March 17, 2013; 7.4% abv, 650 mL, tulip Nice dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Some cherry tartness cuts through the roasted flavours. Whiskey malts and vanilla also make it in there. Dark used motor oil colour with deep tan head of about 1 inch. Shrinks down pretty fast but leacves nice lace. Roast chocolate and coffee dominate with some light acidity. Booze kicks in with nice sweet whiskey flavours - nutmeg, smoke, sweet jerky, vanilla, other spices of some sort. Smooth milky mouthfeel and sharp carbonation lets your swirl this in your mouth a bit. This is surprisingly good. The sweetness, booze, and whiskey flavours makes this pretty enjoyable.

ChadPolenz (1690) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 33A Wood-Aged Beer (base style: 16C Tropical Stout)

AROMA: Sweet dark malt and fruits; whiskey note in the background. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Dark brown to black; fairly clear with no highlights. Small, tan, soapy head mostly evaporates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Quite sweet with smooth dark grain flavors and restrained bitterness. Some cola-like taste and sweetness. Slightly chocolaty. Whiskey-soaked oak chips impart only faint flavor and mostly on the end. Some toffee notes as well. No hop presence. 16/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied with low carbonation and watery texture. Very smooth with clean aftertaste; no alcohol presence. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: As a stout it’s pretty good, but the wood aging doesn’t do much for it. Sweet for a stout (but not cloying). 7/10

chinchill (4270) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 7, 2016
330 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Stirling, Scotland. Wood and whisky notes compose the aroma and are a little more prominent in the flavor than is the base Scottish stout. Too sweet. Decent aftertaste. Good tan head. Overall: disappointing.

Nagy, tartós, bézs színű hab, egészen sötétbarna szín. Feketecsokis, pörkölt malátás illat, némi hordós, whisky-s aromával kiegészülve. Édes, feketecsokis, whiskey-s, enyhén hordós ízvilág. Testes, enyhén szénsavas, finom desszertsör.
