Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma has a good complexity with cocoa, raisins, figs, nice caramel fudgy thing gong with vanilla hints, chocolate and roast. Very nice aroma indeed. Taste is nice and roasted, caramel, chocolate and cocoa, hints of wood, more whisky impressions than the aroma with a smoky touch, also vanilla and dark fruits and the finish showcases a bit of the chili with a warming sensation on the tongue. Better than the bourbon version, but the brandy cocoa vanilla version still takes it all the way to the bank. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Loved the unbarreled version... if anything this needs to go in bourbon or just plain oak barrels. The peat finish and the oxidation/soy character seem to be a bit at odds with the beauty of this beer with less age on it. Still love that Mikkel nailed the heat of the peppers, really magnificent but not my fav of the bunch.

Bottle thanks to 17thfloor for sharing. Pours black with a small creamy mocha head. Aroma is rich sweet chocolate, some bitter cocoa and a little smokiness with the light chipotle and oaky wood notes. Flavor starts with a strong woody oak and earthy character, quickly picking up the roasty espresso, chocolate and ashy character, some of the chipotle comes out through the finish which retains the woody quality. Medium full body and a soft carbonation. Pretty tasty beer,

JorisPPattyn (8224) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2011
Pours viscously to a jet-black beer with an ultra-dark beige head; oozing spirit and old barn aromas; antique dealers and maltwhisky-sipping customers. Rich... coffeebeans and black chocolate. Dry, very roasted and heating immediately up after swallowing. Vanilla, coffee and cacao, roasted and sweet (-alcoholic). Very onctuous, thick creamy and alcoholwarming. The hot feeling - immediately upon tasting - however, registers as chili only after a considerable time. Undeniably good, but I’m developping a déjà-goûté feeling. And with a Speyside, I’d somehow expected more fireworks.

Bottle from City Beer. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head and a treacle and whiskey aroma. There is a dry chocolate and treacle flavor with a warm peppery alcohol finish. Lots of scotch in this one.

Bottle. Black fine head. Smoky honey aromas. Wiskey chocolate flavours. Taste a lot stronger due to the barrel storage. Gentle complex super brew.

Excellent, dark pour for the style with a nearly black body and a full, dense, creamy, dark tan head which is very nearly fully lasting and leaves thick, frothy lace rings. The nose is pleasantly not overly Speyside in nature which is a great start for me; very smoky (both from the chipotle and the scotch), bakers’ chocolate, burnt caramel, some burnt dark breads, faint figs, and light vanilla. The barrels seem to drown out some of the malts from the flavor; light bakers’ chocolate, still very smoky, chipotle towards the finish, malt flavoring, dry oak, and some roasted coffee in the back. The palate is seemingly less than medium, watery, silky, and nearly lively. The beer finishes long with chocolate syrup, dark coffee roast, and chipotle heat. I actually just saw the "Barrel Aged" and instantly was excited, but I got home and noticed it was the Speyside version. However, the scotch was quite subdued in the nose. The original is better but this is very nice as well.
