Bottle. Jet black with almost no head. Heavily peated but, after first feeling, also some roasted, wood and chocolate notes. Most probably too aggressive for many people. Taste is completely different. Sweet start, medium to full body, almost completely flat with very smooth, oily mouthfeel. Dark chocolate flavors in taste balanced with a bit sour, roasted finish. Alcohol very well hidden, just a slight warming in the finish. Very good, as expected. I'm a big fan of peated beers and love it!

2/XII/17 - on tap @ Billies Craft Beer Festival - BB: n/a (2017-2002) Thanks to the Belgian, Dutch and German ratebeerians for sharing today's beers!

Clear dark brown to black beer, no head, small line of bubbles next to the rim of the glass. Aroma: holy peat heads, that's a lot of peated whisky! Actually, it's nothing but peat and ashtray. Well, maybe some dried fruits if I really search for it. MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: all peat, lots of alcohol, nice roast, pretty bitter, more peat, some coffee. Aftertaste: peat, peat, peat, roasted malts, coffee, more peat, sweetish, alcohol, bit of chocolate. Too peated, I'd say.

Mega torf w aromacie, dalej czekolada, paloność, beczka. Smak jest mocno czekoladowy, słodki, pełny świetnych torfowych i wędzonych nut, jest beczka, sporo drewna. Bardzo cięzki klimat, ciało gęste, goryczka umiarkowana, alkohol dobrze schowany. Rewelka.

Sampled at Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017 - day 1. Pitch black pour with a thin tan head. Tons of smoke, peat, dark chocolate, varnish. Super intense, bordering on harsh, peat.

@Billies Craftbeerfest 2017. Donker zwarte met bijna geen schuimkraag. Geur is gerookt, bbq, spek en houtskool. Smaak is houtskool, rook, as, en een tikkeltje bbq spek.

Draft at Billie's Craft Beer Fest '17. Black with a ring tan head. Aroma of whiskey, oak barrel, dark chocolate, caramel. Flavour is heavy sweet and above moderate bitter. Full bodied with a thick texture and soft carbonation.

Kran na premierze w pubie Artezana. Torf zdecydowanie na pierwszym planie, są spalone kable, lekko wpadające w bandaże i tytoń, dalej wanilia. Mega złożony aromat, chyba najlepszy z tegorocznych "Samców", w smaku naprzemiennie walczą ostre, wytrawne torfowe posmaki ze słodką czekoladą piwa bazowego. W smaku z wersją Laphroaig wygrywa jednak nieco Bourbon. Still klasa światowa.

At Billies Craftbeerfest 2017. Thnx for sharing, everyone ! The lighting was really bad, so don't mind if my color descriptions are off. Pours black, no head. Smell is pure peat. Taste is thick, dense, pure peat. Oak. Mild smoke Still decent, as for the body, but the peat in this is simply to much.

@ BCBF Holy Smoke! Too much smoke! No refinement there. Taste is less smoky. Very herbal and a muddle. Thick oily palate.

(Thank you!) Sampled draft @ Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017. Pure black syrup with no head. Nose is peated down to being medicinal, nothing left of the base beer. Taste is extremely peated medicinal molasses syrup, liquorice, paint,… Very thick. Really extreme peat totally ruined this beer for me & I adored the standard BA one.Yikes, really not for me.
