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

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.

26th January 2010
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.

Bottle number 08786, Sept 2007 bottle date. Fantastic. Wonderful whisky aroma and flavors of peat and dirt and earthy roastiness. Greatly hides the abv. Very smooth. Awesome.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
[cask at Holyrood 9A, Edinburgh] Beer pours a deep, limpid black with a beige head. Sweet, syrupy whisky aroma. Flavour of oaky whisky, roasted chocolate malt, and caramel. Alcohol warmth comes through on the finish. There’s some milky chocolate in the aftertaste, before the whisky heat arrives and begins to dominate

On cask at The Holyrood 9A. Pours a very dark brown colour with no head. A huge whiskey aroma upfront. The Highland Park 12 year old malt is very prominent with honey, plums, raisin and alcohol and a little roasty malt and chocolate also. Similar flavours with whiskey upfront again. Mild carbonation and a nice woody, coconut finish.
