ClubGonzo (4901) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a pitch black body with virtually no head. Aroma is smoke, peat, alcohol, tar, charcoal, dark malts, syrup and hints of heather herbs and deep sugar tones. Taste is syrup, charcoal, peat, syrup, brown sugar, smoke, peat and hints of caramel and grains. Full, oily body, soft to medium carbonation. Pretty decent compared to the other versions but not really that impressive despite the barrel, which definitely provides direction to this otherwise rather undrinkable beer.

ej (1041) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle shared with BBGTC. Pours black with a bubbly dark tanned head. Aroma is peat, roasted grains and sweet. Taste is peated with malts and wood. Notes of leather, ash and alcohol. Body feels too thin for the high abv and it is very softly carbonated.

Ughsmash (7426) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottled, BB 7/15/19. Poured deep brown (not quite black) with just a bigger-bubbled ring for head. The aroma was on the heavy side with peated malts, licorice, and soy leading.. some vanilla and peppery alcohol too.. it relied heavily on the whiskey, and I really enjoyed said whiskey character. The flavor found mostly soy at the core, with veins of licorice and burnt black malts through it.. the whiskey gave smokey character around the edges, but seemed to be a shadow of the nose.. peppery alcohol rose as the drink progressed, and burned the tongue a little after the finish. Heavy-bodied and boozy, but surprisingly thin at times on the palate.. this wasn’t entirely focused, but it had a lot of very good elements.
