4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A black beer with a quite big, beautiful and dark brown head. Aroma is strong and nice, roastiness, black coffee, chocolate, some liquirice and vanilla. A powerful taste, lots of liquirice and roastiness, coffee, enough of bitterness that are herbal, quite lot of sweetness but it’s balanced with other nuancees some whisky barrel in the aftertaste. Full bodied, smooth and nice to drink. Good and balanced IS, also slightly impersonal and the whisky barrel is too hidden; quite sweet, powerfull, liquirice and roasted.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big thanks to Matt for hauling this one back from Amsterdam. Pours black, with a large medium-tan head. Honey and oak from the scotch are apparent right in the aroma. Coffee, chocolate, and dark roasted malts also apparent. Nice and dry. Flavor follows. Effervescent for how big it is, and on the boozy side. Lots of development in the flavor -- even a slightly tart (lactic? chardonnay?) note in the middle, with more coffee on the back side. A little bit of smoked meat, too. Really nice,
