Pitch black as usual. Smoky nose, but not really any coffee left. Nice peaty smoke on the tounge, dry and ashtray harsh with a nice whisky vanilla finish. But still feels like the barrel takes over, no coffee left.. Still really a nice beer though.

Un anneau de mousse flotte sur une robe impériale bourgogne. Un nez énorme de whisky tourbé, d’iode, de bois et de réglisse salée. C’est loin d’être agressant mais ça manque de présence maltée. Au goût, les saveurs maltées se développent davantage. Je vois du chocolat et du café. Reste que le fût est puissant en alcool, en bois et en fumée de tourbe. C’est loin d’être mauvais. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps liquoreux qui ne montre que très peu de bulles. En finale, c’est assez sec sur des notes boisées et des notes de terre fumée qui perdurent.

MrHangover (3569) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle @ THLBBT May. Pours another pitch black beer with a very small, brown head on top. Aroma of peat is in there, touches of caramel and wood with a faint hint of coffee in the back. Flavor is basically peated coffee with some sweet caramel added in the finish. Very nice, although a bit unbalanced in the front of the flavor, giving it a bit too much peat to start off with. Still quite nice!

kermis (8062) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours near black with a tiny ring brown head. Aroma is big peaty upfront really overwhelming everything else. Flavour is light heavy sweet and bitter, with smoke, dark chocolate, coffee and caramel coming out in the palate. Very thick and chewy mouthfeel. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

Draught at Taphouse. Pitch black with a thin, tanned head. Roasted aroma with peat, dark malts, fruits, soy sauce, coffee, wood. Taste is bitter-roasted. Full body with an oily texture. Finishes lasting dry and roasted with hard roasted malts, wood and peat. Excellent Stout.

MarcoDL (3200) - NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Black oily pour, small brown-ish head. Aroma of peaty whisky, iodine, oat, coffee and some roasted malt. Amazingly rich taste of boozy red fruit, subtle peat, gritty coffee, bitter cacao and a little vanilla. Thick mouthfeel, warm finish. Fantastic beer.

Beergaard (242) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 17, 2015
Pitch black, nice tanned head. Aroma is peaty, smokey, dark and sweet chocolate, coffee, some dried fruit. Taste is quite sweet but with in-your-face notes of smoke, peat, coffee, burn wood. Such a great beer - especialy if you like islay whisky already.
