jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle, thanks to Jeffo, 03/29/2012. The bottle is filled to the brim and pours thick black, almost no head but decent lacing rings the glass, persistent haze on the surface. In the aroma, dark bitter cocoa chocolate fudge with great depth, espresso roast, and rounded with a spicy whiskey spiciness that compliments well. Flavor is big on chocolate, a bit lighter than the aroma with a touch of vanilla, not overly sweet, balanced by espresso roast, mild caramel and whiskey bitterness. Palate is low on carbonation but full and smooth without becoming overly thick. The barrel treatment adds nice subtle accents to the base, does not overpower, resulting in an elegant, balanced treatment of H&V. Really nice.

wlajwl (4053) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Strong infusion of peat/scotch/scotch ale in aroma and flavor. Pretty good, the sweetness wasn’t overpowering and the scotch elements complemented the stout pretty well.
