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.

Bottle at ACBF. Opaque brown beer, no head. TCP and rubber nose! Taste is mercifully much better! Dark malt that is slightly sweet. Smoky whiskey. The chilli seems quite subtle when considering the regular Verdi. I think the smoky whiskey has eaten most of it! Okay!

harrisoni (16706) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2011
Sampled at ACBF 2011. TCP aroma. Rubberaroma too. Not my favourite flavours. Too much peat for me over a juicy impy stout. Chili on the finish lasted in mouth past two more beers.

yngwie (16309) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle at Patricks. Islay 2002. Black, and topped by a dense, finger-thick, light tan head, it certainly deserves its name. Peat, camp-fire, roasted malts, dark sugar, ripe cheese and alcohol on the nose. Full-bodied on the palate, warming, sticky and soft. A light peaty touch, roasted, burnt, licorice-ish, and with some peaty notes in the flavour. Not much bitterness, but it’s still sort of balanced. Lasting finish. A pleasant beer indeed. 120823
