4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle #25045, Bottled on July 2009, Tasting March 2013. Pours a caramel meringue head that quickly dissapates to thin oily sheet with small ring. Black Brown clear color. Swirling aroma of vanilla, Toffee, light roasted coffee. Old Humidor even. Slick and Oily with Alcohol on the edges not to direct, slightly salty at the start with sweet filler throughout. This beer has a long pleasent finish I hope to experiance again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown, clear, with about a thumb of tan head. Aroma of whisky barrel, light peat, roasted malt, brown sugar and figs. Taste is boozy sweet with almost a port like character at first before a distinct whisky finish. Somewhat abrupt finish. Medium bodied and creamy with fairly low carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2013 Black with no head or carbonation. It has somewhat of a sterile aroma with vanilla and chocolate port. Great complexity. The first layer has a rich and warm texture that pops with notes of creme brulee brandy, and Turkish coffee. The second coats your tongue with a nice layer of fudge and tootsie roll. Nice roasted caramel finish. Yum

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is slightly malty. Opaque brown. Taste isn't great to me, it reminds me of a cigarette. Abrupt finish. Not fantastic but ok.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma reminds me of a nitrogen carbonation, but has a nice edge of Carmel and slight smoke. Has a small head with off white carbonation, with an oily looking surface. Taste is smoky and Carmel filled, but falls off quickly.

On tap somwhere! Opaque black beer. A little glue in the light malt nose but nothing too off putting. Softish palate. Rich dark malt, something sour. A little wood. Very warning finish. A little minerals and coffee coming through. Perfect beer on a bitterly cold day, which today happens to be.

Cask at Holyrood 9A. Deep black, thin but persistent beige head. Smooth chocolate and whiske nose, hint of liquorice. Palate is thick and incredibly smooth, massive liquorice, dark chocolate and a big whisky hit. Finish is huge whisky, dry roast malts and more liquorice. I like this a lot.
