2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber brown with thin off white head. The aroma consists of smoke, lots of peats, burnt wood and some tar. Taste is malt, caramel, smokey, slight antiseptic/dentist character (like Laphroig whisky). Works as an avec after a heavy dinner. Tastes more like an Islay whiskey than a beer. I’m kinda baffeled that so much Islay whisky character can come from 8 months of storage in whiskey barrels. The malt must be smoked from burnt peat.

Bitch Please foam is poor and offers lots of fruity aroma. Strong fruity and winey taste the plum, raisin, peach, prunes and sweet sherry tones unite really nice. There is absolutely no hop track and it is a very elegant and delicate barley wine.

Bottle, batch 96. The pour is a muddy hazel color, looks like river water. The aroma is off, can get the whiskey for sure, also get notes of charcoal. The taste is kinda harsh. Carries that charcoal aroma over to the taste which is not a good thing. Was expecting more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle with Guinn and Pete at Guinn’s house. Pours a light brown golden with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet candy, smokey peat, and some maltiness and a floral perfume. Weird. Flavor follows and is odd. Not very pleasant. Some alcohol. Not clearly beer flavors in this. Muddled. Too much going on. But interesting. Bottle picked up at Brewdog Bristol in the summer 2013.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours reddish brown brackish with a thin head. Smells like swamp water with a touch of scotch. First taste is bold and shocking to the palate. It's layered with malts, scotch, heavy peat and a long smoky finish. A weird one timer
