3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   More roastiness, less ash and peat.   More iodine for sure.   Body seems to thin out a bit, but its not thin.   A little warming.   More scotch like than all the rest, soft peat lingers.   Still good.   Thanks Matt!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A dark cola brown with little to no head. Smells of mollasses, venison, soy, cheese, chocolate, scotch. Taste is sweet chocolate, scotch alcohol notes, brown sugar, some hop bitter at the end, some roasted flavors and a little smokiness. Great complex beer, sweeter than I expected, mouthfeel is a little thin.

2013 bottle. Pours a deep, dark mahogany brown. Very little khaki head. Aroma is very peaty with molasses, smoke and a hint of licorice. Taste is the same with a tobacco roast and smoke and a sweetness that I can't quit identify, except for possibly the malt. Savory. A medium full mouthfeel.
