Dark brown with little beige head. Aroma is coffee, fresh brewed coffee. No chocolate, not very deep. Taste is sweet caramel at first (brown sugar maybe) with sudden coffee bitterness later. Very balanced. Fuck yeah! All styles! BlackBeerPG (1015) - Darien, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2017
Taste: rich, malty, sweet as they come, raisins, toffee, vanilla, smooth, but some alcohol bite. Same with the nose. Mahogany/copper hue, mostly clear, tan head some sticky lace. Medium/Full body. Warming finish, good purchase.

Pours brown with a medium beige head. A heavy aroma consists of earthy malt, raisin, cherry, and peat. Of these, the fruity elements seem to be most pronounced. The taste is sweet and does a good job covering the booze. Its still earthy and presents strong caramel and molasses flavors. Raisin, fig, and subtle cherry round this out. Short caramel finish. Full bodied, thick in texture, and softer in carbonation. I also get a bit of a whiskey burn. Hard hitting, the potency in this one hits you right away. However, its delicious and is a must try. ryecatcher (1474) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2017

Not too much smoke in the nose, to which I say thank goodness this time around. Instead, just a hint of peat under a light nose of cherry leather. Opaque redish brown in a small goblet. Taste is a bit more malty and almost creamier than almost any Scottish style brew I’ve had. Thick mouthfeel. With a nearly chewy texture. Dark dried cherry predominates, a bit of treacle sweetness, with just a hint of English hop. I keep looking for lighter sumer beer specials this June, but these wonderful heavy brews keep turning up.
