Danish: Oak n’ Islay edition er No Name Stout lagret med egetræ, der har trukket en tid i lækker Skotsk Caol Ila whisky fra Islay. Egetræet bidrager med fine vaniljenoter, og den kraftige og røgede whisky bidrager med… ja whisky og noter af tørverøg. Nu har vi bevæget os væk fra morgenmåltidet, og er nærmest ved desserten – nyd den til et stykke rigtig god mørk chokolade, eller en god kop kaffe, og du er et skridt nærmere himmeriget.

TorbenJensen (1510) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
The aroma is very delicate and contains whiskey notes along with some smoked malt, oak and a little burnt character. The taste is initially a good, rich coffee flavor that slowly changes into a little dark bitter chocolate reminiscent of the good Belgian Valrhona. Smoky malt with dry end is mixed with a little hop bitterness, and it hangs very long in the mouth. The brewery mentions something about vanilla, but in my mouth, I can not perceive vanilla. Oak ’n Islay may not be enjoyed cold, and it must also be poured into a glass with ample surface. It is really delicious and can be enjoyed for dessert or as enjoyment a late evening hour.

rickgordon (3870) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2011
Draught at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg. Almost black colour with a low brown head. Vanilla, coconut and peat in aroma. Really weak body due to the barrel ageing with loads of peaty smokiness. It’s Islay Whisky alright and too much for my liking. The maltiness is long gone.

Draught at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg, on December 16, 2011
Black color, smallish brown head. Sweet and some vanilla scent. Sweet, some roasted tate. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.
I kept thinking this was the imperial edition and how different it was from my past experience, not until the end did I figure out it was the "weaker" one so a whole other beer, not strange then that it differs...
It was nice and very drinkable.

Draught at 3 Små Rum, on December 22, 2011
Got it closer to room temperature this time around.
Black color, brown head. Smoke, sweet, malty, chocolate, roasted scent and taste. Smooth moutfheel, medium bitterness.
You get used to it fairly fast, then just enjoy it and away it goes rather fast, preparing you for the next, and more is nice.
