COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial stout aged for at least 6 months in barrels of whiskey from Scotland’s best distilleries (each batch is bottled from a single cask of that year and the area of ​​origin is indicated on the label). It has aromas of vanilla, licorice, chocolate, wood and peat alternating alcoholic and ethereal nuances. In the mouth, warm and soft, complex but balanced: an unforgettable experience. Aged in Speyside Scotch barrels from 1969.

Ingredients: Water, malt, hops, yeast, spices.

myrda (66) - - APR 7, 2014
Noire, dépourvue de mousse. Odeurs fortes de gouache, malt fumé, difficile de déceler autre chose... Titi dit qu’il trouve des notes de légumes cuits, de bouilli quelconque et de fricassé. Choux de Bruxelles. Au goût, définitivement du panait, betteraves et des aubergines. Minéral, terreux, tourbe, cabanon en bois, racines... Texture mince, pour la charge d’arôme. Laisse une douce chaleur d’alcool de whisky qui trahit son pourcentage. Aucune effervescence, laisse un arrière goût de minerais semi doux.

Mortlach (1005) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 9, 2014
09/10/2014 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma cappuccino a grana grossolana, abbondante e persistente. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, note torbate, leggero fruttato, etilico, note di botte, vaniglia, whisky, non male. In bocca note di caffé, whisky torbato, leggera liquirizia, alcol, un po’ stucchevole a lungo andare. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione medio-bassa. Interessante, ma andrebbe leggermente affinata.
