vjohans (449) - SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle from khioskh Smoke, coffee, sweet smoke, chocolate. Not that intense aroma Black, tanned head. Heavy swee, light bitter. The smoke is really heavy in taste and body. Gives it an unbalanced finish.

Dr_Fellini (827) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a thick deep brown color with a light brown head. Aroma is slightly smoky, roasted malts. Flavor is WAY too smoky for my liking. I’m certainly biased though, because I just can’t do scotch. Not my thing.

11.2oz bottle into tulip. Minneapolis. Pours very dark brown. Small tan head. Aroma is very nice. Peat whiskey dominates (just the right amount). Coffee. Taste is dominantly sweet. A little bitterness. Body is full and rich. Smooth texture. Low carbocation. Long finish.

@ Basunen 15-6-27: ganska tydlig whiskydoft. Smaken är ganska stor och fyllig av stark kaffe, lakrits och whisky. Fin och len eftersmak. Riktigt gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

gdierksen (12) - Brookline, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Poured from bottle into tulip glass. -Aroma: roasted coffee and vanilla with faint notes of peat -Appearance: thick and viscous pour, black in color with a thick brown head -Taste: surprisingly smooth for the ABV, dark roast coffee and molasses with a distinctly peaty after taste and mild lingering bitterness -Palate: creamy and oily on the tongue, thick and strong -Overall: very good stout, great taste from the start to the finish. One of the best "brunch stouts" I’ve tasted.

markextrae (2120) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2015
33cl bottle at home, new batch. poured a dark black colour with a tanned head. nose of dark bitter chocolate, smoke, salty peat, ash, dark espresso beans, licorice, oak, burned caramel, incredible thick mouthfeel. chocolate fudge, whisky, oak, tobacco. some sweet vanilla notice in the end, overall the peated whisky if a bit overwelming, and not as balanced as the other brunch weasel versions, but still a joy to drink do

Bottle. Pitch black with big dark brown head, beautiful looking beer. If you love Laphroaig or Ardbeg, you love this aroma, peat and Islay smoke like there’s dram of whisky in your hand. Taste is also smoky with some wood, chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Very big, smooth and oily mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Long, soft, smoky finish with cocoa and coffee. Three words: peat, smoke and Islay.
