Thanks to Colin for sharing this one. Huge smoke and peat aromas. Sweet with monstrous peat and smoke notes. A little on the watery side.

Draught at lrepubliken, Gterborg, on April 9, 2013.
During the De Molen Tap Takeover event.
Clear dark red color, minute tan head. Sweet, acidic, wood, peat taste. Acidic and peat, dry aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Peat, whisky, acidic scent. Also green apples.
Too much peat, wood, whisky character, also too acidic and too much green apples. That is for my taste.

Leighton (20811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
On tap at Borefts BF 2012, Bodegraven. Pours dark black-brown with a fine, beige foam head. Rich dark chocolate on the nose, some smokey barrel notes. Big sweet flavor with oily chocolate, moderte roast, light peat, burnt sugars. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Chewy. Lightly warming finish with further oily chocolate notes, rich chocolate cake, light roast and peat. Great stuff. Fine, Im a sucker for the De Molen monster stouts.

bluejacket74 (1982) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2013
330 ml bottle, bottled on August 28, 2012. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown with pretty much no head at all. Not much lacing, either. I like the aroma a lot, it smells like peated whisky (well, Laphroaig), wood, smoke/ash, and some iodine. Taste is mostly like the aroma, but theres also a bit of licorice noticeable. But this brew is all about the peat and whisky. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its on the thinner side for a stout with very low carbonation. At the same time, its also a bit slick and coating. I liked this brew (just because of the smell and taste), but then I also like peaty Scotch Whisky. If youre not into that, then you probably wont like this.

Bottle shared pours dark brown with a ring tan head. Aroma is massive peat upfront, with chocolate, roasted malt, wood and licorice. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Long sweet finish with smoke. Full bodied with no real carbonation.
