4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Big, black, sticky sweet. Smells of chocolate, whisky, and vanilla. Not much booze on the palate. If you can afford it, go for it..

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 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... :-)

Bottle from brewdog.com. Almost black color with huge beige head. Peated whiskey in aroma together with notes of caramel and chocolate. Taste, sweet roaste malt, milk coffee, dates, prunes, wood, peat, whiskey. Full bodied beer. Strong bittersweet alcoholic (whiskey) finish with notes of wood. Extremely tasty beer, I am glad, that I have one more bottle.

Bottle 46. Forgotten or intended? Doesn’t matter, the result is close to perfect. My second favourite stout after speedway so far. Doesn’t poor as thick and oily as other imperial stouts but has all the depth and complexity of one, new aromas pealing out once you let it warm up to room temperature. Quite highly carbonated but not much head even so. There is the cherry sweetness of the regular Tokyo combined with the strong earthyness, turf and sulfur of the whiskey barrel. Chocolate in the background.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2012 Bottle #763. Aroma from a distance is chocolate and malty caramel. The peaty highland cask comes through upon closer inspection. Taste starts very sweet, then peaty and oak. Taste has chocolate and caramel written all over it, also noticeable are berries. The higher alcohols in the taste (and nose) might be this beer’s main drawback. Aftertaste is dominated by a somewhat dry, woody and smokey finish. All in all a very nice stout.
