3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black, with brown head that does not last long. Aroma is dark chocolate, heavy roasted, raisin, some alcohol (does not disturb), some peat (especially on the finish), a little bit of honey when warmed. Not sweet, but not very bitter as well. Overall, tasted like an Imperial Stout. Good one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Basically sweet and roasty tar. Flavourful as few beers, but this is potent stuff. I have had beers with much higher ABV, but something in this balance made it very hard to get down, very sweet underneath the roastiness. Still worth a try.

Bottle. Pours almost black, nice head. Aroma is dominated by the peated malt, but there are also notes of roasted malts, chocolate and honey. In taste there are flavours of peated and roasted malts, dark fruits and honey. Beer is full bodied, low carbonation, low bitterness. Very good, well balanced beer.
