Bubeer (488) - - OCT 13, 2016
Barrel Aged Oatmeal Stout Islay Edition, 8.1% ABV. Pitch black. Medium beige head, medium retention. Aroma intensity 3.75/5. In the nose, peat smoke covering spruce from the hops. Malt in a second approach, together with dough. Medium sweet wrapping a spot on bitter. Texture could be thicker. Carbonation could have been less fizzy Peterbia (28) - Garcia, SPAIN - AUG 24, 2016
Pours with gold and a bit big quite head. Very impressive. I like this beer a lot. Definitely have it back. allmyvinyl (11073) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 29, 2015

First wee tasting of the summer McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Murky amber brown, opaque. Decent crater of a tan head, not much lacing. Blackberry, oddly floral and thick roast. Taste is plum, real tarry roast and fluffy bitterness. Bullish enough mouthfeel, thins out quickly. Finishes a bit burnt toast, a bit vibrant blackberry linger. GlasgowTAD (1986) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015

Bottle from Systembolaget, bought in May 2012. SirLimpsalot (4550) - SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2015
Black with a small tan head. Fairly mild with chocolate, whisky, ash and some light caramel. Medium body and low carbonation. A descent one.
@ Gyllenbock 15-3-23: trevliga ganska balanserade whiskeytoner. Smaken ganska rik på choklad. En lagom whiskeyton. Lätt, len god.

From my Secret Santa Blomster via my cellar. Bottle 763/1051. Stuu666 (15056) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2014
Black pour with a generous tan head.
Complex aroma of roast malt,dark fruits, whiskey, chocolate.
The flavor is lightly sweet balanced by a light bitterness. Complex following the aroma and evolving through different stages as it warms. Well done.
