3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks to Jeffo. 11/18/2012. Pours deep brown, practically black, with thin oily beige head and viscous lacing. Aroma hits right off with big peat and smoked dark malts, nice undercurrent of cocoa powder,caramel and vanilla, oak. Taste is sweet, roasted chocolate malts, dark fruits, light peat,salty, and smoke, whiskey on the breath, bitter roast finish. Moderate body, but light for the style. Nice, some balance to offset the barrel treatment, but perhaps a bit thin.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle @ home. Opaque, almost black color with a slight red glow coming through when held into the light, no real head, just a small beige to light brown lacing on top. Smell malts, alcohol, medicin and I guess laphroaig barrel aging. Taste malts, not nearly as much peat as I had feared, alcohol, a bit roastyness, clearly barrel aged though, a slight touch of sweetness but a bitter finish. Full body, low carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at BBF. Pour was deep brown, almost black. Notes of heavy peat, roast, smoked malts, figs, chocolate, raspberries, and candy sugars. Medium bodied with a small amount of carb. Enjoyable but a little too much roasted almond peat in the taste for me.
