3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Pours a dark but translucent brown with a small foamy brown head. Smells rich and fruity. From this bear i would expect more of that oaken caramel smell. Has a fruity raisen like taste with that very modest sour taste i have come to know from several Scottish beers. Just like the smell their isnt quit enough oak and caramel taste to meet my expectations. Overall a very good beer but not as good as the ratings suggest.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Teku glass. Pitch black with minimal, light brown head. Poor lacing and head retention. Intense aroma of dark fruits - pulms and rasins, in the second raw vanilla aroma. Also medium woody, peated and smokey notes. The smell is really complex, rich and fresh. Taste is rather sweet with slightly bitter and salty notes. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is semi-sweet with little alcohol warming. In overall rich and comples beer. Perfectly balanced and highly drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown with a shortlived tan head. Aromas of sweet roasted malts and whisky. Tastes chocolate, dried fruit, bitter coffee, with quite a pronounced peat aftertaste. I’d almost think I’d been drinking whisky actually. My only complaint is that it’s a bit thin...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Totalmente negra, espuma de boa formação e persistência, muito bonita. Aroma achocolatado, defumado, amadeirado, bala de café. No paladar transparece mais café do que chocolate, médio amargor e dulçor, altas doses de malte. Corpo licoroso, carbonatação quase inexistente. Aftertaste alcoólico, persistente, adocicado, malte torrado. Um pouco mais complexa do que a 16, mas difícil de distinguir entre as duas. Uma ótima cerveja.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - pours black with a very dark brown fizzy head which quickly fades to a ring. Aroma of peaty whisky, a little antiseptic, some smoke and hints of cocoa. Taste of peat, smoke, cocoa and earthy malts with some vanilla and paprika. Medium body, medium carbonation.
A tasty treat, but the body is a little thin which lets it down a little.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0.33 bottle. Insanely dark brown color, (recognizable from black due to light diffraction on the edges), and a medium, brownish head. Strong aroma of roast, dark malts, chocolate, wood, and a sting of whiskey. Taste is very malty, fantastically smoky, prominently chocolaty, and wonderfully balanced. Medium to full body, veritably thick texture, and flat carbonation. Finish is a tad fruitier but also more whiskey-induced. Overall a splendid beer, inherently smacking of high quality whiskey but at the same time at no point is it alcoholic or irritating; certainly worthy of a wholehearted recommendation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Man riecht den Scotch, das Eichefass, leichte Erikahonignoten, Vanille, ganz wenig Schoggi, Trockenpflaumen. Spritzig-cremig im Mund, ganz leicht sÃ¤uerlich kommen die obigen Aromen wieder. Leicht bitter und trocken gegen schluss, bleibt auch etwas sÃ¼sse. Sehr ausgewogen und sÃ¼ffig! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
