Black with minimal head. Aroma is raisins, dates, liquorice, smoke, leather, wood, chocolate, hint of blackcurrant. Very smooth on the palate, oily mouthfeel, lots of complexity. Taste is raisins, dates, liquorice, chocolate, caramel. Delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 26508, bottled jan 2009. Deep black, dissipatgng head which settles into a tonsure. Dark chocolate on wood, light vanilla, a hint madeira, but certainly not oxidized much. Silky and round on the palate, medium chewyness, relatively dry on the finish. Full chocolate, licorice, salt, a hint wood, otherwise the whiskey asserts itself and blends wonderfully into the stout flavors. Licorice, light herbal aftertaste, whiskey aromatics retronasal. Perfect time to enjoy this one I think.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 25631. Dark, almost black. Has an off-white head, lasting. Aroma is dark too, roasted malts, old wood, faint-faint vanilla, medicine and peated smoke. Perhaps salt. Flavor starts sweet, more peated malt, faint acid and moderate bitter finish. Faint chocolate and coffee. Creamy texture. Perhaps a bit too thin a beer for this, if we should above 4.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4 year old bottle shared by Eric. Thanks bro. Pours deep dark brown with a small brown head. The nose is vanilla, chocolate, booze, light smoke and some hints of wet grass. The taste is lightly sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Something off about it though. Perhaps a little oxidation. The textture is creamy with bits of pop. The body is medium and the finish is long. All in all I don’t think it should have gone 4 years. Would try it at one and two to see what the changes were.
