MrHangover (3490) - 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 (7703) - 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 (3085) - 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 (238) - 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.

SlackerMads (2266) - DENMARK - APR 11, 2015
Bottle. Thick black with a small light brown head. Wood, ink, light peat in the nose. The flavour is dominated by peated smoke, some wood, earth, dark chocolate, salty licorice. Full body, heavy sweet and bitter, soft carbonation. Good, but very dominated by the barrel.

b3shine (6900) - Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2015
Draft to taster. Looks good; a slightly translucent dark cola with thin beige head that steadily dissipates into thin lacing. Smells good too; a nice balance of dark malt, chocolate, oak, and mild peat. Tastes like it smells, but peatier, with a medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable, but peatier than I prefer.

Theydon_Bois (13436) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Keg at BD Camden, 21/03/15. Pitch black with a decent amount of tan swirl that assumes the shape of a pelican! Nose is light peated tones, treacle toffee, charr, dark fruit rinds, vanilla, bitter chocolate. Taste comprises peated malts, dark chocoalte, smoke, wooded rinse, TCP but not too overbearing, spice, tar, herbal notes, liquorice. Full bodied, fine carbonation, lightly warming alcohol in a peated smokey close. Decent enough peated BA offering, not too intense.
