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. 330ml bottle. BB 2020. Has been in the cellar more than two years. Pours black colour. Medium beige brownish head. Peat, whiskey, smoke in the aroma. Peat, smoke, cocoa, whiskey in the taste. Cocoa, whiskey and peat in the aftertaste. Has gone mellower. Quite good balance.

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

Arômes de chocolat, robe noire, mousse beige stable, faible carbonation. En bouche, cacao, amertume et grains torréfiés. Corps onctueux qui soutien le tout.

Shark_Pants (765) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2016
330ml bottle BB Dec 2020. Impenetrable black with nice foamy persistent mocha head. Oak and peat smoke immediately apparent in the aroma, along with vanilla, roasted meat, leather, dark chocolate. Very smoky and oaky in flavour too, with big molasses, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, dry oak tannins. Quite dry and roasty in the finish. Medium to full bodied and lightly acidic. Really good but would’ve benefited from further aging to round it.

beerplace (2040) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2016
On tap at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Pours a murky dark brown, almost black with a strong beige head. Aroma is totally like Isle Whiskey with peat notes. Taste is very complex: dark fruits, burnt malt, peat, smokey. Burnt malt, peat aftertaste. Amazing!

Soft and creamy in mouthfeel, a lots of smoke in the taste. Good blending with the very nice imp stout
