3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased from Brewdog Online Store, drunk alongside a Tokyo*. Comparatively thinner with less of a full-on ’punch’ of flavour in the beginning, but offering a much more exciting lingering flavour. Peaty smoke and a real smoothness on display. Quite an exciting beer, but at £25 a pop not an experience I’ll be having often.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured pitch-black color stout with a large dark brown foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate with dominant notes of scotch is quite sublime. Taste is a great mix between some powder cacao and some residuals sugar notes with some dominant notes of scotch which rounded some of the rough edge. Body is quite full with somewhat of an oily texture and medium carbonation with no warming alcohol notes. This is an extreme beer for sure but some balanced was retained and barrel-aging treatment is excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ SlackerMads. Pours black with a tan creamy small head. Aroma is quite heavily peated, very very sweet, sugary, toasted, burnt, fruit, roasted malt, licorice is heavy sweet, moderate bitter and salt. Body is full, texture is sticky/viscous, carbonation is soft. Finish is very long sweet and peated. This is is rather crazy concoction and simply way too sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bottled on 2012-05-26. Pitch black with a medium sized quickly diminishing lightly lacing head. Nose is very peaty with some sweet chocolate in the background. Taste is sticky sweet with some bitterness not really punching through. Peat, burnt sugar, the peat is present all the way through. In the middle of the taste the peat is somewhat in the background with sweeter candy/brown sugar notes coming forward, yet the peat is there in the there waiting and rolling in in the finish. Sugary sweet finish with lingering peat. Too much peat and sugary sweetness for my taste.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is epic. 4 years on casks leave an overwhelming deep sensation in the beer. It is full bodied, malty, woody and definitely the most defined cask aged beer I ever had. If you haven’t tried this bee sad... :-)

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2013 330ml bottle (Bottle #1985). Pours a deep rich black color with a thin mocha tan head that leaves lots of oily lacing. Aroma of peat, smoke, woody oak and whiskey, over a more subtle roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste has big smokiness that hits the palate first, followed by syrupy sweetness and huge whisky notes. Finish is chocolate and coffee. Everything is surprisingly soft and never too boozy. Full bodied with a thick coating mouthfeel and light carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a pitch black with minute head that quickly disappears. Aroma is full of the whiskey! A heavy whiskey smell to begin with, but I also get some chocolate and burnt malts. Taste is much like the smell with the whiskey dominating leaving a lingering warmness. Enjoyed this one more than I thought I would have.
