3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pitch black and a generous pour creates a small dissipating beige head. Strong peat in the nose. Flavor has peat, iodine, charcoal, light sweet chocolate, light roasted notes, alcohol warmth. Full body, nice creamy texture. This is heavy peated which I usually don’t care much for, but the texture is very nice and if I ever happen to be in the mood for something peated, this would make a good choice.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 33cl. Filled up to the brim of the bottle. Pitch black with a nicely remaining smallish deep beige head. The nose blew me away- leather, peat, heather, dark chocolate, tar and light band-aid showing up- Bunnahabhain accented without any doubt. Complex and sublime. The single malt treatment reveals to give this Imperial Stout a great new signature to my tastes. Some residual sugars in the briny peaty minty finish. Underrated in my opinion. Excellent.
