karpik (1134) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 25, 2016
Aroma is all about peat. Mostly hospital-like scents - bandages, iodine followed by burned cables and tires as well as wood, ash. Light chocolate and vanilla in the backgound. Pours black with beautiful beige head. Taste is medium sweet with all these peat notes from the aroma. Chocolate and vanilla are more distinct in the taste but still they’re playing second fiddle here. Medium bitter finish, ashy, full body, soft carbo. Overall very aggresisve but really tasty brew.

Echon (535) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2016
Black. Aroma and flavour are both rich, with lots of roasted barley, liquorice notes, smoke, whiskey and wood. Full and somewhat pungent taste, with solid sweetness. Dry and medium bitter finish with a bit of alcohol. Full body and a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a wonderful imperial stout. Complex, due to the huge malt profile and evident barrel aging. Ardbeg complements it very well. It does become a bit cloying toward the end of the bottle, though.

ALIBALI (1989) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2016 Die für mich so typisch, mit DeMolen Biere verbindende, medizinische Kühle ist definitv auch hier anwesend. Das Ardberg Fass hat also sein teuflisches Werk vollbracht, denn auch starke Rauchschwaden ziehen durch den Schlund. In der Nase noch klar vom Schlage Whisky, geht’s im Mäulchen erst richtig rund. Die ölige Textur spielt ihr ganzes OEuvre aus, der Sud gleitet förmlich die Kehle hinab, und hinterläßt üppig angesüßte Rauchröstflavours der Extraklasse. Am Ende vielleicht etwas zu kantig und alkoholisch. Trotzdem kommen irgendwann auch unsere allseits beliebten Hoppyhops zum Einsatz, maybe als rotfruchtiger Überwurf !? Who knows ?? 🙂 0,33/7€ aus dem CRAFT BEER STORE HH. BOTTLE.

LRonCupboard (64) - Belfast, NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle at arendsnest. Pitch black, good beige head - long lasting. Monster medicinal sweet peat aroma, with lots of malt and bonfire smoke. Pretty full body, light carbonation. Immense peat hits you on tasting, with moderate sweetness. Medicinal theme continues in a roasted, burnt tar like, boozy long finish. Decent

3.7
mariuspoenari (2637) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle shared at Murphy’s Law, The Hague. Pitch black pour with a nice tan head. Notes of peat, smoke, whiskey, dark chocolate, raw cocoa powder. Full body, medium to low carbonation and a smokey bitter-sweet finish.

3.6
Rask0lnikov (1257) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 12, 2016
330ml bottle. BB 2020. Pitch black colour. Beige mexium head. Smoke, peat, raisins, sourness of the berries, hints of bread in the aroma. Smoke, peat at first. Lots of whiskey. Alcocholy notes. Hints of chocolate, raisins. Hints of smoke, oakiness and very light notes of cocoa. Whiskey and alcochol in the aftertaste. Makes warm inside. Rather heavy bodied. Rather heavy bodied, bitter, tart peated and alcocholy palate. Ardberg barrel tends to bring out lot of smoke and peat. Alcochol here makes it too harsh. Otherwise quite interesting brew.
