olio (7424) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Timo A. Bottled. 28.02.2012. BBE +25 years.
Pours pitch black color with a medium beige head. Aroma of some port wine, dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, some wooden notes, bourbon, hints of vanilla and peat. Flavor of dark chocolate, ash, cocoa powder, bourbon, some red wine notes, hints of coffee, dark berry notes and peat. Very rich and complex brew with a nice appealing aroma, sadly the alcohol comes through a bit too much. Still very good.

Ibrew2or3 (7411) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2012
33cl bottle pours mahogany with mocha like head of foam. The aroma offers up molasses, dark roasted malts, some spicy wood like notes and then vague soft barrel notes. The taste begins with roasted malts, dark roasted malts and some chocolate. It then moves into almost peaty like booze and spicy wood. Overall the mouthfeel is on the thin side and the taste lingers with mild spicy wood notes and fading roasted maltiness.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Timo A. Bottled 28.02.2012, BBE 28.02.2037
Aroma is sweetish with lots of peat, some whisky and oaky notes. Flavour is sweet and rather strong on whisky notes. Some peat and woody notes too. Foamy and somewhat creamy palate. Too sweet and too strong on whisky.

douglas88 (7177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2013
12 ounce bottle thanks to Dylan. Looked really rough, but has held up. Pours a pure jet black color with a medium brown head. A pine and hop nose with astringency and whisky. The flavor is a big cocoa and roast, again more pine, the whisky really melts into a similar earthy and bitter flavor, very smooth. Finishes with earthy chocolates. Very solid. Easy despite the ABV.

Pours a pitch black colour with a beautiful beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, Speyside whiskey, sweet toffee and ash. Flavour of roasted malts, smoked wood, Speyside whiskey again, raisins, caramel and low bitterness. Rich mouthfeel and good carbonation. Very rich finish with roasted malts, dark fruits and some tanginess. Very smooth and exceptional without being overly extreme.
