3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled @ SBWF on September 29. Pours amber with no head. Very viscous. Smell is sweet and malty with a smoked feel to it. Reminds me of the smell of an Islay Whisky. Taste is very sweet and sticky with honey, oak, peat and some smoke. Aftertaste is rather dry and pleasant. Very intense and nice but perhaps a bit too sweet.
