2015 Release in 750ml bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a bit of head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of hazelnuts from the bottle as it opens. Chocolate flavor with mild hazelnut. A little hot still.

Bottle. Pours a pure black color with a small white head. Very nice viscous body. The aroma is just nuts when you smell the wax. I mean, damn that wax was made of some sort of essence of hazelnuts and it skews it because the beer doesn’t smell like that at all. I mean, it is similar but nowhere near as robust. The beer has hazelnuts but none of the perfumy cake. The flavor is sharp, hot, hazelnuts, roast, sugary sweet almost rum base. Complex. Too much- yes.

Check another beer from The Bruery off the bucket list. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of oak, bourbon, chocolate and hazelnuts. The flavor is similar with a heavy chocolate-covered hazelnut component dominating. You also get some brown sugar and oak as well as the booziness you expect from The Bruery’s big beers. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.

BenH (3088) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle thanks to team Garvie. Black with tan head. Aroma is heavy on the chocolate, roasty, slight nuttyness in the background, coconut. Taste is super chocolatey, hot alcohol, dried fruit, prune. Quite sweet and a little hot. I think these beers would be better if they weren’t as strong

McNeillR (1779) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2015
Fairly opaque brown, wee glint but solid murk. No head but thick, spirit style lacing. Big boozy bourbon; nutty and blackcurranty with a bit more needlessly terse spirits behind. Initial taste is rich, suprisingly sippable and gags of rich choc early on. Moves into a cultured nuttiness, then full on barrell paddling. Carbonation...I’ve no idea, the booziness is too rich here and then it paddles out with a spike on the mouthfeel. Finishes slicks oily malt, odd roastiness and then more boozy barrel. I think theres more greasy nut sweetness than coconut good times here but for being double the ABV of anything else I’ve had in a while...par excellence.
