3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2013 Bottle. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Aroma is peat, roasted malt, soy sauce and a touch of chocolate. Taste is very boozy. Scotch is prominent and some sweetness on the finish. Mouthfeel is a touch light for the style and has a strong carb. Pretty unique. The scotch is really a nice touch. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from sheffield tap. Pours like dark brown oil with a short lived tan head. Aroma is peaty smoky whisky, oaky wood and soy. Taste is sweet and spicy with alcohol, finishes with an ashy dry bitterness that makes you immediately want another sip. Thick and oily with subtle carbonation. Probably the best beer Iíve ever tasted.
