Pours jet black with a finger of tan head. Aroma of rich chocolate, coffee, caramel smoke & oak. Taste hits you with the sweetness of the stout, then bam smoke, char and ash from the Islay barrel. Quite intense. As it fades the coffee and roasted dark malts rear their heads and it finishes with some hop bitterness. Thick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Very nice beer from the beer geek series, had to try because I love Islay whiskeys, and it does not disappoint.

Huhzubendah (3237) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Viscous dark brown body with a filmy beige collar. Grandiose aroma of peat, scotch, with some chocolate and a. Islay scotches are my favorite of the single malts and this certainly translates to this beer. Silky smooth body and loaded with delicious flavor. Mm hmm.

Saeglopur (1438) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 19, 2016
330 ml bottle from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Black body, with a small, dense, dark coffee-colored head.
Aroma of dark chocolate, barrel, whisky, molasses, liquorice, tobacco, some coffee, some dark fruits.
Tastes of whisky, peat, tobacco, cocoa powder, coffee, some liquorice, some alcohol.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes roasty, dry, astringent, a bit alcoholic, with tobacco, peat, cocoa, coffee, some smoke.

I don’t like peat notes too much, but they aren’t too dominant here, so still enjoyable for me. Quite smooth to drink for the ABV and well balanced, with enough sweet and roasty notes and a pleasantly dry finish. Overall not a bad beer at all, but my least favourite barrel aged Brunch Weasel variant.

Maakun (2363) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Pitch black with light brown bubbly head. Lots of coffee, peat, scotch, dark chocolate, some fresh green leaves, marzipan, thick brown sugar syrup and raisins. There’s some obvious peat here, but it’s not overpowering the nice roasted malts and balanced by a syrupy sweetness. Over medium sweet with roasted bitter finish. Full bodied with sticky feel and soft carbonation.
