, band-aid, phenols, baker’s chocolate, and some coffee. T: Big time peatiness and a melding of sweetness. M: Heavy oily body, no alcohol presence, soft carbonation. O: Just like the Clynelish, I’m digging the Scotch but the beer less so. In this case, the Ledaig just overpowers everything else and if that’s the case, I’d rather just have the whisky.

Zupastan (153) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Dark brown to almost black beer wit a small beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is peat, smoke, alcohol, roasted malts. Almost no carbonation, body is rather thin. Taste is peat, smoke, roasted malts, a lot of alcohol, but still quite balanced. Aftertaste is peat, roasted malts and an alcohol burn that last a while. It’s an easy sipper, but quite balanced even tough the alcohol is quite noticeable. A thicker body would make this beer even better.
