caesar (6604) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2014
Bottled, NP-177, BB Aug 13 2015, large sample. Dark brown color, short creamy brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, hint of peat (ingredients say peated malt), dark chocolate, dark bread. Quite bitter taste, dark bread again, bit fruity bitterness as well, slight dry. Interesting brew. I guess I had the peated version, though it was not explicitly mentioned.

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - APR 2, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with rosť creamy head and smooth body. Aroma of roast and woods. Taste of smoke, leaves, woods, torf, malt and roasted barley. Light smokey touch. Due to the smokeyness not my kind of brew but apart from that not too bad.

MichaelAwesome (6427) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - APR 3, 2014
Sueffig und schwer. Vorne mit Kaffe und einer milden Saeure, zum Ende hin jedoch geraeuchert. Und das killt natuerlich viele Szmpathien. Alles in allem jedoch solide. Kaffee, Roestaromen und gar Sueffigkeit.

Hermod (6329) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 9, 2015
33cl bottle. Poured black colored, thin brown head. Woody, roasted malty aroma, some licorice, strong coffee notes. Pleasant aroma overall. Some red wine notes actually. Flavor has roasted malt, cocoa, dark chocolate, hops. Long, but quite dry finish, some vinous notes, roast. Easy to drink despite the high ABV. Very tasty.

BlackHaddock (6211) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
33cl Bottle: BBD 31st Oct 15, poured into a Leffe chalice at home on 26th Apr 14. My 5th beer in a random tasting evening with myself! A deep and dark tanned bubbly head sat on top of a truly ruby red body, the head falling away as I wrote these words, how sad! The aroma was of ground coffee combined with old cocoa beans and vanilla pods, as was the taste: some hints of bitterness and sourness in there somewhere too. Chocolate can sometimes be bitter, and this is maybe what I picked up? Rich and alcoholic in the body, almost smooth: I really enjoyed it.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2012
In short: The most peaty beer Iíve ever had. That simple. A fun beer.
How: Tap at ít Arendsnest, Amsterdam
The look: Black body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose is very peaty, some earthy forest floor, a bit smoky. Taste is peat, more peat and then some more peat. Also plenty of burnt malts providing a harsh roastiness, some cacao powder and a cigarette butt sensation. This is probably the most peaty beer I have ever had. I enjoyed it because it was so over the top in a different way, but in all honesty it wouldnít be something I would enjoy so much if beers like that were to become commonplace. This was like drinking slightly smoked earthy peat. Quite enjoyable because it pushes the Ďpeatí character to the maximum. This beer is to peaty beer what a Shlenkerla is to smoked beers. I liked it and for what itís worth my wife absolutely loved it. My last beer of the night in Amsterdam, then it was time for the walk back to the hotel. And even if they donít make drunk-staggering an Olympic sport soon I will not regret the rigorous training Iíve put myself through.
