Embrouille (2852) - - FEB 6, 2013
Bottled 375ml. Pitch black with no head at all. Leather, vanilla, peat and smoke are most present in the nose. Full bodied. No carbonation. Extremely smooth. Incredibly delicious- this is a great version of the Black Hole. Underrated in my opinion.

Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2017
Aroma: Vegemite and deep smokey peat App: super black excellent Flavour: rich smokey malt, good hints of being barrel aged Palate: super thick, needed some carbonation but otherwise super long finish leaving you breathing an ashtray ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rotin (1491) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 21, 2017
Bottle 0.375l. Cloudy, brown to black colored. AROMA- strongly peated whiskey, dark chocolate. FLAVOR- slightly sweet, strong alcohol presence, dark chocolate, whiskey, peat, cocoa powder, ash.
Too thin bodied for me, unbalanced.

Bottle. Black, without head. Aroma of whisky, peaty smoky tones, chocolate, ash. Taste is neutral, a bit sweet, burn bitter finish. Cocoa powder, peaty, chocolate, pralines, alcohol. Medium body (a bit thin for abv), low carbonation.
Interesting, but too empty, without richness of another impies, almost one-dimensional.
Personal note: 4/4 wedding anniversary impie.

Korcz (3372) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 28, 2017
2010. Troszkę lepiej, torf ratuje, szczególnie w smaku, coś się dzieje. Ale i tak słabo.

3.5
JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, 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

Gerbeer (3745) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2016
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 don’t think srong peat beers age very well,..

phaleslu (10246) - 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.

2.5
SlackerMads (3360) - DENMARK - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle 2010 edition thanks to pentaz. Black with no head. Massive peated smoke; ink, earth, wood. Booze, caramel. Rough and inky.

Inbreak (5885) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
18.02.2016, 0,375l bottle (2010 vintage) shared @ BBGTC tasting:
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.
