2cl sample at kulminator. Pours black. Aroma is boooze, sweet, chocolate. Flavor is sweet and bitter, burning booze. Finish is chocolate. Overall: interesting alcoholic drink, but not s beer.

375 ml bottle that AdamChandler received in a trade. Thanks guys overseas!! Almost a clear brown color. Aroma is mild malt and huge grain alcohol. Maybe raisins, maybe.

The flavor is not mild. Holy hell, massive alcohol. More rubbing alcohol. Massive burn, harsh. Yikes.

crystal clear pour with a raisin tint. no sediment. smells wonderful. salt, smoke, cocoa, sweetener. oh jeez. intensely bitter, boozy, just insane. The Laphroig barrel comes through quickly with smoke and sea-salt. wow. UUUUUUUH. insanity. nice bitterness there.

Bottle at THT tasting. The aroma has chocolate, hint of peat, massive alcohol. Black coloured stuff, no head. The taste is East Europe home-distilled grappa/wodka with some tones of chocolate and peat. What a disaster. Luckily I am not blind now.

Bottle from a share. Nose is smoky soy sauce. Burns the nose hairs. Taste is charred alcohol and burns my chest. Holy bad. No. Just stop. Just a ton of smoked alcohol. Owe.

Deep ruby-brown color with no head. Peaty scotch aroma, boozy, honey (mead-like). Smooth very peaty-scotch flavor with some chocolate and heavily charred oak, some honey sweetness. Like a chocolate scotch, or a scotch that had been aged in a stout barrel. The scotch-like burn lingers quite a while. Notes: Bottle from the Struise shop in Bruges, Sep ’16; 2012 vintage opened Mar ’17.

Nip bottle thanks to Daniel. Pours a muddy brown with no head. The aroma is smoke, peat, booze, wood. Thin body, peat, ash, smoke, strong alcohol burn, good.

Oesu, ale dziwne. Na pewno mniej alkoholowe niż Pablo Eiscobar, choć wciąż alko jest bardzo wyraźne, gdzieś pomiędzy mocną nalewką a torfowym whisky. Ale obok tego sporo ciała, masa suszonych, macerowanych w alkoholu ciemnych owoców, czekoladowe, palone akcenty zepchnięte na drugi, może nawet i trzeci plan. Totalnie jako ciekawostka, raczej bym do niego nie wrócił.

Kapsel (373) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Zupełnie nie wiem jak ocenić to piwo(?). Za dużo oprócz alkoholu tutaj nie wyczułem, może też dlatego, że ostatni akcent panelu.
