4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mar 2015 - 330ml bottled Sep 2012 at 15.2%, red wax. Thick, oily pour. Pitch black with no head. Aroma is sweet with whisky smoke, some booze, vegetable stock. Body is medium, smooth, touch of carbonation. Taste is semisweet, rounded molasses-like malt, some smokey whisky, warming booze, soft understated peat, salty finish, enduring whisky mustiness. A bit on the sweet side for my taste, but a very nice flavour nonetheless. Drinking well, but could potentially improve for a couple more years.

Bottled. 7sept 2012. The aroma has moderate peat, roast, chocolate. Black coloured beer with a thin and diminishing, beige head.
