4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours pitch black with a small beige head and an aroma of mainly whiskey, with notes of peat, wet wood, syrup, heavy malts and thin cigar smoke. The taste is not too sweet nor too alcoholic, just a nice blend for a beer this strong. There’s heavu roasted malts, smoke, some whiskey and a nice medium-long bitter finish. I really like this.
