Belgo (154) - Kge, - JAN 27, 2010
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 youre there! Big and surprisingly velvety on the palate. This beer does contain noticeable amounts of residual sugar, but for once this doesnt 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 wouldnt be surprised if it scores even higher then.

SkillsFactory (631) - ITALY - DEC 1, 2016
Bottiglia, 33 cl. best before 05/08/2016, aperta il 1 dicembre 2016. Nera con riflessi caramello, schiuma color cioccolato fondente non troppo persistente che non svanisce mai del tutto. Aroma di Whisky torbato, legno, caff, cioccolato fondente, zucchero di canna, toffee e leggera vaniglia. Al palato attacca col Whisky, successivamente torba e legno, poi si passa al caff zuccherato per poi tornare al legno misto a caff tostato, il tutto accompagnato da un piacevolissimo tepore etilico accomunabile al Whisky. Nocciola tostata nel retrolfatto. Corpo pieno, "masticabile", poco carbonata, davvero appagante ed elegante.

CyborgX (77) - THAILAND - NOV 24, 2016
Tap - perhaps a slight bourbon aroma, but nothing really discernable. Taste is well balanced sweetness with bitter, but with no flavours coming to the fore, it's good but rather nondescript, going down with very little taste profile at all, just ending on a slight bitter note. Alcohol is reasonably well hidden. I wouldn't order again, coz seriously the taste is very weak, possibly due to wverything cancelling each other out, but whatever the reason, it's like drinking flavoured water with a strong alcohol warmth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mateuszk (2426) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 18, 2016
Bottle. Black in colour, creamy beige head. Aroma is mainly Islay whisky with roastiness, chocolate from stout. In taste sweetish, smoky with coffee aftertaste. Full bodied, oily, creamy, soft carbonation, finish was sweetish. Something for the fans of Islay, because it on the first plan here, still really tasty beer.

Zlotta (2524) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.5 l bottle. Sweetish, malty and rather peaty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, ash and iodine. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and slightly peaty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, ash, tar and some iodine, followed by a medium long, slightly roasty-bitter, moderately peaty finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very nice!
