McNeillR (1632) - SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Dense black pour, lasting tan head. Dark and liquoricey dried fruit nose. Tight carbonation takes away a big sweep of moreishness on the initial taste. Sleekit finish, fatty almost gravy malt.

Bottle, Gunnar Tasting

12oz bottle that’s been aging in my cellar for two years. Pours a watery, dark brown with some fading, cloudy off white head. Nose was nice, a little dusty, pitted fruits, prunes, plum, brown sugar, some black pepper. A little thin in the mouth but overall dry. Flavor is sweet, brown sugar, some light toast, some light coffee, a little red grape juice, malt, molasses cookies. I was very pleased with how this had aged.

12 oz bottle, purchased at Max’s during BBW 2010. Pours a dark chocolate brown, with a thin tan head that fades to a thin collar and no lace. Rich, roast nose of malt of chocolate, raisin, plum and brown sugar. Slightly thin, watery body with light carbonation, but flavor is holding up and follows the nose. Brown sugar, caramel malt, and light roast start the flavor and finish with a stronger roast and molasses chewiness. Finish has a little cardboard and oxidization, but otherwise this is tasting better now than it did fresh. Thankfully, you can taste how rare this is (which covers up the age for the most part) and as far as Stillwater dark beers go (ok, I’m only comparing this to Folklore) is much prepared.
