Dark with little head. Toasted grains with chocolate note, some berry, and then a whiskey tang, sweetness nicely balanced with a mild floral and dry finish. Alcohol nice and warming on the tongue. One of the best.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Rating #1753 - 2015.06.25 - Bottle from CBI - Dated November 11 2013 - Rich dark brown-black pour with a weak white head that bubbles away quickly, no lacing. Aroma is earthy - presence of toasted barley, chocolate, coffee grounds, mild peaty smokiness.Mouthfeel is clean, low carbonation, medium alcohol warmth. Taste is a depth of chocolately, nutty roast malts, tinge of peat smoke, and tremendous character from the wood of the whisky casks - vanilla, oaky. A truly gorgeous concoction.

recently had this shared by a friend, side by side with the base, which was a treat. Not close to the same beer, though. Not only is there a good deal of whiskey and oak here, it’s also way stronger and everything about the regular DI is amplified. There’s also a slight smoke character. Good brew!
