0,33l fles gedeeld met Nikos. Zwart met een minimale bruine kraag. Aroma van turf, leukoplast steenkool. Smaak is vurig bitterzoet met rubber en peated whisky. Afdronk vol en lang met dronk en salmiak tonen. Mondgevoel is olieachtig. Erg mooie balans tussen het bier en de whisky. Zwiebel88 (637) - GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015

Appearance: black beer with allmost a ring of beige head.
Aroma: Wood,Peat, roasted malts, chocolate.
Taste: Peat, roadted malts, wood, some sweetness , some chocolate.

Arderg barrels really dominatuing the brew which will make or break.
Great brew but if you don’t like peat stay away from it.

Pours a black colour. Taste and aroam is smokey and whisky like. Thick and oily on the palate, very good. Cheers Mike_77 madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2014

Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Big TCP nose, not pleasant. Palate is smooth and dry with mild fine carbonation. Smooth semi dry dark malts. Mild alcohol spice. Touch of dry lactose. Dominated by big TCP. Dry finish. TCP lingers on. Way too peaty TCP for me.
Black, no head. Aroma of smoke, peat and leather. Flavour is dry, woody, smokey. Has an oily texture with no carbonation. Overall it’s too peaty and smokey. Somewhat out of balance. Iznogud (3800) - CROATIA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml at Café Buitenlust, Oirschot. Pours black with beige head. Peat, smoke, roasted aroma. Roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, peat, smoke, whiskey. Warming alcohol. Complex. My first BA beer and I loved it. Great stuff. greenclansman (906) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - NOV 10, 2014
Pitch black oily color. Nice smoked-peated aromas. Roasted malt taste...smooth smoked aftertaste. jookos (6762) - FINLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Black, tan head. Deep dark roasted, charred, barley, old oak, bit acidic peat, dry chocolate. The aroma doesn’t really impress that much. Rather messy, over roasted, slight alcoholic. Fulll body. Roasty, sweets, bitters to leave a dry finish. Messy, but intensive. Feels like a homebrew actually. Not bad, just sort of chaotic. maruno (49) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2014
In brand bulb glass, pours pure black without any real head till the last bubbles float up. Smell immediately remembers you what’s on the label: the smell of peaty Ardbeg whisky combined with some sweeter notes. Tastes sweet, ending in a very long bitter finish. Aroma’s of dark chocolate mixed with whisky and some hint of peaty smoke and wood. Very light carbonisation. This makes he hunger for Ardbeg as a desert. :) Best of whisky and stout.
