4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Complex aroma of dark dried fruits, tar and smoke. The taste is also complex with similar flavours with some chocolate in the background. A little bitter, maybe from the wood?

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
