From Voldby, DK. Bottled, 060310. Black with beige head. Aroma of complex roasted malts. Flavor with coffee, chokolate, malt and both with a balanced touch of peated smoke. Hints of salt. Expensive but a unique experience.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2010
Bottle. Rating #500! Pitch black pour with a frothy tan head that quickly diminishes to surface cover. Complex aroma is constantly changing so that different elements become dominant and are then obscured by others; has notes of coffee, dark chocolate, malty caramel, iodine, peat smoke, wood and dark fruit. Flavour has with coffee, chocolate and roasted malt up front with the peat, alcohol and wood notes quickly coming after. Oily, slick mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a long smoky, bitter finish that contains a bit of alcohol warmth. A very good stout, the Islay whisky characters are well integrated although they are on the strong side. Very well made nonetheless.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - APR 13, 2010
Bottle shared with plovmand. It pours pitch black with a dense brown head. The aroma is loaded with peat, tar and whiskey but also roasted malt and a hint of alcohol. The flavour is massive, with lots of heavy roasted malt, smoked whiskey, peat, coffee and caramel. It has a nice balance but I’m not a whiskey lower..

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle at Peter’s 2nd annual spring gathering thanks to Brian from 12%. Pours jet black with a thin tan head. Huge peat and smoke. Smells a little like a permanent marker. Loads of smoky peat throughout this, somewhat obscuring some of what makes the weasel usually such a solid beer. Rather awesome, but a bit challenging.

Vaiz (4107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2010
Bottle at home. Had a bottle lying around for a while and today seemed a good day to open this beast. Thick syrupy brown pour with a dense creamy tan head. Heavy aroma full of peat, coffee, iodine, roasty and burnt malts and some bitter hops. Full bodied and huge flavor, very bitter and peated. Somewhat medicinal and a bit burnt. Slightly harsh and one-dimensional. Still, a great brew.

2013-11-11, bottle, batch 415, brewed 090309, bb 090312, 4½ years old, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Pitch black color with medium sized head, reducing quickly. The aroma presents strong iodine character, followed in strength by the peat, and eventually by the roasted malt. Smooth mouthfeel, lean, thinning after a few years of age; dark chocolate and roasted malt flavor, with light residual sweetness; the liquorice touch is too strong; some peat and iodine; correct bitterness level; pleasant alcohol warmth, but well controlled.
Very good, but it won’t improve further.

2010-04-10, tasting at Papsø’s, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Black color; it pours quite oily. Very nice aroma, whiskey, peaty, with chocolate and light coffee. The mouthfeel is quite oily, the flavor is strong chocolate first of all, with pleasant peaty/whiskey touch, some roasted malt, and light liquorice (I would be happy even without it). Very good, a bit chaotic but with many sides to be enjoyed.
