Dark brown colour. Aroma has lots of very intense peat and smoke. Taste is earthy, bitter, salty, smokey, oaky. Intensity of the peat and smoke too high. Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2013

Sample at SBWF 2013.
Almost black with a tan head. A lot of whisky both in the aroma and taste. Also tar, oak, dried fruit and light smoke. Almost full body and with a long aftertaste. Tasty!

660ml bottle at home. Deep brown with a medium off-white head. A complex body with medium carbonation. Smoke, wood, charcoal, Islay, herbs. Although I prefer the Blended version, this is great full flavoured whisky beer. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle. Black with offwhite head. Medicinal Islay aroma, iodine galore. Iodine takes the lead in the mouth, moderate smokiness, some fruit. Very interesting. MrW (740) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle shared with L.
Aroma has chocolat, alcohol and loads of peat, smoke, dirt.
Chocolat brown colour, tan head, hazy, some sediments.
Tasted had sweet caramel and some roasted but got overruled when the peat kicks in.
Full taste, nice experiment that has a lot of different tastes in one beer, but for me they are too much exceeded by the peat. maruno (52) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2013
Pours black with a small cloud with a very recognizable Ardbeg smell with a lot of peat but also smelling like a dark beer. Very rich aroma of salty peat, like Ardbeg’s whisky. Very interesting texture with a tingly carbonation and something recognizable from Ardbeg. Nice bittersweet taste.
Only disadvantage is that it’s hard to say if this is still a true beer, as the Ardbeg is so recognizable in this.
