3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden color with small head. Aroma is smoke. Flavor is malt, smoke, reminds me smoky whiskies. Ok for "smoke beer"

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Laphroaig. Pours a dark golden brown colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel and Weetabix malt before the iodine, smoky peat and alcohol of Laphroaig quarter cask. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Nice and dry if a little thin for the abv. Lovely lingering Laphroaig oak and smoke with caramel again.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
3 July 2012, bottle. Med copper color, clear, no bubbles. Malty ale background with lots of laphroaig smokiness dominating. Med body and faintly fizzy. Robust ale for British beer with lots of earthy smokiness. Actually tastes like laphroaig, not just like smoked beer (contrary to their bowmore ale).
