Doskonaly imperialny stout. Czuc aromat whisky z daktylami i innymi suszonymi owocami. Finisz dlugi, przyjemnie alkoholowo rozgrzewajacy. Piwo ciezkie i syte geste smoliste i piekielnie wytrawne. Lepsza moim zdaniem ta wersja od podstawowej. Cuso (8688) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle from brewery. Dark brown color with almost no head. Aroma of plums, whiskey, wood, earthy notes. Taste, sweet, chocolate, coffee, licorice, caramel, syrup, whiskey, smoked wood. Coffee bitter, peated finish. Very nice, even better than not peated version. knotthead (15) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Wonderful smoky aroma, coffee-like and slightly sludgy appearance, not too dark colour. Great flavour with a long dark smoky aftertaste. Not offensively smoky, though. Really nice stout. alethol (133) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2015
Great beer. Pours pitch black with a small beige head. Wonderful, complex aromas of peat, whiskey, smoke. Same taste, creamy, slightly sweet, no hard edges. Love this. JefVerstraete (3355) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2016
Old bottle from my cellar. Pitch black colour, creamy brown foam. Nose of roasted malts, coffee chocolate. Syrupy. Light sweet, lots of peat. Very nice imperial stout!

Bottle @ home. Aroma is earthy peat, slight iodine and quite some roasty malt. Flavour is deep peaty liquorice bitterness, big roast, molasses, smoke, ash and asphalt. Great balance. Awesome. Hotbeerboy (25) - - DEC 26, 2012

Clear dark purple brown beer, creamy solid beige to brown head, very stable, adhesive. Aroma: (first cold, straight from the tap) very hoppy, grassy, on warming up a bit dusty, cocoa powder, fruity esters. MF: soft carbon, full body, smooth creamy texture. Taste: chocolate, more chocolate, mocha, whipped cream, cocoa powder.little sweet, sugary, bitter hops, bit grassy. Aftertaste: dark chocolate, mocha, bitter hops, some vanilla, bit smoky, ashes, dry hoppy ending with still some fruity notes.
Black beer with a small mocca colored head. Smell is faint with some malty porter scents, smokey, with a light whisky aroma. But the taste is packed with flavor. After some sips the whisky really starts to come through. It has a malty base with some creamy chocolate, smokiness and light hoppiness. Quickly after it you get the whisky aroma followed with a robust roasted peaty bitter and a dry finish with the peat lingering a little bit. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. This is one heck of a good balanced flavor packed porter/stout beer. The added peated whisky really brings something special to it. Way better then their regular IRS in my book :D jinroh (1595) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours pitch black, nice head. This brew is truly full of peat smoke. Alcohol sticks it to your nose like whiskey. Taste is incredibly peaty as well, peat smoke from the beginning to the end. Taste lingers for long. Very strong taste, actually quite sweet body, has also decent amount of hops and herbs. Really massive über-drink.
