Complete black color with a solid beige head. Ok lacing. Smooth mellow chocolate, oak and fruity aroma. Full body. A bit sweet and an ok bitterness. Soft carbonation. Powerful flavor. Really berry fruity after a while. Lots of chocolate, oak and mild licorice. Very well hidden alcohol.

sebletitje (7134) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Bouteille 33cl. Brune foncée légèrement toruble, col épais crémeux moka laissant un léger doré au verre. Arôme est agréablement bien BA surtout avec le côté tourbe qui ressort sans pour cela être trop dérangeant. Le tout garde un côté presque de rhum, rétro chocolaté généreux avec un léger caramel. Palais est tourbé avec un bon profil chocolaté le tout restant assez doux et tirant sur un caractère presque café au lait et toffee. Le tout est légèrement poudreux cacao, chocolat, café ponctué par ce fini résiduel doux. Amertume reste discrète et perce péniblement.

alomtnez (102) - SPAIN - FEB 14, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 Pretty smoked and burnt raisin aroma with liquor notes. Brownish medium head not very persistent. In mouth it adds ashes and burnt chocolate, caramel and raisin, providing dry and salty notes together with some acidity presence. Not very enjoyable complexity because of excessive presence of burnt flavours to my preferences.

Pewnego chłodnego wieczoru, skusiłem się na tego ciemnego mocarza. I nie mówię tu tylko o 12-procentowej zawartości alkoholu! Moose Islay ze swoją ciemną barwą, gęstą konsystencją i brązową pianą budzi respekt! Aromat bardzo złożony, trudno uchwycić wszystko, co tam się dzieje - paloność, czekolada, dym, kawa... W smaku nie wyczuwa się tak dużej mocy - jest przyjemne, nienachalne uczucie rozgrzewania w przełyku. Oleiste, wyczuwalna szlachetność alkoholu, porównać można do whisky. Do tego mocne nuty czekoladowe. Wysycenie niskie. Bardzo ciekawe piwo, do powolnej degustacji!

Kita (1311) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Murky almost black color with thin creamy light brown head and many body particles floating. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, oatmeal, coffee and liquorice. Taste starts with rich roasted malt and sweet chocolate, follows by liquorice and woody note with warming alcoholic mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Couldn’t have aged it for 5 years, I think 5 weeks is a success story...
