Black and dark. Very strong aroma and taste, with some elements of coffee, roasted malt, coffee. However, the main note resembles some kind of medicine making the beer very specific and not for me

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Zythos Treviso 2015. Ramata, quasi marrone, velata, con schiuma beige finissima e persistente. Aroma molto intenso, tostato, torbato, cacao amaro, legno, alcolico di frutta rossa sotto spirito, amarene e ciliege. Incredibilmente complesso. Zucchero di canna sembra presente. Dolce amabile, poi amara da tostatura, torbata, e legnosa. Calda, rotonda, poco carbonata e poco corposa, di consistenza quasi oleosa. Equilibrata ed armonica

Wow, amazing Scotch whisky aroma - have never had this in a beer before. All the smoke and essence of Islay comes through. Pour is pretty good - dark brown with light tan head. On flavor, I want to like this more than I do. I feel like there’s a hole in the middle of the flavor profile somehow. That said, still pretty good, and the Scotch side counts for a lot in this one. Definitely unique.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. #15408. A slow gusher, pouring an almost clear body, amber in color and with a dense, fingerthick light beige colored head. Lacings. The aroma has quite a lot of peat, with dried fruits and a roasted touch. Some chocolate notes. There’s a pleasant bitterness in the flavor, dealing easily with the malty sweetness. Peat, dried figs and a peated, roasted maltyness in the flavor. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Some warmth. Lasting finish with lots of peat. A nice one indeed, tasteful too, but I prefer the regular edition. Might be because I’m not very fond of peat, but I don’t think so as I normally prefer the regular edition. 141228
