33 cl bottle @ wPBF’13.sebletitje (10067) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2013
Pours pitch black color with a small head. Aroma of peat, tar, some roasted malts and chocolate. Flavor of chocolate, dark fruits, peat and some vanilla. The peat is quite overwhelming.
bouteille 33cl, bottled 05-09-2012.
Noire, col fin café au lait laissant un filament doré au verre.
Arôme de barrique, boisé avec tourbe qui domine ici aussi tout le bouquet pour un tourbé typique.
Palais est ici aussi tourbé à souhait suivi d’un léger boisé, malt caramel, pointe de chocolat sur une pointe épicée.
Garde aussi ce profil houblonné léger qui contribue à un ajout moyen d’amertume fleuri et citronné mais qui fait de suite place au tourbé. Palais reste épais, voire sirop avec une note de café sur la fin.
Encore une fois, trop tourbé pour moi et qui gâche l’ajout des autres ingrédients. jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle from a generous trader. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of smoke, whiskey, roasted chocolate malt, vanilla, oak and sweet milk chocolate. Finishes with light smoke and peated whiskey. Medium body. caesar (7099) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2013
Bottle. Black color, short fluorescent brown head. Hmm, when I start smelling, I smell the peat. Why am I punishing myself? Because I’m ready for a peaty medicinal whisky BA impy perhaps? Oh right, lets go then! Hit me, hit me hard! Huge thick peaty aroma, smoked, almost impossible to breath through. It is almost choking. I am choking. Do I dare to take a sip? Eyes closed, nose closed, small sip. Thick black oil down my throat. It’s really thick. And dry. And it’s peated and smoked. Ashes. When the smoke and peat fades away, my tongue gets dry. So the alcohol can burn. Medium alcohol burn, fits the style.
Ok, I was ready, still it hit me. For a huge mofo peated whisky RIS, it does ok though. I rather be hit with that, than with a weak Belgian style blond. It’s good though there’s a H&V backing up all the peat from the bunnahabahabawhatever, otherwise it would be pure spirit on oak.
As some of you know, this is not my favorite style and probably will never be. But sometimes we ratebeerians like the pain. I’m actually enjoying it. Bullit (4581) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 10, 2013
Bottle @ Rooie Dop brewdungeon. Black colour, tan head. Nose is peaty, roasted malts, and chocolate. Flavour is roasted malts and chocolate, peaty, whisky, slightly alcoholic. The peat is too much present for me.
PeatyPete (1050) - NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2013
Beer with an almost black color. The label of this bottle says 11% alc. Peaty, malty and light sweet taste. The core expressions of Bunnahabhain is unpeated whisky. Once a year they produce a peaty batch. It seems to be a good companion for this beer. Theydon_Bois (19199) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle at home, big thanks to Dennis, 330ml bottled 05/09/12 - 11% ABV, blackwax seal, 29/03/13.
Light black with a thin tan head that quickly thins to nyadda.
Nose is peated whisky, TCP, roast malts in the background. The whisky has taken over a little too much here.
Taste comprises dark roast malts, peated whisky, medicinal notes, hint of liqourice, woody tones, dark chocolate, dark berry fruits, tobacco, leather, touch of booze.
Full bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate.
A little jeckyl and hide this one - not a great lookers, smell is overpowering on the peated whisky front however it redeems itself with a solid flavour and mouthfeel. Not their best offering though! Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with a minimal brownish head. Ashes, smoke and leather aroma and flavour. I really disliked this beer..sorry... jfb (6231) - GERMANY - MAR 13, 2013
(bottle) pours a pitch black colour with a creamy brown head. aroma of heavy ash and medicinal phenols, cherries, tobacco, mouldy wood, grilled beef, soy sauce, dark chocolate and a light hint of apricots. flavour is mostly ash and heavily toasted malts, with a light cherry sweetness, some herbal hops, more oak and some sugar icing in the slightly roasted-bitter finish. extremely thick body with soft carbonation. JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - MAR 12, 2013
Pours darker than black.
Nose: juniper tar oil, Zan, peat.
Very dark forces invade your soul at the first sip, then salinity and mouthfeel, smoky backnose, peaty flavours on a huge malty backbone.
Beer for smoking bears.
