2010. Troszkę lepiej, torf ratuje, szczeglnie w smaku, coś się dzieje. Ale i tak słabo.

JPDIPSO (6000) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Near black pour with a thin lid of tan bubbles that later are just a ring about the glass. Roasted malt and iodine in the aromas. Quite dry from the start with black malt and tar bitterness. Slightly buttery. Flavors seem a bit thin along with the body 9/11

375 ml. 2011 vintage. Pours black with no head. Aromas of clean peat, iodine and licorice. Flavors of watery peat, iodine and alcohol wth chewy roasted malts. Interesting but overpiced. I dont think srong peat beers age very well,..

phaleslu (9782) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2016
375 ml bottle purchased from The Wine and Cheese Place in 2010 and 2011 - I had one of each year. Both opened blindly alongside all other variants. Both pour a deep, nearly opaque dark brown with minimal tan head that settles into a ring. Both have notes of peat, earth, charred wood, dark chocolate, molasses, rubber, burnt sugar, coffee grounds, and smoke. Both are medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a coating, woody, peaty, and smooth mouthfeel. But the 2010 version was a little more intensely barrel-forward, and the 2011 version was a little bit mellower and thinner. I had the years mixed up in my guesses. 2010 got a 4.0, 2011 got a 3.8 that was changed to a 3.9.

No head, just some bubbles. Aroma is dry mineraly, peat, weeds, leather, minerals, alcohol, bark, oak, dark malts, burnt sugar. Taste is dry peated, bark, peat, leather, minerals, weeds, oak, alcohol, paper, burnt sugar. Medium bitterness, dry mineraly mouthfeel. Not really my cup of tea.

tmrmwel (1921) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle, enjoyed 3,5 years after bottling. Pours pitch black, with a creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, with cocoa, peated islay whisky and coffee, as well as oak, heather, tannins and tobacco. Full body with creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, with cocoa, oak barrels, liquorice and leather as well as coffee, earth, heather and peat whisky with a sting of alcohol. Lingering sweet malts and peat in the finish.

nimbleprop (7856) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 20, 2014
375ml bottle pours a murky black with some clumpy brown head. Nose... well, here we go, loads of rubber band, almost a bit of fresh tire too (not a compliment), heavy char, a little salty too - like a camp fire of driftwood. Flavor has some malt sweetness but its way too smokey, way to salty and too sweet. Finish is harsh. Drain pour.
