Expensive but tastes reasonable. Smell peat like and is good. I would not spend the money! Glad to have it but will move on fairly quickly.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2014 Oily black. Aroma has a spirit slash schnapps quality. Taste is very complex, berries malt port like finish; like nothing else I’ve had. Heaps of dark fruit flavours like wine or port. ABV well hidden. Very complex. Palate not overbearing but also light. Overall, not an especially fun beer to drink but lots going on.

Pours deep brown nearly black with a medium, lacing, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla, wood, notes of whiskey and licorice notes. Sweet flavor, that ends up more dry. Medium to full bodied, oily to syrupy text. and soft carb. An excellent barley.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Poured a deep murky dark brown color with a thin dense tan head that fell to a ring. The aroma was rich port, figs, peat, and maple. Strong whisky flavors start and remain with peat and oaky flavors along with a pretty strong amount of vanilla. Dark fruit and anise come out a bit through the middle. Fairly sweet with the whisky peat and spiciness cutting that a bit. Smooth and creamy, good bit of carbonation with a crisp rough finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - 2011 - Sweet dark fruits, oak, roasted malts and some sweet whisky notes. Inky black with a thin brown head. Sweet dark molasses and fig. Versus the regular there is alot of oak and sweetness, which although nice it overwhelms the nice complexity of the original.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 75cl from Mondial. A dark beer almost without head. Nose is on caramel, burnt caramel, very malty. Aroma is in velvet fruits such as quetches and currant, not too sweet, lot of caramel and light burnt caramel, light smoked notes, quite creamy, smooth with some dark chocolate notes. Typical Scottish profile, oak notes are low but whole beer is properly balanced, grape touch at the finish.
