11.2 Fl Oz. Bottle. Pours black, medium tan head, decent lacing. Aroma is quite smokey some malts, and I think some dark fruit. Taste is also very smokey, perhaps sweet with some malts and some whiskey notes.Itís good but it is also a sipper.

Bottle. Dark pour with a smaller white head. Smoked ham, whiskey, and wood in the aroma and taste. Moderate palate yet full. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330 ml bottle, bottled on 8/15/09; over three years old. Pours opaque black with no head, only a small ring of big-bubbly foam. Aroma consists of overripe dark fruit, mocha, smoke, tobacco, leather, licorice. Taste is sweet, smoky and nutty with a slightly tart finish. Licorice and tar are prominent in flavor. Wow...yum. Carbonation is soft, mouthfeel is oily. Delicious, ugly, complex....what an experience.

11.2oz bottle, thanks to Jay. Batch 15. Best before 9/08/10. Definitely a big whiskey barrel aroma in the nose, with a good smoked note. Roasty malt aroma, but less than youíd find in most imperial stouts, and more whiskey big woody flavor. Light dark-chocolate, coffee. Vanilla. Very, very light carbonation. Almost flat. Only a medium body, not really as chewy as I expected it to be, but creamy for sure. Rich, sweeter taste, some bitter, with an alcohol/whiskey buzz on the tongue through the finish and long into the aftertaste. Kind of chemically, though you know it isnít actually. Color is dark but not opaque; clear brown on the edges. Very, very little khaki head, leaving dots of lace. Likely past itís prime, but although itís kind of abusive itís still very tasty; an enjoyable interesting experience.
