On tap at Mikkeller and Friends in Reykjavik. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Almost a scotch whiskey bouquet. Dry almost astringent. I think this is scored whiskey battles. The peat comes through. Average body and mouthfeel.

Maksymiliant (80) - POLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Czekolada, kawa, lukrecja, lekka wanilia. To w aromacie a w smaku wlasciwie to samo plus, dobra goryczka w kontrze.

Barrel-aged version - On tap @ Chmielarnia. Pours black, beige head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee combined with notes of vanilla, dark fruit. In taste it’s heavily roasty, some sweetness as well. Remarkably smooth; fruity and floral. Very good.

mzaar (2008) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2015
På fat @ Irreale, Madrid. En närmast helt svart öl med ett givmilt moccafärgat skum. Luktar högst besynnerligt, och inte speciellt inbjudande, av kaffe, stall, lakrits, whiskey, röda bär, brunt socker och... är det bränt gummi? Bättre i smaken där lakrits, läder, kaffe, mörka bär och lätt av stall samsas rätt bra tillsammans. Det är en rejäl och fyllig kropp, och den oljiga munkänslan är utomordentlig. Nästan så att det uppväger det mindre bra. Nästan.

olsvammel (4008) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2015
On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Very boozy smel with coffee, whisky and dark chocolate. Very roasted taste with burned bread, lots of dark malts, chocolate and coffee. There is so much roasted that it goes towards ink. This has both too much booze (BW gone wrong) and too much roasted.

heman (155) - Tychy, POLAND - DEC 28, 2014
Barwa jest nieprzejrzyście czarna, piwa ma fantastyczną jakby plastyczna pianę. Drobno pęcherzykowa, beżową, utrzymująca się do końca picia. Aromat intensywnie kawowy, wyraźnie czuć także gorzką czekoladę. W tle słody palone i delikatny karmel. Piwo jest niesamowicie gęste i pełne, nie wiadomo czy pić czy gryźć. Zdominowane palonymi słodami, chyba najbardziej popiołowe piwo jakie piłem. W tle pojawia się gorzka czekolada i kawa. Finisz to wyraźna, mocna goryczka i lekkie muśnięcie alkoholu.

_angst_ (3442) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2014
Draught @ BBB. Pours viscous black with a rather big creamy mocha head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of spotty trace on the glass. Smell is sweet, malty and tiny fruity with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, burnt wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, raisins,l soy sauce, charcoal and hints of peat. Taste is sweet, heavy bitter, salty and malty with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, sweet soy sauce, dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, vanilla fudge, burnt wood, charcoal, pipe tobacco, peat, ash and alcohol. Mouthfeel is fat, round, sticky sweet, heavy roasted/burnt astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and heavy bitter with roasted malts, caramel, burnt wood, vanilla beans, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, soy sauce, moist soil, charcoal, peat, ash and alcohol. Unbalanced and too heavy on the charcoal... Too sweet and too bitter.
