Dark murky brown, thin ringed head. Nose is creamy earthy spice, thin sweetness and vibrant smoke. Initial taste is rusty, sticky sweet then a big of burnt plaster. Softer carbonation than the others and mouthfeel is less sticky. Finishes a decent strum of peppery smoke and lingers long berry sweetness. Pretty gid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ardbeg version. Strong Peat aroma, as well as bbq style smoke, medical tape, burnt malts. Special and I like it better than I usually do such beers. String smoked malt flavour, betadine, medium bitter. Heavy stuff, little alcohol. Does get a bit thin but itís so well made that I still enjoyed this, while I usually donít like too much Peat or whiskey! (65cl bottle from QV.ID, shared with Paul, who didnít like it much)

660 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 5/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy very dark brown color with a 2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge raisin, plum, fig, date, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, cocoa, peat smoke, dark bread, toasted oak, leather, vanilla, pepper, light nuttiness, and oak/toasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and scotch barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of huge raisin, plum, fig, date, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, peat smoke, cocoa, dark bread, toasted oak, leather, vanilla, pepper, brine, light nuttiness, and oak/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of yeast/oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes if raisin, plum, fig, date, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, peat smoke, cocoa, leather, pepper, brine, and oak/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and scotch barrel flavors; with a great malt/oak/spiciness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/saline, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic scotch barrel aged Belgian strong dark ale. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and scotch barrel flavors; and very smooth and easy to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
