nuts, chocolate, soy sauce, clove aromas, pitch black body with a thin white head. salty, lightly bitter, light sweetness, a bit smokey in the aftertaste, i just keep thinking soy sauce. not really worth the price tag.

Not nearly as boozy as I thought it was going to be, tasted more like a water BA stout than anything else. Nice but not worth the price tag.

Bottle at home. Pours black, kind of like engine oil funnily enough, thin quickly fading dark brown head. Awesome aroma of whiskey, chocolate, dark fruit. Flavour is whiskey, nicely smoked which fades in the finish, chocolate, nuts, roasted malts, vanilla. Smooth palate. Like this a lot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Really opened up with temperature. The barrel and scotch flavors were hard to spot but opened up later. As a new scotch drinker, I appreciate those notes. It seems this is more of a porter than a stout, and unfortunately, I feel that porters are just worse stouts. Chocolatey nose Licorice sweetness, no roast, and a slightly spicy mouthfeel despite no carbonation or head, which was pretty cool. Dark as night color.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33L bottle, BB 12.2015. Pours very dark brown with brown head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast, vanilla, and oak. Taste: malt, smoke, sweetness, wood, and dark chocolate. Finish is smoke bitterness and some alcohol burn. Overall: very nice brew, less sweet than 12 year old; very drinkable for ABV.

11.2 oz bottle. Aroma is booze and a sweet dark malt. Appearance is black. Taste is a dark stout with some bourbon mixed in. Palate is smooth for a bourbon barreled stout. Overall, a good, even aged stout. Pretty thin, though.
