Alengrin (5187) - 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 (3096) - Hagen / Bonn, 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 (9915) - 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.

Batavi (386) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 Van de tap bij biercaf Kandinsky Tilburg. Helder amberkleurig bier met een kleine lichtbeige schuimkraag. Aroma van karamel, whisky, gerookt hout en turf. Duidelijke whisky tonen in het smaakpallet, krachtig met aardse turf accenten. Smaak is droog redelijk bitter, met een zachte carbonatie en een droge licht rokerige finish met duidelijk de verwarmende alcohol van 11%. Van de tap wellicht net iets te koud voor een juiste beoordeling van aroma en smaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at De Paas, Den Haag. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is rich phenolic, smoky, alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter with a rich smooth woody alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

RW80 (2500) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2015
33cl bottle. Appearance. Dark amber colour with a nice off-white head with small bubbles. Head leaves nice lacing and has a good retention.. Aroma: smoky, peat, malty, caramel. Taste: Strong smoky, peat and alcoholic with a caramel sweetness. Finish has just enough bitterness to make it work. Allthough the end result is still to boozy. Medium to full body, soft carbonation.
