Sehr dunkelbraunes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, holzig, dunkle reife Früchte, Vanille, so ist auch der Geschmack.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Drinkmonger. Pours jet black, no head. Aromas of single malt whisky, coffee, chocolate, tar, leather. Taste is sweet chocolate notes, light whisky,light coffee bitterness, sweet finish. Medium body, in fact, I reckon upping the abv a couple of notches would improve this, making it richer in the mouthfeel. Still, a damn fine beer .

Whoa; another masterpiece in this line. Love it. Thick, sultry, and luscious. Body is a touch on the soft side, but I can’t help but think it fits perfectly here. The tinges of whisky and peat meld seamlessly with the palate and other dark flavors. In spite of its richness, could see having another. Finish is much easier and cleaner than I expected. Sumptuous beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is nutty and smoky. The malt contributions aee deep and rich; some chocolate and caramel flavors come through. Very roasty and the palate is very chewy. The faint whiskey notes appear at the very end. The head is beige and very thin but retains reasonably. Very well made beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Trembling Madness, York. Pours black with a fading tan head. Notes of chocolate, smoke, peat and a boozy finish. Initially seems a bit dominated by the whiskey flavours, but as it goes down i found it more enjoyable with the beer character coming through. Good.
