4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drunk to celebrate my rating number 21,100. Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of iodine, hard roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, smoke, and wood. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of iodine, alcohol, roasted malt, and soy sauce, as well as medium notes of coffee, peated smoke, and wood, leading to a very dry, alcoholic, roasted, and whiskey like finish. The alcohol warms the mouth.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Shared 0.5l bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a thin bubbly brown head. Aroma is filling the room right after you pop the cap with strong smoked peat, leather, light salt and some alcohol. I also got a new aroma sense that I never have seen in a beer before: it smells like a well used plush sofa smells. Fantastic! Full-bodied, low carbonation and the mouthfeeling is thick and fat as yo mamma. Flavors are much the same fantastic stuff I got in the aroma: Lots of leather, strong roasted malts, a mild alcohol sting, peat and silver birch burned nearly to ashes leaving a burning aftertaste from all that smoke. By far the most distinct and unique in the series. The aftertaste stays around for ever! Really nice brew this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured a clear dark brown with a lingering ring of brown foam. Aromas of peat smoke, iodine, bitter chocolate and roastiness. Palae was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of peat smoke, iodine, cocoa and light earthiness with a smooth dry lingering smokey iodine finish. Are you supposed to drink this or pour it on a cut?

awesome beer if you like peaty scotch. You start with a great base beer and add a further level of complexity. Granted that the peaty/smokiness does take over a lot of the coffee flavour of the base beer but the mouthfeel/palate remains the same, Very nice

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared with esp0r at Tre Små Rum. Deep black color, small nut colored head. Roasty aroma with a good amount of smokey islay whisky, coffee. Both aroma and taste are very complex. As in the aroma, the taste has a good amount of smoked whisky, licorice and coffee. Body is quite good, not unlike other BGBrunches

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Tre små rum shared with Daje. Pitch black, thin espresso head. Smells of smoke, tar, islay whisky and coffee. Taste is islay whisky POW. Tar, harbour, peat. Very masculine tastes i guess. Some sweetness but not much. Extremely oily feel. Almost like tar. Finish has some bitterness. I maybe think Mikkel has overpowed this a bit with the islay feel. Where is the expensive coffee flavour i ask myself. It’s a fantastic beer, but the dominant tastes is of islay whisky, not coffee.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle shared with my man Beer2000, thanks mate! :-) Pours an onyx black, oily body with a small, grey/white-ish head, surprisingly enough. Still looking very good. The aroma, however, blows my socks off! Sooo smokey and tar-like, with lots of coffee and hints of ashes, wood, peat, whiskey and dark chocolate. Really, really awesome. Taste comes almost as close, with strong Kopi Lowak tones flanked by tar, leather, ashes, whiskey, peat and lots of smokey notes. Absolutely great blend! Body is semi-oily, full and nice. This is truly the best whiskey-oriented beer I’ve ever had, and a must if you like coffee, stouts and whiskey. This one pretty much has it all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.)
