Dark brown with a small off-white head. Bowmore dominates the aroma with weaker notes of fruit and malt. Sweet and fruity flavour with over-powering Bowmore character and some alcohol.

Clear mahogany with a small beige head. Smoked aroma with hard roasted malt, hops, wood and coffee. Very dry flavor with hard roasted malt, plenty of hops, smoke from the peated malt, liquerice, whiskey, and espresso. Finished dry, bitter and smoked. What a lovely blend. Seriously love it. Perfect mans beer!

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a clear orangey brown with a small beige head. The nose has some peat and iodine. Solid body, some hard roast malts and ashes, quite peaty with a rather bitter finish - but the distinct hoppiness from the Triple IPA part is pretty much drowned in the Bowmore barrel. A man beer indeed! Not exactly your everyday Black & Tan... 171110

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks very kindly to Edo.Deep dark red brown colour with a thin but lasting beige head. This is excellent stuff all round. These guys continue to get better each time I try something from them. A good bitter fronted base beer with an assertive Islay whisky character. Excellent salt and seaweed with a hint of coffee and crisp hops. Excellent bitter and slightly sour finish. Just a tiny bit thin but it still feels enjoyably creamy. Excellent beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nearly no head over deepbrown beer. Restrained, but very promising C-hops nose, with grapefruit and lytchee, rosewater. Aroma of steamed jasmine rice, and just a hint at whisky and alcohol. Peat, grapefruit-flavoured hops, liquorice, wood and orangemarmalade with near all the sweetness knocked out. Again this jasmine - this time like jasmine tea. Alcohol comes out in the aftertaste, whilst the whisky(barrel) flavours are even more in retard mode, but keep lingering around in the joris’ oral cavity. Exotic spices to crown it all. Long lasting aftertaste, medium to well-bodied, alcoholwarming to some extent. Maybe their best so far. I’m impressed and intrigued by the jasmine.
