VsXsV (2821) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of coffee, barnyard, horseblanket, bread, chocolate and peat. Obviously brett infected. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, smoke, barnyard and wood. Very, very bretty. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Infected in a not entirely unpleasant way, but still bad.

blomster (266) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2013
Looks like a pop, a bit of peaty aroma, not very good. Dissapointing beer. Don’t really like this

Svesse (6906) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2012
(Bottle) Very dark brown colour, almost black, with hints of ruby. Brief bubbly beige head. Roasted, smoky nose with notes of dark fruit, tar, prunes, raisins, coffee and dark bread. Roasted, malty taste with caramel, dark fruit, raisins, chocolate, dark wort bread, vanilla, hints of tar and a finish with a balanced bitter-sweet touch. Almost full body, smooth and rounded, with a gentle sweetness. Well balanced and tasty. Very nice.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2011
33cl bottle, courtesy of and shared with Gnoff. Brune, qcq bulles à la surface, col fin moka. Arôme de Islay, tourbe malt avec caramel. Bière où le côté cendre du Islay est bien présent et qui ajoute ce profile intéressant à cette bière qui sinon serait assez banale. Le tout reste principalement axé autour du malt; grillé, fumé, cendre et caramel. Pas vraiment la sensation d’avoir affaire à une bière de 10%, seul une note minime de houblon vient ajouter la seule note d’amertume qui reste bien faible.

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2011
Inte så mörk som man kanske hade väntat. Nästan inget skum vilket känns lite misstänkt. Hur som helst en stor doft av rökigt whiskeyfat, riktigt fin. Lätt ja närmast tunn kropp för att vara en IS ändå döljer den de 10,2% väl.Kanske är det sötman som gör det för den är väldigt söt. Ändå mycket lättdrucken, liten beska. Kort eftersmak. Jag tycker att den är okej men inte alls lika bra som Harviestons Ola Dubh.

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torg
Dark brown color with amber reflex; small head. Mild aroma, roasted malt and whisky. Good caramel and chocolate flavor, quite sweet, with traces of roasted malt, roasted nuts, smoke, and a whisky-like alcohol vein. Chocolatey final, liquor filled chocolates, with some roasted malt. Very pleasant.
