Made with the most heavily peated malt in the world from the Bruichladdich distillery. Almost pitch black and opaque, small head. Furiously peated aroma, hiding the malt, licorice and dark chocolate somewhat. Very full bodied, thick mouthfeel, like fluid bread. Dark chocolate, loads of peat, lapsang souchong tea, chocolate cake, culminating in an almost endless aftertaste that also has licorice.
Alcohol varies by batch.

Pours a thin black or dark brown with light edges and a huge foamy khaki-colored head. Smells of phenolic smoke immediately reminding me of peat smoke. Bit of a peppered beef jerky aroma underneath. As it warms, and I acclimate to the smokiness, campfire-roasted marshmallows and milk chocolate notes emerges. Flavor is not so intense as the nose would suggest. There is a roasty, yet smooth maltiness, almost a bit chewy that stands up to the spicy peat. I can pick up hints of things like tootsie roll-like chocolate, caramel and dark chocolate pot de crme, but the peat smoke is still the dominant note. The peat does not, however, overpower this hefty brew overall.

brnandersen (3518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2013
33 cl. bottle poured in to a snifter. Pitch black with a huge, tanned head. Roasted aroma with rich malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and licorice. Smoked malts and peat. An yeasty-fruity note. Taste is sweet. Full body, thick feel, soft carbonation. Finishes dry with peat, smoked notes and rich chocolate. Rich and satisfying.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Pours an opaque black and a massive soapy long lasting tan head that leaves some lace. Aroma is peated malt up front, roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and as it warms up dark fruits come out. Flavour is quite peaty, moderate alcohol warming, mild bitterness, dry, coffee, earthy, dark dried fruit and some dark chocolate. A very interesting mixture.

Im actually not a stout fan but I heard that this was good so I thought Id give it a go. Im so glad that I did. Very smooth taste, a touch of caramel and a very pleasant aftertaste. Looked wonderful in the glass.
