Trübes dunkelbraun mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Röstmalzig, Raucharomen, torfig, etwas Kaffee, dunkle Schokolade. SimonBlok (715) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2017
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: pitchblack with low, beige head that dissipates quite quickly. Aroma: smoke, smoked bellpepper, peat, cacao, coffee. Quite hard to sense other aromas, since the smoke is pretty dominant and saturates the nose. Taste: pretty high sweetness and high bitterness. Notes of roasted malts, smoke, peat, dark bread, dark chocolate and cacao. Long finish with notes of bread and licorice. Palate: full bodied, thicky oily texture and medium carbonation.

Bottle @ company tasting. 2013 edition. Pitch black body with a big beige head. Strong aroma of roasted dark malt with smoked meat and peat, wood and coffee. Flavor is sweetish, roasted dark malt, peat and smoke like aroma, coffee, moderate bitterness and rather well camouflaged alcohol (compared with the 50/50 Eclipse we had just before this one has almost no alcohol in flavor). Fine balanced body and long lasting aftertaste. Smooth and well made, much more balanced and expected for a peated, strong alcohol beer. SzymonF (29) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 30, 2017
Wędzonka, torf, spalone kable, delikatna czekolada. Torfowość zbyt przytłaczająca przez co piwo staje się jednowymiarowe phaleslu (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2017
330 ml bottle from The Party Source. 2011 vintage, 10% ABV. Starts to gush a little when opened. Uh oh. Pours a deep, dark, nearly opaque brown with yeast sediment gathering at the bottom and an inch of fizzy tan head that settles into a lasting ring and film. Notes of rich roasted and smoky malts, peat, dark chocolate, hickory, ash, licorice, tobacco, earth, molasses, black olives, and subtle herbs and spice. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, roasty, sweet, smoky mouthfeel. Maybe a little oxidized. I haven't had one of these in a while, an old, rich Euro imperial stout and I kinda dug it for the nostalgia factor.

W nosie przyjemny, nienachalny torf, trochę asfaltu, podmokłego lasu, wygładzony delikatnie czekoladą gorzką. W smaku torf trochę spłaszcza piwo, torf wybija się na pierwszy plan, w tle jakieś kakaowo-palone nuty. wlajwl (7007) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 18, 2017
Aroma is liquor/bourbon, very thick dark malts and rubber/peat. The flavor is pears/rubber, dark malts and a warming alcoholic/slightly sweet finish.
