It has the flavor of peat, but doesnt have the biting characteristic it sometimes can have. Mild, flavorful, sweet on the lips. Beautiful. Tap at Borefts 2016

Bottle @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Pitch black color, medium sized light brown head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is not my thing, too much vanilla and milk chocolate. Taste is a lot better imo, even though theres an incredible amount of chocolate, some alcohol, wood, nuts, but I dont get the bourbon I usually taste in a bourbon BA beer. Maybe its overdone or Im just stupid, but this is just not my thing I guess.

Torfig malziger, vergleichsweise wenig ser Antrunk. Alkoholische Noten bleiben nicht aus, sind aber angenehm eingebunden. Vollmundig, langer torfiger Nachhall. 10/12/12/12//12
Earlier Rating: 1/17/2016 Total Score: 4.3
Weicher, stark malziger Antrunk. Deutliche Noten von Bourbon, volumins, der Alkohol ist geradezu perfekt versteckt. Geringfgig bitter, Bitterschokolade, Vanille. Die Aromen steigern sich nicht, da sie bereits von Beginn an intensiv und absolut harmonisch sind. Vollmundig malziger und langer Nachgeschmack. 9/14/14/13/11/13

SinH4 (3695) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2016
Tap. Black color with tan head. Aroma is smoked wood, ham, ash. Taste is sweet oak wood, vanilla, some caramel. Slightly smoky finish. Very good, but not as incredible as the regular Hel & Aarde I think.
Earlier Rating: 12/17/2014 Total Score: 3.7
Black appearance with small head. Vanilla and peat in the aroma, also a bit of cow staples. Taste is sweet, very sweet, with a bit of wood and peat. I think I like the regular Hemel & Aarde more. Thick and liquorice feeling. This is too sweet. Still a fine one.

Earlier Rating: 3/15/2015 Total Score: 4.3
Bottle at oak aged festival. Very dark brown with barely any head. Sweet chocolate, chocolate icecream with red berry sauce and bourbon on the side... Very sweet but with a light fruity tartness. Medium to full bodied with medium alcohol presence. Beautiful.
