yourilevesque (225) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
De couleur Noire foncée aux reflets sombres, ténébreux et charbonniers, cette Weasel est surmontée d’une mousse d’un brun brûlé étonnamment copieuse et persistante. Le nez est saturé de café brûlé, de bois brûlé, de whisky. C’est d’une puissance extrême et difficile à apprécier tant la gifle est percutante. Sans vouloir offenser personne amateur de ce type d’arômes, l’attaque au nez est comparable à un crayon feutre neuf. En bouche, le liquide est d’une onctuosité agréable. L’alcool et la tourbe fumée sont bien entendu au premier plan mais si on y regarde de plus près, on y ressent du tabac, de l’anis (en quantité appréciable), du gâteau aux fruits confits de Noël et une importante amertume provenant probablement d’un ajout massif de houblons nécessaires à équilibrer l’ensemble. Une fois le palais habitué à cette attaque foudroyante, la bière gagne beaucoup en buvabilité, malgré sa texture riche, grasse et presque pâteuse. Cette bière est un charnier.

DSG (8175) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 23, 2015
[4/27/15] Draught at Taphouse in Copenhagen. Black with a bit of brown foam. Big peaty aroma with some coffee and chocolate. Sweet flavor with lots of chocolate and peat, some coffee and a burnt finish. Full-bodied. Very good.

ChrisRR (12) - DENMARK - MAY 20, 2015
From tap at Taphouse. Very brown almost black color and dark head. Has fantastic aroma of whiskey but has very little alcohol taste. Tons of smoke and malt. Not a beer you van drink tons of because of the intense flavors, but very good at 5-10 cl at a time. Great for after a nice meal if you don’t want full on whiskey.

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 !!!

Lukasmh (458) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2015

Taste is very nice and peaty. Acidic wood, chocolate, dark malts, peat, smoke, rich, vanilla. Finish has tons of peat, dry wood. Well hidden ABV. Full creamy body. Long smoky finish with some heat.

Alexanderdahl (72) - DENMARK - MAY 17, 2015
Pitch black as usual. Smoky nose, but not really any coffee left. Nice peaty smoke on the tounge, dry and ashtray harsh with a nice whisky vanilla finish. But still feels like the barrel takes over, no coffee left.. Still really a nice beer though.

SlovakSniper (3706) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
Un anneau de mousse flotte sur une robe impériale bourgogne. Un nez énorme de whisky tourbé, d’iode, de bois et de réglisse salée. C’est loin d’être agressant mais ça manque de présence maltée. Au goût, les saveurs maltées se développent davantage. Je vois du chocolat et du café. Reste que le fût est puissant en alcool, en bois et en fumée de tourbe. C’est loin d’être mauvais. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps liquoreux qui ne montre que très peu de bulles. En finale, c’est assez sec sur des notes boisées et des notes de terre fumée qui perdurent.

MrHangover (3107) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle @ THLBBT May. Pours another pitch black beer with a very small, brown head on top. Aroma of peat is in there, touches of caramel and wood with a faint hint of coffee in the back. Flavor is basically peated coffee with some sweet caramel added in the finish. Very nice, although a bit unbalanced in the front of the flavor, giving it a bit too much peat to start off with. Still quite nice!

kermis (6568) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours near black with a tiny ring brown head. Aroma is big peaty upfront really overwhelming everything else. Flavour is light heavy sweet and bitter, with smoke, dark chocolate, coffee and caramel coming out in the palate. Very thick and chewy mouthfeel. Full bodied with soft carbonation.
