Borresteijn (7342) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2017
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Black colour, beige-brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, liquorice, hint of leather, just light peaty, light booze, wood, caramel. Flavour is medium sweet to sweet, caramel, liquorice, hint of peat, light fruity, wood, boozy, bordering on green apples, roasted malts, bitter woody finish. Medium bodied, slick. Good, but far from their best, and not nearly as peated as expected. fletchfighters (1546) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2017
330 ML bottle
Pitch black pour, Dark brown head. Spotty lacing, falls to a thick collar.
nose is dark, earthy, bitter chocolate, soft roast, smoke, peat, and iodine. Slightly medicinal and herbal nose.
taste is a touch thin and sweet. Soft peat and more slightly sweet chocolate. Good balance between the two.
Feel is slightly thinner than expected but more balanced between sweet and peat. Some flashes of roast. Dry roasty finish. Solid BA beer Bootlegger007 (243) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2017
Bottle from Mane Liquor, I really enjoyed the light peat aroma, earthy. Black as night with a thick dark rocky head. Heavy bitter aftertaste, which I enjoy. Unreal, I love it! Soupoftoday (85) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2017
A strange imperial stout in that lacks depth and fullness for this ABV. Instead of deep roasty choc and coffee flavors this stout tastes kind of light and sugary. Predominant flavors are icing sugar and and subtle marzipan. Doesn’t taste very ’stouty’. With these lighter sugary flavors the peated malt does not work well and tastes a bit muddled. sjogro (4405) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2017
Shared from bottle at puttetjes’. Black with tan head. Sweet roasted chocolate malts, mild peat, licorice, salmiak, some fruity almost tart berries. Big sweet, light salt and bitter. Over medium body and soft carbonation. Light and balanced aged palate. Nice roasty, and not too peaty.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Black with big dark beige head. Lots of peat, licorice, roasted malts, iodine, dark chocolate, roasted oak, sweet toffee, some vanilla. Over medium sweet and bitter. Almost full bodied. Very peaty but nice. Bijl (742) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2017
Gitzwart, bruine schuimkraag met mooie lacing, iets koolzuur.
Aroma: Donkere mout, vanille, whisky, zoetig, alcohol. Nagenoeg geen peat in het aroma.
Wat fruitige tonen....donker fruit en rozijnen.
Smaak: Roasty, donkere mout, ziltig, salmiak, jodium. Licht peat.... zeker niet op de voorgrond. Wat kruidige en peperige hinten geven met de alcohol/whisky een mooie warmte. Voldoende roast, chocolade en koffie, iets vanille en een droge bitter. De whisky en oak komen vooral in de nasmaak naar voren...ook daar is de peat iets sterker.
Vollle body en romig en olieachtig mondgevoel. Voor die gene die niet van te rokerig houden is dit een must. Mooi in balans... mooie RIS. jfb (6509) - GERMANY - MAY 11, 2017

Bottle from Saveur Biere. Deep dark brown beer, cola looking with small beige head. Aroma has lots of sugar, some roastiness, malts, light whiskey feeling and hints of coffee. Taste has sweet sugar and caramel with malts, some whiskey also. Low carbonation, medium+ body. A bit too one-sided.
