Bottle. Obviously the packaging means nothing to the quality of the beer inside, but damn, this is one fine looking bottle with the capsule covered in off white wax. Completely black with a fine espresso coloured head that is very impressive and lasting for a beer with this alcohol content.
The aroma is packed with Islay whisky notes of tar, Lapsang Souchon tea, seawater and peat smoke. Combine this with classic stout notes of coffee, chocolate and liqourice and add a generous amount of hops and you’re there! Big and surprisingly velvety on the palate. This beer does contain noticeable amounts of residual sugar, but for once this doesn’t make the beer cloying but instead gives it incredible balance vis a vis the bitterness from the hops and the acidity from the roasted malts and the coffee. An outstanding beer that I may re-rate at a later stage and I wouldn’t be surprised if it scores even higher then.
Dark brown, almost black, no head.
Aroma: iodine, tar, turf.
Taste: dry, roasted, spicy bitterness.

Sample, BOTTLE 50 CL. Vintage 2009. Pitch black, dark espresso head. Super strong band aid and iodine aroma, some burnt rubber. Dry roasty taste, marginal notes of dark malts and coffee, hints of chocolate. Iodine. No coffee. Loads of charred wood. Some hoppy bitterness. Really weird, but still good after 8 years. wekker84 (2360) - etten-leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2017

Black color with a bit of really dark brown foam. Aroma has intense peat, rubber, dark liquorice, smoked dried figs. Taste follows with the peated notes, really intense roasted malt and burnt coffee bitterness. Really heavy body, feels like hot chocolate. If you like peated beer or scotch this is for you, if not, stay away because it’s really intense and overpowering. MikeBibere (58) - GREECE - APR 5, 2017
