4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From notes: Poured a deep, opaque black, with a 1-finger dark tan head and moderate bubbling along the wall of the glass. Aroma is woody with a nice roasty note, and maybe a touch of leather as well. Full body with a pleasant thickness. Long finish with a touch of booziness that I would expect to mellow with aging. Nice woody flavor with a light note of caramel, and a pleasant amount of char from the barrel and some leathery notes as well. Very good now, and I would expect it to become better with age.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.16 ounce bottle, bottle #00678, April 13. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like Scotch whisky, peat, dark fruit, dark chocolate, vanilla, and some tobacco. It tastes like roasted malt, Scotch Whisky, peat, vanilla, dark fruit, wood chocolate and smoke. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís slick and smooth with low/moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty tasty brew, I liked it. Itís pricey at $15.99 a bottle, but if you like Scotch Whisky barrel aged brews then you should definitely pick this one up. That and pretty much any Ola Dubh beer will be a good one!

Heavy aroma of raisins, oak and tar. A little sweetness, very light taste anyway. Very good taste of oak with a long and good taste of dark, strong coffee. I really liked the aftertaste. Surprisingly easy to drink for being so strong. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
