Had an aged version at the brewpub that clocked in stronger at 9.2%. Dark brown w reddish accent. Thin head. Smells smoke/peat, lots of toffeeish malt, the taste is rich and syrupy. Light smoke. Intense. Really nice dessert beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky deep brown poor with a slight off white head. Really nice deep flavours from the malts. Sweet, flavours of molasses and treacle but well balanced as in after one drink I could have had another. Tasty wee number that I drunk just a little to fast.
