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.

ciocanelu (2042) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 6, 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 its really intense and overpowering.

BlazerT (982) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Bottle. Teku. Pitch black with moderate, thick, light brown, moderately aggressive head. Good head retention and poor to moderate lacing. Moderately roasted malts aromas - mainly milk chocolate, some coffee, partly covered by moderate Islay (peated) whiskey notes. This brings up front some wooden, barrel, dry, harsh and raw notes, which is somehow quite interesting. Moderately sweet and moderately bitter - long, stable. Medium body, oily and thick texture, soft carbonation, finish is dry, semi-bitter, seated, wooden, slightly boozy. In overall really good brew with nice seated, BA accents.

magicmn (168) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle in Mikkeller bar Copenhagen. Black as night, thin dark head, delicate aroma of good Islay Scotch with some malty and coffee notes on background. Wellrounded full body, sweet coffee, chocolate and Islay works great! A good combination.

SkillsFactory (674) - 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 (96) - 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
