10/VIII/13 - 50cl bottle @ RBBSG II, my place - bottled: 9/III/9 - BB: 9/III/12 - batch: 415 (2013-740) Thanks to BelgBeerGeek for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, small layer of beige bubbles, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit peated, chloride, caramel, sugary, whisky. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very peated, chocolate, mocha, cocoa powder, bitter touch, alcohol, some whisky. Aftertaste: peated, caramel, whisky, mocha, bitter and hoppy ending, which is pretty surprising after 4 years

Thanks to BelgBeerGeek! 50 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG II. Pours a super dark brown color with a brown head. The smell is peat, roasted malt and chocolate. The taste is big peat, scotch, roasted malt, dark fruit ending dry. Full bodied, nicely carbonated and smooth.

Ktwse (2600) - SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2014
Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of peats, smoke, whisky barrel - like sniffing a Lagavulin. There's light coffee and chocolate there as well but the nose is completely dominated by islay whisky. Taste is initial sweet with muscovado and chocolate before the peats kick in again to dominate throught the finish. Almost overbearing. Very alcohol warming. Rich, creamy body with soft carbonation.

Vells (921) - Riga, LATVIA - MAR 4, 2015
Been there and done that with Islay whiskeys, so peaty character in this one wasnt nothing extraordinary, thou very pleasant and interesting. Roasted malts, peat, some smoked qualities, some coffee, lovely choco, licorice. Light carbonation highlights sweetness, thou theres moderate roasted bitterness as well. Lovely and interesting brew, but one timer

Une belle petite bouteille. Une bière pour homme et amateur de whiskey écossais. Cet Imperial Stout goûte la tourbe écossaise et l’iode. C’est particulier mais aussi singulier. Cette bière m’a donné le goût de boire du scotch !!!

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2009
(Bottled) Almost black with a small, tanned head. Strongly peaty, even stingy, woody and slightly smoky aroma with very little of the original beer present. Flavor is also more like whiskey than beer, with very strong peaty-tannic bitterness. Medium to full body with low carbonation. The peatiness is too intrusive for my taste in this one. Better than whiskey, but clearly less enjoyable (for me) than the original Beer Geek Brunch Weasel - or even the Highland edition.

deflagro (106) - Lund, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours a black liquid with a brown, thick head. Aroma is incredibly intense and very dominated by the Islay whisky barrels. Notes of wood, tar, peat, smoke and some liquorice. Taste is also dominated by the barrels, with lots of burnt peat, tar and wood. Some alcohol, coffee and roasted malt in the aftertaste. Actually a very unbalanced beer. Interesting and rather good.

Taste at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Gathering
Dark brown pour, thin wispy white head. Nose of rubber cement, plum, smoke, and faint peat. Flavor is heavy iodine and light chocolate, some warmth coming in the peaty finish. Body is quite thin, and with warmth, the booze comes on strong. I love Islay stuff, but this was too much barrel and not enough base.
