willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2010
20100515 Sampled at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Spring Gathering. Black color without much head. Creamy, thick palate at first, becomes greasy, then gritty, like old motor oil. Very peaty, very smoky, and those might be admirable in scotch but in this case it comes across as an old tire being used as a fire ring.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Notes of crude oil, cleaning chemicals and medicine (hospital?), bbq pork with big old charcoal briquettes. THick mouthfeel. Good.

500 ml bottle; huge thanks to kkearn for the trade; well, someone had to follow up the Mikkeller X Calvados and that sorry task fell to this one; poured dense black with thin, creamy tan head; lovely peaty nose of scotch and creamy roast; meaty, salty and dry; coffee pretty much covered up here with more meaty, peaty and dry roast throughout; pretty killer but nearly as decadent as the Mikkeller Calvados; silky texture with almost oily mouthfeel; love the meaty peat here; great stuff overall

malrubius (2241) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottle at Peter’s 2nd annual spring gathering. Black with ring and lace. Roasted very smoky wood chocolate coffee aroma. Very smoky woody chocolate coffee with dark chocolate bitter smoky woody finish. Soft warming palate. Very smoky, like it was brewed during a forest fire. Awesome. Would love to get my hands on a whole bottle of this.

MrChopin (3810) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Taste at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Gathering
Dark brown pour, thin wispy white head. Nose of rubber cement, plum, smoke, and faint peat. Flavor is heavy iodine and light chocolate, some warmth coming in the peaty finish. Body is quite thin, and with warmth, the booze comes on strong. I love Islay stuff, but this was too much barrel and not enough base.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of peat smoke, dark roasted grain and wood. Flavor of dark roast, hint of cardboard, wood, peat smoke. Mouth feel is heavy body with very low carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!

thirdeye11 (5860) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2010
(50cl bottle batch 415 bottled 09-03-09 best by 09-03-12) jet black pour with light tan bubbles. Nose of burnt wood, , whiskey, peat and coffee. Taste of very burnt toast/wood, whiskey, coffee and dry cocoa. Medium thick body with an alcoholic finish. Too much going on here, but still enjoyable in a small dose.

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle at Peter’s 2nd annual spring gathering thanks to Brian from 12%. Pours jet black with a thin tan head. Huge peat and smoke. Smells a little like a permanent marker. Loads of smoky peat throughout this, somewhat obscuring some of what makes the weasel usually such a solid beer. Rather awesome, but a bit challenging.

bottle courtesy of deflagro, thanks! pours great, nice creamy head. this was just too smokey for me. i loved the highland weasel, this is just masking so much of the beer for me. i also am not too fond of smoke flavor, and this is no exception, i am going to stay away from islay stouts from now on!
