This beer really gives you the taste of the smokey whiskey whence it was bottled in. Unfortunately Ardbeg iant my favorite, but still an amazing beer.

Bottle, bb 12-15. Pours black & tan. Aroma: peat, iodine, wood, liquorice. Taste: peat, dark chocolate, wood, coffee, almond, ash. Full bodied, creamy, velvety mouthfeel, sweet, with a loooong lasting roasty bitter, boozy finish with woody dryness and peaty goodness. This is one for peat lovers!

On tap @ Six Roses, Lille - FR. Color: deep black beer with no carbonation and small brown head. Smell: roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee domination. Sugar notes and small alcohol presence. Taste: good sensation on mouth, roasted malt and sugar combination is amazing. Coffee domination with almond notes. Aftertaste: high sugar domination with coffee and malt, alcohol notes from the BA. Really nice!

minutemat (5257) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
330ml bottle, thank to Benzai. Pours black with minimal to non-existent off-white head. Aroma is thick diesel barrel. Taste is massive peat, soil, powerful whisky flavours and oaky wood with strong dark malts. Big barrel aged influence on this one.

PsychoGunnar (201) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
One of my favourite beer genres, stored in barrells of my favourite whisky. High expectations! Smells of good whisky, with a lot of peat and a hint of coffee mocca. This is rich in taste, and both very powerful and very strong. The taste has much peat, dark chocolate, some coffee and of course a bit of alcohol. The dark chocolate is unfortunately overpowering the vanilla-like whisky notes I was looking forward to. But still, this is excellent.

Kőkemny imperial stout, mely Ardbeg whisky befolysolstl fűtve erősen tőzegfsts, halvny acetonos, de leginkbb bőrszag aromkat dombort ki; nem a szűz torkoknak val nedű lesz. Szjban tartva igazn telt, vatos sznsavtartalm, s fanyarul des-savany zhats kert hatalmba minket, de termszetesen az igazi csattan a korty vgeztvel kvetkezik be, melynek sorn megzlelhetjk a fsts whisky-jegyek ltal belengett kalmopyrines keserűsget, amivel az egybknt sima s brsonyos test bcszik.

mutz (1024) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
Zwart van kleur, ik moest moeite doen om er wat kraag op te krijgen maar eenmaal aanwezig bleef die onverwacht lang en plakkerig aanwezig. Olieachtige dik. Aroma van drop,stroop, peper. De whisky, hout en turfgeur rook ik alleen in het begin even. Smaakt pittig peperig, koffie, vaag whisky, vrij zoet. Veel body en nasmaak. Goed spul.

Alengrin (5168) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
The Ardbeg barrel aged version of Emelisse Imperial Russian Stout. Thin beige head, colour totally black. Strong peaty and whisky-like aroma, bitter chocolate, restrained candied fruitiness, coffee powder and ashes. Velvety and powdery mouthfeel, concentrated flavour, dry and very smoky with strong roasted bitterness, peaty and alcoholic finish, but not too wry; whisky is present from beginning to finish, as if it were effectively added - not very subtle, actually. Interesting and complex enough, though.
