Black pour with surprisingly decent one finger brown head. Indistinguishable in appearance from the others sampled at the same time. All had the same basic notes of licorice, tar, tabacco, and leather. This one was significantly peatier than the other ones. Very smokey earthy finish. Interesting, but not my cup of tea.

Pitch black pour with a very nice head and visible carbonation. Heavy smell of peat, with some cocoa and dark chocolate. Peat and smoke in the taste, on top of a very sweet malty backbone - too sweet for my taste. Not much complexion aside from that. Drinkable beer, but the taste is a let down, but I have never liked peated beers too much.

It pours black with a dark brown head which is tightly packed and small. It has aromas of whiskey, nutty, dried fruit, and vinous, It has a smokey malt flavor with whiskey and nut flavors. There are also flavors of dried fruit and a vinous characteristic. The roasted malts are the most prominent in the beginning rounding out with whiskey and dried fruit in the middle with the vinous coming towards the end. The whiskey flavors compliment the malts without being overly dominate. It has a moderately high feel to it with a bitter finish.
