4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a thin but lasting brown head. Strong aroma of malt, sweet. Taste: Very malt, notes of caramel, chocolate, very roasty, without being ’burnt’, and with notes of oak, sweet, with a full-bodied warming mouthfeel. Finishes with a sweet malty tastes, a little bit of a herb hop bitterness. Very very complex, with more taste notes emerging as it warms. Highly reccomended!

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at an Ola Dubh vertical. Pours a very dark brown color. Nose is a bit muted compared to the others in the series, though you still get the peatiness with some subtle scotch and roasting. Taste is very smooth, with chocolate, caramel, and slight wood elements to it. Nice. Favorite in the series.

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.
