larsga (7219) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2011
Medium dark brown head. Opaque black body. Smoky whisky and citric hop aroma with earthy roasty chocolate notes. Dry-sweet intensely toffeeish chocolate and smoky whisky taste with earthy alcohol notes. Full-bodied. Mild, soft, round mouthfeel. Dry citric hoppy smoky whisky aftertaste with sooty chocolate and earth notes. Excellent! The prominence of the hops and alcohol are the only real minuses here. (0.5l bottle.)

skortila (5160) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2010
Bottled. The aroma has a lot of peated medicin, coffee and roast. Black coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is sweet, bitter and has a lot of iodeine, some chocolate, coffee, roast. Way too much medicin for me, lacking the balance.

caesar (6473) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2010
Bottled. Dark color, short head. Aroma of peat, overwhelming peat. Dry, islay. A bit too much of the all the peat for me.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - NOV 28, 2010
Batch 415 Black, with just a hint of a golden rim. Beige head. Summary; Ill go straight to the summary on this; I LOVE it! That is because its a blend of my 2 favorite things; Islay whisky and good beer; It got a big peaty nose, with smoke, hay, bonefire, seawead and minerals. The same huge islay flavours you get in the nose. That being said, its to much. Its too peaty, even for a peat-head as myself. Thats why the overall score is low, its off-balance. I love it; but 1 glass is way enough!

olsvammel (5719) - rebro, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle at BWF 2010. It poured a pitch black liquid with a small brown head. Strong and complex flavour of whisky, smoke, chocolate and coffee. Smooth mouthfeel and very thick body. Complex and very nice beer to lean back and sip at.

shrubber85 (10357) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle. Sweet coffee, peat, iodine, and seaweed aroma. Opaque black color with nice tan head. Sweet coffee malt initially followed by peat, seaweed, iodine flavor. Finishes with a strong quinine bitterness. An extremely well made beer - I love coffee and Islay scotch but the combination of the two is probably something I wont try again.
