4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
another winner in this series. best of the bunch. i’m between a 4.4 and a 4.5, but will go low til i have it again...and i will have it again. smokey peet almost undetectable at first, but as it warms, whiskey booziness takes over from the super chocolate, malty, robust goodness, and manages to do so without the slightest hint of heat or alcohol. well done! 7/11 - 2nd times a charm...still the best in the line."

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Garrafa numerada 27328. Safra de agosto de 2010.
Aroma intenso. Perceptível a distância. Adocicado. Pão. Malte. Álcool. Madeira. Caramelo. Frutas vermelhas. O Beltramelli falou em iodo... É possível sim... Fato é que, esta é, indubitavelmente, uma cerveja rica em aromas.
Creme castanho, bolhas pequenas. Persistente até o fim como uma fina camada.
Coloração castanha escura. Opaca.
Complexa nos sabores. Final café, presunto defumado e um calor alcoólico. Início madeira, lúpulo, álcool bem inserido, quase licorosa.
Retrogosto persistente, muito ao estilo de um whisky.

Had these in a flight of Old engine oil, 12,16,30,40. I found this one to be drier than the 30 year old, with an aroma that is more fruit cake like and overall more balanced. It is the smoother beer and there is peatness there but I did find the 30 yr old to be more exiting.
