3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Papsoe for this beer.
It pours black with a generous tan head. The aroma is of whisky with some chocolate. The flavor is strongly of whisky, along with roasted notes and chocolate. It finishes with a big alcohol warming. All in all, a bit over the top for me, but definitely a must have for whisk(e)y lovers

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Jet black motor oil pour. Small dark brown head. Intense aroma of burnt, scorched malts, wood and burnt soy. The burnt ingredient theme is quite prevalent in this beer. Quite smoky, and the peat comes through. Good body, light carb. Intense bitterness and quite a bit of heat from the alcohol.
Better than the islay and cognac.

from Erzbierschof.ch - colour of a black hole with a dark beige foam löeft and a nice lacework; very roasted coffeish aroma with metallic notes, hazelnuts, vanilla as well as whisky and woody notes below; very thick and full-bodied, sticky and hugely bitter; very tasty; very long bitter roasted finish with notes of coffee, ashes, metal and licorice; very dry and with strong notes of warming alcohol - extreme stuff!
