Maakun (3626) - 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.

mariuspoenari (1424) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Smells like burnt rubber, with hints of vanilla and cocoa. The taste is terrible - smoke, burnt wood, rubber, acid, ugly stuff. As a disclaimer: I am not a big fan of beer aged in peated whiskey barrels.
