Dark ruby-red colour, steady beige head. Not much Islay in the nose but red berries and whiskey-like alcohol. Medium to full-bodied. Soft palate. Toffee, caramel, low bitterness. Probably barrel ageing has done the smoothness but Islay is not really dominating here. Not typical De Ranke either. Some vanilla but not much of peat or smoke but when it warms up some notes of Islay. Hides alcohol well. Easy sipper.
Collab of Six Degrees North with De Ranke, thanks Stefan for sharing. A quad aged on Islay whisky barrels, with thick and dense, creamy, pale yellowish beige head and very dark but translucent bronze robe with burgundy brown hue. Aroma of chestnuts, stewed pear, cola, vanilla-ish oak, candied fig, some light peat (as in: real moist peat, not so much the iodine), blackberry jam, banana, almond, treacle, toffee, liquorice. Fruity onset but in a ’clean’ and orderly way, some banana, black cherry, fig, sourish elderberry-like accent, candi sugar sweetness but nothing obnoxiously cloying, bit oily mouthfeel, softish carbo. Caramelly malt sweet core, nutty, bit resinous; again the peat aspect remains subtle and limited, though a whisky-ish flavour is noticeable, including an afterglow of warming alcohol; some tea-ish herbal hops provide soft bitterishness but it is the candi sugary sweetness that remains. Bit unusual quadrupel-ish beer, technically well executed, but my expectations were higher considering De Ranke’s contribution and this could have been more ’deeply’ peated for me as well. fonefan (50674) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2017

Tasted this at Six Degrees North, Glasgow on the 25th November 2016. Keg dispense. Dark ruby red in colour with a thin pale buff head. Strong malty aroma with notes of light wood smoke. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts deliver a moist maltloaf base with rich flavours of syrupy raisins, black coffee, dark chocolate present. Could detect no hop resins in the aftertaste at all! Finish is powerful and malty with malt whisky warmth, oak cask, old leather and prune fruit starting to appear as the ale warmed up and giving a slight dryness in the palate. My favourite ale in the bar list!
