sjogro (3187) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear reddish amber with firm white head. Sweet caramel malts, smokey peat, gumballcoating, dried fruits, sweet grain, white raisins and alcohol. Big sweet, light bitter. Over medium body, under average carbonation. Long bittersweet whiskeylike finish. A strong beer and a weak whisky in one! One of those times you grab a beer without looking at the abv: 11% malt bomb "refreshment". My bad though. X-D

Alengrin (4814) - BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle shared by Craftmember, cheers! Strong whisky beer with coarse, moussy, pale greyish white head, quite stable, misty orangey amber colour with slight brownish hue. Strong aroma of natural peat rather than the iodine I expected, brine, dried orange peel, caramel, bitter honey, biscuit, apricot, dried leaves, peanut. Soft fruity onset, rounded, with some peach and orange sweetishness, basic sourishness, very light salty touch, supple thick caramelly malt sweetness, phenolic spiciness all around but manageable and not disturbing, pairing with the retronasal, pure peat aromas at the back, while a subtle hop bitterness drying the finish along with quite strong, whisky-like alcohol, lasting long and very warming without truly burning. Interesting, probably the best peated beer I had so far, feels like a peated barley wine. Nice work!

Zlotta (2511) - Hagen, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
On tap at Caf Hesp. Clear, reddish amber, tan to white head. Malty, heavily peaty aroma of peat, iodine and some caramel. Malty, heavily peaty taste of peat, iodine and some caramel, followed by a medium long, slightly bitter, heavily peaty finish. Medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, flat. Very special, but quite nice, although totally unbalanced.

JorisPPattyn (9668) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2016
Huge brownish cream head over faintly veiled orange-amber beer; shards of lace. Phenolic nose, tarr, gouache, malts. Very smoked-tarry-phenolic; but not much behind it. There are sweet malts present, but not the kind of truckload one might expect at 11%ABV. Bit of banana, orange. Sweetness increases gradually. Dry-out effect, but more in the throat than on the frontteeth. Medium to well-bodied, quite slick-oily. Too much sugar, not enough malts. Might have turned out better.

An amazing and complicated beer. A very heavy whiskey taste, with a full-bodied aftertaste.
