4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, bought @ Some Whisky-shop in Edinburgh.
Pours almost all-black with a great, creamy, cappucino head. Nice, elegant aroma. Whiskey, light smoke, chocolate, roasted malts and a touch of coffee. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is really good. Lots of whiskey character, light smokiness. Fat chocolate, light roasted. Really wonderful wood character in the finish. Impressively balanced. Wonderful.

Pours black with a decent creamy tan head. Really nice aroma of dark malt and scotch whiskey. Peaty is the word. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Warm. Dark toasted malt - but very smooth. Very subtle heat and peat flavors. Gets very smoky/peaty in the finish. Good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle #54922 from Party Town.
Poured black color with a minimal brown creamy head that mostly diminished with good lacing. Heavy aroma of caramel, woody and toasted malt. Medium to full body with smooth texture and flat carbonation . Same as the other two, medium to heavy dark woody bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy smoked sweet whiskey finish of moderate duration.
My expectations were met with a complex smooth brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2012 Bottle. Pours deep black with a sturdy beige head. Plenty of alcohol in the aroma, some whiskey, some roasted malts. Big flavor, some chocolate, peat, vanilla, smoke. Medium bodied with modest carbonation, a bit oily. Lingering smokiness. A rather complex brew that will certainly appeal to those who like the flavor of whiskey.
