Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2010
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma hints of smoked sausage and wood. It pours pitch black with a nice thick foam. Taste is very sweet, and it tastes of.. well.. sausage, not great at all. This was a nice attempt at making an imperial stout, but it didn’t turn out all that great.

oh6gdx (20919) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2010
Bottled@SBWF2010. Very deep rubyish brown colour with a small beigeish brown head. Aroma is rather smoked peat malty along with some strong liquorice, mild vanilla and some slight tarry notes. Flavour is peated, liquoricy, a bit spices as well as a bit vanillaish notes. Also has some slight annoying strange sweetish notes, otherwise nice.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2010
Bottle @ SBWF ’10. Pours dark dark brown with a small head. The aroma contain foremost smoke, peat and whiskey, Also some vanilla and bacon. More of the same in the rich taste but with more of a roasted malty character to it. Also a very subtle acidity. A bit too much on the peaty side in my book.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2010
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2010. Black color. Earthy peat smoke aroma. Sweet flavor with tar, licorice and peat smoke. Tastes mosty of Islay whisky, should have more taste of beer.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2010
Sample@SBWF2010. Black with begie head. This is an intense brew! The smokey and woody aroma gives this a warming and loveing first impression. There´s also some oak and coffee to it. Flavor has smoke, dark chocolate and wood as well. All the impressions from this brew come to you as a great punch and I like it!

omhper (19963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 5, 2010
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Near black, airy head. Laphroig-smokey tar aroma. Mid sweet with near full body. Intense flavour of licorice and tar, some grain and aniseed behind. More fruit yoaky whisky in the finish. A very intense beer, still without edges and distorted inky flavours.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2010
Sample at SBWF 2010. The islay smoke strikes at you right away, but the smokiness is very smooth and the beer is easy to drink. Fruity backbone but not a lot of coffee or chocolate, so it’s not at all your typical impy stout.

olsvammel (3556) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2010
Appearance: 3/5 It poured a pitch black liquid with some light brown bubbles on the surface. Smell: 8/10 Chocolate, coffee, whisky and smoke. Taste: 8/10 Chocolate, well bitter dark chocolate, coffee, booze, very dark bread and whisky. Mouthfeel: 3/5 Dry, semi-smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation and thick body. Comment: This is a powerful brew with allot of flavour. Fairly well balanced but a bit to boozey for my taste. It’s the kind of beer you lean back and sip at for a while. I think it will appeal to those that likes whisky. I don’t think this one should be enjoyed with food, possible some chocolate. But it can definitely stand on it’s own.
