Echon (495) - rhus, 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 (1575) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2016 Die fr mich so typisch, mit DeMolen Biere verbindende, medizinische Khle 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, gehts im Mulchen erst richtig rund. Die lige Textur spielt ihr ganzes OEuvre aus, der Sud gleitet frmlich die Kehle hinab, und hinterlt ppig angeste Rauchrstflavours der Extraklasse. Am Ende vielleicht etwas zu kantig und alkoholisch. Trotzdem kommen irgendwann auch unsere allseits beliebten Hoppyhops zum Einsatz, maybe als rotfruchtiger berwurf !? Who knows ?? 🙂 0,33/7 aus dem CRAFT BEER STORE HH. BOTTLE.

LRonCupboard (60) - 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

Rask0lnikov (1085) - 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.

markoijelena (3073) - Belgrade / Amsterdam, SERBIA - JUL 27, 2016
Draft 0.15l at Proeflokaal Arendsnest Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 03.06.2016. Taste with cika Boban. Pour it dark color with small black head. Aroma of coffee, some red fruits. Taste starts with maybe too much smoked woody feel for me, continues with coffee, at the end good balance, long finish with sourish after taste. Good
