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.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2011. Pours a pitch black beer with a weak hocolate head. The aroma is malt, roasted, sweetness, chocolate, soy and notes of green pepper. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is chiliwarmth and sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 20, 2011
Angenehmer Malzantrunk mit Noten eines vollen Aschenbechers, sprich eine sehr trockene Rauchigkeit. Dann aber weich mit minimaler alkoholischer Schärfe, sehr angenehm. Darüber hinaus ist der Abgang lange und weniger trocken als zuvor. 10/12/11/11//12

How many disparate flavors can you jam into one beer? Smoke, spice, chocolately sweetness, hoppy bitterness; this beer has them all and somehow manages to establish its own voice. A decent one at that. BBF, 2011.
