Maakun (7101) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2018
Bottle shared, thanks to Bierkoning for the bottle! Nice! Very dark brown with some dark beige bubbles. Lots of licorice, soft molasses, coffee, quite some whisky and a bit of peat. Quite dry woody whisky with a bit of smoke, but not a full on peated Scotch. Some sweet dark berries and caramel, earthy and some miso. Overall it’s quite sweet with over medium bitterness and a quite umami finish. Almost full bodied with low carbonation. Great balance, very nice beer. sjogro (5403) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2018
Bottle at Maakun’s, thanks! Best before 03/14. Black with little tan ring. Sweet deep roasted chocolate malts, massive peat, whisky, rye, licorice, soy sauce, oysters, moldy oak wood. Moderate sweet and big bitter. Nice roasty and dense. Full body, and little carbonation. Lot of complexity going on still for this old boy. Shout out to Edo too, cool to try! tiong (7896) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours pitch black with no head. Aroma of peaty malts, leather, whisky, roastiness, wood and oak. Taste is peaty, sweet and woody with some oak, leather, whisky and earthiness. Finish is slick, peaty and sweetish with loads of wood, whisky, oak and leather. Intense, very peaty, but still pretty smooth and slick. Sigmund (8148) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2016
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. ABV is 11%, 75 EBU. Black colour, minimal tan head. Aroma of roast malts, peated whisky, tar and iodine. Low carbonation. Sweet flavour, but the peat soon overpowers the sweetness. Notes of tar, liquorice and iodine. Holmen2 (4433) - NORWAY - MAY 12, 2016
