OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2009
Enjoyed with breakfast@RBNAG2009, Vatlandsvåg. Dark brown to black in color, with a yellow-brown cream head. Intense aroma of peat, wood, leather and whisky. Full malty, sweet and sour, with a bold bitterness. Predominant wooden whisky flavor. Notes of tar, salty licorice and charcoal. Warming alcohol throughout. Unbalanced and agressive, yet a great experience.

Travlr (15912) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle from Alvinne, gifted to sebletitje, a.k.a. SeaBass, shared with Ibrew2or3, Hopshunter and HonusWagner. Dark brown, beige head, not much lacing. Whisky is apparent in the aroma, and the middle of the taste. Lots of chocolate, burnt espresso, wood. Slightly too long in the barrel, tasty enough, but not an improvement on the original.

fletchfighters (1255) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2012
A-- Poured an oily black, just a few tints of red at the top of the head. Quick fading one finger, light brown head. Mostly a decent looking light brown collar. Dark oily substance left in glass after drinking beer. S-- Alcohol is very tempered in this. Lots of Islay scotch, wood, chocolate, smoked bacon, iodine and salt water. Really good nose. T-- Scorched chocolate, to varying degrees of scorching as well as chocolate. Got dark chocolate mostly. Was actually quite good. Lots of barrel notes. Roasted seaweed, iodine, saltwater, peat, wood, and roasted malts that were lightly scorched. M-- Full, luscious, rich, thick and and just plain good. Well balanced between the barrel and the beer O-- Really no oatmeal to speak of and the base beer was lost in a way as the Islay really dominated. What it left though was just plain good. Barrel took the beer to another level and the base beer is pretty darned good. To taste seaweed, iodine, and salt water was quite cool. Well balanced beer. Just not a good looking appearance. Otherwise an excellent beer

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
