Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Clear, reddish brown with a rough, beige head. Lightly peaty smoke in the nose, also hard roasted malt and some alcohol. Quite full-bodied, fruity - dried fruit - vanilla and hard burned malts. Distinct malt bitterness. 240709

Cybercat (3377) - Georgia, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Pours a deep, opaque sable with a fairly thick and somewhat persistent tan head. Aroma is strong and smoky with undertones of coffee and unsweetened chocolate as well as a firm overtone of whiskey. Flavor is smoky and a little malty with a firm whiskey bite as well as hints of unsweet chocolate, coffee and toffee - downright lip-smacking. Texture is thick and oily-smooth, leaving a good tingle as it goes down.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 21, 2009
(Bottled) Very dark reddish brown with a small, beige and lacy head. Quite smoky, sweetish-syrupy-malty aroma with salty licorice, vanilla, and hints of peat. Flavor is salty-licoricey with tar, some smoke, vanilla, slightly sweet malt. Medium body with evident but warming and not disturbing alcohol, and very soft and low carbonation. Very tasty and quite balanced, although maybe a bit thin in the end.
