77ships (5900) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2015
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 doesnít 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 (1480) - 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, bakerís 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, Iím digging the Scotch but the beer less so. In this case, the Ledaig just overpowers everything else and if thatís the case, Iíd rather just have the whisky.

Zupastan (113) - 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. Itís an easy sipper, but quite balanced even tough the alcohol is quite noticeable. A thicker body would make this beer even better.

CraftBeerNick (1315) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle at home, 31st August 15. Pours black with a small neat head. Aroma is peat forward, some smoke, liquor. Taste is rich, peat, smoke, slight liquorice. Any sweetness is countered by the grata barrel ageing. Could be too whiskey forward for some, but this lovely.

Batavi (191) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2015
Fles gekocht bij Vinotake in Waalwijk, uitgeschonken in 33 cl. Struise glas. Schenkt zwartbruin uit in het glas, met een volle gelige, beige schuimkraag, die zich terugtrekt tot een dunnere schuimring. De aroma's geven uitzonderlijk veel tonen van de Ledaig vaten aan dit bier. Veel krachtige tonen van sterk geturfde Whisky. De aroma's zijn complex en krachtig, gebrande mout, rokerige turf, eikenhout, laurierdrop, medicinaal/jodium, teer, kampvuur, as, lichte chocolade en sigaren. Het smaakpallet is ook complex en diep met meer aardachtige rokerige tonen dan fruitige tonen. Weer whisky, turf, rook, teer en as. Daarna vooral veel laurierdrop, iets karamel/toffee. De smaak is eerst opvallend droog en bitter, daarna toch iets zoetige dropachtige tonen. De afdronk is lang, bitter en met een gebrande rokerige finish. Carbonatie is medium met een olieachtig mondgevoel. Ik vind deze barrel Aged Stout van Het Uiltje erg geslaagd, heel krachtig, rokerig en complex. Je moet wel een liefhebber zijn van de sterk geturfde whisky soorten om deze aroma's en smaken te kunnen waarderen.

Whoa, the scotch is heavy in this one. Huge aromas of scotch. Loads of Sweet peat, smoke and dark, charred roasty malts. The body and mouth feel are oily, and slick. The finish is medium bitter with some big smoky scotch flavours. Iím quite surprised how much of the whisky this barrel gave off to the beer. Huge woody, peaty, smoky notes. Quite nice if you enjoy some scotch.
