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.

Pours a dark brown with chestnut highlights, small off white head that disappears and decent lacing. Aroma is savory and peaty with smoke, mild roast and licorice. Taste is peaty, roasty and smokey with some tobacco and a malty sweetness along with some savoriness. Finishes dry with some roasty bitter. Mouthfeel is light/ medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Nice balanced whiskey flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black, with a very small brown head that fades in a flash. Aroma of peaty scotch, toffee, licorice, roast, and molasses. Taste is rich, but not too sweet, and full of roasty and peaty whisky flavor with some bitter dark chocolate and woody flavors as well. Full bodied, oily, smooth, almost no carbonation, and just a little tingly from the booze. Decadent; I love it. Bottle 02790

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hearty, near black body with a low brown head. Heaps of peaty whiskey with equal measure of thick sweet malts, raisins and chocolate and wood. This would be a really fun series to do a vertical with. Really nice brew.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
After moving. Bottle number 6!! Bottled in April.
Huge whiskey note on the nose. A little roasty. A little mossy musty note.
Appearance is very dark brown.
Taste is very balanced. Roasty chocolate notes. Big whiskey note.
Palate is smooth. A little too much carbonation maybe.
This is a really good beer but it’s almost too much. The whiskey works well with the porter since it’s a little lighter. Maybe not worth the money but pretty cool to check out if you get a chance.
