banii (236) - Trondheim, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2013
2011 bottle. Oily black. Aroma of smoke, bog and salt. Taste is seawater, smoke, seaweeds, salt and some faint oak and vanilla. Not my cup of tea.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Sample at the "Far Out! Space-themed beer tasting" on 10/01/2013. Pours a glassy black color with a medium foamy tan head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked malt, coffee and oak. Full-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, peat and dark fruit. The finish is peaty with an earthy and oaky vanilla aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Yorker (1091) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2013
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tiny tan head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is peat, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, and coffee. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a bitter, peaty finish.

HopRedHead (341) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor, shared with Bruce Willis. Pours motor oil black, no head. Immediate aroma of peat, leather, licorice and coffee. So far, so good. Taste is very peaty, hit of coffee, a nice touch of hazelnut, licorice and a warm booziness on the way down. Also a nice whisky malt profile very present. Very reminiscent of Laphroaig. Peatiness accumulates as I pour another glass. I love smokey beers, and this one is certainly up there.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2013
Black pour with a thick brown head. Aroma is sweet of dark fruits, chocolate, leather and whisky. Taste brings out alot of the peat from the whisky, but is very sweet aswell. Loving it.

allfreej (552) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 8, 2013
On tap at Holy Grale, Louisville. Black pour with a sticky tan head. Lots of lace on the glass. Full sticky mouthfeel. Nice alcohol warmth in the aftertaste. Roasty malt, raisin, and very peaty scotch whisky in the nose. The taste is dominated by the scotch. Very peaty very smoky. Lots of alcohol comes through in the finish. Delicious. Tasted side by side by side with the white wine and tequila barrel expressions. The strongest tasting of the three, it tasted best as it warmed.

Christopsy (95) - SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Huge imperial stout, major coffee and dark chocolate notes with peaty whisky on the finish.. Smells of Laphroig and dark chocolate. 2 thumbs up!
