UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 First rating
33 cl bottle. Bottled July 9th 2011. Thanks Magnus & Rebecka (not on ratebeer). Sampled on December 24, 2013.
Marked 11% ABV on the label if I read and wrote it down correctly.
Black color, small light brown head. Huge peat, whisky scent, also alcohol. Peaty, smoked, whisky, alcohol taste. Whisky, peat aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
Loads of peat, loads of whisky, not much balance, base beer doesnt speak up much at all, if at all. A score of 3.0 seems high for me, since Id say the beer is not very drinkable, though for sipping it worked in a weird sort of way.
At first gave it 6/3/6/3/12=3.0
With the very poor drinkability though, Ive opted to change my score to 6/3/6/3/6=2.4.
Perhaps if you sample this from a whisky glass in small amounts and think less of it as a beer, your mind would wrap more around what the character of the drink is.
Id not finish a bottle of this, I struggled to finish me third of a bottle even, potent and in your face for sure.
6/3/6/3/6=2.4

33 cl bottle thanks to Ingo! On May 24, 2014. Bottled Sep 2012, marked 11% ABV.
Black color with hints of red and brown, small browb head. Smoked, char coal, alcohol scent. Smoked, dry, peat, alcohol taste. Smoked, whisky, peat aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium high dry bitterness.
The various chacters by themselves are rather nice, but the drinkability is seriously lacking. Could stand a bit more of it this time, we ever drank half a bottle each, but this would be better sold in nip bottles of 18 cl or so, and still to be shared as of my taste. Overpowering and the barrels have very much taken over the beer character.
7/3/7/3/9=2.9

Habanero (4257) - Tranbjerg, Denmark, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
Bottled. Pours black with a large, lacing tan head. Aroma of peat, roasted malt, chocolate and whiskey. Sweet flavor that ends up with alcohol and bitter notes. Medium to full bodied, creamy to oily text and flat carb. Excellent indeed.

jensgam (159) - , DENMARK - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with small beige head. Aroma is whisky, vanilla and roasted malt. Flavour is smoke, chocolate, vanilla with some burning alcohol. A little too dominant whisky flavour.

Tide (3108) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle from a friend. Black color, almost non-existing brown head. Bitter taste with nuts, scotch, vanilla, oak, coffee and a bit chocolate. Bitter finish with coffee, scotch and oak. Good imperial stout, although too dominated by scotch aroma.

MrHangover (4134) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pitch black with a small, forced brown head on top. Aroma is very peaty, smokey and there is little left to be found from the base beer. Very nice, full aroma. Flavour is quite sweet with big characters of Scotch whisky, peaty, syrup, molasses and booze. Cloying and sticky mouthfeel. Great sipper, very nice to enjoy during a harsh, rainy cold night. Great beer.

adnielsen (10538) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle @ Armins palace. Pours a deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Heavy smoked peaty, light chlorine/chemical, dark chocolate, herbal aroma. A bit thin body. Huge scotch peaty flavor with plenty of swamp ass. Ok.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle at FoCo Stout Tasting 2013, courtesy of Armin. Thanks man! Pour is deep black with a small brown head that quickly dissipated. Huge smoke, woody, peaty, bacon grease, light cocoa, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is huge smoke, dirty earth, peat, charcoal, ashy, burnt toast and dough with a long, lingering smoky finish. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Like a heavy peated scotch.

Pour thanks to armin, thanks man. This beer is nuts. Super peaty, smoky aroma, and it tastes like licking a frog dipped in scotch.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, big ash, wood, hints of earth, lots of woody smoky notes, touch of coffee. Taste is a mix of dark cocoa, licking ashes, wood and smoke, hints of peat, lots of earth, finishing bitter, dry.
