0.33 l bottle from 'De Molen', bottled in September 2016. Pitch black with a thin, frothy, stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, roasty, rather smoky aroma of peat, iodine, dark chocolate, licorice and some coffee. Quite sweet, malty, roasty, fairly smoky taste of dark chocolate, licorice, lots of peat and iodine, light coffee and some vanilla/bourbon, followed by a long, rather roasty-bitter, smoky, earthy-dry and a little boozy finish. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Delicious, complex and intense RIS, great beer to finish 2017 with! Iznogud (4691) - CROATIA - OCT 29, 2017

330mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma reveals a nice smoky and bourbon character upfront, with a touch of toasted malt. Flavour is very complex, bringing out lovely smoke character, accentuated by bourbon barrels, with toasted malt. Finishes peaty and bourbony. Wonderful.

Bottle, shared with the brewery boys. Inky near black pour with deep amber highlights and a low brown head. Surprisingly smokey/peaty for a bourbon barrel, with a lot of residual sugars.
